    Hi Guys,

    Just wanted to know if I very too often, lets say all the time I use a Bluetooth Wireless ear buds like Apple AirPod or any other competitor brand product, I believe since Bluetooth and Wi-Fi or Cellular Internet Connection is simultaneously working it would drain my iPad battery faster right ? But If I do it all the time while watching Videos or listening to Music. Will it in long term shorten the lifespan of my iPad Battery ?

    I have used wireless headphones for years and it does not seem to hurt the battery. I find it uses little power on my iPhone or iPad.

    Does it shorten the lifecycle of the battery ?

    It might use a few percent of your battery if used for hours. I can not see it shortening your battery's lifecycle.

    Don’t worry about that too much. My battery cycle on iPhone 6s Plus reaches 600 yet the battery life is not affected that much. iPad has a much larger battery. So don’t worry.

    Bluetooth will use some power. It's not magic, after all. But it's probably pretty negligible compared to other things. Just use your device how you want and enjoy it. The battery will likely last for years.
