    Hi all.

    I'm really confused with the battery life I've been getting with my iPhone 7 Plus. Ive had it since launch and noticing its getting considerably bad. Anyone know if this is normal battery life for the 7 plus?

    That doesn't look all that bad, but I can't see the first image with the top items. Your still getting about 7 hours of use with more than 1/6 of the battery remaining.

    Do you have auto brightness turned on? At approximately the same usage and standby as you I have 40% left. I also leave Bluetooth and wifi on. Yours also says iPhone has been plugged in since last charge

    Hmmmmm auto brightness is turned on. Wifi is on but I turn off Bluetooth. Iphone was plugged in literally for a few seconds as I screenshot this for query.

    I ended the day at 70% with 4 hours of usage and 14 hours of standby time. I haven't complained at all, especially after upgrading to iOS 10.3

    7 Plus 256 GB Model, currently on 10.2.1. Usage: 7 hr, 35 min; Standby: 36 hr, 45 min and currently at 61% (I do have the % turned off, but since I have the apple watch, it shows on my widget so I don't need duplicate indicator). I do have Auto-Brightness turned on and most of the settings turned on.

    My 7 Plus is not as good as my 6s Plus. But if I don't watch anything on YouTube it is slightly better. The second speaker is a drain on the battery.
    Also I don't think iOS has the low power cores and higher power cores transition perfected yet. Chances are some processes are using the higher powered core when they don't have to wasting battery.

    iPhone 7+ iOS 10.3 beta 1

    Taken last night. Only 13 minutes of music playing with screen off. Mainly light usage. Low power core within the processor used all day. No low power mode.

    Usage is relative. 60 minutes of a racing game is exactly the same as 60 minutes of podcast listening as far the settings figure is concerned, because time is time, but they have wildly different power requirements. 3 things to check:

    1. What apps are at the top of the usage stats? There could be one doing more than it should.
    2. Turn off background app refresh for everything you don't need to update on its own in the background.
    3. Turn off lock screen notifications for apps you don't need them for - games are the perfect example. Nobody cares if their character needs 200 more xp to level up.

    Facebook misbehaves a lot as well, so check that one and delete/reinstall to be safe.
