    Very useful, BUT have i been charging too much because when i get up in the morning, sometimes i have very little battery left. Are apps on in the background? Any other suggestions? Thanks

    Estelle: Charging too much? When you get up in the morning, the battery should be full. Are you not plugging it in at night?

    How do I know which apps are running in the background at any time and how to I close them? Occasionally all open apps will appear on my screen and I can sweep up and close them but I don’t know how to get to see which apps are open.

    Dianne: Unless you have never launched the app since restarting, or have force-quit the app, it is "running." But background apps shouldn't take up much power at all, unless they are supposed to. Like an app tracking your bike ride should be running and using power while it is tracking. Pull up on the bottom of the screen to get to the app switcher. But don't force-quit an app unless you are having trouble.

    I see that yes, I am using the messages and phone most often, but is there anyway to lesson how much battery any particular app takes?

    I thank Leo for suggesting your newsletter, and for you to put such ways to help non-techies to figure things out!

    Sherrie: Not really. If you need to use an app, and it makes your day more productive or better in some way, then use the app. But this is useful for troubleshooting problems, or maybe using an app less that you don't really need to use, like a something that just passes the time.
