    Anyone else experiencing worse battery life after Pangu? I don't have a lot of tweaks installed but my 6 Plus is getting considerably less time per charge.

    Can't say the same for me. Would you please list your tweaks and apps.

    I feels the same, although I dont really have numbers to back it up because a respring, resets the usage tracker and I am always playing with new tweaks that need a respring

    Its pretty solid on my 6 Plus.
    Lasts me an easy 2 days.
    It must be something you installed.
    You got Appcake? If you do remove it.

    its kinda meh, but still good enough that i can use all day and still have power, usually i go to 20% or lower but it never dies unless i purposely let it die.

    I had battery life that would last days on idle and about a day and half to two days on regular use on my 5S before I would need to plug in.

    It seemed to me after jailbreaking 8.1 things were good at first and after I installed some Cydia stuff my battery life started to suck and I'd need to plug in by around 6pm every day in most cases. So I uninstalled pretty much everything I selectively installed from Cydia (plus dependencies) and it never seemed to recover. I did a wipe (factory reset and "new phone" setup) yesterday so I'll see how things go from here.

    I grabbed a list of all the stuff I had installed before the dump (not the wipe) in case anyone is interested:

    After 15 days of a clean install and no JB it hasn't made a difference, so up to 8.1.2 and back to JB I go.

    If you install over 50 packages then that explains why you might have battery issues or other bugs.
    I advise people to keep it simple and just install the stuff you really need and use to avoid issues.

    My iPhone 6 feels about the same, but I didn't really pay attention to my battery life before it was Jailbroken

    It seems to have improved somewhat. In the last 7 days my battery has drained the equivalent of 6.8x. Before I'd be surprised if I got 8 and 9 or even less; I was around 15% or less remaining by 6PM on a full 8AM charge daily on 8.1 proper, regularly.

    Obviously I'm using TaiG and not Pangu this time - clean install this time as well.

    Still on 8.1, and I get about 8 hours of usage which is not bad. Just a note that I use wifi most of my day
