Is the YouTube app draining battery life on your iOS 11 device?

If you've noticed shorter battery life and more battery drain on your iOS 11 device, the YouTube app could be the culprit. 

9to5Mac observed that there are numerous reports to the YouTube customer support account on Twitter about battery drain on iOS 11. It appears that the YouTube app has some bugs on iOS 11, which causes the device to become very warm when watching videos or have battery drain due to background activity. 

YouTube is "actively working to fix this". In the meantime, iOS 11 users may want to uninstall the YouTube app if they are concerned about the impact on battery life and access the mobile YouTube site via Safari.
