How To Use iOS 8's New 'Battery Life' Feature

Well, by now the majority of iPhone users would have upgraded to iOS 8. The new OS update definitely packs in some exciting new features that were badly needed for a long, long time. Predictive keyboards, enhanced spotlight search and a tweaked camera app are just to name a few. One new feature that is sure to come very handy for battery hungry iPhones is the ‘Battery Life’ feature. The feature lets the users peek into how much battery is being consumed by each app on the phone. The break down lists the apps form the most battery consuming to the least.      

This is how to access the batter life feature:

Settings menu- Settings — General —Usage — Battery Usage.

The breakdown shows overall battery consumed by each app since the last recharge and also based on your last 24 hours of usage. Along with the battery consumption pattern, the stats also show information such as which app runs in the background and which apps are the most unused.

Which Apps Consume The Most Battery?

The answer to this is very simple. The apps that consume the most battery are ones which run in the background, use location mapping and obviously, the most used ones. The apps that run in the background drain the most energy because they also function automatically. So if you have such apps on your phone, better delete them. In case you don’t want to delete them, you can minimize the battery utilization by turning off background refresh. To do this, hit Settings — General — Background App Refresh. But one thing you must keep in mind before using this feature is that the iOS 8 will take a few days before displaying precise statistics.
