Over the weekend I noticed my phone battery was draining much much faster than usual despite not using the device as much. I haven't updated the iOS in over a month (currently on 11.1.2) and haven't updated or installed any apps in over a week. Usage has been the same if not less than usual.

 

Normally, I'd leave it off the charger overnight and it would lose about 5-10%. Only now it would lose about 50% or more overnight. Normally, I can get through a whole day and use 50-60% without any additional charging. Now, I've barely gotten through half a day and down to 30%.

 

Performance wise, my phone hasn't slowed down. I can use the apps without any noticeable lagging. What the flip is wrong with my phone?!

Go into settings and select 'battery'. This will show you battery usage by app.

 

If there is a particular app draining your battery then this will make it obvious. Otherwise if the distribution of battery usage across apps is roughly proportional to your use of those apps then you may have a faulty battery.
