    i see a lot of people saying the iPhone 6s+ battery has been great and whatnot, and I was one saying that after 3 or so weeks.

    Has anybody had issues with the battery recently?
    Mine was all fine and running great and whatnot, but the past few days at work it's been at about 5-10 percent around 5 o clock when it was at 100 at the beginning of the day.
    Use to make it 2 days without a charge while working and in school and I'm not using it for anymore than I was in the beginning..

    Yes very much so. It and messenger tend to not suspend correctly due to a bug and the eat your battery.

    Your battery stats should give you a clue on what is using the battery more then usual.

    Yep, you can check the battery stats and it will tell you where the power is going

    When checking this it says 18% home screen
    12% Facebook and 11% messaging

    I really don't use the phone much so don't understand why it's been dying so fast all of a sudden

    Try getting rid of Facebook for the day and see what happens.

    Facebook has an update available today.

    Might help... not enough reviews yet for it to show them so I don't know user feedback. Make sure you still disable it in the background data section if you haven't already.

    I'm also waiting to see the results of the latest release. Too bad they use a generic template for updates so you have no idea what changed.

    Disabling background refresh for it can help, but it on its own doesn't prevent Facebook from running in the background if it wants to.

    So after deleting Facebook my phone lasted me about a day and a half. Starting k think that may have been most of the problem
