Probably a dumb question, but when they issue the fix to keep WiFi connected even if the screen is locked, would that help improve battery life? I work in a building that at best has one bar on the edge network. In this case my phone's battery will go about 10 hours. When I leave work and have a good LTE signal I get closer to 16. So if the WiFi connection is always on getting Email and other App updates, battery life should be stronger. Right?

They just have to change the code and insert a few lines

Once MSFT makes the change to allow Wifi to stay connected when the screen is locked, many users will discover decreased battery consumption and reduced cellular data. Their apps will update in the background via lower powered Wifi radio instead of burning battery and data allotment over the cell.
