    just updated my iphone 5 se to ios 11(ver11.2.5) i've noticed the battery on my iphone 5 se doesn't last more than 10+ hours than the usual 24(1day+5hr) charge..i fully charged it last night and just using notes throughout the day(next day)..the brightness is at 30-40% maximum. although i wonder and i have seem to notice a difference , my battery doesn't last long. it drains fast than usual after the ios 11 update. i jog at 5pm and use timer and stopwatch feature on the phone for 1hr and it seems like the battery drains fast than usual.

    Just wait. After every major update, the phone needs some time to adjust to the new system. Normally it should be ok in a few days. But some users have battery problems with ios 11. If the problem last, there is nothing you can do, except wait for it to be fixed with another update. Generally x.3 versions fix most of the problems

    Do you have a 5s or SE?

    Either way, iOS 11 cuts the battery life of SE in half. It doesn’t matter whether you use iOS 11.3 or 11.0. This is planned obscoloscence. There’s no way around it but to buy a more expensive iPhone.

    iPhone SE usage used to be 10-13+ hrs on iOS 9. And even on iOS 10 it was 8+ hrs I think. With iOS 11 it is like 5 hrs or so.

    Try setting it up as a new phone. My 8 started to have poor battery life (3% loss/hr at idle), setup as new phone and now under 1%/hr drain at idle.

    Oh come on. Enough with the conspiracy BS. By your logic my iPad Air 2 wouldn’t last more than 5 hours per charge. I easily get 20+ hours of screen on time. My iPad Air 2’s battery life on 11.2.5 is exactly the same as 10.3.3.

    Ever heard of degrading battery? It’s not the software, it’s the hardware.

    To be fair the iPad Air 2 is not an iPhone SE. And while half may be an exaggeration iOS 11 has definitely decreased battery life for some users.

    Still, you should give it some time index, it can make battery life worse.

    That is such a loaded statement without complete facts. An iPhone SE with a new battery does not have half the battery life. Batteries age and their lifespan reduces during it. My sister has her iPhone SE and her battery life has not reduced to half on iOS 11. Spend the $29 and get a new battery and then check your battery life. I doubt it will still be at 5hrs

    weeks ago until upgraded my iphone 5 se to ios 11, my battery life would last 2 days..thats how i measured the battery life. i use notes,facebook messenger incremental,varying times throughout the day to read and to write short statements, couple of words same thing on fb messenger, short messages/conversations. on idle my phone before doesn't usually drain fast. now my phone in ios 11 wouldnt last 10+ hours with the normal usage pre ios 11 install. the phone is 2 year old max. the battery drain i have observed started after ios 11 install, a week ago.

    A two year old phone most likely needs a new battery. Restore your phone as new, if that doesnt work, take it in to Apple for a battery diagnostic/replacement.

    It sounds like a battery replacement will help, if it's an SE Apple is selling replacement batteries at a discount. By the way there is no 5se, it's either a 5s or an iPhone SE, the 5s has no discount so make sure there's no confusion if you go in and want it replaced at a lower price.
