    Well I mean really.

    I have a multi port 7500mah thin pack that fits in my wallet. There's no excuse other than he whines to hear his own whine. I've never seen someone so averse to doing something reasonable.

    Incidentally I've yet to use that battery pack.

    I seriously need to buy myself a battery pack. I just sometimes carry too many devices, one might be forgotten in the charging routine. LOL

    So I'm having odd issues now weird cus all this talk about battery. I was in hospital yesterday for surgery I used my what they call them power banks or something lil things charge up then plug phone in when needed. Well afterwards I had nurse plug my phone in wall before leaving had 3 1/2 hour long car ride and it plugged in 62% unplugged was 62% was in charge for two hours. Thought that's odd we were leaving and my dad had me get map quest going online to help way out of city ( gives live car view as u drive) and all sudden with data on battery said 96%. Now last night went bed at 2:30 woke up at 8 battery was 100% since charged it. Woke up was at 85% went back sleep for while down 80% I was wondering anyone had any advice ? Maybe was bad update didn't have this problem till 9.0.2 update I don't think battery should decrease 20% well I'm asleep. Thinking about backing everything up do full restore after draining battery almost all way down complete before do that restore.

    Mine was being wonky like that. Have you tried letting it die all the way then charge all the way back up? I did and it fixed the short battery life quite a bit. However, I still get less battery than I did on my 6. I can't say it's the devices fault, why with me being obsessed with Harry Potter magic... I mean live photos... Definitely using it way more.

    Press and hold the home and power button until the phone shuts off and you see the Apple logo. That tends to fix any little quirks like that. The heavy usage while idle may be due to a background process. You may want to check your battery details and see which it is. I'd suggest turning off background app refresh as well.

    Just did home power button I'm heading out more enough battery so I'll do that let it die complete then recharge, as far as app background refresh I don't have huge data plan I hardly use data so all my background app refreshes and such are off and location services r on only for things I need. Thanks if the let die recharge don't work I'll restore cus I updated over air wouldn't download iTunes for some reason so I'll try that next.

    As the OP of this thread it would seem my 6s is doing much better with battery life than when I first got it,,, perhaps implementing the suggested menu settings to save battery life and perhaps some battery break in time.
    While I'm not getting amazing battery time I am getting much better battery time than I was at first.

    I really thought I was going to open this thread and hear some good suggestions on battery life but it basically turned into an argument about outlets and battery packs.

    So somebody should spend $100 to get decent battery life? And make the phone even bigger?

    They are overpriced....I should know I bought one though I really don't use it





    As far as their battery packs I wouldn't touch them. Anker sells a 21000 mah one for $40 and I have a 13000 one for free for reviewing one

    EDIT: The screenshots in this thread are useless. iPhones count the usage since the last full charge. That means if you bump charge your phone during the day, it does not reset that counter. The counter only resets when your phone is charged to 100% (i.e. you get the full charge notification from the phone while it's plugged into the charger). There's no way to know if the phone wasn't bump charged during the day other than the person posting the shots saying they didn't do it, which, frankly... isn't enough (more people would lie to make the phone look good than give Apple the feedback it needs to start putting bigger capacity batteries in the phone - Android and Windows communities are no different, BTW). On Android there is a graph where you can see clearly where the phone was bump charged. No such thing exists in the iPhone's battery stats.
    I'm coming back here to show the displayed message when the phone is plugged in between full charges. While there is no graphical depiction, the system message clearly states that the phone was in fact plugged in.

    Oh. So you DO have a battery pack that you COULD use but CHOOSE not to use it.

    OK. Thanks.

    Ironic, isn't it?

    Mophie cases aren't cheap but you get what you pay for. I've had a few in the past but haven't felt the need with my 6 Plus or 6s Plus. If I did want one, I wouldn't be so worried about throwing down $100 for my $1000 iPhone.

    Because the 6 Plus barely fits into my pocket without case on it? You shouldn't need to spend more money to get a days worth out of your phone

    And we've already discussed ad nauseum that your idea of getting thru a day is way off the bell curve and that you have opportunities to recharge that you choose not to avail yourself of. Apple designs all day battery life for most people, not you.

    Going to some place to purposely charge your phone and waste time isn't an option.

    Also carrying a brick and cable to solely do that in your pockets isn't exactly comfortable

    You've already said your a student (at least part time) and that classrooms have plugs and you just goose not to sit near them.
    You have also already said that you are already in subway stains and numerous people have said that there are outlet available if you look.
    Being a student and because you've already said you carry around a Anker backup battery and I imagine you have other school supplies like textbooks, notebooks and writing instruments and you really want me to believe that carrying a small cable and charger is a big deal?

    Want me to take pictures of these invisible outlets at subway stations? I've been living in nyc for 25 years and there is zero outlets on the platforms. It took until 2 years ago to even get cellphone service in certain stations in Manhattan.


    Penn Station isn't the subway.....


    So just because you are neat outlets mean Apple doesn't need give a big battery? So I can make a phone and give it a 900 mah battery and say hey you're near an outlet why do I need to give you a big battery? I mean Samsung said something along the lines with that with the Samsung galaxy tab s2 release and people hammered them....

    There have been other people who also live in and/or frequently travel to NYC who have said that the outlets exist. And I believe them, not you. You, yourself, have said that outlets are available in classrooms and you choose not to use them.
    And I don't care how many mah are in my phone if it gets me thru a day. So 900 or 5000 makes no difference to me and he vast majority of people. It's just a spec. I care about the phone's battery getting me thru a day. I would guess most people would agree with me and for most people he iPhone's existing battery capacity does get them thru the day. We have already established that your use case is an extreme outlier (9am - 3am). Apple designs battery capacities to last most people all day most of the time. Since you are an outlier, you need to pay the price of carrying a battery pack or finding charging locations.

    WHY would you buy it and then complain about the price or decide not to use it? Or could it be that you simply like to create drama?

    I can once again take pictures of these invisible outlets for you... I live there and there is zero outlets on the platform for brighten beach station for the Q and B train..... There is all zero for the F train stop that's near me. Also none where my job is on the D,N, and R stop.

    I can also take pictures of these invisible people supposedly charging their phones on the invisible platforms


    Apple couldn't care less about battery life and more about making it thinner.
