    So I know most of you are hating Apple right now, but after my update, my iPhone 5's battery life has been amazing. I'm one of the few that are happy with the update!

    iOS7 - 6-7 Hours
    iOS8 - 4 (yes 4) hours
    iOS8.0.1 - 9 (YES 9!!) hours

    I think of all the iPhones I have had, this is the longest the battery has lasted. :apple:

    Kind of hard to discuss seeing how the update was pulled and a lot of people weren't able to update, or have to downgrade due to problems.

    No need to discuss. Just stating numbers.

    It will suck your battery dry like an electric vampire.

    Hopefully the patch did, indeed, include battery improvements and those translate over to the 6/+ :cool:

    It's a little early to judge the battery life though

    Hmmm you might be right. 12 hours standby, 3 hours usage @ 70% on my 5s.

    Lucky.
    I wish I had 8.0.1 (even if it made my iPhone dysfunctional…)

    You have a 5?
    I think there are links for it still available.

    It seriously rocks on the 5.

    It breaks your cellular connection, battery life is amazing after that!

    I tried downloading it on a 5th generation iPod touch… Apple stopped signing, so having the firmware ready to go is, well. . . a no go.

    I had the opportunity to use my new 6+ in a full work day on Monday and I got around ~30% after my 8 hour day.
    Today I updated it in the morning and since the phone function was killed, I hadn't really use it besides some light music and some wifi usage throughout the day and I got around 80% ish after the shift....
    incredible 6+ battery...
