    Really bad. Battery lasts about half a day. iPhone 6s and 6s+, trying a restore now. See how this will work.

    Mine is a little worse than 9.2 after having 9.3 one day. But it's only been one day so it's hard to say. I'll be keeping an eye on it for sure.

    was not as good as on 9.2. I performed Reset All the Settings and the battery life now seems to be as good as it was on 9.2

    I'm lucky to get 4 hours of usage on my 5c.
    I don't think iOS updates make a difference in battery life imho. As you get updates, your phone is also getting older, meaning you battery capacity is decreasing anyways. As more iOS updates Come out, I'd expect the battery life to decrease.

    I get where you're going with that. However, in general, when your battery life changes overnight with an iOS update, its hard to argue that its because the device is getting older. I'm in no way saying iOS 9.3 beta is causing decreased battery life (I haven't used it long enough to be sure).

    Never thought I would say this,what an improvement since 9.3

    time since last full charge 14hrs 47 mins
    29% charge remaining.

    Don't get me wrong Skygo app not currently working via 9.3 has also reduced battery usage considerably.

    That's some really good usage for a 6 no matter what iOS version.

    I think something is running in the background with my 6 Plus. My usage showed 22 hours with 27 hours of standby. There's no way that's accurate. I tried resetting all settings but that obviously didn't fix it. But battery life is still an improvement from 9.2.1 beta. Just wanna know what's running in the background.

    After another day of use I am seeing equivalent battery life to 9.2 on my 6s+. The original drain must have been an anomaly

    Mine's been terrible. Battery settings show that it's the Photos app? Not sure why that is, but it started immediately after installing 9.3 PB. Photos & Camera settings look normal, no indication of why it would be working so hard in the background. I used to go to bed with 35-45% remaining, now I can't make it to bedtime without charging.

    (Not complaining, this is why it's beta.)

    I wouldn't be surprised if a new OS install requires a bunch of indexing and related housekeeping, that could use a lot of battery in the first day. That's just a guess, I don't know that for a fact.

    Great results.
    Mine usually died at about 7-8 hours.

    Mine was pretty bad. I tried an Erase All then did a restore but that did nothing. I finally did a restore back to 9.2 through iTunes then updated back to 9.3 and then did a restore. Back to normal battery life.

    The battery life of my iPhone 6s has been great so far! After a few days everything has settled and running perfectly fine (even better than before). [​IMG]

    Look at mine... Photos is draining my battery drastically!! This is on an iPhone 6S. I have already reported this through the feedback app.
