    What are your battery experiences with iOS 12 compared with iOS 11?
    My iPad Pro is about the same.
    iPhone 7 seems to be slightly reduced capacity with try same configuration. Xs arrived Fri ay anyway.

    Thus far, mine has been pretty much the same as it was prior to the upgrade.

    Way too soon to tell for me. My phone has had it about a day, my iPad mini 4 about three hours.

    I’m paranoid to make the switch to 12. Once I do, I can’t go back. Discovered that on 5c today. Afraid to switch the SE over.

    Mine is pretty quick some days from 100-70ish then it slows down and goes back to normal or even better than normal. Took a good week to settle down on my 6 plus. May need to do a battery calibration because overall it doesn’t feel as good, but it did go 2 days of minimal use and still have 45% the other day. Guess that’s not too bad lol.

    Really? How long ago did you install it?

    I installed it on Monday. I still hope it could be because of some default settings but I turned off most of the refreshing background apps and it is worse then ios11. Not dramatically worse but worse.

    Very pleased to report that at 'update +48 hours' battery life appears to have stabilized at pretty much what it was on 11.4 ( which was good). I didn't do any 'knee-jerk fiddling' when in the early hours it seemed a bit down, but figured it was an indexing & settling out through the iOS & App spectrum. I have ( since 4S) always plugged in any and all devices overnight, -FORGET the old beliefs from pre li-ion days- and wherever / whenever a cord is handy. Other than my iPhone 6, which had chronic battery problems then a swollen battery ( demise of the device for me ) I have never had battery life problems in iOS....
    This comment reflects my updates to Pad Mini4, iPad Air2, iPhones 6Plus,7Plus,8Plus
