    Ever since I upgraded to IOS 10 I have had problems with Siri draining my battery. I have an iPhone 7 with the latest update of 10.1.
    I rarely use Siri. I rarely use my phone. I have my battery usage show "Last 24 Hours". Siri Audio has gone from 18% to 62%, which the battery usage is showing now, since around 2:00 pm this afternoon to now which is 10:00pm. I have not used my phone at all during this time. My battery is down to under 40%.

    Try turning Siri off.

    Is "Hey Siri" activated?
    That drains battery since it has to constantly listen.

    It shouldn't affect battery life that much though. I have Hey Siri enabled and use Siri at least a few times a day, yet Siri is sitting only at 1% of my total battery usage.

    OP, I recommend resetting your iPhone and monitoring your usage for another 24 hours. If Siri is still misbehaving an iTunes restore might be in order.

    Thanks for the info! I'm not using 'Hey Siri' so I thought of what would be logical haha!
