    I've never seen iAd in my battery use before today. Anyone know what this is referring to? It isn't much battery use but why is there 16 minutes of background use?

    perhaps an app you use was updating content in the background and the iAds were part of that?

    Try limit Ad Tracking and maybe these as well

    Settings > Privacy > Advertising > Turn on Limit Ad Tracking, then press Reset Advertising Identifier

    Settings > General > Background App Refresh > switch it OFF

    Settings > App and iTunes Store > Turn OFF everything here.

    I wouldn't turn off background app refresh for everything if you still want your smartphone to behave like a smartphone, but double checking the Privacy setting is a good reminder/recommendation.

    @austriak , I've never seen it listed before either. Having you been using an unusually large amount of free apps/games? They're usually ad-supported.
