Is it worth updating my mini to 6.1.3? How bad are the battery issues?

Your experience may defer but I wished I had stayed on 6.0.2.

Went straight to OS 6.1.3 and my battery life has been awful; 9-10 hours to about 7 hours on average. :confused:

But in what way?

The process is exactly the same.
Many devices go thorough a reset/test sequence when powered on that they don't necessarily go through when it is rebooted. Also ram gets scrambled when the device is powered off.

As I've said elsewhere, I had battery life issues on a couple of iOS devices after an upgrade until I turned them off and back on. I have no solid data to back it. But it's what I've observed. And for all that it takes less than a minute, it can't hurt.

I updated my 3rd generation iPad from 6.0.1 to 6.1.3. and the battery life became much better.
