IOS 7 Seems to Suck Big Battery...

Just updated the 4S & it seems IOS 7 is a real power sucker: 72% to 5% overnight??

Anyone else seeing this?

Conditions were essentially identical to the previous un-updated night with respect to signal, apps running, calls made, texts sent.

Seems a mite excessive to me.

The iPad, however, doesn't seem to have been affected as much, but it's still noticeable. Seemingly.

Your GPS wasn't on was it? And you were somewhere that had cell service, so it wasn't constantly pinging trying to find a network? If it wasn't one of the known battery life busters . . . then that's just scary.

I imagine forwarding all your data to the NSA takes a bit of battery.

I'll have to check that, but otherwise big signal, wifi-- identical to the previous night with the previous IOS.

Not on my new 5s.

On for 24 hours. Using it a ton since it's new and still have 44% left,

I'm amazed.

I update my 4S to iOS7. Not really any different than before with power use.
I charge it up in the morning and it'll run all day.

Has anyone updated their iPhone 4 to it? Was there a lot of lag post upgrade?

Yes, I find my 4S really sucks the battery hard now. Unit will be stone dead by the end of the day if I don't put it on charge part way through.

You need to turn off Background Updates for Apps.
Big battery suck and you don't want that anyway.

I've noticed a bit of lag with some apps and some within the OS. I'm sure updates are coming that will fix that. Not a real problem though.

My 4S battery is draining pretty quick. I'm at 44% with limited use after 7 hours.

^this.

I do notice it uses more than it did, even with that turned off, but it'll last a weekend day.

On OS 5, where would I find background updates for apps? Thanks!
