Tip Three: Watch Those Apps
Be sure to turn off any app that you are not using. For example; if you, like us, like playing games, watch YouTube videos, and scroll through every meme on your social feeds, it would be wise to close them once you get to work. However, keep apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Twitter (any app you consistently use) open, as launching apps takes a lot of data and battery life. Another important factor to remember is automatic app updates and refreshes – these not only require data but, cell power.
How to monitor your apps:
- Go to Settings
- Click on General
- Select Background App Refresh
- Disable the apps that you rarely use, or are happy to update only when you open them
