IMPROVE YOUR IPHONE BATTERY LIFE WITH THESE TWO EASY SETTING CHANGES…

1. Settings > Privacy > Location Services and disable the toggle next to Facebook. (Making the green color go away, no green means off)

2. Settings > General > Background App Refresh and disable the toggle next to Facebook. (Making the green color go away, no green means off)

It turns out one of the most popular apps we all run, Facebook, could be the one of the biggest battery drains.

By making the changes above you should see a 5 -15% battery life increase. Turning off these two settings do not drastically affect your experience with Facebook on your phone.
