Five Ways To Optimize Your iPhone Use During NYFW

If you’re one of the “lucky ones” underneath the New York Fashion Week tents at Lincoln Center, chances are that you’re using your smartphone to death.  More than likely, your smartphone is your precious baby that you use to connect with others on and offline.  You use your smartphone to share your fashionable experiences, chronicle style moments and more – but did you know that you may not be using your smartphone correctly?  Check out five ways to optimize your iPhone use during NYFW below…

Letting your iPhone charge while you sleep at night might be convenient, but it’s not the best way to keep your iPhone damage free during this busy week.  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 throughout the days you can unplug it once it’s fully charged.

 

2.  Give Your iPhone a Time Out…

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, experts say.  If you, like me – use your phone as an alarm clock, consider picking up a cheap desktop alarm and shut your phone off at night  (you’ll save radiation exposure AND give your smartphone the break that it deserves.)

 

3.  Stop Leaving the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Enabled All the Time…

When your iPhone has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled and isn’t using one or both, it’s just wasting energy.  As you wander around, navigating throughout the city for your next show, you’re not likely going to need or want Wi-Fi or Bluetooth all the time.  You’re better off leaving both off and just turning them on when you need them.

4.  Filming shows in portrait mode…

Hey you!  Did you know that you’re actually supposed to film videos horizontally – not vertically?  You’ve seen those videos filmed in vertically mode – not cute.  Film your awesome fashion week moments the correct way, so that your friends and family can enjoy them without the “black frame of death”.

 

5.  Protect Your iPhone 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.  And while you’re at it – quit walking around with your iPhone in your hand.  Around 40 percent of the robberies in major cities (including NYC) now involve mobile devices, so it’s actually pretty dangerous to walk around carelessly with your iPhone out.

 

If you keep these tips in mind while navigating through the fashion week chaos, your iPhone will thank you and last as long as you do!  Did we miss anything?  What are your favorite smartphone tips and tricks you use during New York Fashion Week?  Share your ideas and tips below.
