iOS 11.1 focuses on bug fixes and feature enhancements, hundreds of new emojis, re-includes the 3D Touch gesture to access multitasking on iPhone which is missing from the initial iOS 11 release, and will likely include a few new features like Apple Pay Cash.

    billybobby, there’s something else going on with your phone. I’ve got a 6s+, IOS 11 and get nothing like that. I’ve found, though, that PvZ2 and YouTube, if both left running in the background, will try to eat the battery. I kill both when I’m done using them.

      Just podcast app. Nothing else open or running in background. No phone calls, downloads, etc etc.

    Any news on DrainGate?

    My 6s Plus lost 98% in 1:50 during a walk with podcasts.

    With three reboots ( to get back battery %) I managed to just barely make a 3:15 walk.

    I used to only use around 30 to 40%.
