Now that iOS 7 has been released there are several settings "tweaks" we suggest you make to ensure your privacy is in place and your battery has maximum efficiency. Start by adjusting privacy settings on your iPhone or iPad.
Apple hides its System Services settings at the bottom of the Privacy > Location Services panel. Below the applications list on the bottom of the list is the System Services setting and the explanation of what the purple arrow icons means. When they appear in the top right of your menu bar, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services to see which apps are using your location data.
Then touch System Services to reveal the most important privacy settings on your iPhone or iPad. Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Diagnostics & Usage. The Diagnostics & Usage setting monitors everything you do on your iPhone and "anonymously" sends it to Apple for "improving iOS." If that option is on you're giving Apple permission to monitor and record everything you do on your device although anonymously.
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations. Frequent Locations is equally troublesome too. This captures about your "frequent locations".
Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Location-Based iAds. iAds allows your location information to be used to allow a brand – and their "partners and licensees" – to "collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device." Turn this off and be happy with "less relevant" ads.
Lastly, turn on Settings > Safari > Do Not Track. Apple's supports the Do Not Track standard. Event though it is dated technology turn it on as the some servers still utilize it.
Some users are finding that updating to iOS 7 seems to have reduced the battery life. Battery issues are easier to identify in iOS 7 because they generally relate to new features bin iOS 7. Here are some adjustments that should help.
Other tricks include disabling Bluetooth, don’t allow Push, use Fetch for Mail instead of Push, and reset to factory defaults and restore from backup.
