Latest update devours battery life on iPad


Today I got a forced update of the Zwift app on my iPad. Right after that I took a training session for one hour.

After that the battery had gone from 100% to 46%. Before the update the same training session would make the battery go from 100% to maybe 80 or 70%.

What is going on?

I’ve noticed the same thing. For me it started maybe 2 or 3 updates ago. A 50 min workout used to use approx 1/3 battery but the same workout now drains my battery completely from a full charge (ie 3* the power usage as previous). I have to have additional wires around my setup to plug the iPad into the mains while using zwift now because of this.
