When your iPhone battery dies after a few hours and renders your phone impossible to use for most of the day, you know you have unresolved tech issues on your hands. You don’t have to and shouldn’t be satisfied with a less-than-stellar phone experience, especially given the fact that you invested a lot in your phone.
One way to instantly increase battery power is by simply trimming certain apps off of your device. And although deleting apps can be painful, you will get used to not having them and can benefit from a better overall iPhone experience when your phone is free of these battery-sucking culprits. Apple experts say you should delete this one app on your iPhone to increase its battery life.
We may all love the filters on Snapchat, but Alvin Wei, the co-founder and CMO of SEOAnt, warns that this video-sharing app is one of the biggest battery drainers you can have on your iPhone.
More than just the energy it consumes to load videos, Snapchat also consistently wants to know your location, and doing this drains more battery power.
Snapchat is known to consume up to a whopping 45% of your iPhone battery when used for a few hours each day. Deleting the app could mean your battery charge lasting up to half a day longer than when having it installed.”
Alvin Wei said
Deleting Snapchat provides a fast, effective way to gain back valuable battery power. But if you continue experiencing rapid battery drainage, it may be time to evaluate how some of the other social media apps that you use are effectively your power source.
Delete Social Media Apps
The unfortunate reality is that several social media apps (including Snapchat) are bad news for your battery. Leon Bierhals, the CTO of WREI.org, each app has different effects on battery life, but deleting them all will help.
Deleting Facebook can save you up to 20% of your battery life, and deleting Instagram can save you up to 25%. So if you’re looking to improve your iPhone’s battery life, deleting these three apps is a great place to start.”
Leon Bierhals said.
If you aren’t excited about deleting social media and rely on some of these outlets to keep you in touch with others and the larger world outside of your window, consider keeping one and deleting the rest. In some cases, as with Facebook and Twitter, accessing these sites via your browser instead of an app can also help save battery power. You have options. Settling for diminished battery power and an iPhone that can’t hold its charge needn’t be your fate.
