After the post on how to get maximum usable hours out of your iPhone through Settings tweaks, emails started coming in asking about if there is anything can be done to make the battery last. Since the battery is ‘built in’, iPhones and Touch devices have to be returned to Apple for battery replacements. Apple has posted that they expect the batteries to take over 300 cycles of charge/discharge before the ability to hold a charge (usable hours) drops dramatically.

Apple posted on their site a few tips to keep the battery in good condition – take a quick look, many are common sense and will keep you from having to be without your device in the near future while it gets it’s battery replaced.
