    We can see in the last 24 hours that we have several games up here, and "Inbox". "Home & Lock Screen" has used 7%, "Messenger" has used 10%, "Instagram" has used 6%, and "Messages" has used 5%.

    "Stocks", which was never even opened, has used some of the battery percentage. While that is just 1% of our battery life, that's still fairly significant.

    Over the last 7 days, it also shows that I have used quite a bit of power on "Safari", which is interesting as it is rarely used.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    "Skype" has used quite a bit of battery power, again, something that's rarely used. "Stocks" has used up battery power, the "App Store", "Notes", "Translate", all these things have used battery power and all of them aren't things that I could turn off or reduce.

    This gives us a very accurate idea of what's been happening within our phone and what's going on with the applications. It lets us see where our battery life has been used up, and it's one of the better ways to fix our battery life or any battery life problems with the iPhone 6.
