As a subsequent meet-up my article from yesterday, there have been thunderings that the GPS following that most clients have empowered on their Facebook FB +2.06% records could be what’s bringing about the huge battery channel. Yes, that helpful, to some degree dreadful, component that auto-tags your location and lets you know when your Facebook friends are doing things nearby could be what’s killing your iPhone battery.

Despite everything I believe there’s something else going ahead, since I have Location following set to Never on the application, regardless i’m seeing huge channel, around 12-15%. However , I’ve heard episodic proof of the Facebook application representing 30-half of day by day battery utilization on users’ phones . If that’s true , then continually running GPS could doubtlessly clarify that sort of battery draw (particularly in case you’re inside where the sign is powerless and the telephone needs to work harder to focus its area).

The best thing to do is disable Location tracking on the Facebook application out and out. In the event that you don’t have it turned on, the application won’t track you and won’t hit the GPS for information unless you particularly request it to tag a location for a post. How would you check whether you have it turned on? In the Facebook application, passage down behind the More icon into the settings until you find Location. If it says something other than Never, you’ll need to change that. In the event that Location History is chosen, you’ll want to disable that too.

Once you’ve confirmed Location tracking is on , head over to the iOS settings. Go to General > Restrictions > Privacy > Location. On the off chance that you have to empower confinements to get to the Restrictions menu, proceed, you can simply debilitate it again when you’re set. Once you’re there, scroll down to Facebook and set Allow Location Access to Never. Head back over to Facebook and affirm that Location following is incapacitated.

Once that is done, you ought to see the Facebook application expending fundamentally less battery. It’s still more than normal and given the profound coordination Facebook has in iOS, it’s worried that this sort of issue didn’t pop up before the current version was released to the App Store. When there’s a proper fix, I’ll let you know!
