    Default Safari draining battery on 8.1

    With ios 8.1 I've noticed that using safari substantially drains the battery quicker than usual. I have yet to fully test it out but has anyone experienced this as well?

    I use Safari a lot and have not noticed any significant additional battery drain.

    I don't see how Safari would drain a battery any more than other app that goes online. Such as Facebook or Twitter. I had a battery drain issue after 8.1. I found where several new widget apps were using background app refresh. Turned those off. I then Reset Network Settings. Also turned a few apps off in location services. They were new. My battery seems to be OK now. Well, for a 14 month old iP 5.

    If you are using websites with webGL then yes your battery will drain faster. If not then it shouldn't be draining fast.
