I have a ipad 3g that i cannot seem to find reference to in this forum so it have been grateful for any assistance that can be provided. Despite switching off all push notifications in areas of strong cell coverage the battery charge on my ipad 3g drops at an alarming rate whilst in standby mode 6% per hour. I have reset the device and conditioned the batter all to no avail 7% battery drain per hour limits the mobility of the device.
IPad Air 2 :: High Battery Drain In Standby And Airplane Mode
Dec 11, 2014
5 weeks ago I've got my new iPad Air 2. It's the 128GB WiFi+Cellular version but no SIM card installed yet (I told Siri to turn off mobile data). iOS 8.1.2 already installed. First everything seems fine until I saw how much the battery drains while I'm not using the ipad.
I have disabled almost everything I've found as possible solutions to avoid battery drain with iOS 8...
- Bluetooth off - mobile data off - Brightness almost completely left (15-20%) - auto brightness off - automatic app updates off - background updates off - location services only enabled for find my iPad - all iCloud services disabled ecxept iCloud backup, keychain, reminders, calendar, find my iphone
Installed apps (additionally to the default Apple Apps): GMail, Youtube, Facebook, Amazon, ebay, dropbox, TV Sideview, brother iPrint&scan. Push notifications only enabled for GMail, ebay and facebook and the default Apple Apps Reminders, Calendar, Messages (iMessage on or off is no difference to battery behaviour), Facetime.
I'm using the iPad mostly for surfing the web using Safari. So this is the app with high battery usage, which can be found in the settings.
I can barely reach 6-8 hours of usage and 1-2 days of standby until it runs out of battery and I have to charge it again.
Before I go to sleep or leaving home for work, I can either enable airplane mode or not, the battery will drain up to 20% (mostly 10%-18% in airplane mode within 7 or 10 hours). I've already set it up as a new ipad four times but there is no change.
I called Apple Care Support and send a diagnostics but this says the battery is fine. I could believe that and last week the iPad turns off by itself at 12% battery left. So I called Apple again and send the iPad to service center. UPS picked it up on Monday and sent it from Germany to Apple service center in Netherlands, where it arrived on Tuesday 11:30 and was already returned at 18:00 to Hermes. They restored it and found no errors but I think in this short time they could not check the battery behaviour accurately. So I received my original iPad back on Wednesday, turned on and left with 95% battery - all options enabled except bluetooth. I connected to my WiFi, logged in with my iCloud account and installed the apps mentioned above I turned of the mentioned settings and used the iPad until 58% (some short standby minutes) and turned WiFi off, turned airplane mode on and this morning, only 48% battery left.
I've noticed that the battery seems to drain (excessively) compared to other user experiences. Last night it drained 25% in sleep mode. I even turned WiFi off (no bluetooth etc) before going to bed to test it.
What Are The Apps Or Services That Could Drain Battery In Sleep Mode
Jun 10, 2012
I rarely shut down my iPad 3: I leave it in sleep mode for many hours, often for many days. In my case, the battery drain during sleep is minimal (4G and location services are disabled) but I have some doubts: Could the iPad wake up from sleep without my intervention, for example because of a notification? Is the wi-fi active in sleep mode What are the apps or services that could drain battery in sleep mode? Is it safe to leave the iPad (in sleep mode) into a shut tight sleeve case? I fear it could somehow get warm also in sleep mode.
I was using my iPad very neatly... Suddenly, it refused to work again!
I just pressed the iPad button to go in standby, and after 5 minutes I switched it back on.... but it didn't work!I tried to connect it to the PC using iTunes.... it is not even shown on the iTunes .What happened? Probably, it's damaged
One of the challenges is that I'm currently in Germany, not in USA, where I bought it from. Another challenge is... TIME
The alarm is not automatically set to go off on standby mode like the preinstalled iPad calendar... Is it possible to adjust the settings to allow for this feature to work with the Pocket Information HD?
Doesn't Re-connect To Internet After Standby Mode / Pop Up Saying Connecting
Apr 7, 2010
I'm one of the people that is having the stand-by/wake-up issue. When the iPad goes into a standby mode, it will not re-connect to the internet. It still shows maximum signal strength, but I cannot connect to the 'net (and not even to my router's internal website).
Three times now (out of hundreds), when I wake it up from standby, I've seen a small dialog window pop up with the word "Connecting" in it.
My question is (for people who having working and non-working iPads): Do you see this every time? It's a small window in the middle of the screen that only has "Connecting" in it. It goes away very quickly. It doesn't seem to help, but I'm curious if others see it.
General :: Music App Stops When IPad Goes Into Standby Mode
Jun 24, 2013
I have an application that allows. Me listen to music, i downladed it from the store, but when my ipad goes into standby mode it stops. I mean when the light on my iPad goes off, the application stops .
I've had my iPad for just over a month now, and so far it's been great. Over the past couple of days, I've noticed that my iPad is losing battery while I leave it in standby on my desk. While I sleep, the iPad loses between 4-7% of the battery. It can't be anyone else in the house because I've got a password lock on it and no one would really be interested anyway. As far as I can tell, there's no major problem while I'm using the iPad, but I'm going to try a video test this weekend. Does this happen to anyone else? Any tips on what I do? Oh and I keep the iPad connected to wifi, and it receives push notifications every now and then.
I got the iPad on launch day and like everybody else was wowed by it's battery life. I now find that I'm losing 15-20% a day overnight even when it isn't in use. The battery during use still seems very good, but I'm now finding that I only get 3-4 days between charges vs. 7-10 days when I first got it despite no difference in usage. Is anybody else seeing this?
I'm not sure if this is normal, but my iPad when plugged in using the supplied charger will only charge to 97%? Also my battery is draining really quickly, my iPad was charge up over night, it's not been used all day but already down to 65%, is that right?
Standby Battery - Drop 10 Percent When Not In Use?
Mar 29, 2011
This morning my iPad 2 battery was at 47% or so, I closed the smart cover, putting the iPad to sleep. When I got home 9 hours later the battery was at 37%. Do I need to fully shut down running apps (double tap home key)? It just seems that I shouldn't lose 10% when it's not in use and the smart cover is shut.
IPad 3 :: Battery (even In Standby) - Shutting Off Processes?
Jun 11, 2012
I have the new iPad (3) and a number of processes keep running in the background even though I have "deleted" them in the multi-task pane, i.e., I have double clicked the circle, held down each app and then hit the red dash so that no apps are running in the background. For example, I keep getting notifications that apps need to be updated which means my iPad is checking with the app store - this is happening even though my notification center is empty. I also have a battery app that tells me 30+ processes are running even though I have no open apps. I understand that some processes must always run, but I would like to disable the unnecessary ones b/c I continue to have terrible battery performance, even in standby mode. As for standby battery performance, the strange thing is that sometimes my battery doesn't drain in standby at all and then other times it drains over 10% over one night. Each time there are no apps running in the background and I have no idea what is causing the inconsistent behavior, but I can only assume there must some process issue.
I noticed that if I have VPN on and not do anything on the iPad ( even sleep mode ), the battery drains down to low levels within 10 hours or so. I have noticed the same on the 3GS as well. Is this something well known or expected? or I should contact iPad tech support?
