iPhone 6s battery usage poor

I had a new iPhone 6s battery fitted a few months ago. When used simply as a phone, the battery lasts quite well. Particularly since IOS update 12.1.2 the battery drains quite quickly when surfing, - I think even quicker when not on WiFi. Maybe it’s just me, but I wonder if others are finding the same?

Apple did install some software which made the battery in older phones drain more quickly than newer phones. If you search on this forum or on Macworld you should find some information about this.

Apple actually slowed down old phones to make the battery last longer click here not to drain quicker

Thanks all. I did get a new battery. I see no reason to be forced to buy a £700 - £900 phone when my one , can be about £195 used, does all I need.

I stand corrected!

Not corrected! Thanks for input. However the battery drain seems to be far worse when surfing than in normal phone use.

Apple did something in the new software update because ever since then I was having the same problem and I thought it's happening to everyone too because my friend told me her iPhone drains battery way too much now. But she sold it and bought iPhone 6s from some website named click here for £149.99 and it's working perfectly. Maybe I should do the same.

Is it not obvious that surfing uses more power than a phone while it's on standby

  Anon-433127 19:19 20 Jan 2019

All I know is that on my iPhone 6s, surfing drains the battery quicker than in phone mode.

  Anon-281249 19:33 20 Jan 2019

So does every other phone

It seems worse after the latest IOS update 12.1.2
