While a low battery may be a fact of life for heavy smartphone users, in many cases, a lot of the blame can actually be placed on the apps that are frequently used.
Facebook is notorious for being a battery-heavy app, even when running in the background. Due to the way it tracks location and incoming notifications constantly. Here’s how to make the best of it.
Uninstall the Facebook app and use Safari to access your account instead. You can even add a Safari shortcut to your Home screen (in the following step) to make logging in via browser easier.
Open Safari, load Facebook.com, and tap on the arrow-and-square Share icon on the bottom, and tap Add to Home Screen. Come up with a name for your shortcut and you’re golden.
