Have been having terrible trouble with my iphone battery usage stats. Have done hard resets of the phone, fresh installs, deleted apps, calibrated the battery and every other possible tweak but to no avail. The standby time was always creeping up. For e.g. id put the phone on airplane mode and leave it sit for an 10 mins and it would show an increase in the usage time of about 4 mins of that 10 minutes. Over the weekend, i have finally just realized that it is the apple watch causing the hassle. I have minimal 3rd party apps on the watch and have the bluetooth connection active. Here's the thing though, when i turn off the bluetooth connection the phone does enter standby as it was designed to do. When i turn on bluetooth and reconnect to the watch again the phone will not enter standby mode and continues to show usage time when it is in standby (and the watch is not being actively used). Have others noticed this? Any solutions to this or am I just being overly sensitive? It does mean that my iPhone battery usage is not accurate. Perhaps its the heart rate monitor reporting every 10 minutes? I have twitter set to notify me on the watch as well as calls and texts, but little more. The watch is ios 2 and the iPhone is ios 9.1/. Sorry for long post. Decided to put this here instead of the apple watch forum as its mainly an iPhone issue. Thanks all.
