    Did I really just see a battery thread posted onto the forums before anybody even has the beta installed? lol
    Will let you know as soon as I have the beta installed.

    It's only been about an hour actually, since it didn't come out until after the keynote ended, and that only ended roughly a little over an hour ago.

    With respect... what is the point of a battery thread with a beta release. It is likely to change with each iteration

    By the time it reaches public release nobody has bad battery these days any more from "normal" operation.

    Very occasionally apple will release something that reduces battery.

    Generally people get around 6 hours usage and a day of standby. You wake up, use your phone, get home, put it on charge.


    If you are using your phone in bright sunlight with the GPS on and iTunes match and you happen to be in a low signal area or travelling and using your phone, your battery is going to blitz fast. if you install a dodgy app or something that uses background battery, same thing.

    But in general i really don't see the point of these battery threads. In 99% of cases it is user error or due to using phone features. In the other 1% its a defect.

    From full charge I jumped in my car and drove 30 minutes to work with the navigation running.

    Upon arriving at work you could have fried an egg on my phone and the battery was at 38%.

    I use an iPhone 4s.

    IOS 8 Beta 1 Battery thread

    The battery usage feature is one of the, propably the best new feature IMO. Why does Facebook use 55% of my battery? :O

    time to relook your priorities? :p
    i'd not be that fuzzed up about this currently though.. i'm thinking a lot of these apps would be using up quite a bit of battery life as the whole OS as a whole stabilises :)

    i have no idea for battery life so far because today will be my first full day running it but calendar is using up the most with a lot of background activity but background app refresh is completely disabled and i only have 3 calendars running which are push and i completely exited the app...just annoying...

    Facebook has always been a battery hog. Check your Background Refresh and turn Facebook OFF because it doesn't really make good use of that feature.

    Why shouldn't Apple be able to get more battery usage with only software improvements? They did the same thing with OS X Mavericks and it worked really really good and everyone got more usage time out of their MacBooks.

    @Facebook is pretty bad coded and therefore it need a lot of battery. Just check your CPU usage when Facebook is running with background refresh on.

    So far ive been using my phone a lot with LTE and i think apple fixed their carrier modem drivers because my 5S is already running a lot more efficiently on LTE, almost iOS 6 like efficiency on LTE compared to iOS 7 where it just ate up battery on LTE, i used to get outstanding battery life iOS 6 when on LTE...

    For a first beta not bad at all, also all LTE

    IOS 8 Beta 1 Battery thread

    10% usage with 2.5 hours off the charger and 45 minutes of screen on time. Granted most of that is on WiFi but still. That's not bad. We will see how the rest of the day goes.

    definitely really good battery life so far, to me it seems like the whole OS is running a lot more efficiently then iOS 7...
