So I got my Pro Max near launch and I’ve been noticing pretty severe battery drain when not in use. Looks to be around 2% per hour.

Hate having to make to make these threads but does anyone have any idea what may be causing it? Fetch and push are both turned off if that makes any difference.

Am I seeing this wrong, it’s at 50% in 24 hours. That is great battery! I use to get 12 hours dead. The Max pro now lasts me almost 2 days. Plus what iOS are you on?

Plus all your third party apps are sending data to their servers all through out the day without you knowing. Which sucks ur battery and data. After installing Privacy pro smart vpn it blocked like GB of data being sent weekly. No I am not advertising them.

could be many factors but 2 days out of a battery sounds Good to me.

It wasn’t at 50% after 24 hours, I charged it last night and used it a bit before I went to sleep around midnight when the battery was at roughly 88%. When I checked it at 10AM the following day it was at 68%. So I lost roughly 20% overnight when not using the phone at all. In my eyes that isn’t normal, my old 6s+ would lose maybe 5% overnight.

Also, I’m on 13.1.2.

Not normal drain. Good tips here like checking apps/battery drain. No one likes I when I recommend a full DFU reset and setup as new but backups are nothing but trouble IMO. The battery life of my 11 PM has been nuts.. better than iPad Pro battery life.

I have been off-charger for almost 9 hours, have 2.5 hours of on-screen usage and have 82% remaining.

Yea this new battery is a monster , glad i upgraded from xs max against everyone's words. The battery alone is a game changer 24 hours in with a bunch of long calls and light usage and im sitting at 83%.

Can't beat this.
