    Default Why does my iphone 5s drain when standby

    Hi, I currently have an iphone 5s and every night I experience 50%-60% battery drain every 6hours. Just now, I got 30mins of usage and 8hours and 33mins of standby, and to my surprised I got pissed and tried to solve this issue again.

    I do appreciate your suggestions and stuff, but please read what I've done.

    Tried to downgrade from 9.3.3 to 9.3.2
    Reset and backup
    Downgrade to 9.3.2 and set as new iphone.
    Downgrade to 9.3.2 and restore
    Removed all background app refresh
    Tried to airplane mode when sleeping
    Just recently replaced battery
    Followed every advice in the internet.

    All these FAILED.

    This battery drain is not usual. It just pisses me off to see me struggle everyday.

    Thank you I hope I get help. Please and thank you. If replacing the phone would be the best solution, I doubt I can afford. Thank you guys.

    This is indeed very strange.

    At seeing the title I was gonna suggest Battery replacement, then disabling background apps and as last I was gonna blame your carrier coverage.
    But none of these are the solution.

    Only thing I can come up with now is to ask if you put your phone in DFU mode while restoring with iTunes?

    I already reset my phone to default everything and still nothing. I don't know what to do now. My phone is essential to my school and it frustrates me to charge every 5 hours or less.

    What does Settings\Battery\Battery Usage say?

    I Second this, when screenshot s done, try to have the backroad app info shown. Some apps can have rouge processes. I know you said you set the phone up as new but the very first thing everyone does usually is reinstall all of the apps you use. It can be one of those apps which a new update could have adversely effected its performance.

    Third this! lol

    Check the battery settings, find out what is going on and nuke the app for now. or wipe the device. I am pretty sure if I removed Facebook app I would gain 20-30 percent back.

    Apple quit replacing iPhone 5S batteries in January of this year because the time between charges gets shorter & shorter the older the battery. Probably you need a new battery.

    How did you update to 9.1? It isn't being signed anymore.

    I think he meant 9.1 to the new OS.
