Started out at 100% at 7 am. It’s now 1 pm. Already at 48%. My battery life is at 85% so not critically bad yet. Could there be something running in background draining it.

You should have la look under battery in the settings app.

There is a list of apps and how much battery each is consuming.

Also are you using Spotify or have a gmail account in the mail app?

More than likely you have a rogue app that’s draining the battery. With that being said, reboot your device and then monitor the battery settings to see what app is using the most battery.

In addition, check the locations setting to see what apps might be using your location constantly that shouldn’t.

I have fewer weather apps after reading this! I looked and found that one of them was at the top of my battery usage list… at 45%! I deleted it as fast as I could!

View attachment 131314 What’s deal here. No way my screen is on 6 hrs plus and off 23 minutes. Could something be wrong?

It you tap on “show activity” you should get a better idea of what is happening.

You could try limiting background app refresh under general, in the settings app and see if that makes a difference.

Best of luck op.
