Apple confirms force quitting apps won't prolong battery life
Submitted by Marshall Walker on
It has always been a popular belief that force quitting apps in the app switcher will help preserve your battery life, but Apple iOS chief Craig Federighi has finally put the rumor to rest. A 9to5Mac reader decided to ask Apple CEO Tim Cook via email, if he "quits his multitasking apps frequently and if this is necessary for battery life." Cook forwarded the email to Federighi who replied "no and no" thus ending the controversy.
