How To Check Battery Usage on your iPhone or iPad

Have you wondered what is eating away at your battery? It happens to many of us all the time. We’re sitting around using the device, and then, we get a “your battery is low” popup reminder that spoils the fun of whatever it is that we’re doing. Learning how to check battery usage on your iPhone or iPad is as simple as a few steps.

First, to learn how to check battery usage on your iPad, select “settings” on the main menu. Once inside, go to the section that says “battery” (and has a battery icon), then look to the right of the section and you’ll see “battery usage.”
