    The first screenshot was taken this morning at 9:28. I took it off of the charger last night after I finished putting my homescreens and apps like I wanted them. As you can see, my iPhone 5 has excellent standby time with iOS 7. The second screenshot was taking after viewing your post. I haven't used it much today because I've been on my MacBook and iPad Mini for most of the day, but the battery life is still excellent.

    That is just...terrible. I also did a clean wipe and set up as new and though it's not like that, after about 2 hours usage low brightness, location limited and app background stuff off, i'm down to about 60%

    I have had to put on charger 3 times on a 8 hour work shift. With emails and text, would say medium usage. iOS 7 Beta 6 had better battery life for me.

    This is screen shot of iOS 7 beta 6 same one I posted under dev beta topic.

    This is mine. I never really monitored battery life on iOS 6, so I don't know if this is good or not.

    You may also try some of the tips in this article.

    That's pretty much what I get as well now. iOS 7 has shaved off about 3-4 hours of usage time for me =/
    I am also charging my phone more than once per day now =(

    mine was awful until I did a full restore and then cycled the battery a few time. Now it is on par with what I got on iOS 6, which was about 8 hours usage every day. I charge nightly regardless of battery percentage.

    iOS 7 battery life iPhone 5-batt.png

    Mess. Mostly wifi browsing and maybe 5 minutes of Cut the Rope. That with Bluetooth OFF along with LTE, Auto Updates, Background Refresh, "System Services" under location and Parallax. I've tried resetting all settings. Any tips?

    I have done a full restore over weekend without iCloud backup. Seems better getting 7-8 hours of usage. Before I was only getting 4-6 hours.

    I do about 10 emails/ iMessages. Surf with tapatalk and check my social medias on lunch break. Also a 20 minute FaceTime call to my little girl on LTE.

    Those results are a fresh restore on Friday and charge cycles on weekend. Like I said above.

    If you go by usage and not standby it's bad. They claim you should get 6-8 hours of usage.

    I have had my iPhone5 running ios7 shut down twice when the battery show around 30% battery. Tried to turn it back on and the screen show zero charge and plug in to a power supply, when I plug it in the phone restarts and then the Battery shows 30% battery again.
    Is this a bug that the battery is low and the % is out of calibration?

    Iphone5 iOS 7 done ota. Here's two screenshots - first one from a few days ago... And one from this morning. I haven't plugged the phone in since unplugging it yesterday morning.
    The first few days it seemed like the battery drained really fast.
