Apple just busted one of the biggest myths about the iPhone. According to Business Insider,

The company says that closing open, unused apps on your device won’t make its battery life last longer. Craig Federighi, the head of software development at Apple, replied “No and No” with a smiley face emoji after a fan emailed Apple CEO Tim Cook asking, “Do you quit your iOS multitasking apps frequently and is this necessary for battery life?” The myth that closing unused apps can save battery life has been long-running and widely believed– it’s even been suggested by reputable publications as a battery-saving tip. Earlier this month former Apple technician and MartianCraft CEO Kyle Richter wrote a detailed piece explained that closing unused apps can actually take up more battery life than simply leaving them open. If it’s an app you used frequently, force quitting it constantly and re-opening it will use more battery life than just letting it run in the background.

And I’m one of those one who will close out the app every time because I thought that not having them running in the background would save battery power.  Oh well.
