I know iOS 7.1 Beta 3 has just come out so you won't really notice any effect on battery life as yet. So I started this thread so that you can post how your battery life is under iOS 7.1 Beta 3, and maybe we can compare.

Lol a little early to tell.

I did an update(instead of restore) from 7.0.4 directly to 7.1 beta 3 on iPhone 5.

Really need to run through a couple cycles to determine.

Been running 7.1 B3 all day today, seems to be improved compared to B2 and 7.0.4. Not entirely sure by how much, but doesn't seem to be sucking the juice quite as fast. Looking forward to GM 7.1.

Battery life so far today
Is that listening to music or something? By the time I'm at 0 percent, I have about 4.5-5 hours of use just from basic stuff like texting, browsing the web, etc. You're at 67 percent and you already have 3.5 hours of usage. You can theoretically get almost 10 hours of usage...

i usually get around 7.5-9 hours of usage every day, that is a lot of web browsing texting, streaming over bluetooth and yes listening to music through headphones but thats usually around 1-2 hours a day and when i listen to music its with no wifi and like 1-3 bars of service, i only say that because i do browse the web a lot when I'm at the gym listening to music

Wow. Max I get is about 5-ish hours from 100 percent to 0.

Battery life is leaps and bounds ahead for me ...

Setup on 7.0.4 then Updated via iTunes (no erase) to 7.1 B2 then OTA to B3

No special rundown ... just normal use of another day .. mix of regular apps like mail/fb/whatsapp/music/etc

Battery life for me has been really good compared to B1 and B2. I use LTE (4G) and also have background app refresh turned on. Still managed 10 hrs standby and 35% more to go. 2 charging cycles completed already.

That's normal. Any more is not possible unless you play music.
Not true. I get about 6-7 hours of on screen time when on 3G (surf, text, mail, games, streaming videos) and 9-10 when on wifi.

My girlfriend on the other hand can see her battery die after 4-5 hours of usage when on 3G... My guess it's her multiplayer games with ads (like word feud) and constant chatting that sucks the battery dry, because I get the same numbers as with my phone when I use hers.

(Of course signal quality plays a big part, when I'm working in the library for instance, my battery can be depleted in under five hours of usage.)

Right here
B3 has been the best for me so far. And that includes IOS 5 and 6. Over 8 hours usage yesterday with 29% left. Every option is on from my fresh install.

had around the same yesterday as well, battery life is fantastic on B3, getting close to around theoretical 10 hours of usage, very satisfied with it, definitely the most stable iOS 7 build I've used

Pretty decent for a beta and a newer battery on iPhone 5.

I'll get about 6-7 hours w about half of that playing heavy games.

I would think about 7-9 with light usage.
