    I have an iPhone 6S running 10.2. I have had it for about a year and it is Jailbroken. Up until last week it had been running perfectly, and suddenly I noticed the battery was draining much more quickly than before. I almost never got below 30% by the end of my work day (9-6), now I have been having to charge it at work. It also seems to be charging more slowly.

    I haven't made any major changes or downloads to my phone nor added any new Jailbreak tweaks. I even went in and turned off background app refresh and location services on a few apps to no avail. Any idea what this could be?

    Battery aging, it happens to everyone eventually.

    You might find a clue by looking at the stats under battery settings.

    A li Ion battery can fail immediately. The last time it's was used, fine, the next time, not so good. Sometimes they deteriorate slowly with age, other times they kinda croak all of a sudden. Maybe that's what's going on with yours. Sudden stroke.

    Yeah, sucks. I did check the stats on my usage and eliminated the main culprit, background app refresh. Am I eligible for the $30 battery replacement, and would I be required to sacrifice my jailbreak?

    How was background app refresh the main culprit? Wouldn't be a particular app/service?

    And, sounds like battery replacement might be a good way to go. Doesn't seem like they'd need you to do anything with your iOS/jailbreak, but that doesn't mean that they couldn't/wouldn't for some reason.

    I've left Bluetooth on because I wear my watch every day, but I was told by everyone here that Bluetooth had a very minimal effect on battery life.

    Try using low power mode and keep eye on battery consuming apps ...

    Haven't changed the battery yet, but device may be reset to factory settings as far as I'm aware of. Just ask about it when scheduling an appointment at the Apple Store.
