A lot has been spoken loud about fighting the battery issues on your iPhone. There have been device charging hacks, uninstalling the Flashlight app and even getting rid of default apps. There have been a lot of myths getting strangely promoted about saving the iPhone's battery life and making it stay longer.
Well, Apple has just busted the most common yet ridiculously popular iPhone battery life hack and here's what they have to say:
"Do you quit your iOS multitasking apps frequently and is this necessary for battery life?"
"No and No. :-)"
In fact, it was supported by many reputable publications as well.
"Many people think that force-quitting these apps will at the very least do no harm since "they aren't running anyways." The logic of "...you might as well quit, just in case" comes into play..."
He continues, "The very process of quitting an app will use up a measurable amount of battery life. There are times when the device may need those resources and it will quit the app on your behalf, which will drain the battery in the same fashion. However, modern smartphones have an abundance of memory and you would be surprised how often an app can just stay suspended forever. This is doubly true for any app that you are frequently launching and using, these apps in all likelihood will never need to be closed and the repetitive exiting and relaunching can have a very noticeable toll on your battery life."
