    Default Poll - How is the battery life of iOS 7 on your iPhone 5?

    if you're running iOS 7 on your iPhone, let us know how your battery life is.
    Considering its a Beta, the Battery isn't all that great for me, but its okay. Not that great though.

    It's not extremely bad, but it isn't good either... Somewhere in the middle. Waiting to see how it pans out. One thing though, it heats up like anything after short amount of usage... (like 5-15 minutes of usage)

    Mine is pretty bad. Not as bad at the first beta for iOS5 though. And yeah, the phone really heats up bad.

    Thankfully not that bad for me. But probably would fall down in 3-4 hours which is bad enough.

    And man! It takes long to charge back up!

    Anyone else having issues loading iMore forums? Most of my apps are working properly (as far as the ones that I've tried so far), but iMore Forums which crashes as it tries to load up...

    Yes, the battery drains pretty quickly at this point. Not unexpected for a first beta release... most of the features are in this build, but there is still a lot of tweaking and tuning to be done...

    Yeah, the iMore forum has been downright unresponsive at times... but then, we’ve taken on a whole crapload of trolls since the WWDC keynote, too... (only half-way kidding!)... something is going in. Once the page loads, it’s ok, but it takes forever to load pages since yesterday morning...

    Charged my phone overnight. 1 hour of Bluetooth streaming during the drive to work and then played with the phone 20-25 minutes and I was at almost 50% battery.

    Thankfully I'm never too far from a charger.

    1. It's beta
    2. Apps are not coded to work with iOS 7 at this time, so yes some may not work at all, or some may crash endlessly.
    3. It's beta
    4 It's beta
    5. Guess what... It's the first Beta of iOS 7, Let dev's do their work and Apple work out their kinks... because in the long run.... Right now it's BETA

    Thanks for pointing out the obvious! I'm aware that it's a Beta and not all apps would work right away or properly. Just wanted to check if others were experiencing the same behaviour with iMore forums on iOS 7.

    Looking forward to updates...

    Idle battery life is great. It lost 1% overnight(8 hours). When using it however, I can get 30 minutes out of 10% of the battery.

    No one is complaining. We're discussing. We're all well aware it's beta and that these things happen.

    Going to put it to the max today.... Will try to see if there is significant difference between leaving apps open or just shutting them down. Glad I have Mophie Case if all goes to hell I'll hit the switch

    i was having huge battery drain and heating issues until i turned off automatic download of apps and updates in Settings -> iTunes & App Stores. a few of my older versions of apps seemed to have hung in the INITIAL sync process after i 'restored' IOS 7, so i had to delete them and reinstall from the app store.

    Now with no apps install pending, it is running cool as a cucumber and not noticeable battery drain

    I have a huge drain too.

    Is there a way to find why? if it's network or process?

    While my battery has drained at a higher rate today, I had steady 2-3 dot signal where I previously maintained 1-2 bars fluctuating. Possible that the extra power is going for signal management like the BB Z10 has (if if poor signal area, it boosts output).

    Mine was at 18% after 6 hrs. Just under 2 hrs of use. Not good! Since the beta didn't have a working eBay app and the terrible battery I went back to 6.1.4. Really liked the update but I will wait till fall for the official.

    What difference does it make? You should only be installing iOS 7 to test your apps, not as your daily driver. At this point, battery is the least of the issues.

    Same here. Forgot to plug my phone in after install and was so shocked that my battery didn't budge. Good things can come of this.....hopefully
