    You can disable the motion activity setting thru settings and then privacy

    This is recorded by the M7/8 chip and is specifically designed to use little power and work when the A7/8 is in standby. I'm all but positive you can't turn off the chip and it is always working, even if you disable tracking (it just doesn't keep a record).

    If you haven't noticed it draining the battery why worry?
