I was talking wtth a friend of mine who fixes computers, I told what's going he said to remove my apps. He was trying to guide me through and then I told him what you said he said OK. It makes me wonder though, can having too many downloaded apps wear down the battery?

Apps do use battery. But generally it would be apps you are using. Some will do background updates like email, but that should have little effect on your battery.

Settings->Battery will show you which app is using the most battery. It will most likely be something you use.

Generally removing apps will not help you for the non-problem that you are concerned about.

Nope. It just means you spend a lot of time on Facebook.

I have noticed something when the battery does get down below 40 %' it seems to skip 20 percentages no matter what I'm doing. Why do you suppose it does that? It's as if the lower the percentage goes, the more rapidly the battery drains. That was exactly the problem with my Sansung. Is this normal for portable devices?

No it is not normal, but it is an issue reported by many since the release of IOS 10.

I did not say that iOS 10 is damaging the battery, just losing the 30%. There is nothing to do about it but wait for a fix,

I know you didn't say it, but I just thought there was something damaging the battery. I was just more concerned about the battery than anything. But if it is the IOS 10 then that's ok. I kept seeing that mentioned what exactly is IOS 10?

iOS 10 is the operating system inside of modern iPads and iPhones. Currently on version 10. It is what allows you so interact with the device and run apps. It also protects you from bad apps, bad stores, and some bad websites.
