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.
If your battery life is still suffering, it might be best to cut back on your app usage altogether. If cutting back is simply not an option, investing in a high-powered portable battery pack will keep your iPhone running all day long. Some battery packs even feature a solar charging panel for ultimate freedom from electrical outlets.
