    It used to be I get up at 6AM and when I put the phone on the charger at 8PM it would be 90% or %40 at the lowest (if I used it all day.)
    It's 9:20 AM and it's at 23%. :(
    It wasn't like this in Beta one.

    But it will be like this all summer. Result will vary, just like they did last year and the year before and the year before that.

    Something works now, it may not in the next update but magically will again in the 3rd beta.

    Same here, my iPad Air battery will drain 100-2% in 13 hours when the device was on locked and on stand by.

    Battery usage consisted of home and lock screen 100%.

    If current trends continue iOS 8 should be able to suck the life out of my phone in 10 seconds flat by the release version. Quite an achievement!

    Try this OP, this is straight from the iOS 8 Beta 2 release notes:

    Battery Life

    Known Issue
    Extensive console logging of NCLaunchstats may be a cause of reduced battery life.

    Workaround: Launch Notification Center, then reboot the device.

    I've been getting better battery life with beta 2 than with beta 1. I have a 5S.

    There are no trends really, just beta versions and all kinds of different installs and experiences people have with them. Doesn't say much about the experience the vast majority will have when the final version is released to the public.

    I noticed when I shared my location with someone in messages app all day it drained the battery significantly. Not sure how they'll fix that one

    How dare you bring logic and accurate information here! Most folks just want to talk about how it doesn't work! :D

    The battery life always takes a hit when they introduce new features like this. I think we'll see an OS-wide battery optimization before the end of the beta process like in the past. But it just makes sense to keep in mind that the more things we ask the phone to do, the more battery it's gonna use up.

    I know its a Beta! Some of you guys are so Crabby! don't bother replying to the problem threads if you don't want to contribute.

    I was just seeing if anyone else was having the issue and if they had a fix.
    Thanks Slipstream29.

    I thought it may be facebook or some app.

    I have the Beta to help the OS along. If you don't then don't comment.

    Thanks

    The battery life does seem pretty bad so far. But in years past I have always heard they have extra logging and debug information in the betas and that can result in worse battery life. In theory once the GM comes around, battery life should get alot better... I dont know how much truth is in this thought though :confused:

    Actually, i would consider it being fairly good battery life considering its a beta.
    Yosemite DP2 on the other hand, now that's a record breaker...

    Home screen kills mine the most. It's just optimization. They'll get it right by September.

    Agreed. And it seems battery usage always gets better with each beta. I bet we could find a thread from each iOS beta using too much battery.
