    This has been going on for some months, I've reset the battery twice to no avail. The thing is out of AppleCare, so there will be no help there. Anyone else having this problem?

    What's consuming the battery?

    Settings > battery

    Is the New app perhaps constantly online and refreshing in the background? They turning off background app refresh.

    Even though its out of AppleCare you can take it in and Apple will test the battery for free. You'll at least figure out if its a hardware or software problem.

    Thank you Mirollin, I'll do that, and Night Spring, that's good to know.

    Yeah mine isn't wuite as bad as yours. My iPP 12.9" uses about 30% in a little more than 2 hours, I think because I have the screen brightness at around 80-85%, then I use safari (which oddly takes a bit of the battery.) Hopefully Apple takes care of you though. :)

    How can he be out of warranty? I thought the pros come with a one year warranty?

    Seems like this is about an iPad Air.
