Since the release of iOS7 people are complaining about the battery drain problem. iOS7 consumes more battery in Dynamic Wallpapers & Background Application Refresh and Update.  Things to do/remember are below.



  • Use static wallpaper – Go to Settings -> Wallpapers & Brightness -> Choose Wallpaper and select a static wallpaper
  • Turn off Background Application Refresh – Go to Settings ->General-> Background App Refresh and turn it off.
  • Turn off Wifi if you are on Mobile data connection, it will further save battery life by not searching for Wifi networks.
  • Do not leave an application open if it uses GPS (location services)

How to find Spotlight search to search apps & contents on iOS7?

  1. From any Home screen page of your iOS device, drag your finger down anywhere on the Home screen (do not drag from the top of the screen as it will open notification centre).
  2. Spotlight search will appear and you can search for apps, texts, or any other content you’d like just as you did on previous versions of iOS.
  3. To include exclude applications in spotlight search go to Settings -> General -> Spotlight Search.
