Question: Battery draining rapidly

I have an iPhone 7+ and ever since I did the iOS update to 11, and the subsequent updates, my battery has been draining much faster than normal. With normal use, my battery used to last the whole day, now, it's drains to less than 10% by noon. Is there a glitch causing battery issues with these updates? I've read the battery maximization articles and a few others but none of those seem applicable in this case. Help!

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11.1

Hi mkawar1,

Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. If you are having issues with the battery life on your iPhone after a recent update, you may find the information and troubleshooting steps outlined in the following article helpful. I believe this may be the same article you were referring to, but in particular for your case, you may want to check to see if any specific app or service is consuming an unusual amount of battery time (under View Battery Usage):
