    My battery life, even on wi-fi, has fallen to just 4.5 hrs usage lately. I'm trying your technique now and will report the results tomorrow.

     

    Otherwise, my iPhone 5 is still under AppleCare warranty, so I'm talking to them.

     

    Oh - that also reset my background wallpaper. Off to update settings.

    Let us know how that went!

     

    I've joined the camp of people who have issues with iPhone 5.

    It actually did help somewhat. My "usage time" has gone up from about 4.5 hrs to about 7.8 hours (calculated after it falls to 50% battery time).

     

    I think the main effect that had was turning off location services for all the apps. So you can selectively turn them on again for apps you use. You will get prompted with each app to give or deny permission.

     

    One precaution though. While it is true that it does not delete data, it resets lots and lots of stuff. Some passwords need to be re-entered. Your lock-screen and background wallpaper need to be reset. Your brightness levels too. If you had any assisted features enabled (like bold text or high contrast) all those need to be rest as well. So you might find yourself jumping through lots of hoops to get things working as they were.

     

    But it did seem to help.

     

    Battery life is still lower than it was pre iOS 7. It used to be closer to 9 hours. But 7.8 hours is "pretty good." So yes, I think it is worth trying.

    Here is what I did to prevent the mysterious battery drainage.

     

    1. Uncheck Data Roaming in Settings->Cellular

    2. Disable Automatic carrier searching. Manually pick the carrier. (Tmobile in my case).

     

    After doing above, my cell phone signal strength jumped from 2 bars to 4 bars! I am not sure which one actually do the magic but now the battery can hold much longer like day one.

    I believe roaming is off by default for everybody.

     

    If I try your #2 I get a "cannot load carrier list" so I have to keep it on automatic.

    I tried ALL of these suggestions and more, months ago. My battery life remains miserable.

    Some of us have hardware which currently does NOT like iOS7 and no amount of tinkering in the settings will cure this infernal battery drain.

    Has anyone considered that it may be something internal that's wrong with our phones. I have tried all the usual fixes like notification, brightness and everything else imaginable. I've had the battery changed out twice and yet I have the same issue. I took it to the repair shop and was told they can't fix it. They suspect it had something to do with the mother board.

    I'm experiencing issues too. Today I forgot to turn locations services for maps of and my battery drained from 100% to 14% in 4,5 hours. But even with location services turned off, my battery life is moderate. I already tried to do a hard reset and I even restored my iPhone 5 as a new phone via iTunes but that only works temporaly. Two weeks ago my iPhone battery died while still at 40%. Well at least, it turned itself off and displayed that picture that tells you to put your iPhone in the charger. So back at home I put it in the charger and guess what? It said that it still had 40% of battery left but somehow the battery had still died. Apple really needs to fix this. I love my iPhone but the battery life just *****.

    Ever since iOS7.0.6. and still on iOS7.1 both me and my wife had huge battery drain on our iPhone 4S and stand-by was equal to usage time. We finally found the solution to a post of another user on the Dutch Tweakers forum. There seem to be a bug within a certain Dutch coupon app called 'Scoupy' which drained the battery completely although GPS setting was turned of and also 'refresh on background' was off.

     

    Scoupy said that a fix for their app is send for approval to the App Store. We removed the app and our usage/stand-by time is again as normal (higher stand-by time then usage time) and best of all a 'normal' battery use as it was the case on iOS7.0.4. I hope this could help someone. I'm wondering if the iBeacon changes in iOS7.0.6/7.1 together with a bug in the Scoupy app could be the cause? Maybe this is also with our similar apps you have on your phone.

    It's an Apple hardware problem based on bad batteries. Apple is failing to stand by its products and make them work properly.

    I don't agree with that as I have iphone4 my wife has 5.

    My 4before upgrade to ios7 was rock solid in terms of battery, it has to do something with IOS rather than hardware. Same goes with iphone 5.

    Today with 60% of battery, I opened the camera app to take some photos and after the 5th photo my iPhone 5 shutdown. This is not normal at and Apple should take this problem more seriously, because this seems to be much more an hardware problem than a software problem.

     

    People are reporting this since the iOS6 and now we have the 7.1, so this doesnt seem to be a software problem at all...

     

    Im getting really tired and angry about this...

    I used to get fantastic battery life but now I'm lucky if I get 4 hours (of light use!!).

    I have done everything possible to save my battery. I think I either have a battery problem or a software issue.

     

    Either way, this is ridiculous.
