Apple Confirms Whether Killing Apps Actually Saves Battery Or Not

Publish date:

Everyone I know kills their apps because they think it saves battery life, and although I tell myself it doesn't work like that, I still find myself doing it anyway - it just makes sense that closing apps would make your phone consume less power.

Well now Apple's iOS chief Craig Federighi has dispelled the myth that force closing your iPhone apps will help save your battery. The executive confirmed that killing apps isn't necessary for your battery and said that he is not in the habit of closing his apps.

This was in response to an email sent by a customer to Apple CEO Tim Cook, asking if he closed his apps. Federighi weighed in the next day stating that Tim doesn't close his apps, nor does it help battery life.


That's that sorted. Next time you see someone closing their apps to save battery, share share this page with them.
