But according to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering, it doesn’t make any difference.

Although he was a little light on details, he was fairly upfront in his opinion on the matter.

Federighi provided a response to an email sent by a reader of influential Apple website 9to5Mac to Apple Ceo Tim Cook inquiring whether he quits his multi-tasking apps as a method of preserving battery life.

Cook didn’t respond, but Federighi did (the e-mail below has been verified by 9to5Mac) with a blunt but unambiguous response.
