I've only had my 7+ for 6 days, but 10.3 has good battery life for me. I had it on the charger a couple times today at work but battery is fantastic on my device.

I know it's early but anyone seeing any improvement and or decreased battery life with iOS 10.3
I applied the update yesterday early afternoon and I have not seen any significant changes or decreases in the battery life of my iPhone 7 Plus. I also updated two of my other iPhones and the battery life seems exactly the same there as well. So the end result is neither increased or decreased and is about as stable to me so far within 24 hours.

Anyone noticing battery percentage jumping/skipping at times? I'm not completely certain of it as I haven't actually caught it in the act, so to say, but there have been a few instances where the battery was at 80% (or 30%) and then after no more than a minute or two of reading something in Safari the percentage would be at 78% (or 28%) making it seem like it skipped a percentage since it would have been far too quick for it to actually go down 2% in such a short period of time. (This is just based on a a few observations over the last couple of days using an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.)

I wouldn't have noticed if the indicator skipped 1% and went down 2 at the same time :D
All these battery graphs and percentages are relative and nothing to stress over IMO.

Not really anything along the lines of stress, more of just a difference from before and curiosity.

I had a problem with my 5s regarding that: It always skipped - on iOS 7 - the same percentages: 60% (went from 61% to 59%) and 30%. My iPhone 6s on iOS 9 does not skip any percentage. Neither does my iPad Pro on iOS 9 as well.

My 6s sucked battery power for the first couple of hours after installing 10.3 but quickly settled down. It now seems to be similar to what it was on the previous IOS software.

There was a bug at some point that caused some of these kinds of percentage skips, which was then addressed, but that was well before 10.3 (or 10.2).

My 6S has had the same battery life through the last many updates. No differences, just crappy battery life as always :)
Ha ha LOL! yeah i agree IMO iphone 6s on 9.3.5 was not good nor bad just average IMO, what i'm afraid is going from "average" to "crappy" here on ios 10.3. :D

10.3 is better. If your on any version of 10 It's an essential update. If your on 9.3.5 stay with it.
