    Sometimes I want to know if there is a task that is using extra CPU or energy in the background on my iPad Pro.

    Is there an app that does that for the iPad Pro?
    (Analagous to macOS’s Activity Monitor application)

    The reason such things don’t exist is because iOS do not provide system level access to third party that can manipulate system data.

    And from Apple perspective it’s clear that they want users to just use their mobile platform without knowing / doing anything about how things are done in the system, essentially user is at the focus, not the device.

    "It just works" - yes, until it does not :-( I could have done with a tool like that this week. My ipad battery was going down fast, 20+% with only 1 hour use in the day. Did this for several days until I fully shut down and restarted. Now it is giving what I expect ~ 10% per hour usage. Unfortunately I do not know which app was causing the problem, so how do I avoid it again or get rid of the problem app?

    There are some more best activity monitors as they help to track all the system activities on your device.
    1. System Status
    2. AppSwitch
    3. MemoryInfo
    4. iSyslog
    5. Pad Info
    6. System activity monitor
    7. ActMonitor
    8. SYSTEM UTIL Dashboard
    9. SystemInfo

    I think all of those apps just show the data based on total usage. One can’t control individual app activity like the macOS activity monitor.

    Don’t know how useful that will be for the OP.

    Please stop recommending garbage apps that are a waste of time and money. Those apps are snake oil and don’t help anyone, the OP included.
