I found that my wifi is not connecting automatically couple of times when I return home. I am using Airport extrime 5ghz router connection for the last two years and it seem perfect with other wifi devices. Same time phone got lost all available wifi's and can't refresh them until I did reboot. This morning I found battery got drained completly even my phone was charged 100% last evening...

What should I do?

It's a well documented bug with iOS 8. It affects all iOS devices running iOS 8.

From iPhone 4s, and iPad 3, to iPad Air to iPhone 6, and 6 Plus.

Hopefully iOS 8.1, which is released on Monday, will address this.

In the mean time you will have to turn off/on wifi. If that doesn't help. Turn off/on the iPhone. If that doesn't help, forget network. Lastly if that doesn't help, reset network settings.

From what I've seen (and posted above me), its more likely an iOS issue and not a hardware problem.

I agree with others that this is more software related and not hardware. My iPad Air running iOS 8.0.2 has WiFi issues once in a while also.

I was using same ios8 for a while on my former 5S without this issue. My wifes and my son's 5 also fine on ios8 connecting same wifi as myself. I don't think it is just ios, unless these phones are using different version.

Like I said, reboot isn't always necessary. Sometimes not even a reboot helps.

What do you mean by "battery got 15% this morning"?

I don't know, I went to the bad at 10pm with the 100% of charge and waked up 7AM with just 15% battery left warning. The only program listed running/sucking battery that time is my surveillance camera's monitoring program which never took as much battery on 5S/iOS8 combo. I am concerned a little.... :(

Yeah, that's not right if the app didn't use this much battery before. You could try deleting the app, rebooting and then reinstalling it? Has the app been updated for iOS 8?
