Closing Background Apple will not help in saving Battery of iPhone
Battery is one of the biggest problems for the iPhone users and they try their level best to do things which can boost the battery life of their device. Some try to close the data ad location (switch it on according to need) to get the best performance of the Battery on their iPhone and some constantly close all the apps running in the background.

So if you are also closing all the apps which are running in the background to save the battery of your iPhone, then you should change the mindset right away. According to one of the senior executive of Apple, closing the background app on iPhone doesn’t save battery.

A reader of Blog 9to5 Mac apparently sent an email to Apple CEO Tim Cook, asking if he shuts down the background apps then whether it helps in extending the battery life?

The Mail wended its way to Craig Federighi, Apple Senior Vice president Software engineering, who simply replied with “No” for the question.

9to5 Mac, confirms that header of the mail was verified as legitimate.

Apple introduced the multitasking, or running multiple app in iOS4, where you can jump from one app to another by double tapping on the home button.

Apple Support page have the similar answer what Craig Federighi has said, page says “Generally, there's no need to force an app to close unless it's unresponsive. When you press the Home button two times quickly, the recently used apps that appear aren't open. They're in an efficient standby mode to help you navigate and multitask.”

Another support document goes deeper and says “After you switch to a different app, some apps run for a short period of time before they're set to a suspended state. Apps that are in a suspended state aren't actively in use, open or taking up system resources. With Background App Refresh, suspended apps can check for updates and new content.
