    I installed battery doctor and it's saying find my friends is consuming a lot of power but I have sharing location off and everything associated with it. Also I books and podcasts I have those turned off also. Should I trust this?? My battery doesn't match up to what other people are getting on the other 6s's

    Does it show find my friends running in the background a lot? You can see that by going to Settings > Battery > Tap

    This is not your actual usage. This just shows the different levels of usage. Find My Friends is an example of an app that consumes a lot of power. My Battery Doctor app shows the same thing. And I don't even have that app.

    Under my normal battery settings none of those show up but when I go into battery doctor and click on find my friends it says this app is consuming a large amount of power. I'm just iffy because I see what other people are getting battery life wise on they're 6s's and mines not close.

    It shows that to everyone. It's not your usage. It's just saying that app is an example of an app that uses a lot of battery. Here's mine!


    Don't worry with this. If you're not currently using Find My Friends, turn off location services for it.

    This will disable it for others if they use it to locate the OP.

    I would be more likely to believe iOS reporting of battery usage for the app than a 3rd party.

    That's the point. What he is looking at is not his usage. It's an example.
    I don't even have that app, but get the same thing. It's just showing examples. But if he's worried about battery, why not cut it off.

    Actually, you do have that app. It's a standard non-removable app in iOS. Everyone has it.

    LMAO mAh/minute. I'll expand that... milliAmp-hours per minute. milliAmps per hour per minute if you want it in full. That is technobabble bullcrap. The app is a POS, a scam, a witch doctor. The best advice is to delete "Battery Doctor" and get on with using the phone.
