    Ok. So I just finally downloaded public beta. I am on 4. And wow. Battery life is horrible. I literally just watch it go down every other minute. I did a hard reset and it jumped up 40%. Then it drops a % every 4 minutes. Why?? Will this get better?

    Hmm.. that's weird. My battery life has been stable and pretty good since PB3 on my 6S+

    What iPhone are you running this beta on?

    6s plus. It was weird. Every app I have on my phone was open in background. So I closed them all. Maybe that will help. I have it on low battery mode just to stop the bleeding. lol

    Maybe try a clean install?

    Or download an app called Battery Life to see what's going on.

    What do you mean by a clean install?

    He means restoring and then setting it up as a new device.

    It's actually much better now. I did a hard reset and closed out all apps in background. It's been good now. It was so weird after installing every app I had was open in background. But I think I'm good now. Thanks for your help

    It was probably one or two apps. Most apps sitting in multitasking are not running in the background.

    No issues with beta 4 on mine. Seems like you have an app gone bad causing the issues.

    No issues with power drain on my 6 or 6-Plus. Try both seem to have comparable battery life as the 9.3.4.

    With the exception of a few glitches, my overall battery life has been good. Those glitches tho! SMH!

    Man. It's happening again. Ever since PB7 I am getting massive battery drains sporadically. Like going from 80 to 45 in 1 hour.

    Same here. It does great for a while then all of a sudden it tanks.
