Apple iOS 9 bugs forcing users to turn their head toward Google Android

Facebook apologises for iPhone battery drain issues, releases partial fix.

Facebook has apologised for bugs in its app which ate up users’ iPhone battery power even when they weren’t actively using the app, and has released what appears to be a partial fix in an update.

Last week, several stories circulated about users’ Facebook apps were clocking up absurd amounts of “background activity” relative to how much screen time they actually spent with the app, with many theories floating around as to why. This background activity is the kind of thing that, say, a radio streaming app would register while you’re listening to audio, but not spending active screen time in the app.

The second issue he pinpointed was “CPU spin” in the app’s network code – which works kind of like a never-ending feedback loop so the app is never really sleeping. “A CPU spin is like a child in a car asking, ‘Are we there yet? The network’s engineering manager Ari Grant announced a few “key issues” had been found, including a “CPU spin” in Facebook’s network code and problems with how it manages audio sessions. Facebook came under scrutiny for similar reasons in April last year, when a former Apple expert discovered the Facebook app was continually requesting resources, hogging battery power as a result. • Set your phone to low power mode.

This Apple iOS 9 feature will temporarily reduce power consumption by either reducing or turning off a bunch of non-crucial features, like Siri and automatic downloads.
