    Anyone one else? My works SE’s (att) battery is dropping 100% to 20% within 5-8 hours without use after i installed 11.4.

    I can still sign previous ios? This is rough.

    I'm experiencing the same thing with an SE on 11.4 - drained from 60/70% to completely empty over night. No further info, I'm afraid.

    EDIT: no battery issues before 11.4, including additional drain from indexing after updates etc

    Thankfully not only me, right? Usually these things fall flat when you are the only one.

    I charged it last noght to 100. Woke up this morning to check emails and 16%. And yesterday morning as well, thought it was odd but just restarted the phone and plugged it back in, thought nothing of it.

    Maybe some process overworking itself after the update (messages in the cloud...? what else is new? checking for nearby airplay 2 speakers too often?). Not any of the user apps in my case according to the battery drain list in settings: just Safari at 33% for the last 24 hours (24% the last week). Nothing unusual.

    Also, battery health in settings reports 94% as max charge compared to a new battery and no throttling.

    Mine has 53% bad signal (phone), rest is outlook 20ish - background. I have good signal. Haven't seen that before.

    My battery health is 100%. Heh, not bad for a 2+ year old phone.

    Same here. Was on 11.2.6 before updating to 11.4 and never had an issue with this draining. Guess I’ll go back to 11.3.1 for now.

    My phone was on 90% last night and woke up to it at 76%. Sitting on my bed stand doing nothing. How annoying.

    Similar situation here. On my SE battery drops from 100% to about 75-80% during the night. Before 1.4 it never dropped to less than 95%.

    My 8plus seems like its also getting hit a bit. Im just gaging by my daily activity and charging times through the year, 8plus % is lower at point of day compared to 11.3.

    This iOS 11 has been a disaster. Who is programming this stuff?

    Pretty much any version has some people complaining about this or that. Doesn't really say much one way or another in relation to this particular thread.

    ip7 here, and battery dropped very fast yesterday after update and phone was warm. Fully charged overnight and keeping an eye on it. So far only 2% drop doing nothing and phone is no longer running warm.

    Try doing the network reset. My iPhone X had the drain issue straight out of the box after restoring from backup, where standby time = usage time. Doing the network reset immediately fixed it. It happened on another occasion and the network reset fixed it as well. Worth a shot. The only thing you lose is previously remembered wifi.

    I have not updated to 11.4 on any of our devices yet.

    Same issue here with a brand new iPhone SE. Phone was at 100% when I went to bed at 12:30 AM. When I woke up at 6:30 it was down to 74%.

    I installed the update iOS 11.4 and now my battery is draining at an alarming rate. I did not have these issues before this update.

    Please fix this issue as I have read others having the same problem.

    I have an iphone 6.

    This is so very irritating.

    After installing, the system will need to re-index and it should settle after 24 hours.

    You need to report you to Apple, not on here. This is just a public forum.

    Just reset my SE to factory default. It's still on 11.4 so I decided to do a little test. I charged it to 100% and then let it sit idle for exactly one hour. When I checked usage it said 34 mins out of the 1 hour. This is with pretty much nothing installed other than what comes on the phone. No emailed addresses added. No additional apps installed. I am connected to Wifi. It's no wonder the phone lost 26% battery in a six hour period.

    Are you syncing with a Windows PC on WiFi. Like iTunes or something. Usually Windows PCs don’t work well for WiFi syncing with my Apple devices.
