    My iphone 6 go sleep with 79% battery and wake up with 72%. Wifi off, 4g off, no apps open. My old iphone 6 and 5 lost 0% or 1% in the night. The new just have 3 days, 2 charges and lost 7%. Why? Should speak with the support? Iphone 6 model a1459.

    Some processes still running. Something else going on perhaps. Give it a week and see if it stays that way or not.

    I'd do a few more tests before going to seek support with Apple.

    1. Restart iPhone JUST before going to bed. See if that has any change on % used overnight. Do this for more than 1 day. Record % used.
    2. Then as a control test - use your phone normally for 2 days and do not restart it just before bed. Record % used.

    When I did this I found my usage and % used overnight to be inconsistent and always different. Back when I first got my 6+ there was 0% used overnight and now I'll have a few % - I imagine because of background app refresh, etc... placement of phone, etc...

    But a handful of % used overnight imo is pretty normal. Most nights I have less than 2% used - some nights I'll have 10% but never more.

    If it bothers you, I'd highly recommend just leaving it plugged in all night. You cannot overcharge your iPhone. It will stop charging at 100% and let the phone drain to 95% (even though the display will show 100%) and then trickle charge it back to 100%.

    My iPhone 6 does the same thing too. I've never seen an iPhone lose battery % overnight my 6 does.

    Why not just shut you phone off?

    No matter what you do I think your phone will consume power, it has to. If not how would it know when you push the home button to wake it up? It takes circuits being powered to do the basic functions and 3% is nothing.

    I know, its normal. But my 6 space lost nothing or 1%. I dont know why the new (silver) lost 3%. Same settings. Makes me think if in the normal use on the day, he consume more battery than the space gray.

    I few percent is not worth the worry over. Just try to enjoy you phone and worry about other things.

    Dude, just plug your phone in when you sleep. 1-3% is certainly not worth worrying about. you probably used more than 1-3% while posting and commenting on macrumors about it.

    It's a hardware issue so nothing you can do. It's due to SoC fabricated on TSMC 20nm that has higher current leakage than Samsung fabricated SoC. Even Samsung's old 32nm node could do 6 days standby time with WIFI or cell always on. Apple made a mistake switching to TSMC out of spite but good news is they're switching back to Samsung so the iPhone 6S series will have the long standby time you've known to love.

    Not sure if something fairly typical like that that has bene present in many previous iOS devices and iOS versions is necessarily a hardware issue of some sort.

    No. Just, no. Posting a screenshot on an Android phone that had no usage whatsoever in 6 days is a terrible attempt against bashing TSMC's manufacturing process. That phone could have a battery size almost double that of the 6. Plus, the modem is it's own chip separate from the SoC, anyways, which renders your argument invalid.

    Please stop spreading false information.
