What is home and lockscreen usage under battery usage for iphone 6 ? It's taking up a significant percentage of battery , is it just browsing apps on the home screen ? Anyway to make it use less battery ?

That's exactly what it is. I assume people spend more time there than they realize. I guess maybe one way to reduce battery usage there might be disabling parallax?

It's also just turning on display to see the clock...

Not to mention all those useless notifications that wake up the screen. I really like that Apple finally gave us the tools to really monitor this stuff. Now maybe at least some people will consider changing a few habits before they complain about how the iPhone has poor battery life.

It's also quick reply from the lock screen, which I certainly do a great deal of now.
