    If you go to Settings>Battery, you'll be able to see if any apps running in the background were using an inordinate amount of battery power.

    Let us know if the update makes any difference.

    Yes I will.

    PS,
    do you think a soft re-set, ie pressing Home & Power buttons for 10 secs will help?
    do you think turning off "Background apps refresh" will help?
    do you think turning off "locations services" will help?

    all things at the back of my mind.

    Do you have a Smart Cover on the iPad ? Make sure it's closing properly and not triggering the sleep wake function on your iPad.

    No just an ordinary cover thanks, but..........

    Has the iPhone's latest update broken your device?

    this is causing me concern now.

    A hard reset may help. Going through those Apps using Location Services and switching Location Services off for those that don't need it or not necessarily all the time might help. Shuttng down Apps running in the background won't help, but switching off Background Refresh will.

    Also check your brightness setting.

    Agreed. Running the screen at full brightness will greatly decrease battery life.
