I don’t think anyone will be shocked when I tell you FACEBOOK is the number one app killing your phone. Probably closely followed by Instagram.
This is what mine top battery killers are! Facebook could eat up to 47% of your battery in a day which is HUGE!
But never fear! We have some tips and tricks how to cut down on your battery use to make your phone last a little longer this weekend!
- Turn off Facebook’s video autoplay feature! This feature may seem great in theory but it is a huge battery killer! (Go into Facebook app settings, then account settings, next tap Videos and Photos, and turn off autoplay.)
- Don’t let Facebook access your location:I know you want all your friends to know where you are, but it’s okay not to. Your GSP is always working to find your location which is simply going to drain that battery! (Go into Facebook app settings, then account settings, tap location, and turn off the app’s ability to use your location.)
- Cut background refresh for Facebook: You don’t realize how much your apps are running in the background until you can’t begin to understand why your battery went from 100 to 75 in an hour! (Go into your iPhone’s settings app, scroll down to Facebook, tap settings, and turn off background app refresh.)
- TURN DOWN THE BRIGHTNESS ON YOUR SCREEN! Come on! You don’t need it THAT bright! Especially if you are waking up in the middle of the night and had *that* incident of feeling like your eyeballs are going to burn up with how bright that light was! (Go into settings, then display and brightness, and switch off auto-brightness and keep the screen down to a comfortable place.)
