    I was checking through my Battery usage the other day and noticed that my Calendar had around 12% (in the last 24 hours) and also the Notes app was listed there as well (around 4%).

    I never use Notes on my iPhone 6 (I use my iPad to add notes, which sync across) and there is no way I have used the Calendar app that much - its not even open in the background.

    Then, when I went to the 'Background App Refresh' setting within the 'Settings' app, I noticed that none of Apple's default apps, actually appear in the list? :confused: Does that mean that all of the Apple default apps, are always constantly working in the background, even when the apps themselves are not actually open?

    I don't think they are working in the background. But if I open calendar for 30 seconds it will show up as 1% in the 24 hour.
