Should having iOS Developer Mode set to On cause excessive battery drain?
I have been suffering from excessive battery drain on my iPhone SE3 while running BitDefender Mobile Security on iOS 17.1.1 with iOS Developer Mode set to 'On'. I appear to have solved my battery drain issue by setting Developer Mode to 'Off'. I develop iOS apps in Xcode and have been using Developer Mode for testing my apps and also for using them from day to day without having to buy them (from myself!) via the App Store. I have now bitten the bullet and bought one of my own apps (iNetWorth) from the App Store so that I can use it with Developer Mode set to 'Off'. Since setting Developer Mode to 'Off' I have had no issues with excessive battery drain. Is this expected behaviour by BitDefender Mobile Security? It's not a show stopping problem but it would be nice to be able to run BitDefender Mobile Security with Developer Mode set to 'On' and without an associated excessive drain on my battery.
