Hi Barry & Rod, "When you first update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 10, your device is going to take a serious hit where battery life is concerned. But just calm down and take a deep breath, because this isn’t actually a problem at all. In fact, many users will ultimately see better battery life with iOS 10 than they had using iOS 9 thanks to various optimizations. Here’s what’s going on: when you first install a major iOS update, two things happen that have a negative impact on battery life. First, you use your iPhone or iPad much more than you do normally because you want to check out all the new features. Above average usage obviously leads to above average battery drain.
Beyond that, your device will need to re-index a huge amount of data when you first install iOS 10, such as contacts, photos and more. Pretty much anything that is searchable with Spotlight will need to be re-indexed. It all takes place in the background so many people are unaware that it’s even happening, but it does have an impact on battery life and it can take quite a bit of time for the process to complete. So don’t worry about it. The battery life on your iPhone or iPad might seem shorter at first but after a few days, you’ll be back to normal. In fact, you should notice a increase in battery life in iOS 10."
