A fellow member Ardchoille posted an article about how to save battery life. The step that really caught my eye was "Closing apps actually drains battery life.". That kept me thinking though, how could leaving apps open save battery life? When we all know, that force closing apps actually saves battery life. Apparently is was from a former employee from the genius bar. I found a few articles about it. Many articles support the theory. Here is what LifeHacker say's about this: There was a comment saying that mobile multitasking isn't like multitasking in a computer, where running multiple programs will slow down the device. In iOS, when you exit an app, it automatically "Freezes it". iOS already closes apps automatically to free up RAM. Force closing apps and opening them again can cause stress and that stress could drain battery life. I'm not even sure if I should follow this. But I sure hell will test this!
