4 Location-Based Apps
Many apps use your location for one thing or another. But for this category, we’re talking about apps that are predominantly navigation- or location-based. It turns out that most of these apps are poison for battery life.
That includes third-party navigation apps like Google Maps or Waze, of course. But ride share apps like Uber are also terrible for your battery life. For Uber specifically, that’s because Location Services is set to “Always” by default.
Like with social media apps, you’ll want to go to Settings > Privacy > Location and make sure that these apps are set to While Using. Otherwise, they’ll continue to eat up battery life — even if you’re not actively navigating or calling a rideshare.
