    Default iOS 7 and battery life

    It feels like my battery life is shorter on 7, but I wanted to hear from everyone else. Please post your battery life, so we can compare.

    Even though it feels like it is worse, however the figures look good up to now. I did though let it die after installing ios7 before charging it.iOS 7 and battery life-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1379808869.224077.jpg

    Still testing the battery out. Went down to 88% from 100 in a couple hours and all I had done was text for 5 minutes. Don't know if that's average or if it's draining too fast?

    I'm having the same issues and I have literally everything turned off. 3d effect, email set to manual, background data off, screen to 20% in dark and yet I'm getting only about 5-5.30 hours out of the battery while being on wifi all day

    it's hard to say. everyone's "mileage varies", however if it feels like something is not right then you may want to investigate

    it SEEMS like you should be getting better battery performance but everyone's usage varies

    having to shut off features is ruining the iPhone experience IMHO. i would recommend trying what i mentioned above. then leave everything ON that you want/need to use. it may take a couple of battery cycles but you should see a difference over time

    I had a serious battery drain issue. Settings - General - Reset - Reset all settings fixed it.

    So far I'm pretty happy with the battery life I'm getting. I have some things turned on in iOS 7 that I didn't use in iOS 6 (weather location for instance) and with each new iOS upgrade I do, I keep a log of battery stats so I can get a feel for the pattern usage my phone will "allow" so to speak. What I've been seeing with iOS7 is very similar to what I saw with iOS 6.

    This ss is from the very next day (Friday)of being charged up right after loading iOS 7 Thurs night. This works for me, and has been pretty consistent depending on what I'm doing (if I'm using it more a particular day or less)

    Mine has actually gotten better since the update. I used to get home from work and be around 65% and now I'm up to about 77% with decent usage.

    Curious. Do you have enabled "Wi-Fi Networking" in settings? It's located in settings -> privacy -> system services. How does this affects battery? Can I disable this?

    You're not alone. It's been a crazy mess. I used to be able to wake up using my phone starting at 5am and not need to charge it until I went to bed later that night - like around 11 or so. And that was with constant use and never closing out applications AND with my young daughter playing with it all the time. So I filtered through all of the suggestions online, followed every instruction on how to reserve more battery life, and it's a little bit better, but still - I haven't used it at all today, it's just sitting here and is already drained down to 45% after only 8 hours - UNTOUCHED. I read somewhere about needing to do a "reset NOT from network", but I'll need to look that one up again and try it before I have to physically go into a store for assistance. By far, undoubtedly, the most useless and counterproductive update of any update ever in the history of updates. Just wanted to let you know, it's not just you, and it's not just a feeling that you're losing battery life faster, you actually are.

    I found that iOS 7 fried my battery. Make a long story short. Ever since I updated to iOS 7 my battery was worse. Called apple and the did a battery diagnostics and said they'll give me a replacement seeing as I was still under my one year warranty. Try that maybe.
