Facebook is fixing its battery-draining iOS app — until then here are your alternatives
Facebook’s iOS app is robust and fast, especially considering it gives you instant access to connect with over a billion people all over the world.
But that doesn’t mean that the app is free from flaws. One of the main issues with Facebook’s iOS app is that it’s constantly draining battery life. A few users even reported that Facebook has found a way to have the app run processes in the background, even when Background App Refresh has been disabled.
“That extraneous background usage, despite not providing any value to me at all, is keeping the app alive 2x longer than my actual usage,” Circa co-founder Matt Galligan wrote on Medium.
