A TIKTOK star has revealed how Android users can extend their phone’s battery life.
It’s so easy to do – and can help you avoid a smartphone charging crisis.
TikTok user at last revealed the top tip which he says can be used on any Android phone.
The TikToker explained, “There is an option on every Android that will greatly improve battery life and stop background app refreshes.”
The tech expert then films himself demonstrating how to turn off background app refresh for all your relevant apps.
You need to go to settings on your phone and then click on “Apps & notifications”.
The TikToker continued, “Then we need to go to our installed apps.”
He clicks on “App Info” and all the apps he has on his Android device will be displayed.
The TikToker says: “Now you have to do this with every app that you use very frequently.
“So I use Canva almost every day, so I go to Canva and hit Advanced and then there’s an option called Battery.”
He points out the caveat that should appear on your screen, which explains that apps can use your battery in the background.
This means that an app can drain your battery even if you don’t use it.
To prevent this, click Background Restriction, then click Restrict.
You must follow these steps for all apps that you use frequently.
The TikToker claims that you should see a “significant improvement” in your phone’s battery life.
Many people praised the trick in the TikTok comments section, but some claimed it doesn’t work on their specific Android device.
