    Quite funny issue here:

    1. when i am not using my mac the battery use is decent, can live 2 days with moderate use
    2. when i work during the day for about 10 hours or so, the battery on iphone drains significantly faster - can someone explain what can drain it? iMessage? Continuity? maybe something else?

    Not using the phone as a personal hotspot is it?

    If you are using iMessage on your Mac, your phone's battery will take a hit. Because even though your phone screen is not on, those messages are being updated.

    Make sense. This is what I though!

    UPDATE: I have checked and this does not help. Also disabling forwarding calls to Mac did not helped - still battery drains faster than without my Mac around

    Any other ideas?
