    Mine is nowhere close. Sounds like you have the air 1 by mistake. Using for 2 and half hours on just Internet gets me 68%.

    I've had mine for almost a month now and while battery was less than desirable at first, it's really improved with time. It's almost as good as my Air first gen was.

    I agree! I have been amazing, I had an iPad air and my battery life was atrocious, the air 2 blows it away with the same amount of usage and same settings as I had before with my air and I did do a lot of clean installs on my air and never improved, but with the air 2 clean install, just blows away what my old air had

    I get the ten advertised hours, sometimes a bit more with light to moderate use and 40% brightness. So thats around two hours less than my ipad mini 2.

    all you need to do is restore from factory when plugging your iPad into your computer and when its done, do not restore from a backup, start from scratch again

    I haven't a clue what apps use more power. My last 7 days usage puts safari at the top of my list.

    Just goes to show how wrong it can be.

    Usage is not screen on time, but also background stuff by the looks of it.

    The battery life is more amazing given that your new iPad is nearly a half pound lighter than your old. Glad to hear you are enjoying your new iPad.:)

    Unplugged this morning at 0615. Now at 16%. with just under 4 hours of usage. I'm thinking something isn't right.
