The iphone has a special sepearate processor just for that function so don't worry it's not burning your battery.

The M7 is the same processor that determines things like the phone's orientation (to switch portrait/landscape modes), parallax and shake-to-undo, so shutting it down (if that were even possible) would disable a lot of things.

Also, apparently it's so low-power that iPhones can even keep track of motion after the battery has died.
