    I got my iPhone 6 yesterday. I woke up today at 3:30 and took it off the charger. I've been using it frequently since then and now it's 6:30 and down to 57%? Should I be concerned ?

    Oh no! You have over 50% battery life left! Such horrible battery. Return the phone ASAP.

    Seriously cut the ****. People can't have problems without you being insecure that people are bashing the phone ?

    The battery is fine. With a new phone, you are using it heavily. New stuff to try, new apps to download, etc. That's human nature. I do the same thing when I get a new iToy.

    But you will find that as your usage moderates toward "normal" the battery life will increase so that you can use it for at least a day before charging. (unless you are into heavy gaming, constant videos, etc.)

    Oh no, I got you mad. Boo hoo.

    EDIT:
    -If you use the phone frequently, it'll drain much quicker. Treat the battery like crap and it'll drain quickly and worsen the battery span/capacity.
    -Turn off auto-brightness, lower the brightness
    -Select Fetch instead of Push, then select either hourly or manual
    -Turn off location services for apps you don't use regularly
    -Turn off background refresh for apps you don't use regularly
    -Turn off Siri
    -Turn off Bluetooth
    -Turn off Reduce Motion
    -Turn off Automatic Downloads in iTunes/App Store
    -LTE is a battery hog so turn that off if you need to prolong battery life
    -Keep the battery north of 50% at all times
    -Avoid bringing the battery to 0% unless it's for calibrating

    I think over time the battery gets worse, not better.
