Facebook for iOS Draining your Battery?

Have you noticed your iPhone battery draining whilst on Facebook? Well then you are not alone. 

Facebook were well aware of this issue and have fixed it. The new Facebook for iOS app resolves this issue. 

The reason why your phone battery has been draining more than usual after using Facebook is due to video and audio on the social media app. You may have noticed that Facebook now automatically plays video for you (something which some of us at Phonefinder find a little annoying and have disabled). Well Apple iOS Facebook (not Android) seems to manage the audio poorly which leads to unnecessary battery drain. What's happening is that even after you leave Facebook on an Apple device the audio session will actually continue to be switched on (as if you were listening to it on silent). This glitch has been fixed and your battery will be fine after updating the new Facebook for iOS app.
