Battery Useage

iOS & iPadOS

Since updating to iOS 11, I have seen a dramatic change in my battery consumption. I am draining much faster than before, and I haven't figured out why.

I remember seeing a list of apps, ranked by percentage of battery consumption. When I now look in the Settings Battery section, all I see is a button to turn on the low power mode. Is there still a list like this, and if so, where might I find it?

Thanks in advance.

It should be there. Go to settings-battery and keep swiping past on/off low power mode. it should be there. If it's not there I don't know what to tell you.

Yes, the information about Battery use of apps. should be there, like cool cat described.
Here on iPhone SE with iOS 11 the battery is draining much faster. When I use low power mode its the same. With iOS 10 I had 3 or 4 days by normal usage. Now (iOS 11) in low power mode with everything off and a little bit usage I have 1 or maybe 2 days left. Thats annoying! How I said - everything off. Nothing in the app-switcher, bluetooth and localisation off - what else can we do? Reset does nothing too.
Thank you for hints!

My issue was with the Voice Over behaviour on the screen. When I flick right, I get the end of screen bonk after hearing the text description of the low power mode. If I glide around the screen, that's all I find.

However, a three finger swipe up revealed the rest of the stuff i was looking for. Focus is jumpy, and it goes immediately to the bottom of the list of apps. Swiping is erratic.

But, I did find the list and am grateful you encouraged me to keep looking.

I still don't see an outright culprit for my power drain though.
