The apps in the column are just the apps that are still running. You are NOT uninstalling the apps. You are simply stopping the apps from continuing to run after you have left the app.

I REPEAT. . . YOU ARE NOT DELETING THE APP ! 😮 You are just saving valuable battery life. Just wait 😊

Then come back to your Home Screen & go to your Settings.

Turn of Bluetooth & Wifi.  You can use them when needed but when not being used, turn them off so they don't use all of the battery. Trust me, it makes a difference

Then go to the Brightness setting. Turn it all the way off or adjust it to a very low brightness. If you plan on being outside & it's sunny. It will be harder to see, so turn it up slightly.

Then go to Sounds. Turn both Vibrate On Ring & Vibrate On Silent OFF.  I keep mine on because eventually the ring annoys me. But Vibrate does use up some of the battery.

& Those are some tips to help improve your phone's battery life. Also make sure you use up your iPhone's battery until it dies & then charge. It helps regulate the battery. Trust me 👌Do once a month.

You can also turn of your 3G/4G. I don't do that cause I use it but when you want to save your last bit of battery for an important phone call it helps. Also turn Data Push off.

As well as turning of the Equalizer in the Music Settings. If you don't know where to find it some of them. Comment below 😁 I'll gladly help. I help with Troubleshooting as well. Hope this helped !
