These days, smartphones come with so many pre-installed apps. Many of which, you will never even open. While you can't uninstall all of these apps, Samsung is making it easier to disable them and help conserve your battery life. And today, we're going to show you how to enable this feature so you can automatically disable any apps that haven't been used in the past 30 days.
How To Auto Disable Unused Apps
First off, you're going to want to jump into Settings. You can do this by pulling down the notification shade and tapping on the gear icon, or by going into the app drawer and tapping on the Settings icon.
Next, scroll down to Device Care and tap on that.
Then tap on Battery, which should be the first icon at the bottom of the screen.
Now you're going to tap on the overflow menu in the upper-right hand corner, and then tap on Settings.
Under the "App Power Management" section, look for the "Auto Disable Unused Apps", it'll be second to last in that section.
With that toggled on, it will automatically disable any apps that you have not used in the past 30 days. It's a pretty straight forward feature.
It's worth mentioning that this only disables those apps. Basically keeps them closed, but they are still on your device. So if you haven't opened Facebook for 30 days, it'll still be on your Galaxy S10, it just won't be running in the background and draining your battery.
This is one of those features that everyone needs to use, even though it is buried in the battery settings on every Samsung smartphone running on One UI. Why? Because it's going to help you get even more out of your battery on that smartphone. Imagine not having all of these extra apps that you use infrequently, not running in the background on your smartphone. It's really going to give your battery life a nice boost.
Of course, this is not going to disable services that Samsung has running on its smartphones, as those services are needed for some of its apps that you are going to be using. So it's not a resolution for disabling bloatware, unfortunately, but it should do wonders for speeding up your phone and increasing its battery life, which is always a good thing.
There are plenty of other great battery management options in that section as well. So if you are looking to increase the battery life on your Galaxy S10 (or any other Samsung phone that is running on One UI), don't be afraid to go through that section and change the settings to your liking. Because the last thing that anyone is going to want to do, is to turn on one of the battery saver options to get better battery life. As that will slow down your phone and limit notifications from coming through. And at that point, what's the point of having a smartphone that you spent nearly a grand on?
