change your iP6 battery. DJI Go uses quite a bit of processing power but not THAT much.

change an  iP6 battery ? you can't change an i-phone 6 battery ! You trying to tell me an i-phone 6s + batter wont last any longer than 10 miniutes using the app with the drone ?

I use a 6S plus at times (if I want GPS) and I don't seem to remember it being quite that bad. You could check and see what is draining the battery. Go to iPhone settings (cog wheel), scroll down and click on 'battery'. This should then list a percentage of the battery used by each App'.
Reason I asked initially is that there were improvements made in power usage in one of the earlier versions of DJI Go.

How old is your phone, have a look at this :-

EDIT:- 20 minutes DJI running and streaming video from aircraft has used about 5% of my battery (6s plus).

Seems the 6 and 6+ have battery sensor errors still. Mine went from 98% to 1% in 20 mins (on screen) but after disconnecting from the Phantom bounced back up to 50%. then up to 65% as soon as plugged in. Seems to be far worse when it's cold

This is a user forum, I'm just a punter like you. I've pointed you towards an Apple recall which may or may not affect your device, but it is certainly something to consider.
You could always take it to your Apple store for a check.

Other than that if you're sure there's nothing else running in the Background

you could try uninstalling DJI Go and do a fresh install.

Aardvark - mine usually uses a bit more than that, but I turn the brightness up full when flying.
My battery went to 1% on a 20 min flight but it was 4C outside, maybe I'll stick a hand warmer on the back next time!

I  friend I believe that the best solution for you and your drone is that you have to change your mobile
or risolve battery trouble.
The remote controller  doesnt user your power mobile.
If you use a tablet,could  be better..{:4_177:}{:4_177:}

One of these is the answer to all our problems it's a portable battery that you can plug your phone in  it charges your phone whilst you're using it, after a full 20 minutes of flight and going live on Facebook my phone had only used 2% of a full charge at 98%❗️

I use a power bank for my 7" tablet, it is just a cheap (£4 or £5) 4000mAH unit from B&M stores in the UK. It is about the same size as a iPhone 4. So far it is only topping off the charge lost on my tablet, which has been minuscule. Tablet is an Argos bought Alba 7 Inch 16GB Wi-Fi Tablet that runs nothing but DJI Go.
