    Yes I did, but mainly when I was charging it against my laptop. I moved back to iOS 6.1.4 on my i5. Gonna install iOS 7 on my secondary device (i4)... (Yes I am aware that the beta is not supposed to be a daily driver)

    The battery life is good for me I get about 10hr to 15hr or constant use, but it also depends on how good your reception is on your mobile, I find it if you turn 4g off and also a few other thing in settings off, the battery seems to last,

    Had to charge phone 2x and Mophie Pack 2x in 12hrs. It was great at 1st... Going back to iOS 6 on primary device....oh well. Unlike others I knew I couldn't keep it primary... Will just play on secondary

    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.
    No need to be so snarky, geez.

    Maybe some people like to install it to test out the new UI, or maybe a developer can't afford a second device for testing (did you even think of that?). The point is, this is a thread discussing how the battery life is on iOS 7 beta 1, and it's not really anyone's business *why* anyone has it on their iPhone. You're not the iOS police.

    Snarky? She sounded like she was just telling the truth. And while Alli may not be the "iOS police", she carries a badge around iMore.

    The fact is, this is a TEST version of iOS 7, and is intended to be a starting point for developers to begin testing their apps in the new environment. It is NOT driver device ready, nor should anyone expect it to be at this point.

    Although I'm in agreement with your response, @park does have a point. It has been made perfectly clear here at iMore what "beta software" is and to whom iOS 7 Beta is intended for and its purpose. If non-developers opt to ignore the warnings and install it, it's their decision, their time, their risk and their loss if something goes wrong. In the meantime, let's attempt to answer any question we can....

    For reals. Someone said they are stating the obvious,... Well obviously it's Beta why even ask the question. Sounds like someone was bored and ASKED the obvious. "How many bugs does it have?" A ton!!! It's beta. "Does your iPhone keep closing the apps" yes, it's Beta! Lol like wow. That's when you find out who's a developer/user with a purpose, and someone who understands that the unlock on an iPhone is cooler now. Lol

    Yes, replying to someone's question with "What difference does it make?" is definitely snarky. The "badge" of a mod on a forum doesn't mean anything in this context, and definitely doesn't mean Alli gets to tell anyone what they *should* or *shouldn't* be doing with their iPhone.

    Look, everyone in this thread seems to understand that we're discussing the first beta of iOS 7, and no one has said they expect it to be ready for general release. If Alli was responding to someone who was complaining that beta 1 was not ready for prime time, then her comment would probably be warranted ... but that wasn't the case.

    So, what we have here is simply a difference of opinion.

    Perhaps more a difference in levels of tolerance.

    Some say, "All I needed to know, I learned in kindergarten". To those, quite simply, when they don't have anything helpful, relevant, or nice to say, they say nothing.

    Other less tolerant folks say that if they don't have anything nice, helpful, or useful to say, just yell at the person or question their intelligence.

    I'd say your moderator is of the latter persuasion. Having read through the thread, I see no cause to question anyone's understanding of what constitutes a Beta, for whom the software was intended, or even whether the battery drainage "should" occur. I have seen, to date, just a group of users sharing their results, and perhaps hoping that someone might have a magic answer that would spare the rest of us a few hours searching through the settings to find the one or two buttons that might turn off a background task (or several) that would deliver "normal" battery life under this version of the beta software.

    If this constitutes cause for being abused by one of your moderators, you may want to update your terms of use to include "random whippings for discussing what might be of distaste to a moderator in a bad mood."

    Just a thought. Please resume your regularly scheduled activities.

    If you consider having a post responded to with "What's the difference" as "abuse by one of [the] moderators", I think the term abuse needs to be redefined.

    Have been on it since release day. No issues. Battery is fine. Probably about 1-2% an hour worse. You just need to let it die to calibrate it. Other than that. No real bugs that keep me from using it just fine every day. My 2cents.

    I believe I am in the same boat, been using it as my daily driver since the day of release .... I can't find myself going back to 6.1 anytime soon.

    1. We need a new updated poll.

    2. I am the complete opposite with battery. Beta 1 very very bad on battery. Beta 2, so far it is holding it's own weight.

    Same here.

    With Beta 2, I'm at 91% right now with 1 HR 12 MIN usage and 5 HR 9MIN standby.

    Beta 1 would have been in the 70's already.
