How To Disable Ping On iPhone / iPod Touch Running On iOS 4.3 / 4.3.1 In Order To Save Battery

After upgrading to iOS 4.3, many iPhone and iPod Touch users have reported that their battery life is worse than before. A quick investigation of some developers has revealed that the Ping feature is causing this issue because it’s turned “On” by default therefore it’s draining the battery like crazy.

Below you can find a guide on how to disable the Ping feature on iPhones and iPods running iOS 4.3 / 4.3.1 in order to preserve battery. It’s a relatively easy process so proceed with confidence and caution at the same time.

How To Disable Ping Feature On iPhone and iPod Touch Running On iOS 4.3 / 4.3.1 In Order To Save Battery:
  1. Go to Settings;

  2. Now go to General;

  3. Now go to Restrictions;

  4. Enter your Passcode (you will need to enter a Passcode twice if you’re entering in Restrictions for the first time);

  5. All Restrictions are listed as “Allow” – to enable them, hit “Enable Restrictions”;

  6. Now that the Restrictions are enabled, find “Ping” in the list and set it to “Off”;

To check if Ping has been disabled, you will need to go to your iPhone / iPod Touch homescreen to see if the Ping app is still there. If it’s there, then you’re doing it wrong (we learned these words from Apple who revolutionized the way we’re holding a phone).
