    Started out at 100% at 7 am. It’s now 1 pm. Already at 48%. My battery life is at 85% so not critically bad yet. Could there be something running in background draining it.

    You should have la look under battery in the settings app.

    There is a list of apps and how much battery each is consuming.

    Also are you using Spotify or have a gmail account in the mail app?

    More than likely you have a rogue app that’s draining the battery. With that being said, reboot your device and then monitor the battery settings to see what app is using the most battery.

    Did the top app in the battery settings show the battery usage for it? If so, was it a lot?

    Depending on the app, that’s high usage, in my opinion.

    In addition, check the locations setting to see what apps might be using your location constantly that shouldn’t.

    I have fewer weather apps after reading this! I looked and found that one of them was at the top of my battery usage list… at 45%! I deleted it as fast as I could!

    Oh that drains it to? I usually put it to only while using. It seems gps use kills it faster to.

    32% may indicate excessive battery use. But if you use that app a lot during the 24 hours, then it may be more because you use it a lot. What to look for is if usage is high, but you don't use it much.

    What’s the problem with gmail account in the iPhone mail app?
    Google refuses to offer push for gmail on the iPhone mail app, they only offer fetch, and that will have an impact on the battery.

    It you tap on “show activity” you should get a better idea of what is happening.

    You could try limiting background app refresh under general, in the settings app and see if that makes a difference.

    Best of luck op.

    You could also try deleting and reinstalling the app as a last resort, but I don’t have any Facebook apps installed. Good luck op

    It does not count the time the phone was not doing anything, like when you sleep.

    Tap on any of those bars in Activity and it’ll show the usage for the selected hour, it’s helped me figure out some battery offenders.

    It’s also worth noting that it looks like almost all the screen usage is occurring outside the period when it’s charging, which sounds like an obvious statement, but it looks to me there’s something odd going on.
