How to find which apps are draining the battery on an iOS device in iOS 10?

Previously in iOS 8 you could go to Settings > Battery to see a list of apps with a percentage number for rating how much battery they were responsible for using, as shown in this posting. Gone in iOS 10.

I found the Question How to check what causes iPhone battery to drain out?. But that Question and its Answers do not really describe how to identify particular problematic apps.

Be patient

That list of apps with percentages may not appear immediately.

You may need to actively use your device for as much as an hour before that list will appear. During that time you will see a message explaining that it may take “a few minutes” of usage. In my experience, that is an underestimate.

  • Also note that those figures represent the power usage during the indicated period (24 hours or 7 days), so if your usage in that time was unusual then the figures will be misleading.
