    Default Battery life on iPhone 5

    How's your batt life with iOS7 GM on iPhone 5????

    I installed it today, installed all app from scratch, checked background app settings and other settings, and it seams that OS is eating through my battery constantly. Within an hour of standby (phone not used, received few notifications) it lost 3% of battery. When in use online (email, facebook, tapatalk) I went through 7% of battery in 15 mins.

    Is it something common? Or my system hasn't "settled down" properly yet. Anything you'd suggest to do to help it?

    So far so good. I took my iPhone 5 off the charger about an hour ago before driving my daughter to school and I am still at 100%. Granted, I haven't done much with it yet except read and reply to a few posts, read a couple of email messages and sent a few article from my RSS feed to Instapaper to be read later.

    I've been running the GM since yesterday and I have to say that my battery life has been pretty terrific so far 👍👍👍

    Could it be that the OS was doing a spotlight indexing?

    I suppose, but I recommend you go through each setting on your device and make sure everything is to your liking.

    average battery life I guess. Charged it before bed last night and it lasted me about 6 hours at school mostly on LTE, using facebook, instagram, four square check ins, twitter, weather, email, texting. Then used it at the gym for music about an hour 30mins. I restored it from my IOS 6 backup, didnt wanna start new and lose everything.

    Sync or resync w/iTunes to clear out syncing errors especially if you use iTunes Match

    With the Gold Master I installed the ipsw as new (well, restore rather than update), then restored from iCloud.

    Wanted to clear out any bugs from the beta.

    My battery life is great.

    I did notice the battery life on my iPad 2 became terrible (-20%/hr), but realized I'd re-installed the Podcasts app and it had filled up the free space. Once I freed up 2-3 gigs, battery life became good again.

    So check your free space, maybe?
