    Crazy situation! My battery drain seems slightly worse than 8.2 but my mail usage is way high. After installing 8.3 from 8.2 I noticed my mail and battery usage slowly increasing. My battery usage will usually go up after an update due to increased usage but will quickly go back to normal. My mail numbers have never increased before. I checked this post and noticed a user have the same issues. I did all that was recommended. Such as erasing my emails and doing a hard reset then reinstalled with no luck. I also reset network settings with no luck. My mail settings are set to fetch and 30 minutes. Nothing is set to push. Finally I erased the two emails I have, not including iCloud mail, and tried to hard reset again. I'm going to give it a day and see if the mail rate goes down but does anyone have any more suggestions? Thank you

    As your app usage stats are for the last 24hrs I would see how you go. Deleting and reinstalling your email account(s) should have cured it.

    Push uses less energy than 30 minutes fetch, try it! And put the fetch on 60 minutes for mail accounts which do not work with push.

    As sunking101 stated, I'm going to wait and see if it evens out after a bit. Thank you.

    And Ultra AleM and others.....I tried to set my gmail account to push and I'm surprised that I do not see a push option (just Fetch and Manual).....I was under the impression that gmail pushed to the iPhone 6 when set to push but apparently not. Does that sound correct? Should I set it up to push anyway and for the individual email line set it up as "push" or "fetch" for 60 minutes? And I believe I have to have the Mail app open for "Fetch" to work at all? What do you suggest? Opinions???

    Enable "push" (it will work for iCloud) and 60 minutes fetch for mails.

    I've set my settings to the above, as well as the changes I stated earlier, and then gave it a day to see how my Mail app shows in the battery usage area and it appears I'm back to normal. Thanks for the help!

    Happy to hear that! How many hours can you get out of a charge now? :)

    I was at 8.5 hrs usage and 18 hrs standby and still had 32% battery when I went to bed last night at which time I plugged back in to recharge. I was happy with the battery on 8.2 but I'm doing even better on 8.3 so far.
