Is your iPhone iO7 update driving you cRaZy?? Mine sure is!
Here are some tips to help you save battery life and sanity!
Number 1: battery saving tips:
Number 2: touch down with AirDrop (Not Gonna Lie... I have no clue what this means! Please comment if you do)
Number 3: Close your Apps! press your round home button twice, then slide the apps straight up the screen to close them
Number 4: Seriously, control your apps, turn off auto updates: Settings>iTunes & App Store and turn off the Updates and Apps settings. Alternatively, scroll down the page and switch off the Use Cellular Data setting: now your apps will only update when you have a WiFi connection.
Number 5: Reduce Motion: Go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Reduce Motion and set this setting to On. Doing so prevents the motion in the user interface, including the parallax effect.
Number 6: Static wallpaper: turn it off: iOS 7 lets you use animated wallpapers. These are nice and pretty when you have enough battery in there, but switching to a static wallpaper will slightly reduce battery drain. You'll achieve this following these steps: Settings>Wallpaper & Brightness > Wallpaper > choose a static wallpaper for your phone.
Number 7: Lose Location Turn Off: Settings>Privacy>Location Services. This gives you the choice of disabling Location Services on a per-app basis, or of switching this feature off altogether.

Ok, one more tip that has nothing to do with saving power. Since I updated my phone, I am having a hard time seeing the text messages with the green background and white letters. If you bold the text, this will really help! Settings>General>Accessibility>Bold Text
Please post any other iPhone or Smartphone tips you have that may help others. THANKS!
