Anyone got battery drain with iCloud shared albums?

    Almost every charge my usage time and stand by time is the same. Background refresh is off. No app is showing any abnormal behavior, nor no app is showing any background data usage.

    This occurs for me on my iPhone and iPad 9 out of 10 charges. Same issue for my girlfriend on her iPhone and iPad.

    The only thing I can think of that I have enabled since this occurred is the iCloud shared albums (have notifications disabled).

    It's not draining that much, but it feels like my battery drains quicker when usage time is the same as stand by.

    Anyone got the same problem?

    I've had this same problem and I just think it's a bug. I also have iCloud shared albums but I don't think this has anything to do with it. Doing a reset usually solves the problem for your usage/standby times. I done this but a few weeks later it came back so I done a full restore and my iPhone has been great since. Even the usage time has improved a good bit with everything turned on.
