    I'm seeing great battery performance under 9.2.

    I do run Wi-Fi calling as well, which I believe is also adding to my longevity. Is everyone else seeing much better performance? I've never had 75% after 24 hours of use.

    No because it has been great since 9.0 and so it isn't better. I can go from wake up to sleep with still 70+% left.

    Battery is still okay. Very similar to iOS 8. I get ~6-7 hours of use on my iPhone 6. iPad mini 2 gets ~7-9 hours but all I do on it is video and games, which beats the hell out of the battery. Plus this iPad is almost two years old and has had many cycles, so.

    My iPad Air 2 has much better battery life since updating to 9.2.

    i cant say i have seen any difference at all.

    but i dont understand what Usage means (it cannot be only screentime):
    6s+
    - usage 10hours
    - standby 40hours
    (battery was left below 10%)


    safari was using 83% (screentime only 3,6h)
    when i sum apps together, i get around 4hours (screentime).

    so what is the rest of the 10hours of the usage? 6hours is missing... does it mean that "the 6hours" is the sum of the other usage like wifi etc on the background? abit missleading info and seems to be also the reason why i have found alot comments that Usage in ios means screentime which it clearly cannot be. it must be screentime + background processes (like wifi/data).

    No, it has not significantly increased. It's stayed the same since 9.0, with the same improvements in battery life.

    My vote is no. I have not had battery issues prior to 9.2 and don't after.

    Generally iPhone 6 can do better than just 4 hours of battery usage on a full charge (unless we are also talking about days of standby time in conjunction with that and/or being in a poor reception area most of the time perhaps).

    Not seeing much if any difference.
    On just my 6S+, it does seem to stay at 100% longer but drops faster once it starts dropping. More of the old style.

    6S and iPad Pro both have a higher battery drain than 9.1. Reinstalling 9.2 from scratch on my 6S now to see if it helps.

    I didn't have any battery issue, I still don't have any battery issue. So the answer is NO, no gainin iOS 9.2
