IF you’re often losing charge on your iPhone, some of your favorite apps may be adding to the problem.
Five of the apps in the top 20 are actually extremely popular and have billions of users when combined.
Social media and communication apps get a ton of usage leading to a spent battery – but they also break a few golden rules of battery efficiency.
Understandably, you may not want to part with these apps but you can take measures to make them drain your battery less.
For example, you can add a time limit to your Facebook app so you stop opening it all the time.
You can also try using dark mode if it’s available so your screen brightness isn’t contributing to battery drain.
Sharing your location for prolonged periods can also drain your battery.
If you do this on Snapchat, WhatsApp or Facebook you may want to reconsider.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has been called out for draining batteries.
According to Uswitch, the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps are two of the “biggest drains on our batteries”.
Facebook can run constantly in the background, accessing a wide range of permissions.
