    Hi I'm seeing better battery life on my iPhone 5s running ios 8.2

    Anyone with similar config want to discuss?

    It's kind of too early to really draw meaningful conclusions one way or another just yet.

    Given the stability improvements and bug fixes I would say battery life is better on my iPhone 6, nothing major but I'm seeing an extra hour or two usage - fresh install as always with all settings on.

    Agreed, it's too early to tell. Give it a few days and battery charges.

    Can we put a block on posts about battery life posted within 48 hours of a new iOS update? Eyeroll

    Yea, battery life post sicken me too. Most of the time folks have bad batteries and need to have them replaced yet for some reason they think software killed or broke their batteries.

    I think also posts about Safari being "snappier" should be on the block list too.

    Definitely a bit worse for me.

    Either that or the first 50% is just reporting more accurately. lol

    If most of the time is to say occasionally then that sounds reasonable.

    I believe those are already, technically speaking.

    I used to charge my iPhone 5 three times a day, and I charge my 6+ once a day...so I could certainly know the battery status of an update within 24hrs. Less actually...

    And you're saying those are correlated somehow?
    Gave my brother my iPhone 5 when I got the 5S, I now have the 6 Plus and he still has that iPhone 5 on the latest software. He charges it once a day. You don't believe your battery was defected? Hence Apple's iPhone 5 battery replacement program? An iOS software update will not cause a device to go from once a day charging to 3 times a day. (This is how you're correlating). Wake up

    It seems to be better on my iPhone 6, but hard to tell. I have been streaming XM radio half the day, and I took it off the charger at about 4am and have been on and off the phone with clash of clans and email and I still have about 25%.

    Usually when I stream I kill the battery really fast.

    I hope it is better because since 8.1.3 it sucked.

    First charge has been amazing on my 6!

    Usage: 7 Hours, 53 Minutes
    Standby: 2 Days, 0 Hours

    Current Battery level is 51%...

    Nope. Awful battery life. So bad I am actually considering selling it and getting a Droid. It won't get me through a day. And yes, I have restored. I can watch the % tick down doing something strenuous like reading an email.[​IMG]

    It's not iOS - go to an Apple Store and let them check your hardware.

    It's definitely not worse for me. It does *seem* better, but it's too early to tell.

    I think the battery life has been improved marginally.

    Um you are having some other issue,. See your usage and stdby s the same which is indicative of something constantly running (maybe email) This will usually happen when OTA update is done and something hangs. Best way to keep it from happening is to close all apps, reboot device then update. Not as big a deal when using iTunes to update.

    For now I would reset network settings and try it. If no help disable all email accts and reboot and see if it stops (Or delete email accts, reboot and add back). Lastly reset all settings in the first two don't help.

    Which device is it? I assume a 6Plus. It makes me a bit jealous. This more than double the lifetime than my 5S with comparable usage.

    Don't get too jealous. 14 hours is unachievable for most folk unless they use low-drain apps and have the screen off a lot of the time. I get ten hours from my 6+ if I use it heavily, and 11 if I use it lightly. Games etc would mean much less than 10 hours.
