Tweak 3 :Notifications
When you install an App you are asked a question about “push notifications” which you probably tap OK for to get the message off the screen. Once the App is installed you probably never think about the notification again. However, you need to be careful about this question as you are authorizing the App to run in the background using up valuable battery power.
In some cases you may want to have the App running in order to be notified of something important – such as receiving a text message or a social media update. You need to be aware that the cost of getting instant notifications is paid for in battery juice.
It makes sense to think about which Apps you want to be able to notify you of specific important events.
How To Limit Notifications
1. Tap Settings
2. Scroll down to Notifications and tap
You’ll see a list of all your apps. Underneath the name of each app, you’ll see either Off or the kind of notifications that app is allowed to send you, which are Badges, Sounds, or Banners. Ignore the apps that say Off and take a look through the others.
As you go down the list, ask yourself “Do I want to receive alerts from this app when it’s not open?” If the answer is yes, leave everything as it is. If the answer is no, it’s a good idea to turn off notifications for that app.
3. To turn off notifications, tap the name of the app and tap the switch next to Allow Notifications.
4. Tap the switch to turn off Notifications
5. Notifications are now turned off for that App
6. Return to the Notification and repeat this for each App
