Facebook Won’t Drain Your iPhone Battery Anymore.

“We recently heard reports of some people experiencing battery issues with the Facebook iOS app and have been looking into the causes of these problems,” Facebook engineering manager Ari Grant said in a post on Facebook Thursday. “We found a few key issues and have identified additional improvements, some of which are in the version of the app that was released today.” Grant cited two reasons the Facebook app was causing unusual battery drain on iPhones.

The first update, available today, solves a “CPU spin” issue that Facebook found in its network code. “A CPU spin is like a child in a car asking, ‘Are we there yet?PEOPLE FARM FACILITY FACEBOOK has admitted that part of its software drains Apple smartphones batteries, but not to a soul-sucking sideline that parts people from the real world.

It would be unfair to expect Facebook to apologise for being a popular service, although it probably does have some questions to answer, particularly in Ireland. According to a post from the Facebook research team, “e-laughing is evolving” and the social network has been analyzing the data we use in its platform since the end of May. (Definitely hit the link for the deep dive; it’s a fascinating study.) To likely no one’s surprise, the most common expression of e-laughing is “haha” followed by emoji. Facebook goes deeper yet into the nuances of who uses what sort of online laugh: Age, gender and geographic location play a role in laughter type and length: young people and women prefer emoji, whereas men prefer longer hehes. If you leave the application after watching a video, the audio session sometimes stays open, “as if the app was playing audio silently,” Grant wrote. “This is similar to when you close a music app and want to keep listening to the music while you do other things, except in this case it was unintentional and nothing kept playing,” the post said. Why this matters: Facebook is the most popular mobile app in America, and the current 2nd-ranked free app in the App Store (behind only Facebook Messenger), so any battery drain issues could be affecting tens of millions of users.

Comparatively, Apple’s Safari browser accounted for 12 percent of Galligan’s usage over the week, followed by Messages and the Home and Lock Screen, each of which took up 6 percent. “We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused,” Grant said. “We are committed to continuing to improve the battery usage of our app and you should see improvements” in the updated version. Are we there yet?’ and the question not resulting in any progress to reaching the destination. “This repeated processing causes our app to use more battery than intended. Facebook ushers those people in the direction of their settings. “With over 1.5 billion searches per day and over two trillion posts in our index, search is an important, long-term effort at Facebook. The team’s goal with Search FYI is to share our progress more frequently,” said Tom Stocky, VP of search at the firm. “When something happens in the world, people often turn to Facebook to see how their friends and family are reacting.
