    Hello!
    My iPhone 6s consumes a lot of power by just doing normal thing.I contacted  and they run some diagnostics on my device and told me that the battery is ok. The question is what is eating my battery( done 2 restores).Background off and also very light use but I constantly lose 2-3% per minute or two! Please help me

    Have you checked the battery usage in settings to see what thst shows as far as what's using your battery and how much of it?

    Looks like not having a mobile signal and having a bad mobile signal is likely what's behind a good part of it.

    The issue is your reception. Nothing more nothing less.

    Something must be wrong, because when just unlocking and going into twitter eats 1-2%!

    I'm having the same problem with my 5S, except I *know* it has nothing to do with reception or signal; very strong.

    A couple of weeks ago, just out of the blue, one day my iPhone 5S decided to go through the battery like nobody's business. We're talking with no apps in the background, going from a 100% charge before bed to 18% when I wake up six hours later.

    The obvious stuff:
    - Factory reset, setting up as a new phone (without restoring the backup)...no difference.
    - Background refresh is 100% off.
    - Apps that use location services are set to either "Never" or "While app is in use"
    - No Bluetooth.
    - Brightness set to the lowest possible
    - Removed iPhone from its case to reduce the chances that it's an overheating issue
    - No new apps were installed that might have started causing the issue, and in fact many apps had been deleted because I was running out of space.

    I'm on iOS 9.3.2.

    I took the phone to the Apple Store. They ran some hardware diagnostics and found no hardware problems, including with the battery.

    One thing they did find at the Apple Store, though, was that "stacks+passd" shows up on the crash report like a rash...I tried Googling (and Binging and DuckDuckGoing) "stacks+passd" but got no results.

    Any thoughts?? Of course, I could have them change the battery for $85 or send it off to iRescue and save a few bucks, but due to my job and literally needing an app on my iPhone to be able to do my job (security is a huge concern where I work and I need my phone for two-factor authentication) makes that *not* an option.

    If the Apple genius bar guys can't figure out what's wrong, but without using the phone the battery is draining while they're staring at it (I mean, 2% in a few minutes is easy to test) then it's something they can acknowledge and they will trade the device. Surely it's under warranty still?

    Poor cell service will consume a battery within a few hours. I had no coverage in the middle of the desert, phone went from 100% to 10% in 3 hours and 10 minutes (iPhone 6s). And thats standby time, not even usage time. I normally get 10 hours of usage and 18 hours of stand by out of my battery. Your issue is solely poor reception.

    Also in Airplane mode same problem and the biggest question is a day before that happened the battery health of 98% suddenly jumpped to 89% with no reason and from there it began...First iPhone and then Apple Watch.

    ***Also before this LTE was using a little bit of my battery in hours...now every few minutes 1%...

    Try to completely discharge battery and when phone turn off plug it into charger and charge for a hour after it reach 100% . Maybe that's something with a chip on battery. I moved from Android - mark me if I am wrong with this idea but in case of typical laptop battery it helped.

    Well, in today's time it's one of 5 things, Internet cat videos, social media, the battery monster, apps requesting your location , or no signal, I'm willing to bet it's no signal.
