    it's in your head. 7.0.4 to 7.0.6 won't increase your battery time unless maybe if you did a clean install.

    There shouldn't be a difference. But good for you if it improves.

    This has nothing to do with the update, it's simply how you've used your 'phone.

    In all fairness mine has always been good, even from 7.0.1 when i got my 5s. Each upgrade has neither improved that or made it any worse.

    3 days? Do you partially charge your phone throughout the day?

    How is 2 days on a single charge bad? The only way I see you getting more is to leave the phone completely idle.

    Then it would say "phone was plugged in since last charge."

    No, it wouldn't say time since last full charge if he was.

    Actually I think my battery life is worse with 7.0.6 than it was with 7.0.4.

    I use my phone about the same amount every day, and with the .6 update it is definitely harder on the battery.

    I don't notice any difference, my battery life has always been solid.

    No, i don't. Single charge each time and i run it to under 20% remaining before charging. Once i month i let the battery completely run out. Everything apart from App refresh and blue tooth is on. It was a major surprise after my 4s.

    I just updated to 7.0.6 last night and used my phone all day and just went to 1% so I am charging now so I'm curious to see how my battery life will be compared to iOS6 which I always got great battery life on.

    This definitely means iPhones are not made the same way. Hardware could be bad or good.

    My battery on 7.0.6 is terrible (that's with no gaming or any intensive tasks). iPhone 5 - 11 months old

    i would have to second this. iPhone 5 launch day phone had amazing battery life up until 7.0.6. updated ota and have not changed how i use my phone in any way.

    after day one i chalked it up to my ocd or me just using it more but after a few days on the latest update i'm around 20% by the end of the day on a full charge when i was about 40%.

    Those usage and standby times seem just about average for iPhone 5.

    The worst battery I ever had was in my iPhone 5 - it was terrible.

    My current iPhone 5S has a good battery.

    I thrice this, my iPhone 5S has had extraordinary battery life until iOS 7.0.6. I'm using my phone the same way and my battery is significantly shorter, it also seems to get hot after using whatsapp for more than an hour, something that didn't happen before the update. Im debating on whether doing a DFU restore or waiting for iOS 7.1 and DFU restore then.

    I'm getting better battery life since 7.0.6
    Right with the update I stopped closing apps that run in the background (before the update I closed every single app) and before the update I had battery life maxed out around 6-6.5 hours (phone Schützling down by it's after couple minutes using with 1%). Yesterday I has 7 hours 10 minutes when I got the popup that I have 20% left.
    Usage is still the same. Settings (background refresh off, parallax on, location service only for needed apps and time zone under system settings).

    So I'm not sure if it's the update on my phone or the fact that I don't close apps anymore :D
