We’re all out here just trying to squeeze the most battery life out of our iPhones. Unfortunately, you’ve probably spent untold minutes? hours? days? of your life swiping up on apps in a fruitless effort to do so.
The man in charge of iOS at Apple, Craig Federighi, has confirmed that there is no need to bother killing your apps because it won’t help your battery life. Mashable reports that Federighi’s confirmation came in an email to an Apple customer, who had originally written to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
In an email that was later published on 9to5Mac, the customer wrote to Cook and asked, “do you quit your iOS multitasking apps frequently and is this necessary for battery life?”
