    Why is Siri draining my battery while is off? I already tried to turn on/off Siri, and restart the phone

    That shows usage from the last 24 hours or more even (depending on the tab). Have you had Siri disabled for at least a full day without re-enabling and disabling it again? Also, have you used anything like dictation?

    Yes, all the time, I never use Siri or dictation. It shows the last 24 hours because I did a hard reset to fix it, and still is draining my battery

    Just because its there, doesn't mean its actually draining your battery. It says 6% but tap on it. How many minutes did it use? I've guessing 1-2 minutes.

    That I can't answer.

    Try this:

    "Found the fix! If you have turn Siri off turn it back on when you go to the audio selection or suggestions you will see that it is set to all ways on. I set mine on hands-free only, turned Siri off. Restarted the phone and battery usage went back to normal."

    Dude 6% of what? At least tap the clock symbol to see how many minutes it used. And if it's only a couple of minutes from the whole thing why even care about it?

    I did and there's no minutes, seconds, anything. Yes it cares to me because the battery is drained by Siri while is off and not used at all

    From day to day does that stat change for Siri (as in being less of a percentage or anything like that)?

    If there is no minutes, then no battery is used. Did you do what I suggested?

    Doesn't mean the issue won't return. You may want to verify with what I posted above in the link.

    How do you know it worked so quickly? It takes 24 hours of those stats to reset in your battery preferences.

    Doesn't mean the problem is solved.. There is a reason why it happened originally. It will likely return.

    Do you have an Apple Watch? I have this same problem, but only when I have my Watch paired. I have Siri completely disabled, no dictation, etc., but whenever my Watch is paired, Siri inevitably shows up as using battery.

    Do you have siri suggestions in search enabled? Maybe it's related to that?

    Yes, but I don't think so because it is the first time that Siri was in the battery stats

    That's what I suspect too. I have a few bug reports filed about it. I recommend you file one as well: http://bugreport.apple.com/
