How to stop Snapchat draining your iPhone battery

Snapchat is a nightmare when it comes to battery life. So if you're wondering how do you stop Snapchat from draining your battery life? Here are some ways to stop Snapchat zapping your phone battery.


Don't have it on in the background

Snapchat is proven to be poorly power-managed - Apple's built-in battery shaming list shows us this.

When you look at the list, screen time is fine, because that shows how much you're actively using an app. If background is higher than screen, though, it means the app is still churning away, draining your charge, even when you're not using it. And that's bad.

Activate travel mode

There are a few things you can try to reduce background activity in Snapchat. You can put Snapchat itself into Travel Mode, which it says "reduces Snapchat's mobile data usage". Since radio is one of the principle points of power consumption, it can help.

  1. Launch Snapchat from your Home screen.
  2. Tap on the Snapchat button (looks like a ghost) at the top center, or touch the screen and pull down, to go to your account screen.
  3. Tap the Settings button (looks like a gear) at the top right.
  4. Tap on Manage Preferences under Additional Services.
  5. Switch Travel Mode to On.

Close it down properly

If neither constant travel mode or turning off background refresh are enough from you, and if your phone is draining to the point where it's getting hot, there's one more thing you can do — force quit it.

  1. Double click the Home button (or 3D Touch press the left side of the screen on iPhone 6s) to bring up the fast app switcher.
  2. Swipe to the app you want to force quit.
  3. Touch the app card and flick it up and off the screen
