I realised this a couple of days ago. There is a discrepancy between the number of hours shown under Screen On and the actual total number of hours of all the bars in the battery chart.

Screen On shows 2h and 11 minutes. But if I count all the bars individually, it adds up to 2h and 38 minutes. I’m on my 11 Pro Max here. Could this be a bug that 14.5 is aiming to fix?

This bug has been there since iOS 12 DB1. Apple doesn’t know how to fix this. Neither are they trying to. It will never be fixed.

When you use 2 apps at once, it counts the same minute as 2 mins. This causes confusion.

But you cannot have two apps on screen at the same time. If I switch from app A to app B, whatever tasks app A is doing should fall under the Screen Off section am I right?

To me it seems like the cumulated hours does not reflect the actual total number of hours (the duration of each individual bars summed up).

Phone calls etc count as screen on. Even if you’re multitasking. That’s 2 mins counted for every 1 min.

Anyway, Apple products are known to have such bugs. Apple doesn’t know how to fix them. There are so many in each Apple product.

There has never been and most assuredly never will be a perfect version of iOS. It has always been and always will be a work in progress with no end in sight. Get used to the quirkiness of iOS. Thats just how it is
