Apple Watch battery life: 8 power saving tips!

Apple has done everything they can to maximize battery life on the Apple Watch. Now here's what you can do!

They'll cost you some convenience and some fun, but they'll keep you going for as long as possible.

I used to wonder about that myself. Then I had the chance to speak to some people in the industry and discovered that batteries and battery life are, well... complicated.

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.
