Close down your Apps that are not being used, except for the iDmobile App of course! Lower the brightness of the screen, turn off location, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi if you're not needing them.

Close all unnecessary windows, use power saving mode and carry a power bank to top up battery
Turn off location and all windows not being used. NEVER LET YOUR PHONE DISCHARGE..this will prolong longevity of battery. Carry a portable power charger so you are never without power.

On iPhone as that’s the phone I always use, make sure that you have a healthy battery in setting batter battery health and if you do or don’t to make it last longer, turn off background app refresh and airdrop as well as turning off notifications for apps you don’t use or want them for as that means that the ouch notification service isn’t constantly checking that app for notifications.
Closing apps that are not in use is one way, charging battery at the lowest works too. Have the phone tel you if things are using more than they should.😉
Only turn on services when you use them (i.e. location, bluetooth, mobile data) and turn them off again afterwards. Close down apps when you're finished with them. And keep screen brightness on auto.

the screen is the main battery drain; reduce brightness and stop checking phone as often. Also turn off Bluetooth, kill apps and turn off background app refresh on unnecessary apps.
Turn off wifi and data roaming when not in use
Ultra power saving mode and turn down your screen brightness

Lower brightness of screen, turn off anything not required. Use a battery saving mode on your phone... or just carry an extra battery!

Use the auto screen brightness setting
Close any apps not in use. Ensure location services in all Apps are set to be on only when the app is is use (if you want them on). Turn off bluetooth when not used. Turn auto screen brightness off and turn down the brightness of the screen.

Use a Nokia 3310 and the battery lasts about a month, that’s what my Dad does. Haha
