    I’m not sure why App Store would be using so much battery. Did you have a lot of app updates?

    No, only three or four apps was updated yesterday. Didn't see anything of this before I got to bed last night so it must have happened during the night. First time I see appstore in top of battery consumption

    Probably a glitch. Reboot the device.

    Reboot solves a lot of things like that. Glad it's better today.

    That's not necessarily a battery drain. It could just mean you either spent a lot of time on the App Store or downloaded a lot of apps.

    Check and see if you have Automatic updates enabled under

    Settings>ITunes&Appstore>iTunes&Appstore

    You could have had a bunch of updates come thru at night

    Just keep an eye on that. If background usage is really high there could be something awry.

    Yes, I will keep an eye on it. What do you think it could be if it wasn't just a glitch

    No telling. It could have just meant you were on the App Store a lot during during that 24 hour period in relation to other apps. It's not anything to worry about. Apps need to run in the background so they work as we want them to. Those battery stats don't always mean the one with the highest battery usage is a battery hog. It just means it was used a lot. If you were not on the app store any during that time, then it could have updated several big apps during the night. But, regardless, it's nothing to be concerned with.

    This problem have come back

    App store consume a lot of battery
    I found some more with this problem
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8356050

    I have done a reset and started it up as a new iPhone yesterday and the battery drain came back same night?

    I restarted and it looked OK but I went to bed yesterday with 31% and the phone was dead 8 hours later. Battery usage says 46% was used by app store, think this is crazy.

    Have been in contact with apple support and have been asked to do some screen dumps.

    I really thought a clean start would solve this problem and it toke some hours to set up as new phone

    Strange, I think this issue came with 11.3 but I'm not 100% sure. I didn't have when I bought my phone, it came later on

    I've not had any battery drain issues like that with the App store, but Siri has eaten the crap out of my battery a time or two, and I never used her on those days.

    Not sure what it is that I do differently, but it takes me less than 20 minutes to factory reset my phone and set it up as new. Less than 40 minutes to restore from backup. The only time it takes me more than an hour is when I have to re-add 4.5k worth of music back onto my phone. iTunes takes forever to sync that many.

    I think I solved it on my iPad, all I had to do was close the App Store in the multitasking window and it started to behave itself, which is strange because I had already restarted and reset it by pressing and holding the home and power buttons and that never worked

    I have tried doing that but it only worked for some time. Now I have turned all background data off on app store and for now it's working. I have done some logging for Apple and som technical adviser will lock at it. Hopefully they will find something. When I talked to Apple it felt like they did know about this issue, he said that not all phones are affected of it.

    How and where did you turn that off? Do you mean auto updates?

    Yes, that's probably what it was. I also disabled mobile data, don't know if it changes anything but sens then it didn't happen.
