(MENAFN -Arab News) People know that I am an avid Apple fan, and I take my “Appleism” very seriously; and unless you’ve been hibernating for the last few years, you have grown accustomed to having your mobile phone with you at all time. It is your calendar, your to-do list, your business, your family album, your music and movies, and most of all, you can make calls and send messages.Unfortunately, many people are unfair to their iPhones, they abuse it, and for that, here are some things you’re probably doing wrong with your iPhone:1. Never turning it off: You really should be turning your phone off periodically, or your battery will die faster than it should. Leaving it on and idle stresses the battery.2. Leaving the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on all the time: When your iPhone has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled and isn’t using one or both, it’s just wasting energy hence battery life. As you wander around in your daily life, you’re not likely going to need or want Wi-Fi or Bluetooth all the time. You’re better leaving both off, and just turning them on when you need them. It will take you 1 seconds to do that, believe you me. Hint: Control Center.3. Using it outside in extreme weather: Your iPhone isn’t meant to withstand super hot or super cold temperatures, and using it outside when it’s under 0 degrees or above 35 degrees Celsius isn’t recommended. You can drain the battery, or your phone might shut off temporarily. Try keeping your iPhone off in extreme weather or at least in your pocket, away from the elements.4. Keeping it plugged in overnight: Letting your iPhone charge while you sleep might be convenient, but it’s not a good idea. Leaving your iPhone plugged in after it’s already fully charged can damage your battery over time, and it could start dying more quickly. Try charging it during the day so you can unplug it once it’s fully charged.5. Using a non-Apple charger: Using a non-Apple charger can do damage to your phone, and fake chargers have been reported to cause fires and explosions. Apple has even created a USB Power Adapter Takeback Program, in which it asks people to hand over counterfeit chargers, and, as of last August, offered people who brought in their non-Apple chargers a discount on a real Apple charger, hopefully this will see light with Apple’s “exclusive resellers” in the kingdom.6. Not cleaning it: Mobile phones have 18 times more bacteria than a toilet handle! Apple recommends that you use “a soft, lint-free cloth” to clean your iPhone. There are also products that claim to use UV lights to sanitize your phone.7. Filming in portrait mode: No more vertical video please! 8. Not protecting yourself with a passcode: According to Apple, half of iPhone users do not lock their phones. If you don’t have a passcode on your iPhone and it’s stolen, your identity and personal information is completely open and available for the thief to grab. It’s a simple way to protect your privacy.— Bilal Hallab (@bilalhallab) is personally an Apple brand advocate and professionally the General Manager & Head Social Business Strategist of The Social Clinic, a social business consultancy based in Jeddah.
