Bad Waze! Bad!

I don’t know if anyone else uses Waze or not, but I do. A lot.

Lately, my iPhone has been eating battery. All because of Waze. Location services would remain on, all the time, even if I put the app to sleep, or killed it entirely.

It took me a bit, but I finally found the setting that was causing the battery drain.

There’s a setting called “Location Reporting” that was triggering the drain. I don’t know if this is a new setting, or one of those that was triggered to “on” in a recent update. But it was on, and I know I didn’t set it that way.

Location Reporting eats juice.
Location Reporting eats juice.

If you turn it off the battery drain stops, as it disables location services being on constantly when the app is not in use.

I’m just putting this out there in case anyone else is having the same issue.

Until next time...
Erik
