    Nah, it's just an annoyance, not worth risking a trip to the mall during a pandemic. iPads are fun, but ultimately just first-world toys.

    Could always take it to a repair shop (Experimax, UBREAKIFIX, etc). We do batteries at my repair shop for $99 for the iPad Pro 9.7. Could be worth a shot. Definitely cheaper than replacing the unit.

    I'm still getting 8 hours of use on a charge, so I don't think the battery is ready for replacement yet. Look at the Battery screenshots: they just don't make sense.

    It’s probably some background system service then. Those don’t show on the Battery settings screen.

    I believe you started this thread before the current update, so I can’t blame it on the usual surge of background activity right after the update, but there are background task that can use up battery; auto app updates, iCloud backups, search indexing, etc. Normally the device waits until it’s on a charger to do the heavy lifting, but there are probably exceptions.
