Is it just me or does AR drain your battery? After an hour or two I notice my battery % has dropped considerably. Would it be the number of layers being used or should I always close any open apps or sites I have been searching? just curious , if it is the open sites working in the background then I guess closing them is a must do before using AR.

For iOS, fully closing open apps won’t save you battery power.
When iOS apps aren’t actively being used they are put into a “frozen” state.
