Mine's not doing so well. Currently at 79% with minimal usage. I'd estimate being in the 88-95% battery range if on 9.3.2.

Here's mine, iPhone 6s. It's definitely not as good as 9.3.2 but not unusably (is that a word) bad.

Mine is not good at all on iPhone 6S and my watch. I went from 100% to 50% in like 30 minutes. Granted, I was expecting this to be the case, with this being the 1st beta, so I'm not complaining.

Battery drain has been very noticeable, but I almost found that it is mis-reporting battery percentage.

My 6s was down to about 25% battery by 11:30AM with very minimal use (it would usually be around 80%). At that point, my phone crashed and restarted. When it was back on, the battery had jumped up to 38% which, while still poor, is better than 25%!

Has anyone else noticed similar behavior?

I can't judge at the moment, I'm just about to take my phone off from a full charge to run a proper test.

Saying that, is anybody else's iPhone getting insanely hot when charging? Just pulled out the heat gun, and it seems to be sat about 41 degrees Celsius...

No change here, same as before. Did OTA update.

My battery life has changed drastically, I'm get down to 40% after about 2 hrs of use and 3 hrs standby. This is beta 1 so this type of behavior is to be expected, battery life should get better as the beta progresses.

Well, since mine crashes almost 1-2x an hour, I can't see my battery stats....but its currently at 33% at 12:11PM MST since being unplugged at 5:20AM MST. 6S Plus.

It seems like the heating issue was photos doing its thing. On my fresh install, it was preparing for a good 2 hours, and ate through my battery. Now photos has finished, all appears to have leveled out. Will be interesting to see how long the battery lasts.

Photos was on a massive 50% battery usage and only 2 minutes screen time when I woke up this morning, which was pretty funny. Seems a lot better now the scanning has finished.

Battery life definitely poor, phone was on 14% by 4pm, usually it's still up around 50% at that time. Not to be unexpected, though.

Going to keep low power mode on all day tomorrow and see how it fairs.

Dropped 13% of battery in the last 85 minutes with minimal usage.
The real test is tomorrow when I get up at 5:30am and get in from work around 8:30pm. If my phone dies it's back to iOS9 for me.

For a first beta of a x.0 update, it's about how I'd expect.

But I can tough it out with a Mophie case.

By the way, my iPad just autocorrected "Mophie" to "smoothie"

Mine was down to 23% battery after 7hr30min standby with 5hrs usage which I hadn't been using that long so it must have been doing background tasks. I'm on a 6S Plus and updated OTA.

Telling you right now it probably won't last.

Yup - I agree considering it's just dropped another 2% after sending around 6 messages in WhatsApp.
Considering just saving myself the pain and restoring iOS9.3 now.

My Apple Watch battery is also taking a bit of a hammering. Down to 52%.

It actually is a high priority because Apple has to improve the battery throughout the beta process. It just shouldn't surprise anyone.
That's a much more eloquent way of describing what I was trying to say. Thanks.

Internally, power consumption and performance are on the radar, but those issues take longer to fix.
