    I think battery life on my new iPhone 6S is horrible so I am trying to find out what's using all that battery.

    Today I was very surprised to see the new YouTube app at the top of the battery shaming list... Not because I haven't used it to watch videos but to see in the last 24 hours it has been draining battery doing something in the background for 3 hours and 20 minutes??

    We all know that if you watch video on YouTube and you put iPhone to sleep or just press home button to go out of the app - the video stop playing immediately.

    So what is YouTube doing in the background?

    Google used to make good iOS apps. Now they are complete trash.
    You'll notice that Youtube has a 1-star review in the app store, so you're probably not the only one having this issue.
    I woulnd't be surprised if they're pulling the same garbage as Facebook and using exploits to keep the app running against Apple's rules.

    Best option is the same thing I do with facebook: force close it whenever you're not using it.

    Facebook has admitted a problem with background activity using too much battery and, according to them, are working on it. They also have a bridge to sell. LOL

    I've stopped using the YouTube app and just use the browser. I save YouTube page to the home screen and it launches just like the app.
