iPhone battery discharging at a fast rate


#1

iPhone 6. Battery health shows 98%. Overnight, it drops 5%. While in use, it’s dropping 1% every 3 minutes. Continuous use only gives me 4 1/2 to 5 hours between charges. I have done all the “tricks” to preserve the battery, but no luck. Out of warranty, so a new battery or phone will come out of my pocket.


#2

Someone else asked about this a while back, seems there was an iOS update that was causing the battery to drain faster.


#3

Currently on iOS 12, but just got notified that 12.0.1 is available. After it’s downloaded, I’ll charge the battery and see if it was fixed.
