    I'm close to about 45 days. I can't seem to get past 4pm without starting to worry about the battery.

    Any one else experiencing a short day with with phone? I'm thinking of going in to an Apple Store and switching out the phone.

    I unplug mine around 5am and go to about 6 or 7 pm with medium to heavy use all day and still at twenty five to thirty percent.

    Unplugged at roughly 9am this morn.

    Sitting at exactly 13% as I type this.

    Mostly music and a couple of YouTube videos today. Had the day off, so nothing to heavy.

    Now it's 12%.

    Something don't seem right, did you check your usage to see what apps are using battery.

    It's for thirty six pm and I'm at forty five percent still.

    Press power button on side and home button at the same time.

    Here is a shot of mine today. Six hours is a lot of usage with screen on.

    Who has used the iPhone 6 for at least 45 days?  Battery thoughts?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1417211959.679077.jpg

    So then, you think it's kinda normal to be where I am as far as usage is concerned?

    I just Google some battery tips and turned off the apps tgat are refreshing in the background.

    Still, I think I'll run into the Grand Central Station Apple store tomorrow and ask them to run a diagnostic on the battery if they're able to.

    That will definitely help turning them off and refresh manually.

    If you have time it couldn't hurt to have it checked out.

    That usage doesn't look terribly unusual to me. But it doesn't hurt to have it checked out either.

    Gracias! Thanks Karen.

    I'm coming from the HTC One And then the HTC One M8. I used to get through an entire day on a single charge.

    So maybe I've been a bad comparison.

    And my iPad would always last a day and a half on a single charge. Bigger battery I guess.

    Before the two HTCs I had the 4s and the battery wasn't the best.

    Thanks again guys.

    D would either of you have any idea why my iPhone is showing up as "Unknown Host" on my MacBook Air?

    My iPad shows up just fine.

    I have the 6+ and a Galaxy Note Edge and even as my Iphone as my daily driver.. The battery lasts all day and when I plug in at night I still have about 35%.. The GNE battery is dead by 3pm even though 90% of my time is spent on the Iphone

    Nope. My 6 plus gets 8 hours minimum usage on a really bad day of extreme usage playing games and stuff that really drains the battery.
    I get 10 hours usage regularly. Sometime 12 hours on my 6plus

    I take it off the charger at around 9-10am daily and never have to worry about charging it until around 9pm. Sometimes 7pm if I'm using it super heavy. I usually bluetooth stream to my car every morning, browse flipboard, use safari, texting/whatsapp religiously, etc. But everyones usage is different so its hard to compare. I never complained once about my battery life and I consider myself a heavy user most times.

    If your usage is really heavy, there's nothing you can do about the battery life.... I get 4 hours on screen time some days and 10 to 12 on very long days so it depends...

    Any one else experiencing a short day with with phone? I'm thinking of going in to an Apple Store and switching out the phone.
    If you A. Are a heavy user, or B. do not have a good signal, the iPhone won't last all day. When you place thinness over larger battery which apple does, battery life will not be that steller. They should have made it 2mm thicker, added a larger battery and it would have eliminated the camera sticking out while also giving much better battery.

    Even on a bigger capacity phone that usually lasts me a day and a half on 4 hour usage like the Oneplus One, I can barely reach half a day if I am pumping my screen continuous videos...so I don't really think the iPhone 6 or 6 plus is ever bad in battery but it all depends on what you use the phone for.

    Some lock-screen widgets would also be cool.

    I became obsessed with Blinkfeed.

    Battery is fantastic for me. Usage varies from day to day though, but I don't use it for more than 3 screen on hours a day. I usually end up with about 50-60% left by 10:00 PM after unplugging at 6:30 AM.

    Battery is wonderful on my 6+. Lasts all day with me being on it most of the time from 7am until around 11ish when I go to bed and still have 40% left. If I wasn't such a heavy user, I know it would last almost 2 days.
