Definitely not our issues here (my wife is having problems also). I actually am not on my phone very much these days, especially on my work days, but sitting idle it drains far more than it should be, at work and at home when I'm on wifi. My iPad is really bad and goes from a full charge to fully drained just sitting idle in about 24 hours, maybe 30 or so. Now much of that one's problem is the age (iPad Air 2 about 5 years old now), but the current state has been a dramatic change very recently. My settings (iPhone and iPad) are fairly aggressive at prioritizing battery life, and I've done the usual troubleshooting steps. We'll see how this update works out.LIAB, I haven't seen any battery problem, but I have the brightness set to be not so bright, and I am mostly on WiFi, which, I think saves some battery time.
I have an iPhone 8 not an XR so my battery experience may not be the same as yours. I do have BT and AirDrop enabled. I can charge the phone to 100% around 6 PM and leave it on standby all night and in the morning it still shows 100%. It does drain during the day even on standby but usually only around 10 to 15% at the most.I am curious for those of you who are not having battery drain issues, do you have bluetooth disabled, or is it enabled but maybe you have AirDrop disabled?
Good point. I’ll give that a whirl if the battery continues to drain with just BT off for now. I have all night to experiment, but given how dramatic the difference was with the iPad, I’m confident I’m on track. It may be AirPlay, or heck maybe just toggling BT off and back on will be enough.You can also do an experiment with Airplane mode to see if it drops. If it does, it is something other than cell or wifi or bt. If it doesn't turn on cell/wifi/bt one at a time to see which trigger the drop. You can have one or more still working in Airplane mode by turning them back on individually (at least WiFi and BT, which lets you isolate Cell as well).
