I only had two of those running, so I have trouble believing that's the reason for the profligate battery usage.

I have since turned one off. We'll see what happens.

Thanks for the info.

I guess Settings > iTunes & Apps store?

I'm no tech wizard, but that's what I did.

I just checked, the proper name is "background app refresh". It's a new iOS7 feature (in Settings-General). Not an issue in iOS5.

Generally, you want to kill background apps every day or so, especially Skype. Disable location services for as many apps as possible.

My old photo doesn't fit anymore? Still looking for optimal background dementions. Everything blows up ? Battery is same.

24 hours on a battery That sucks immensely. I can go at least 36 hours on a charge - more if I don't bridge to my tablet.

iPad 2. No issues but several apps are taking longer to load (games that talk to servers like WWF)

regardless of ios version, when my battery starts discharging too quickly, i kill all the apps, plug the phone into the charger, then soft reset the phone and let it build a full charge.

soft reset: hold the power button and the home button until you see the silver apple, then let off both buttons.

OK, a friend of mine who just updated to the iOS7 had similar issues. Seems in 7 the gps, camera, safari and one other thing are automatically on at all times unless you turn them off. Turn them off and away goes your battery drain. Just turn them back on when you want to use them. Apparently easy to do. Put your finger at the bottom of your screen, swipe it up and you'll get a menu of items that are on. "Flick" them upward with your finger and they'll be turned off until you want to turn them on again and you should see a marked improvement in battery life. Hope this helps.

To get to the running items you need to press the home button twice. Swiping up from the bottom of the home page opens up a different menu. As does swiping down from the top of the home page.

I have everything turned off that I can and still my 4S battery drains too fast. I can lose 10% with the phone sitting in my pocket and all aps closed, wifi off, Bluetooth off, gps off.

I'm not happy.

Well, while it's not likely your phone is old enough for the battery to have worn down a bit.
