Unbeknownst to many iPhone or iPad users, the apps that have location capability are automatically enabled. This is done all without your knowledge behind the scenes.
This becomes such an issue because when all of the apps are enabled, they are constantly giving out information about your location. They are running quietly in the background. Think of it as your phone working extra hours in order to make sure that all of these apps are updated with your exact location information. Your phone is not idle. It is working like gangbusters.
When it comes to the life of the battery, it is running out because it is working more in order to supply the power that your phone needs.
So, how do you fix it? Well, one good thing is that a lot of these apps you probably will never utilize. So, it does not make sense to have them location enabled. That will be less of a drain on your battery. So, use the following steps to fix this problem.
- First, go to your home screen
- Second, push Settings
- Third, go to Privacy
- Fourth, go to Location Services
- Last, sort through each App and turn off the location capability ( Make sure that each unused app is in the OFF position)
This might seem like such a hassle, but keep this in mind. If you do not turn them off, it will only decrease the life of your battery and your phone will continue to run slowly. Why have all of these apps enabled when you don’t really need them? Turn them off and you will see a huge difference.
