Another way to optimise your phone’s battery life is to turn off functions and services that you aren’t currently using. Open up your OnePlus 12’s Control Panel and disable functions such as Location, NFC, Mobile Data or Wi-Fi, depending on what you’re currently using your phone to do. 

If you need any of the functions you’ve disabled, then simply open up your Control Panel and switch them back on.
