    How do I check my battery usage history?

    I want to check usage stats from yesterday and compare them to today's. Yesterday I had approx. 37 or 38% before I finally put my phone on the charger; approx. 14 or 15 hours of usage off the charger. Which is not to shabby. That is generally within my normal range.


    Today I''m at 62% and it's been about 15 hours without it being charged. I don't think I did anything different and I am curious.

    I got the 9.2.1 update yesterday afternoon/evening and I wanted to compare data from 9.2 and 9.2.1. It seems that some of those fixes included tweaking the OS to get better battery life.
    iOS won't display a day-by-day comparison. It'll show you the last 24hrs and 7days.

    Thanks. Is there an app for that? Lol

    Just get a screenshot of your stats each day at the same time.

    How is the 6s+ battery life so far?-imoreappimg_20160126_222438.jpg
    Quite pleased with mine these last few days. Single-charge, never plugged in during that timespan.

    Most used apps: Overcast, Safari, Tweetbot 3 and Instagram.

    I've had 2 6S Plus iPhones and one definitely had better battery life than the other but both get me through a day just fine. The first one I'd have 50%+ at the end of a day this one about 40%. I won't get into the chip makers on each.

    Coming from a Note 4, battery life is amazing. My note died every day around 3. My 6s+ still has 20% when I go to bed.

    Battery life is great. Hands down the best I have ever experienced with any iPhone.

    This is the best battery life I have ever gotten on my 128GB 6S+. About three of those hours were listening to music in my car because I forgot my iPod Classic at home.

    How old is this phone? You obviously don't use it much daily. I got my 6s Plus September 25th and have used it almost non stop from 5:30 am to midnight every day since. So I'm down to between 8 to 10 hours usage per charge. I'm a heavy user with all I do too.

    I bought it in December along with a 6S. I also use a Note 5 and a Note Edge.

    I have four activated through T-Mobile but I don't carry all four with me. I mostly just use them at home and take one with me. Lately I've been using the Note 5 as my main phone since I just got last Thursday.

    I only give out one of the numbers and no one knows the other three.

    Makes sense.. I thought i was the odd on out owning and carrying the 6s plus and the 6s at the same time. You have got me motivated in keeping my options open for adding additional lines

    I've had the four lines 10GB data on each for $120 since September. That's only $20 more then when I was paying $100 for two unlimited lines. I still have more data then I can ever use and I can still have four phones activated and take any phone with me without having to swap sims.

    I'm just having fun with those lines now and I'm sure eventually I'll probably cut it back to two again.

    Ok, got ya. But you would also be paying the instalment plans for the phones if not bought outright? Hey, if that is your passion all the power to you. Can't blame you for that, i end up doing a similar thing with my tablets and phones.

    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.

    It could actually be a battery issue. Take it into an Apple Store or contact Apple Support. You should be covered.

    Run this test on your battery. It's one the Genius Bar uses. If the battery is ok, then it's either a rogue app or something in your settings. Keep your brightness down as low as possible. I keep mine around 30%.
    The test:
    Battery test
    Write down your usage and standby time, press the sleep/wake button (or lock button, as some call it) to put the device to sleep, and set the device down for five minutes. When you come back, take note of the change in time. If your device is sleeping properly, then the Standby time should have increased by five minutes and your Usage time by <1 minute. If your Usage time rises by more than one minute, you have a drain problem. Something is keeping your device from sleeping properly, significantly shortening the time it will last.

    So, here is my battery experience from this weekend.

    My daughter and I went camping with our AHG Troop on the North Shore, Oahu. After arriving at our camp site at around 5:15 PM, I unplugged my phone from the charger it was at 100%. I didn't plug it into a charger again until around 10PM the following night. When I finally plugged it in, it was at 15%. Granted there were a few hours of no usage, being that we were boogie boarding and I don't have a waterproof case for it, and I wanted to use my GoPro instead. I did take a couple of videos and several photos and uploaded several to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I also, when I had a bit of down time, played a couple games.

    To put it in a nutshell, I went almost 29 hours on one charge and even then, I still had 15% left. That was with moderate, what I would call "normal" usage.
