Closing apps don’t prevent iPhone battery drain

Your job is to prevent your iPhone battery drain from working through the day. Tapping the home button twice and swipe after every 10 minutes in a day for years results in ZERO. Instead, a long breath may help to drain body weight rather than iPhone battery.


From ancient history of iPhone or iPad, users have been practicing the method.

  1. Double tap the home button.
  2. Swipe Up to kill(metaphor) an app.

Millions of iPhone or iPad users have perfected their skill to kill apps. Among the followers, Caleb raised his hand to question Tim Cook.

Caleb: Do you quit your iOS multitasking apps frequently and is this necessary for battery life? Just wanting you to put this controversy to rest!

Craig Federighi: No and No.

Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, responded toward the email sent to Tim Cook.

The fact behind Bars

No one wants an unused app to feed on device battery. Closing it down manually may help but won’t harm the battery at least!

Every time YOU open the multi tasking bar YOU are reducing the battery life swiping through the multi tasking bars by YOURSELF.

The logic of App preview in multi tasking screen is this: these are visual bookmark images or history of Apps used in past hours. Apple has been smart enough from the start to close down apps by itself automatically rather than manually.

Seems most possible reason of neglecting battery usage for multi tasking screen.

The force or manual closure of apps are only meant when an app freezes or become unresponsive.

Apps that perform in the background like music player, GPS run on battery only after activation.

“After you switch to a different app, some apps run for a short period of time before they’re set to a suspended state. Apps that are in a suspended state aren’t actively in use, open, or taking up system resources.”
