    The App Store has been draining my battery like crazy to the point where my phone would get really hot. I'd reinstall iOS and it would be a temporary fix just to find myself repeating the process over and over again. You have to manually close the App Store, open the App Store, hold the power button, when it asks if you want to turn the phone off then release the power button, and then hold the home button until the phone closes the App Store.

    This method has fixed my battery/iPhone getting hot. Now if it happens again I'd just repeat the process vs reinstalling iOS. ✌️  ⌚️ 

    Did you buy chance try a hard reset? It should accomplish the same thing, it force quits everything in the background.

    Yes I did that about two weeks ago to find my App Store showing 47% usage/iPhone getting hot. After I tried the manually force closing method the App Store has gone from47% to 20% usage.

    Another fix I'd recommend trying is,to sign out of the App Store, then sign back in. 20% usage from the App Store is a pretty high, abnormal amount.

    And this is why you don't just blindly leave everything running in the App Switcher 100% of the time.

    Sure in a perfect world you shouldn't have to fully close out apps (because iOS is supposed to handle all of it on its own.) But realistically, sometimes apps get stuck and don't get suspended for whatever reason and cause issues like these.

    I fully close out apps after use that I do not use regularly and never run into these type of issues of rogue apps sucking up battery. I personally only ever leave Messages, Mail and Safari in the App switcher and close out everything else.
