    I’ve had the beta installed on my iPhone SE since the release day and battery has been fine, a little subpar, until the last couple days. The last couple days it drains around 1% per minute that I’m on my phone and it runs a little hot. Any ideas what could be causing it? I have background refresh off for majority of my apps. I just don’t know what it could be, I’ve signed in and out of my iCloud account and reset it by holding down the home and lock buttons, closed all the apps, etc. Anybody else experiencing anything like this?

    Its a beta... Betas (early betas) are not designed to be battery friendly. They are running additional beta software thats gathering diagnostic logs.

    Thanks. I know that, I’ve run pretty much every beta in the past and I’m willing to live with it, but sometimes people have tips on optimization. I’m listening to music right now with my phone plugged in, and it’s losing charge as we speak. It is just abnormal to me because it started out of the blue in the last day or two. I’ve been able to make it through the day until yesterday when it totally started to tank.

    I'm not running the beta but I've read similar reports around here about battery draining even when plugged into charge on iOS 11. Those were mainly on the iPad though rather than the iPhone. However based on that I would stipulate it's likely a bug Apple are looking to fix. :)

    Try doing a Reset Network Settings. That helped my battery drain when on wifi and cellular. You can also check if anything is constantly using Location Services?

    For better or worse, I have found my beta battery experiences in the past couple of years to nearly identical to the final versions.

    What I've been experiencing is the battery life on the phone is sub par but acceptable for a first beta. But any bluetooth connected device (apple watch and BeatsX) are draining very rapidly during the day.

    I feel like my iPad Pro battery life is actually better than non beta.

    That new App Store seems to be the culprit on my side. That is, when I update apps, phone will become hot, and drain battery fast enough to force me recharging it immediately. That is just bad.

    I do love the new AppStore though. I'm sure it will get better. I can actually find new and great apps with it.

    Horrendous. Even standby drains > 60% overnight.

    When GPS is enabled, it still discharges whiled plugged to a charger.

    It started to happen to me as well, around the middle of the last week. The point is however I'm on iOS 10..?? I don't know what happened I didn't do anything that could cause that

    I'm thinking it might have something to do with Apple Music, I turned off GPS except when I'm using apps that need it, and for a minute I thought it was Adguard Pro, but that improved battery for all of 30 seconds. I use music a lot. Is it normal for the feedback app to not have the option to submit feedback for iOS 11? This is my first year as a developer and running DP1.
