    What do you have brightness set to? Also, do you have cellular or do you have Bluetooth on? Asking because my battery life isn't as good as yours, but I do have brightness turned up pretty high.

    I didn't take any screenshots, but I was at about 33% after streaming Twitch for about 5-6 hours straight at 100% brightness.

    My brightness varies. When taking notes in class I have it pretty low, but then again I was outside in the bright sun for probably an hour where it was at 100%.

    I have the wifi only version, but was teathered to my iPhone for several hours. The brightness is set on auto and true tone is enabled.

    I was going to start my own thread but saw this one. I got my IPP today and charged it up. Played some Hearthstone and browsed around for about 15 minutes before I had to go to work them put it to sleep. Came home and turned it on and it as at 70%. Seems kind of fast. Does Hey Siri drain it really bad?

    I have hey Siri enabled, but I haven't really used it. Is yours the cellular version?

    Weird. Give it a few days. See if it's any better.

    I think "hey siri" does drain a lot of battery?
    If I turn it off overnight ( about 8hrs ), the battery stay at 99 - 100% and 96 - 97% if I turn it on

    For me? Incredible. I got it Thursday but didn't use it much on Friday. I used it for hours today. I have yet to unwrap the charger.

    So far I am getting awesome battery life on my new 9.7" iPad Pro. I have 51% battery life left and I am at 10 hours of usage and almost 24 hours of standby.

    Says "iPad has been plugged in Since the last full charge." so how long have you plugged it in?

    I reckon that the cellular version gets a lot less time.

    I guess I posted too soon. I think I got mine out of the box at around 85% and thought I fully charged it while it was restoring. I came back from Batman v Superman and used it quite a bit and battery seemed as good as or better than IPA 2.

    What battery percentage did everyone have out of the box?

    Do you know if they are fully charged after manufacturing and basically you get a sense of the drain since then? I only ask because in my years of buying apple products, the ones with the highest percentage out of the box - always went on to have the best battery lives.

    I know a lot can vary and both my questions are probably worthless, but I figured I would ask anyway.

    When I got the wifi model only it came at 100% charged. I went ahead and returned it for the wifi + cellular data and came with 88% charged.

    My battery isn't performing as well as others, but that may because of my usage. I only got 7.5 hours of use out of it, but I have brightness at about 80% and about half my usage was streaming Slingbox. Although I do have cellular, this was all over WiFi. My gut tells me if I turned brightness to even just 50% my usage would increase a lot.

    do you mind if i ask what the charge was out of the box? I am getting about the same hrs, which felt short too me. I do have the pencil connect but used it only occasionally (15-30 min in total).

    I was wondering why I had 10 hours of usage and still had 52% left. I thought it didn't look quite right to me. I don't remember plugging it back in so not sure how long. I charged it overnight last night so will see what the result is later tonight. Then I can get a better indication on what kind of battery usage I am getting.

    Mine came with 90% charge out of the box. Down to 3% now after using it yesterday and today. Wasn't going to read too much into it until the first full charge. Won't even tell me my usage until then anyway. But I assume I've gotten at least 8 hrs between the two days. And it does say 40% usage went to medibang paint which might be a less efficient app.

    How long is charging taking people?
