It seems like every single day we’re told that one of our long-held views is wrong, or the way we’ve been undertaking somewhat our whole lives isn’t right.

Apparently in trying to close the apps on our IPhone to try and save battery is the latest thing that we all been doing wrong.

Technology Expert John Gruber has written a long post that in fact it doesn’t save battery but drain it faster.

In it he wrote: “Not only does force quitting your apps not help, it actually hurts. Your battery life will be worse and it will take much longer to switch apps if you force quit apps in the background.

John pens in the blog, is that the ingenious people who create iPhones have planned the Apple iOS to be power effective. So, when you change between apps, without terminating it, your phone will kind of ‘freeze’ it and, while in this on hold state, it will use barely any power at all until you renew it.

Whereas, if you close the app, you’re forcing the phone totally shut it down and then when you do come to boot it up again, it will use even more of your battery to boot it up from the beginning.
