(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Since being launched last month, Apple’s iOS 7 has received some great feedback. Unfortunately though, not everyone is having a seamless transition to the new mobile OS. There have been some reported problems related to things like iMessage, motion sickness caused by graphics and of course, battery drain (an all too common issue in the smartphone market).
And while there are numerous issues to address, in this post we’ll be focusing on how to correct any battery problems. According to a CNN report, battery problems were most persistent in older iPhone devices such as the 4S. Thankfully, there’s a pretty easy solution and it involves shutting down apps that you don’t need that are running in the background.
This can be accessed by simply going to “Settings,” selecting “General” then choosing “Background App Refresh.”
CNN’s report, which also included the above instructions, mentioned that switching off unneeded features like GPS, Bluetooth and screen brightness can also help save battery life.
Earlier this month, we mentioned that some users were confused about how to close apps in iOS 7. Thankfully, however, the answer was pretty simple as all you have to do is swipe up on app cards after hitting the home button.
