    I don't understand why the wheel is spinning on my home screen in the status bar next to wifi. I removed all apps from multitasking and restarted the phone. Any ideas? Screenshot attached, I think.

    This keeps happening to me. Its so annoying. Just turn your phone off and it will go away. It's not hurting your battery though.

    Same here, and it seems to be related to the app store as it only ever happens after an app update or purchase. Definitely a bug somewhere along the line.

    Glad I'm not the only one. I know it's definitely affecting battery life. I quit all my multitasking apps, checked the home screen, wheel was still spinning. Went to bed with around 30% battery, woke up with 11%. I usually only lose 5% or so a night without charging.

    Usually something related to the App Store or some iCloud related media being stuck in some way. Try disabling iCloud for a bit and/or some App Store and iTunes settings (like automatic updates, downloads, etc.) and see if that might make a difference. Restarting the phone usually makes it go away for good or a long time, but perhaps that might not be the case for everyone it seems.
