I have got a iphone 6s on a monthly contract through EE but what I am finding annoying at the minute with this mobile it's that it always needs charging all the time, even when I am not using it, the battery goes down quite a lot, does anyone know any tips on how to reduce the battery going down faster then normal? It's not the mobile as it's new, I only took it out last August on a 24 month contract. 

Any advice would be great, thank you :)

    The comments I post are my personal opinion. While I try to check everything is correct before posting, I can and do make mistakes, so always check official information sources before relying on my posts.

    A new iPhone 6s? It's at least 4 years old as it was released in 2015.
    What does the Battery Health say?

    You are not very specific about how long the battery lasts.
    With  normal everyday I usually get over 24 hours out of my mobile but with the extra usage while on furlough I am lucky to get 5-6 hours .
    As it is an old design it doesnt have a  very big battery 
     ( 1800mAh? Not 100%sure ) whereas as a lot of new phones are now fitted with 4000mAh batteries  or larger ?

    This is an old phone and the small battery (Li-Ion 1715 mAh)  may be on the way out

    Hi, I have checked the battery and it states: 94% Maximum Capacity.

    my wife's iphone 6s was showing around 85% battery health and with quite low usage still needed charging twice a day. we had a new battery fitted (at a non Apple store) and it now comfortably gets her thru a 24 hour period. Think it cost around £25 fitted.
