Through all the praise, jeers and shouts, one question stands out in all iOS 7 users’ minds: How can I make the battery life longer? No matter which device you’re using, Apple’s gadgets have always had an issue in maximizing battery life. So, here are a few tips to help extend the battery life on your iOS 7 updated devices:
