Location services are really an integral part of a most of iOS apps such as iMessage, Facebook, WhatsApp, using the internal GPS system to add photos to a map, check in on Facebook, or let your friends know where you are with Facebook Places.If your battery is dying, however, the location services are the first thing you should turn off, as they use a lot of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch’s power needs, what with their background data sending and receiving and such. So If you’d like your battery to last a little longer, less here is the guide on how to turn off location services on iPhone.
Here’s how to turn off location services on iPhone
Open your Settings app to launch it, and then navigate to Privacy. You’ll be able to turn the toggles OFF for any specific app that has permissions to access your GPS location by scrolling through the list and tapping them all to turn off. It is preferred on a fairly regular basis for both privacy and battery savings. We figured out that fewer apps accessing the location, the less battery power in total are being used for that function.
If you want to turn off Location Services completely and not get monitored by any Apps , then simply tap the main toggle at the top to OFF, and you’ll stop using them. This will keep your apps that need it, like Maps or Compass, from knowing where you are, but the battery will be preserved.
