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:

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

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

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...
