    Battery life is still bad. I would lose 20 - 30% overnight with all apps closed. Last night I turned off background refresh and I only lost 3%.

    I've never had this problem prior to 10.3 Beta.
    Odd, I only lost 2% over night without switching things "off" so to speak, I'm on WiFi, at home.While on 2 I would have lost about 20%.

    So this morning I had a little update bubble on my setting icon. It prompted me to add two factor authentication to my account(I did).

    Is this part of the beta or did that go out system wide?
    It's not part of the beta . It is just a reminder from apple to add two factor authentication. It is being sent to all the devices through a push notification

    Yeah I'm hit or miss with battery it seems so far. Some days it seems good, and other days it's like something is running rogue and I'll reboot to see if that helps.

    I was having a bit of lag on the last beta so glad to see this one seems better.

    Anyone else notice that in beta 2 do not disturb mode doesn't fully work?

    Despite my phone being put in do not disturb mode every night before bed instagram notifications still cause the screen to light which is a bit of a nuisance as it sits on a dock overnight meaning the room is lit!
    I had not been running a beta for the last 2 months until today, and in 10.2.1 I was having issues with DnD. Keyboard taps still made noise even though I toggled "Silence: Always" off and on several times, and some notifications (Facebook, Snapchat etc.) still made noise.

    Now with the new beta install (complete wipe and fresh install) today, there still keyboard click noises when the phone is in DnD, and Silence Always is set.

    My DnD does work since the last 2 beta updates.

    However auto correct while typing seems to not be working in the latest beta 4!

    Having gone straight from 10.2.1 to beta 10 4, huge huge difference in battery life.. it's horrible. Just a few minutes of texting and I lost 20% battery. This was a clean install, too.

    Well, you know that clean installs are always hard on battery as spotlight works in the background to index the phone. (Not saying that the beta is not hard on battery - I've decided to stay away from point upgrade betas myself - but this is well known about clean installs and even upgrades.)

    I'm not new to betas. I've never had battery drain like this on a fresh install with any of the betas I've tested. Some battery drain is obviously expected with a new setup, but this is crazy. I've only been texting and from the time I posted earlier to now I'm sitting at 57% with 2 hours of use, and I haven't been texting steadily. No Facebook or anything else since I'm typically in my office at home on my PC.

    I tried beta 1 and 2 on iPhone 6s Plus and found the battery life to be horrible. Upgraded to 7 plus and went to beta 4 yesterday and have noticed pretty good battery life. At least as good as 10.2. Wondering if you have a errant app or something else going on to be that far off. I've been on battery for 8 hours 10 minutes and 2 hours 10 minutes use at 90% battery still.
