    hello people in setting app the battery app the last 24 hrs says messenger 39 minutes in background but I did not even open messenger at all. I restarted the phone and click setting then battery it showed messenger 39 minutes background could it be reading wrong information the iPhone battery app in settings ?

    Messenger app seeems have some features being activated in background regardless.

    And, restart phone can stop the number growing but cannot reset that number.

    Are you referring to FB Messenger? If so its a bug with FB. Even if you fully close the app and have background refresh off, it is still running in the background. I keep reporting the bug to FB and they have released 4 updates and it is still occurring. What has worked for me (sometimes) Is opening the app, hold the lock button until you get the slide to power off, then hold home button until app quits. This is truly killing it off in the background, but next time you opening the app, the issue will just start up again.

    So, you are just experiencing the background bug that I am definitely experiencing. If you notice the battery draining faster because of it, just make sure when you are done with the app to force quit it via the method I described. Its the only way to completely kill it off, well without deleting the app.

    I do use FB messenger from time to time. Maybe I need this practice also to kill it off.

    39 minutes of background usage should not cause an 8% battery drain on a 6s+. There could be other things affecting your battery as well.

    Did you receive any Messenger push notifications sent from other people throughout the day regardless of you opening the app or not?

    Well, it's not the battery app, but simply the battery section of settings. It lists things over a period of time. Did you use FB Messenger at some point in the last 24 hours at all? When was the last time you used it or got a message notification from it?

    Your circumstances are exactly identical to mine. Notifications off, app closed, background refresh off, yet there is still background usage. So thats the bug of the app. The 8% battery drain I am not experiencing. Especially after only 39 minutes.

    When you say 8% battery drain, are you referring to 8% in the settings app, or you have seen your device gone from 92%->84% during that 39 minutes. If its the former, its not really 8% battery drain, thats just 8% of usage over the last 24 hours. Not your current charge cycle.

    Odd. I use actually FB Messenger app here and there and don't see anything like that. In fact I'm sure I've used it once or twice in the last 7 days, but it doesn't even appear on the list of app using 1% or more of battery in that section for some reason.

    Interesting. I have messenger but never use it. Looking through my battery stats it doesn't even make the list.

    If you aren't opening the app at all then this is just as much of a bug with iOS as it is with Messenger. There is some "rule breaking" going on here. There shouldn't be a 3rd party task automatically running in the background without some sort of user intervention.

    Its no different than when FB had this issue a year ago with the launch of iOS 9. The issue use when you close the app, its not actually killing off the background processes. Its not 'listening' to the background refresh tab and is just continuing to run in the background. They ultimately fixed it with FB, but its still happening with Messenger. Doesn't really have anything to do with iOS.

    Doesn't quite seem to be consistent though between users/devices (similar to how the FB issue wasn't quite consistent either), which makes it all that much stranger/trickier.

    Completely agree. It occurs on my 6s but not my Air 2. So its hard to diagnose the issue. OP, try submitting a bug report to FB via the messenger app. If more people do it, they may work on it.

    For Messeger to run in the background the app is likely receiving a remote notification to enable background mode. However he said he had notifications off so the app shouldn't be getting triggered.

    EDIT : Sorry reread the previous post. OP under settings > notifications do you have messenger notifications turned off?

    Things will still show up in settings and battery usage, that's normal.

    As for 3D Touch, you simply touch and hold rather than pressing.
