I upgraded before lunch and my my phone has dropped over 30% with minimal use. I'm really not impressed - at one point I was watching the battery percentage dropping even though the phone was in my hand. So I've gone from having a phone with reasonable battery life to one that's going to struggle to last the day. Grrrr!
Sorry, I just wanted to have a rant!
Solved! Go to Solution.
My phone seems to be OK today and I think I know what the problem was. When I got home last night I was going through it and I realised it was syncing my photos to iCloud as I had told it to do so when I set up iOS 10. I had thousands on there so it was presumably draining the battery. When it finished doing that it no longer run hot and it's only lost 10% of the charge since 6.30 this morning.
Thanks for all your help.
go through all the settings to ensure everything is as it should be i has 10 as a beta on my 6sand it was fine and my 7 is also fine on battery life.
Which handset do you have?
I've got a 6S. I think everything is OK but to be honest I can't remember how it was set up on iOS 9. I don't think anything is running in background, location services are off (apart from the essentials) and I can't think of anything else. It was fine yesterday so it's got to be something to do with the update.
Have you done a reset after the upgrade ?
ok before a reset look here https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201264 and see what is draining the battery
Iphone reset without a wipe is home button and off button 10 seconds until apple logo appears and then let go a bit like a control alt delete in windows loses nothing http://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Apple-iOS-Devices-iPhone-iPad/Iphone-Reset-and-dfu-modes-for-all-versio...
Hi @Harrysmum2008, Let us know how you get on after a restart of your iPhone. My 6S now has iOS 10 and I've not noticed such a difference personally! Hopefully, its just a temporary thing for you
Right, the 3 highest over the last 5 hours are message (20%), home and lock screen (19%) and settings (17%).
On a side note, can someone tell me how to delete a picture from an iMessage I've received? Someone sent me an irritating flashing picture and I can't get rid of it!
