    It's not available Ota in uk yet so all I've done is read a couple if threads here concerning iOS 7.0.3 and my battery's gone down 10%.

    Epic fail, Apple

    I hope you're being sarcastic.

    And it is available OTA in the UK.

    When 7.0.2 came out my battery dies when there is 22-33% charge. Then I plug in charger and phone charges 30% in under a min.

    There's several threads on this .

    ----------

    24 mins later and I'm down to 80% now. 7 % in 24 mins amazing

    Sounds like there might be something going on with your phone (hardware and/or software-wise).

    Download proper ipsw and install/restore via iTunes. Usually installing/updating via OTA doesn't completely delete/cleanup like it does on iTunes

    My battery life is even better on 7.0.3. Did I do something special? nope just the USUAL checklist from an update:

    1. Reset network settings
    2. Reset settings
    3. Restarted the phone

    No I did not restore from back up for 7.0.3. For 7.0.2, yes I did because I can't lose my data.


    For today's update I simply plugged ip5 into iTunes and let it do the download and update

    iOS 7.0.3 battery life even WORSE than 7.0.2

    Updated OTA and my battery life seems a little better, although tomorrow will be a better test...

    Edit - I did just reset network settings and restart the phone and it went from 90% to 92% battery.

    Not sure but it could be that Spotlight is working behind the scenes or some processes are running initially after the update. I usually find the battery life settles down a day or two after an update. Be patient!
