Already deleted the AirTag and reinstalled it, no difference. I’ve even reinstalled it via the iPad versus my iPhone and it made no difference. There are several accounts of the same thing happening to other users, sometimes it’s their iPhone, sometimes iPad, sometimes both. The online speculation is the iPad or iPhone is constantly pinging the AirTag when they are close in range, as most of the drain occurs overnight when my keys are 6m or so away. Over the last 10 days, Find My has used 50% of my iPads battery life all via “background activity”. A couple of Apple techs have taken logs and screenshots from my iPad to have the engineers take a look at the activity. Hopefully that’s what’s in this update.Well a battery drained iPad isn’t all that functional: a choice until the glitch is resolved one way or another. Is there a theory why an Airtsg via FindMy is draining the battery? Is that whet your battery usage in settings points to?Heck my Plan A might be the usual, disconnect the tag then reconnect it….
I purchased a decent high charge Qi charger at Target and set it up in our kitchen. My wife and I love just dropping our iPhones or the new AirPods on it for a decent charge when it’s handy. It was ~$40, so not a big ticket item, but convenient when we need a charge after work. I’m disappointed Apple cancelled the AirPower mat, but not disheartened.
