    Default Iphone 6s battery bleed

    I seem to be having an issue the last few days of the battery bleeding MUCH faster that it has before. I don't use the phone more than I did before. but I went from 97% to 33% charge in 2.5 hours. Anybody got any ideas? I was on a combination of Wifi and LTE while I was using the phone

    Have you installed any new apps? That's a big difference. Has anything changed like (the coverage of the area you are in)?

    That's very odd. I would suggest getting it checked out if you have had it for a short time. From Feb to now is almost 6 months and I don't think that's enough time for a battery to go south that fast.

    I asked about the apps because Facebook is a known battery leech.

    Yeah about the same here. I use a battery case though so it doesn't bother me much.

    I've been having a bleed issue too lately. Within 4 hours it was dead and it's taking FOREVER to charge!!!! I got mine less than 9months ago.

    I've noticed from my friends complaints that if you watch a lot of videos from FB app, it drains battery quick!

    Default Iphone 6s battery bleed

    The 3 big battery users are screen brightness, push notifications, and location services. Turn your screen brightness down as much as possible. Turn off any push notifications you don't absolutely have to have. They really do use a lot of battery. Also, turn off location services for anything not neccessary. Especially for Facebook.
    Videos and intense gaming come in 4th.
    I have a couple of apps I use a lot that seem to use a lot of battery on the iOS 10 beta. I'll wait until they update after 10 is released in a couple weeks to make a judgement.

    You should have "never autoplay videos" checked in the Facebook Settings. They will kill your battery.

    This is a sample of how my battery acts. Charging from 19 to 40 in 20 minutes doesn't seem like that should be normal, but that's me

    A fast charger can accomplish 1% per minute. Also have you downloaded a updated os? That may have something to do with battery life.
