    I've tried just about every trick in the book to try to improve my battery life. I can no longer get my 5s to last longer than 7 hours usage. I've restored phone as new, tried not fetching email, taken off location services. Seems nothing has worked:confused:. At one point on my iphone 5 I used to get around 9 hours but that was on ios6. Not sure it could be the OS. Anyways just wondering if anybody has any tips that has worked. Thanks

    There's so much you could check. You could be in a low signal area, causing your device extra strain to maintain a signal. Your brightness could be too high. You might have a bad battery. etc. Can you tell us all your settings?

    How do you use the phone daily?
    Games? 3G? Sat nav?

    No games or nav. Lte although my phone is on wifi almost all day. Auto brightness on. Only have a few location services on. Background refresh only on for weather. I've taken that completely off as well with no changes to battery life...

    7 hrs of usage, and I mean real usage (not screen off like music listening) is a good result in iOS 7.
    Systematically switching off all the new services is not a good solution for me: you are losing all the new features to spare just a few minutes.
