7 brings a fresh new look along with a ton of new features to Apple’s famous range of mobile devices. In this post, we’ll guide you through a bunch of options in iOS 7 that you can turn off if you don’t need them in order to save battery on your iPhone, or iPod touch.
Location Services in iOS 7, or any iteration of iOS for that matter, is a real battery hog. If your main apps don’t make use of this feature, you can turn it off. Head over to Settings > General > Privacy and turn off Location Services altogether, or set individual setting for each app.
Also, under the Location Services pane, scroll down to System Services and turn off Diagnostics & Usage, Location-Based iAds, Popular Near Me, Setting Time Zone, Traffic and Frequent Locations.
Siri is a core part of iOS and runs in the background all the time. If you’re not using it then it’s best to turn it off. Head over to Settings > General > Siri and turn it off.
