If you're bothered by how often you have to charge your iPhone, the answer may lie within your phone's Facebook app, according to Tech Insider .

Even if you've manually closed the app, it's probably still pulling power from your battery, the story said. Deleting the app is the only way to stop the drain, Tech Insider said.

According to Tech Crunch , Facebook is aware of the issue and working on a solution. A spokesperson for Facebook said they've been alerted to battery drain problems connected to their iOS app, the story said.

Several tech bloggers have been writing about the battery drain recently, noting the Facebook app still runs in the background even when users have changed their settings to prevent it, according to both stories.

One blogger said the app drained 15 percent battery power in his iPhone in a seven-day period, even though the phone's background refresher app was disabled, Tech Crunch said.
