iPhone Settings To De-Weaponize it?

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

I stumbled upon this somehow by accident.

A friend posted a video about how to optimize the iPhone so that it doesn’t use so much battery.

I said cool, I have this iPhone, and I use it quite a lot recently, though ideally the recommendation is to stay away from mobile phones, or use them only for limited time, when needed, and then switch them to airplane mode or shut off completely.

Good, so the video suggests some settings, so that the battery lasts longer.

Among the settings, one are related to turning off some Siri features, some visual features, and.. I think this is the important bit: turning off background app refresh for all apps.

I’ve done those changes, and INSTANTLY felt better around my phone. Like.. it was somehow weaponised, or maybe it was unintended.. though my idea in simple terms is that those apps running in the background were constantly sending data and the phone was pretty much microwaving everything around.

I suggest to try this, if you are using a phone.. Not sure about Android phones, I tried to find the background app refresh setting, but it seems for the Android I played with the default is OFF for background app refresh.

Send me an email please if this helped. Maybe my phone was “special” and I am wrong… ๐Ÿ™‚
