    Now that it has been released to the public, what are some of the ways to save battery?

    Like the mundane settings that may be on that you could turn off or things you could do to save just a little bit of battery. If we could get a little list, that would be great.

    Thanks!!

    I'm leaving everything turned on so I can enjoy it all. In a week or two I'll start turning things off, but I want the full-monty right now.

    Turn off background app refresh.
    Turn on reduce motion (which turns off the paralax/moving homescreen feature).
    Turn off bluetooth/WiFi/etc (now made easier with control centre).
    Turn down brightness.
    Turn off automatic downloads.

    Only the first two are new to iOS 7.

    Battery is not user-replaceable/removable ;)

    But I see what you did there.

    Can I just say... I keep brightness relatively low but aside from that, I keep everything turned on other than bluetooth, which I toggle as and when required.

    I take my phone off charge at 7:15am and get home at 5pm with about 45% left. It can cope quite well with the new features :)
