Raise your hand if you’ve ever shut down apps when you’re battery was running low because you thought it would save your battery life? Don’t be ashamed; you’re not the only one.
I think we’ve all heard that closing apps would save the iPhone’s infamous battery life. The problem is…. The opposite is happening when you close the apps. In other words, you are DRAINING your battery doing this.
It makes sense either way. You closed the apps because you thought when they are running, they are draining your battery. What’s really going on is you are using your battery much more when you close the apps. It has to work hard to do that, so then you lose even more battery life than leaving the apps open.
Who came out with this? Apple technician and Martiancraft CEO Kyler Richter says, “Force-quitting suspended apps will under most circumstances drain your battery faster than simply waiting for the user to return.”
What this means is that you shouldn’t close your apps unless you plan on plugging your phone in to recoup the battery life that it takes to close them all.
