Facebook app draining iPhone’s battery?

A new report has claimed that Facebook’s mobile apps could be partly to blame for an increase in complaints about battery draining of iPhones.

The Unofficial Apple Weblog report that Sebastian Duvel, a German application developer, has carried out a research and come to the conclusion that Facebook’s services are not “not power-efficient”.

The developer used Apple’s Instruments OS X application to determine what apps were using the most battery power, and discovered that Facebook’s main app, as well as it’s standalone Messenger app, were two of the biggest battery-drainers.

It appears that the applications come out of sleep mode every 10 seconds, behaviour which Duvel claims is caused by a bug in the app’s programming.

When battery drain in iPhones and iPads were first reported by users, it was initially put down to a code change by Apple themselves, but this new report suggests there may be other reasons. Duvel was also quick to state that his research was not done to embarrass Facebook, but purely to highlight the issue.

  1. Same on Android. On my phone you can see what’s taking the battery power and besides the screen itself, Facebook is the biggest drain on power.
