    Hello everyone!

    I'd like to ask a general question. Currently I am rocking an Air 2 Wifi only with the lates iOS 8.3. I have read tons of threads about charging my iPad at night does not affect my battery however I prefer to keep everything unplugged. I always unplug my iPad at 100% before I go to sleep however when I wake up I see 20-40 minutes of usage regardless of I received notifications. Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    Probably normal. Do have auto app refresh on? Bluetooth? Email set to fetch frequently? Photo streams? All that stuff is always active per se.

    I find that my Air maybe drops a percent or two overnight and that's it. I have most things turned off though.

    Thanks for the reply s2mikey!

    I have everything turned off except for Fetch New Data which is set to fetch hourly.

    OK then, sounds like you have the right stuff turned off that you don't need. It really shouldn't use much battery overnight then. Is it still doing it?

    Thank you for the reply!

    Yes, unfortunately I am still experiencing 30-40 minutes of battery usage at night.
    Is there a way maybe to clear my battery usage history so I could check which app is responsible for the battery drain?

    Thanks!

    If you go into Settings>General>Usage, you'll see an entry for Battery Usage. Click that and it will break down exactly what apps or services are using what percentage of the battery. Might be helpful to you. :)

    Thank you, I have already checked that. :)

    My problem is that when I wake up and check the battery usage it shows the last 24h so I can not filter out which app/background activity were running while I was asleep.
