    Is anyone else experiencing a much faster rate for the battery draining after the January update?

    For me it seems about the same more or less at least after 1.5 days of usage so far.

    I was just thinking the same thing. Mine seems to be draining a little faster on the January update. Not to much, but it seems noticable. Maybe it's in my head?

    I'm not experiencing that I actually feel like it has gotten slightly better. Then again can be just my head playing tricks on me. I feel like it's a similar experience. We might just need to wait a few days to know for sure..

    I hate to do factory resets but I'm considering doing one because of how large this update was.. for now I'm holding off since I'm having a pretty good experience.

    I would definitely wait for a few charge cycles. Remember that right after the update, the phone will be optimizing all of the apps, which likely eats up some battery.

    I updated a few days ago (when it was first released) and just notice today that it seemed like the battery was draining a little faster. Could it need a little time to "learn"? Similar to when the phone is new and it progressively gets better battery life after a few days/charge cycles?

    I always hear about batteries taking a few days to "settle in," but I'm not sure what the technical explanation for that is. It might also have to do with the Adaptive Battery feature relearning patterns?

    Yeah adaptive battery relearning usage patterns

    Okay. I guess that makes sense. Just like a car from 20 years ago. After disconnecting the battery they'd run crappy until it relearned. I'll see how it goes over the next several days. Thanks!

    Yes exactly but even today's cars have to relearn idle strategies, emissions monitor etc..

    Yup. You're right. You don't seem to (at least I don't) notice a big effect on today's cars though when reset. I know the late 90's early 2000's jeeps we're horrible after reset! Lol

    Yeah with in 10 miles they learn pretty quick plus they have much much faster PCM


    Edit: don't want throw off topic

    But today's cars have Buss ,Cann communications network between modules on the vehicle that are fast

    You clearly know a lot more than me about vehicle electronic control systems. To stay on topic: hopefully the Pixel 6 Pro learns battery conservation quickly! Lol thanks again!

    Fastest way would be a factory reset plus clean out old catch but understand some don't want take that route.

    It my profession I do for living ,I troubleshoot diagnostic drive ability on vehicles.

    Agree, mine is definitely draining faster since Jan update. Never ran out of juice before but last two days, weekend days no less, I had to recharge pro shortly after 5pm. Hope it settles down soon.

    EDIT: Jan 25. Draining issue has stabilized and the P6P is back to its normal great self. Took longer than past updates to settle, thus my initial worry, but all good now, back to great battery life.

    Not at all uncommon, for even a seasoned phone, for battery life to be a little wonky for the first few cycles after an update. It'll settle down.

    For those of you who are seeing faster battery drain, it'd be interesting to see what your battery stats say -- not just installed apps, but also system apps/services.

    Mobile network dominates my system app battery usage. Not sure how it was before the January update.

    Mine is actually significantly better after the update. I was getting pretty bad battery life on the November patch.

    The battery will not drain any faster after the update. If you're leaving 5G/LTE, Bluetooth, or GPS on you will see a slightly higher discharge from your battery. If you have been using any battery monitoring app you could easily see that.

    I feel like the phone has been optimized further since the update.

    I agree. Before the update on an average day my phone battery would be around 35% when I wake up at 3 am. Now it is around 50-65%. I didn't change any settings from one update to the other.

    In the "old days" I used to call it battery conditioning.
