need to check what is causing battery issue or which apps are draining the
battery juice. So what you have to is, just navigate to the Settings, then

Location and the increased brightness
of the device drain the battery of the device so you need to keep an eye on
these settings. You can turn it off after the use from Settings => Privacy
=> Location Services.

on some selected apps and don’t want to turn on and off every time you want to
use then you can allow the use of the services to those apps by allowing “while
using the app” and turn off for other apps. This will help you to save the
battery. Some apps use the location services in the background and drain your
battery quickly. So we would recommend you to use the location service when you
need for apps like Apple Maps, Google Maps, or any other and after the use,
turn the service off.
