Save Battery Charge on Your iPhone

iPhone running low on battery chargeDid you know that allowing background apps on your iPhone to continually refresh uses a lot of power, and can draining your battery?

You can control whether the Background App Refresh option is turned ‘On’ or ‘Off’ overall, or adjust this option for individual apps.

To turn the Background App Refresh off altogether:

Select the Settings option from your iPhone’s Home screen…

Select the ‘General’ option…

Select ‘Background App Refresh’ and slide the button at the top into the off position. NB: If the overall Background App Refresh option is currently ‘On’, the button will appear green (as will the buttons for specific apps listed underneath if the option is turned ‘On’), and greyed out if ‘Off’, as with Facebook below.
