6 Social Media Sites
There’s no doubt that social media platforms are popular, but they can be particularly bad for your battery life. While Facebook is a notable offender, apps like Snapchat and Instagram don’t fare much better.
- Specifically for Facebook, you can try uninstalling the app, and then use Safari to use the social media site instead. You can head to Facebook.com and use the Add to Home Screen trick via the Share Sheet in Safari to make it more convenient.
- Snapchat has a Travel Mode that’ll save battery life. In Snapchat, Tap the Ghost/Bitmoji icon > Gear Icon > Manage.
- For other social media apps, it’s helpful to go into Settings > Privacy > Location Services and set them to While Using.
- You can also try disabling Background App Refresh — this has a good effect on battery life.
