Playing Pokémon Go on your iPhone? Check Out These 5 Awesome Tips

The Pokémon Go fever can’t be stopped, and so are iPhone users installing the game and having fun catching these pocket monsters on every spot on their Pokémon radars. Niantic’s augmented-reality game is a worldwide hit and is already causing numerous glitches, crashes, and in-game bugs while players are catching Pokémons at Pokéstops, Pokémon Gyms, and the pocket monsters themselves.

Some of the glitches that are spoiling the fun are occasional pauses during gameplay or getting stuck at Pokémon Gyms with your opponent at 1HP. These glitches aren’t surprising at all since the game has overwhelmed the world with its AR feature. While we are far from finding a magic button that can instantly rid of the bugs and glitches while playing, we have a number of tips that will improve your Pokémon hunting with your iPhone.

Here are the most common glitches and how to fix them:

1.) How to Minimise Battery Drain

a.) Adjust your Screen’s Brightness

This one’s a no-brainer and you need to save some battery by adjusting your screen’s brightness to continue playing the game. The best practice is to minimise the brightness when natural light isn’t too bright so you can still see what’s on your screen to catch a Pokémon.

b.) Lay low on AR Capability

Pokémon GO’s number one lure is to see these creatures using augmented reality. It’s amusing to see Psyduck or a Bulbasaur in your couch but you need to understand that too much AR activity can drain your battery. Best practice to save some battery life would be to only use the AR function whenever you’re on a hunt to catch a Pokémon.
