    I have location services running if the app is open like (snapchat, iMessage, weather) but no location services running all the time. Also, background app refresh is turned off. I also don't close out of my applications that run in the background. Apparently closing them out hurts battery life more... Hope this helps

    That's really helpful. How about Location Services > System Services?

    By the way, are you on ios 9.1.3?

    sorry posting again as the first one was not clear. Is the battery performance standard as per your usage. I am not sure as I am a first time iPhone user.
    How is your battery life lately? We are from the same telco

    Does disabling background app refresh improve battery life significantly?

    Seemed to have found a good article explaining everything in the location services section and what is recommend to leave on and what should be turned off. http://www.idownloadblog.com/2016/01...tion-services/

    I've switched mine and will test results today. I've been lucky to make it all day on a battery lately.

    Folks I've noticed in the last couple of days that my iPhone 6s Plus has been loosing battery charge faster with the screen on and keeping charge very well when screen locked.
    I am now getting about 8 hours usage time and 32 hours standby time.

    Has anyone else also observed this on their devices ?

    How old is your 6s Plus? I'm a very heavy user. I got my 6s Plus on September 25th. I normally run my phone from 5 am until midnight. I was getting 11 to 12 hours usage in October. Now it's down to 8 to 9 hours or so. I'll barely make it to my next upgrade. LOL
    But I don't worry about battery. Keep in mind the 3 biggest battery eaters are screen brightness, push notifications, and location services. Some specific things would include videos, streaming, and intensive games.

    I've had it since October 2015 and yes I suspect it's either the screen brightness or my mobile network coverage. Though both those variables ideally shouldn't have changed over time since I've had the phone last year.

    That leads me to think is it some rogue app. This is my usage pattern in the last few hours since full charge

    I'm absolutely loving it! Much better than my first child, the Note 5. I use my iphone 6s Plus (personal phone) for all my surfing, and the note 5 (work line) for all my work related stuff.

    Low power mode is ok, but I have trouble dealing with only a 30 second autolock. I need at least 1 minute. I quit worrying about battery a long time ago. It'll last me fine until I upgrade next year.

    Battery life on my 6S Plus took somewhat of a nosedive after iOS 9.3.1. On average I'd say I lost about 30mins to an hour from my usual 9-10hrs of usage and 2days of standby. I used to charge it every 2-3days where it'll reach about 10% (on a single charge of course) now I have to charge it every other day. No change in usage habits, iOS 9.3.1 has had a negative impact on battery life for me.

    No. I just got the 6S Plus about 4 months ago and it's great. Also, I'm always going to opt for the Plus versions of iPhones from here on out, because of superior battery life, and I've come to really enjoy the larger screen.

    I briefly flipped from the iPhone 6 to the Note 5, but came running back home to the 6S+. Battery life used to suck (probably because I was on it all day long) but now that I'm working again, this is what it looks like. Off the plug @6:30 am, and on LP mode. Clearly I cannot use the phone while I'm on the clock LOL

    What say ye, good or bad?
