Hi all,
I’ve got an iPhone SE I use occasionally as a “work phone”. So it’s on 4-5 days out of the week. During this time, it works great and I love it. Battery life is normal for the age of the phone.

However, when I turn the phone off it dies very quickly. Usually within 24 hours. I’ve never seen this happen with any phone I’ve ever owned before. An iPhone 7 is my daily and is mostly on all the time, but it doesn’t drain when it’s off.

it’s running iOS 13, has since the GM release on the 10th. This problem was occurring back on iOS 12 as well.

Try setting up as new on iOS 13. No betas. If you continue to have a problem, you should take to the Apple Store.
I wasn't on any betas. I went from 12.4, to 13.0 GM on Sept 10th.

This was happening before upgrading to 13. However if it becomes a more prominent issue I'll just take it in.
