Recently we told you how to conserve tablet battery life by modifying the background behavior of mobile apps. Well, the new Background App Refresh in iOS 7 is useful, but it also might drain your battery a little faster. The feature allows apps to refresh their content in the background via a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. Although most iPhone and iPad users will welcome this upgrade, battery misers might prefer to disable it by going to Settings/General/Background App Refresh and flipping the main switch to Off. Alternatively, you can turn off Background App Refresh for apps you use infrequently.

The advantage of a facetime audio only connection is that you can talk to someone that is out of your calling area if you are on Wifi or data.  Think of it like built in Skype.  We use this all the time as one of our offices is in EU and we are in the USA.  Its a free connection.

Too bad, so sad.

One article gets a read; seven pieces of listicle in a slide show? Not so much.

Isn't a FaceTime audio call just a phone call? LOL
