We know many of you are feeling the wrath of Hurricane Sandy which is thought to be one of the biggest storms to hit the U.S. ever. Early reports are indicating that as many as 10 million people might be without power from West Virginia to Main and even as far west as Chicago. Here at iHospital, we know you rely on your iPhone’s for communicating with relatives and family, weather alerts, storm trackers and other important information. If you live in an area affected by Sandy, here are five ways to keep your iPhone charged during a power outage:
1. Turn off apps
If you’re looking for ways to conserve your iPhone’s battery during a power outage, turning off unnecessary apps is the first place to start. Some of your favorite apps constantly run in the background of your iPhone unless you turn them off. Double click your home button and turn off all apps you don’t need and turn off your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to save power.
