Facebook is one of the most downloaded apps on iOS but it has long been cited as a cause of fast-draining iPhone batteries. Last year it was accused of using background tricks to stay active even when it wasn’t being used. Facebook admitted bugs existed, and fixed them, but questions of the app’s impact on battery life remained.
Similar concerns about Facebook’s Android app led to the discovery that deleting the app saves up to 20% of a phone’s battery. The same was true for iPhone users.Uninstalling Facebook’s iOS app and switching to Safari can save up to 15% of iPhone battery life.This test was conducted with many ios users and results were similar and saved several hours of backup.
Using Facebook in Safari was almost as good as the app. You can even place a shortcut to Facebook in Safari on the homescreen that looks almost identical to the app’s icon. The only restriction was the Share-to function, which does not exist for websites, meaning that to share photos you have to manually hit the “post photos” button on the mobile site.
So Iphone users can use Facebook in their Safari Browser as it give similar experience and will maintain good battery life.
