    I got my 5S on Sept 20 and was getting 8-9 hours of usage for the first couple of weeks and not it's down to 3.5-4 which is what I was getting on my 4yr old 4s before selling it. Any suggestions on what could be eating my battery life? I almost everything off except for a few push notifications, email is set to manual and screen brightness is between 20-30%

    Major updates always kill battery life. Unless the phone came with it, battery life sucks. Been my experience anyway.

    It's not too bad. I am bewildered as to how you were getting 8-9 hours of usage.

    I'm on a 5S, when I was on iOS 7 I couldn't get that. Maybe 6-7. It was a little better than my old 4S.

    I was just as baffled since I was using it pretty heavily.

    Many upgrades are problematic because they are second installations. I did a clean install direct to 802 on my new 5S and battery life is great. Go as clean as you have time for:

    Level 1- OTA upgrade
    Level 2- iTunes wipe and restore from backup
    Level 3- iTunes wipe and renter everything

    I restored as new, did not use backup either.

    I just started using iOS 8. I know it's a little worse than 7.1.2 as far as battery performance, not not sure to how much. Need more data.

    I did OTA upgrade but I haven't seen any issue yet on my 5s aside from slow refresh on mail app. No crash yet on any app. I'm probably lucky updating. :)

    My wife has 5S and .2 only screwed up her imessage/texts somehow.
    Since updating her imessage status stays screwed up. Keeps telling her she needs imessage activation but when she does nothing changes.

    She says her battery life is about the same but this is driving her crazy. I started a thread about it and no one replied. Guess it's a limited issue.

    Did you go to general>usage>battery usage page and check which app is eating your battery?

    Can you post a screenshot of your usage to see what is eating into your battery life?

    I have 5s and am on 8.0.2, and I am getting 7 odd hours of battery usage.. I have everything left on, brightness, Bluetooth, app refresh, etc....

    I haven't experienced that issue. It works fine on my 5s.

    Google iPhone battery recall...your phone might qualify for a free battery replacement. Happen to both of my sisters.
