Is it not time to leave the ranks of the “embracing walls” of fellow citizens who, in non-pictorial heaps, have occupied space near outlets in public places? The process of charging the smartphone’s battery is simple, but knowledge-based – owning knowledge makes life easier and takes full advantage of competent time management.

Do not use iPhone while charging
It is no exaggeration to say that in sleep mode, especially when turned off, the iPhone does not consume energy at all, and therefore the empty battery will fill up much faster.
Use hidden features for fast charging in Mac USB ports
Since 2007, in computers Apple An additional mode of increasing the current strength in the USB connector appeared, which entails an increase in the transmitted power. It is intended just in case of connecting particularly voracious consumers to the desktop, it is activated automatically. In this case, instead of the standard 500 mA for USB 2.0 or 900 mA for USB 3.0, a current of 1100 mA is supplied, for USB 3.1 – 1600 mA while maintaining the same voltage at 5 V. Moreover, the iPhone is in sleep mode, connected to USB port Mac will receive a current of as much as 2100 mA.
The conditions of use are simple – most of the all-in-ones, laptops and Macs support the increased power mode on only one port, all the others work normally. Which gadget will be first connected, that will receive more energy, consider this rule. For some models there are exceptions, detailed information can be found in the manual on the site Apple – if you bother to read it.
It is also worth considering the fact that fast charging from an Apple computer is guaranteed only by directly connecting the iPhone with a cable to the Mac port. For example, if you connect the same iPhone through some outdated USB hub (docking station) with USB 2.0 interface, then the naturally consumed current will be at the level of only 500 mA.
Below is a screenshot of the report on the system with the iPhone connected to the USB port 3.1 iMac via a hub with USB 2.0:
In other words, if you want to quickly charge your iPhone from the Mac USB port – plug it in directly and turn on sleep mode (press the side On button).

Turn on airplane mode
The speed increase is negligible, but it will take place due to a decrease in the load on the hardware of the smartphone. Inactive, the latter less “disturbs” the battery, does not take away the poured energy – the initial capacity will fill up faster. The secret is simple: 3G and Wi-Fi, which are one of the most resource-intensive iPhone modules, are automatically turned off in airplane mode. Of course, you can disable them manually, but then you have to press twice as many buttons – it’s easier to tap on “Airplane mode“.

Take off your case or take your iPhone out of your purse
The annual update of the range puts the wheels in the wheel of the engineers, they simply do not have time to work out the units of the devices properly, and the battery is rightfully considered the Achilles heel of the entire system. There is neither surprising nor pleasant in that it is far from symbolically heating up during recharging; there is no – the axillary space of the iPhone case is cramped and every cubic mm is filled with something. An additional source of heat is the processor – users with experience are not advised to run demanding applications when recharging the gadget. The direct recommendation for optimizing the battery charge speed is simple: remove the smartphone from the massive dense cover, leather bag, etc., before connecting the cable.

Use the original (or MFi) charger, or better for the iPad
In addition to the low charging speed, the use of non-original low-quality chargers can lead to failure of the hardware of the smartphone’s power system. In most cases, this applies to low-cost car chargers. Use only genuine or MFi (Made For iPhone) certified accessories to charge your iPhone.
If possible, use the charger from the iPad. The power of the standard charger for the iPhone is 5 watts (if you do not take into account the iPhone 11 Pro), its analogue for the iPad is 12 watts. As a result, the charging process will be faster.
