    I am running on a brand new iPhone 4, just seeing how things run on iOS 7 as it will be the last major iOS update for its lifecycle and I am really impressed. I have not tried it on an iPhone 5 yet, but with everything constantly running, streaming movies in the background, and consistent intense games playing all day(from about 7-10), I only barely reach 30%, and that is when I TRY to kill the battery. It is literally impossible. I guess I am just one of the lucky beta testers, but I think Apple has done a great job this time around with its many reforms. Looking forward to future iOS 7 beta updates/initial release!

    Bought an iphone 5 from ebay that had ios 7 beta 6 on it. Battery drained to 5% in less than 24 hours while setting (I didn't touch the iphone) I thought the battery was just old. I decided to restore it to ios 6.1.4 and the battery life has improved tremendously. I've been using it steadily for 3 days...playing music, surfing the web...etc and the iphone is still above 50% on the charge. I think I'll stick with ios 6 for now

    I get all day usage out of mine, after my 8 hrs my phone still has roughly 60%. I check email, surf some web, and send some texts throughout the day. I'm running iOS beta 6

    Bad enough i bought the 4s 3 weeks before the five came out, cost me $99 and now today through rogers the phone is free with the 2 year contract (will be fighting with roders tonight lucky me, usually have to pour a stiff drink and ready myself for a 4 hour phone conversation "argument", with rodgers its a given). Downloaded the ios7 last night, charged baterry right after to 100% it is now 11:30 in the morning my baterry life is now 58% and i have done squat to it but answer one text this morning??? so by tonight i pretty sure ill be charging it again....big big big mistake.... i went from a 4 to 5 days on battery to go down to less than 24hrs.... ask me how impressed i am.........

    Nope...with every release, even if it was a x.x/x.x.x version, new threads cropped up about worsening battery life.

    I used to only have to charge my iPhone 5 every 2 days. Now I have to charge it every night before I go to bed. I have also noticed that since updating to IOS 7, that my cellular signal is much weaker. I used to get 4 bars, now I get 3 dots.

    Here's my battery life with ios 7 not sure this is good at all. It dropped about 4% just idling overnight, not sure if that's normal.... Let me know though based on what you guys see. This is also with literally everything off.

    WHY doesn't Apple make the iPhone with a replaceable battery, anyway?
