    Hi all,
    Something I’ve noticed is my phone battery dropping 50% over night. According to the battery information it’s all Siri.

    As you can see from the attached screen shot, nothing on the phone is being used, I was asleep.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    IOS 12.1.2

    Turn siri off then on again, check data usage for it too (i see no wifi icon), and update iOS you arent on the latest.

    I updated IOS yesterday and the same again last night.

    There is no WiFi icon because I’m writing this on the train.

    The thing is, it’s only started recently. The phone would normally last 1.5 days.

    Tonight I’ll try and disable Siri. Losing 35%+ in 7 hours with zero activity is not a good sign

    OK, Siri off and we have normal battery usage.
    I’ve re-enabled it - “hey Siri” and will see how it goes tonight. I’m still not sure how Siri could munch all that battery

    Same here, I normally charge on my charging mat over night but decided I'd let the battery run down every so often so noticed it the other night. I'll see how it behaves. Last night it only dropped 3% which I'd say is perfectly normal.

    Simple, some loop bug in the code is always possible, happens fairly frequently.

    Yep, or they're listening to my Mrs babbling in her sleep :p
    Maybe now it's been off and back on, maybe that'll cure it

    Before you turned Siri off. Did you try a simple reboot? I power cycle my devices every so often. I began to notice that these devices are so great. That we honestly never turn them off or hardly ever reset them.
