Battery Life

iOS 7.1 battery life the same or worse than before say iMore readers

A week ago we ran a reader poll asking about your iOS 7.1 battery life, and we've had some interesting results. A full week after the update came out, we'd all had a decent amount of time to discharge and recharge our iPhone and iPad batteries and get a better feel for whether or not anything had changed. Battery life differs from person to person, and in our sampling it looks as if the bad press on the issue may have had some standing.

iPad Air battery life: How to fix problems and get the most bang from your battery!

The iPad Air may be smaller and much thinner than any full-sized iPad before it, but Apple still promises the same great battery life. That translates into up to 10 hours of web surfing or video watching on Wi-Fi, 9 hours on cellular (if you have a cellular model), and a whopping 24-hours as a personal hotspot. In other words, a lot. In our early tests - we've only had the iPad Air for a few days so far - it's predictably living up to those levels. However, if your iPad Air isn't getting the battery life you expected, if it's not matching the levels you got with your preview device, or simply not working the way it should, here's how to fix it - and how to get the most out of it!

Yup, iPad Air still gets insanely good 24-hours of battery life as Wi-Fi hotspot

One of the most remarkable things about the iPad is that its 10 hours of battery life as a tablet translates into 24 hours of battery life a Wi-Fi hotspot. With the screen on doing things, it lasts almost half a day. With the screen off simply feeding data to a tethered computer, it lasts a day with room to spare. Not surprisingly, the iPad Air, which despite being considerably thinner and lighter, enjoys the same 10 hours of tablet battery life, also enjoys the same 24 hours of tethered Wi-Fi hotspot battery life. And lest there be any doubt, Anand Lal Shimpi, has proved it. AnandTech:

How's your iOS 7.0.3 battery life? [Poll]

How's your iOS 7.0.3 battery life?

iOS 7.0.3 has been with us for almost a full week now, so it's about time we talked battery life. As is so often the way every time a new version of iOS drops, some people see improvements, some the exact opposite. As iOS 7 continues to update, we'd hope that the majority were in the first camp, but sadly it isn't the case. We've already discussed battery life on previous builds of iOS 7, so how does it compare now we're bumped up to 7.0.3?

How's your iOS 7 battery life? [Poll]

How's your iOS 7 battery life?

It's been one week since Apple released iOS 7 - read our complete iOS 7 review - and half-a-week since Apple launched the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c - and that means it's about time we asked you how your battery life is doing on new and old devices alike? Any time a new version of iOS comes out, or we get new devices in our hands, some people seem to get great battery life and others seem to get terrible battery life. This time, however, there seems to be a "breaking in" period. For many people the first day or two sees a huge decrease in battery life, and then things get better - sometimes much better. For others, things aren't getting better. Is the new operating system taxing older hardware? Are the new background processes consuming more power? Are we simply using all the new features more than we used the old ones?

We're already posted our iOS 7, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c battery life trouble shooting tips, but now we want to hear from you. No quality assurance process in the world beats 200 million people hammering away at your product, and no one knows just how good, or bad, iOS 7 battery life is than the people using it every day.

So tell us, how's your iOS 7 batter life? Vote in the poll up top and then tell us what device(s) your running it on and give us all the details in the comments below!
