Solution #3: Turn off Background App Refresh/Disable Location Services

Even if you close any app, it continues to refresh in the background to ensure it remains live and kicking all the time. Turning off background app can help you fix this problem.

Open Settings app on your device → General → Background App Refresh and turn off the switch.
