    My 5S has needed charging twice a day for 9 months. Not going to need 3 charges after upgrading to 8 am I?

    Anyone have any nice reports about it before I go there?

    Thanks

    I upgraded the first 5 minutes it was available and haven't noticed any difference good or bad with battery life.

    I'm seeing shorter battery life on my 5s. I'd estimate that the battery life is draining maybe 25% faster than before the upgrade. Still worth it but I'd expect the next update gives us back what we lost...

    Well, that's just a single data point. I'm sure someone will have a bad experience. :)

    Hopefully it will be better because I'm about to buy one.

    The 5S you mean? I just think I got a dud.

    Out of interest, if it's only 1GB, why is it taking over. 30 mins to download via iTunes?

    That's quite a bit, is that widespread?
