Double tap the main button then swipe up to close them down. However, the effectiveness of this depends on what type of app it is, and how often it wakes up in the background.


2) You’ve Got The Parallax Effect Running

This feature makes it look like apps are floating above the background when you move the phone. Sure, it’s cool and all, but it’s KILLING your battery. Here’s how to turn it off

Settings > General > Accessibility > Toggle Reduce Motion on.

Just set your screen’s brightness down just a bit. You’ll be surprised how much this will help. And while you’re at it, toggle off auto-brightness.


4) You Have Automatic Downloads Turned On

Yes, it’s a handy feature that let’s purchases you’ve made elsewhere appear magically appear on your phone, but if you need to save your battery life, turn that sucka off.


5) You Haven’t Turned Off “Air-Drop”
