    Hello people. I have question about battery life. I have iPad Air 2 wifi only. My question is about battery usage. Right now i have about 4 hours and 40mins of usage. And the standby time is 69 hours and 27 minutes. But I have used the device about 3 hours and 30 minutes. So the usage time increased about 1 hour 10 minutes when I did not use the device(device was on standby). Is this normal or is this a problem?

    The battery gauge is dynamic and changes as you change settings. Likely it is reacting to a change you made in settings.

    The OP is talking about the Usage/Standby stats in the Settings/Battery ---> Scroll to bottom.

    To answer the OP, I do think it would be normal for the usage time to go up while not using it due to notifications and other background activities, but an hour+ ... seems high. If it's that high, I would suspect a stuck app. Maybe you have an audio app or game gone wonky that keeps running.

    I would ask the question, how do you know that you've only used the ipad for 3:30? Do you watch the timers that closely?

    Ultimately, when something like this happens, I kill all open apps. If that doesn't help, I reboot and recharge.

    All apps are turned off.But I don't know if an app is stuck or not. I'm not using audio app. I have no games installed. I record the time I'm using the iPad and it doesn't match with usage time that iPad records.
