    So I'm experiencing major battery usage from the App Store constantly trying to use my location, even when I've set it to never use my location, it still tries whenever I wake my phone up.

    I've set it to Never use my location, yet it's the only thing trying to access my location

    And the drain is significant, this is my battery at 40%

    Defiantly a serious issue, as its killing my battery much faster than iOS 7.

    Also wherever I go to turn off Location services it requests I turn it back on so the App Store can use my location

    That issue was causing my iphone 5 to overheat. Turn off the popular near me location service and see if it improves.

    That's what worked for me. There's another thread in the forum where some other people have posted what worked for them. I've linked it below.
