    Hi Guys,

    I purchased my iphone 5 around 4 months back. Until last month my full charged battery was normally covering 2 days but since last 3 weeks my battery is draining fast and I need to charge it daily. I installed few apps in last few weeks and I am not sure if any of new app draining my battery

    Is there any way I can identify the culprit app or reason for this much battery consumption

    Thanks

    It's iOS, on beta 3 my battery life has improved a lot over 7.0.4

    I would do a fresh restore and ensure that you do not restore from a backup. Granted 7.0.4 battery life is acceptable on my 5S, 7.1 beta 3 runs circles around it in the performance and battery department.

    There are system monitor apps that will let you see what's driving the CPU or you can take a peek in xcode. Start with a simple reset to kill all the processes. There's a chance it will happen again but often not.

    Its probably ios 7. My battery now sucks due to ios 7 and LTE making it into my area. Barely make it 12 hours on my 5s
