How To Configure Background App Refresh and Save Battery Life
September 15, 2020

Make your battery last longer.

While smartphones have gotten more advanced, it’s always the battery life that it simply couldn’t perfect. Having a large battery is great, but that means adding weight and bulk to a device that’s supposed to be lean and lightweight.

That being said, there have been a lot of software customizations that can help in managing how apps consume your battery. If you are using an iPhone, you can take advantage of iOS’ Background App Refresh menu to manually select which apps can run in the background.

Some apps require that it runs in the background to function properly. Messaging apps for example usually need this feature to be turned on so that you can always get your messages.

If you want to manually check which apps you want to run in the background, just follow these steps:

Open Settings and look for General.

Right in the middle, look for Background App Refresh.

You will then see a list of apps that run in the background. You can individually turn off the ones that you don’t use.

On top, there’s an extra setting that can also restrict background app functions if you’re on Wi-Fi or cellular data. This is great if you’re on a metered connection.
