Although it seems logical to close background apps on your iPhone to preserve battery life, doing so can be counterproductive.

According to Apple, swiping apps up to close them may slow down your device, as they’re typically in standby mode rather than actively running. Apple says: When your recently used apps appear, the apps aren’t open, but they’re in standby mode to help you navigate and multitask.”

When you exit certain apps, they continue running briefly before entering a suspended state. However, they are not actively in use, open, or consuming system resources once suspended.

Utilizing Low Power Mode on your iPhone is an intuitive method to disable energy-consuming features, effectively conserving battery life.

Access Low Power Mode by navigating to Settings, then Battery. Alternatively, customize the Control Center by adding Low Power Mode for quick toggling. Go to Settings, Control Center, Customize Controls, and select Low Power Mode.

Low Power Mode automatically deactivates when your iPhone reaches an 80% charge or higher, ensuring seamless battery management for prolonged device use.
