Tips To Fix Battery Drain Issue Xiaomi 12T Pro

Here are some solutions you can try to reduce overheating on your Xiaomi 12T Pro.

1. Check Battery Usage

Some apps on the phone can consume a lot of battery. It is better to check their battery usage. Use the steps below to check the battery usage:

  • Go to Settings » Battery » Show Full Device Usage.
  • Check the battery usage of every app.
  • From there go and check the app usage for the past 24 hours.

Identify the apps with the highest battery consumption and restrict their battery usage from the menu or uninstall them.

2. Uninstall Unused Apps

Android will always supply the same amount of power to each app installed on your phone irrespective of whether you are using them or not. That’s why, if there are way too many apps on your phone, uninstall the apps that you have not used for a long time. This can help to prevent batter drain.

3. Turn Off Auto Brightness

Auto brightness is a nice feature that helps to protect your eyes. This feature automatically adjusts the screen brightness depending on the ambient light.

However, to automatically increase or reduce the screen brightness, the feature uses a lot of battery power. Turn off the feature to maintain a steady brightness and increase battery life.

While speaking on this topic, it is necessary to mention that the high screen brightness of your Xiaomi 12T Pro can quickly drain the phone battery. Use a moderate brightness that is easy on your eyes when you are indoors and allows you to read the screen easily when you are outside.

4. Turn Off NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth

NFC, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth are excellent technologies. However, they consume a lot of battery power to operate. Hence, leaving them turned on when not in use is not an ideal thing to do.

You must turn on those features only when you need them. Turning them off is quite simple. Pull down the notification center from the top by swiping it down from the top of the screen and tapping on the relevant icons to turn them off. Once turned off, they must turn grey.

5. Disable Non-Useful Notifications

Apps keep sending notifications. However, they use the phone’s network to push those notifications. This consumes battery power. Hence, it is important to turn off notifications for apps that are not so important. To disable non-useful notifications, follow the steps below:

  • Open the Settings app and then tap on Apps.
  • You will list a list of apps installed on your phone. Now, uncheck the ‘Show Notification’ box.

6. Update Your Phone’s Operating System

Software glitches can cause battery drain. Xiaomi keeps releasing new updates from time to time to remove bugs and optimize battery life. Keep an eye out for the available updates and install them whenever available.

7. Reduce Gameplay

Games are one of the biggest culprits for battery drain. It is important that you stop playing games or at least, reduce the gameplay. Also, try to play games that are not resource-intensive. For example, games with high-quality graphics (such as action games) can consume your phone’s battery very quickly.

8. Reduce Screen Timeout Duration

Keeping a longer duration for screen timeout will drain your phone’s battery quickly.  Reduce the duration to 15 or 30 seconds. This means that when you are not actively using your phone, the screen will power off.

9. Reset Your Xiaomi 12T Pro

This is of course the last resort. If none of the above methods are working, reset your phone to see if the issue is resolved. Here are the steps you must follow:

  • Go to Settings » System » Reset Options.
  • On the next screen, tap on ‘Factory Data Reset.’

Remember that when you use this option, all your data will be wiped out. So, backup your contacts and essential data before you proceed.
