Trade in and save big📱:Get an iPhone 11 for free

    I am on the T-Mobile network, having finally switched from Verizon after over ten years for the purposes of paying less AND having unlimited data. However, I noticed that I go from 100% to almost 30%! in less than six hours. Is there a recent battery drain issue for the iPhone?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    It could be a signal issue. As your phone searches for signal, or switches between towers, it uses more battery. It could be Verizon had a more steady signal and your phone did less work, and now the signal with T-Mobile is not as good and your phone has to search more or hop towers more.

    How old is your iPhone? If your cellular signal is good, then it may just be the phone getting older. What battery life does it say in settings > Battery? There's several things that could cause this.

    Did you use "Battery Saving Mode" ??
    please turn off your cellular data when you are not using data.

    There shouldn't be any "issues" happening.

    Like others have suggested, are you on LTE or wifi most of the day, installed any recent apps, etc? I'm still running a 7+ (pre ordered) and I'm still ending the day with at least 25% battery left. And I use my device about 60% work and 40% personal.

    This seems odd. I have an 8 Plus, and my Battery is doing really well. For example. I charged my phone early yesterday afternoon, and almost 24 hours later, I still have 50%. I use my phone A LOT!

    Since your post is a little over a month old, I'm wondering how it's doing now? Had you just downloaded an update? Sometimes that affects battery life for a day or so. Keep us posted!
