Before upgrading I was getting typically 8 or 9 hours of use on my iPhone 5. Note, my iPhone 5 was replaced 2 months ago because of a defective home button, so the battery is almost new.


After upgrading to iOS 7, I seem to be getting just 6.25 hours of use (if I calculate out proportionately when the battery gets down to 50%).


I know some more stuff is going on in the background, like automatic software updates. Still, it seems like a substantial battery time loss.


Are others experiencing this as well?
