    Apple said we should expect an hour of more battery, but so far my 6 has been awful. It drops down to around 20% when the lowest it used to go at the end of the day was 70%

    Can you show the battery use log? It would be interesting to compare your experience with others. Are you sure the drain isn't coming from a rogue app?

    I have a brand new 6 Plus and the battery life on iOS8 was great. After owning it for 2-3 days I put iOS9.0 on it and the battery life was terrible. I took a friend's advice and downloaded the 9.1 public beta and turned on low power mode. So far so good. Sadly i'm afraid to turn low power mode off, but i'm sure I will eventually.

    While I cannot provide detailed insight on non-low power mode on 9.1 I can say that 9.0 was really killing me. I looked at the battery usage and the only thing I could see that really used up battery life was my DirecTV app, but I hadn't even used it that much.

    Oh more detail. This is a 128GB 6 Plus and I set it up as new.

    On my 6 plus I haven't noticed any difference in battery life since going to iOS 9. Maybe a small improvement? But definitely not worse

    I have found that iOS 9 shows me a more correct statistic of how much usage I am getting than iOS 8 did. That may be the case for many here as well.

    Battery life (iPhone 6) has been good for both iOS 8 and 9. But as mentioned, I get a more detailed view on what apps are using the battery, both on screen and background.

    Battery life hasn't really changed but I can't help but laugh and be pissed at all the rumors going around saying that Apple optimized iOS9 for older hardware. My 6 doesn't run a bit better and now has some lag during certain animations. Where did these people even hear this crap from? At best, iOS 9 should've been called 8.5.

    I have noticed that at idle, the drain is significantly less than iOS8 when in use, it's no different.

    Battery life for my 6+ has been downright god-awful. Prior to 8.4.1 I could get a full day of use and end the day with 20% or more when plugging in the charger before bed.

    I installed iOS9 immediately upon public release, hoping there would be improvements, but battery life has been even worse. 9.0.1 has been pitiful as well. My phone has been on for four hours and with moderate use I'm down to 61%. This is sooooo not right compared to the battery life & performance I was getting before.

    My battery life on my iPhone 6 with iOS 9.0 was as good as with iOS 8.4.1.
    My iPad Air 2 appears to be eating the battery much quicker with iOS 9.0.1 but I noticed
    though some strange operation of the battery indicator this AM. So I'm thinking the
    battery sensor (or what ever determines the battery level) may need to be re-calibrated.

    So far my iPhone 6S seems to have very good battery life.

    My battery life has improved but my phone got some lagg on some places. For example when I open my dialer it freeze for a micro second. Hope they will fix that in 9.1
