XR battery usage
Posted by: bazookaman
Date: October 12, 2021 03:05PM
Mom has an iPhone XR. Couple years old. She uses it sparingly yet her battery dies in about a day. as an example, on Sunday she says she made one phone call and took one pic (she was directing traffic at an event all day)…finished at 4:30 went into store to take a pic of the crowds and her phone was basically dead. So one call + one pic = dead battery. Thats not normal right?

Restart the phone.

My iP7+ started using about 2x the battery it usually does in recent days, basically using a lot of battery while idle. Just restarted and hopefully that will fix it.

Yeah. She just said she was going to "try" restarting it. I was like, you haven't tried that yet???

definitely something is up. my 11 is at 82% but will last me all day. i recently realized that Reddit was running wild in the background on my 11 despite my shutting background refresh down. Doubt she's a redditor but take a look under Show Activity in Battery Health and see what is eating power.

She left it charging all night after she restarted it. She turned all her apps off and shut off background refresh for everything. She really isn't a power user. She begrudgingly uses it for a phone. So there's definitely something up. I've got an 8 and my max capacity is 95%.

Because you all care about my phone, the restart did cure it of the fast battery drain and it's behaving normally now.
