Change display settings
Your display is costly to battery usage, so you want it to shut down quickly when you aren’t using it.
Go to Setting > General > Auto-lock and see if you can live with a shorter time before the screen auto-locks. Set the brightness as low as you can and only adjust it up when needed and you’ll save a decent chunk of power.

If you are in an area with a poor signal then you should switch Airplane mode on, which stops the constant searching that causes drain your battery quickly. You might consider using WI-FI instead of cellular data whenever possible too, it’s a great deal you can do about that offers a more stable connection and will stop all that battery using searching for a signal.

Stop the animations
You don’t need animated backgrounds and ‘3D effects. They are fun but reduce the battery power. Pick a static image or a favorite photo in Settings > Wallpapers & Brightness, then choose Wallpapers and turn to Reduce Motion on in Settings > General > Accessibility.
Get email manually

Generally speaking, updates bring improvements. But it doesn’t hurt to check the feedback from others before you pull the trigger on a software update. Go to Settings > General > Software update to alter the automatic settings. Don’t let your content update automatically either.
Go to Settings > iTunes & App Store and consider turning all automatic downloads off. That way you can choose when to update.
Turn off Vibrations
You can turn off vibrations in Settings > Sound you can toggle ‘Vibrate on Ring to off’. Also, go to Settings > Sounds > New Mail > Vibration and set it to none. That way saves the battery life.
