    Hello guys,

    do you experience shorter battery life in the beta? My iPhone 6 gets depleted super quick so I just wonder if I'm the only one or not?
    Also, is there an app that can check battery life? Something like coconut battery for mac?
    Thank you

    Yeah it's poor, it's fine in standby but not drains badly when in use

    My battery life was fine up until this latest beta. Been draining much quicker this time. This app will give you battery info. It gives more info in iOS 9 but there seems to be some under the hood changes in 10 that the app doesn't like. Also, I'm sure I read somewhere that Coconut Battery can do it with an iPhone connected via cable. Can't vouch for that though.

    Battery life for all of the betas has been the same as iOS 9.3.2 on my iPhone 6+. I unplug my phone at about 6 am, and when I go to bed at 10:30pm, I have 30-50% charge remaining.

    Is normal. Presumably in there you've got debugging code, you're likely making debugging data (including crash data) that gets sent off to Apple if you've confirmed those settings etc.
    If you see what Xcode logs when you plug a phone in it's just a glimpse I'd imagine if what's going on in a device.
    It should quicken up soon enough

    So we can expect better battery in the final release? First beta user here :)

    Yes. Will vary on your usage though I'd imagine.

    Yes. The betas have diagnostic and logging stuff / things that aren't usually running in regular public software so Apple can identify issues and testing things.

    My battery life was poor on beta 4, it improved immensely on 5. Over night I'd lose 2-7%, on 5 it'd still be on 100%. Not sure if I'll install beta 6

    I have not had any good results with battery life in any betas. On a 6s.

    Went to bed last night with 57% percent remaining. Woke up with 14%. Running Beta 6.
