    Hi all, I've updated my 5s to iOS 9 and since then my battery is taking a hammering from the photos app. The battery usage shows approx 75% use from photos and my battery is dead in half the time it normally takes. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Do you have photo library enabled? Maybe it's trying to upload photos in the background?

    Give it some time. I have a large photo library and it took several hours to do all the indexing and thumbnail generation it needed to do.

    Once it finished battery life returned to normal.
