    Well I was completely wrong in my case. I've been working with Apple support regarding the decreased battery life. Turns out my battery, for whatever reason, is failing. Good news is it's still under warranty, so they can swap out the battery or replace the phone (I'm sure that's up to their discretion). In any event, the problem is the battery itself and not iOS at all. I would encourage anyone else that's having these issues to reach out to Apple support. They have arguably the best customer service I've ever encountered. Thanks Apple.

    How I can confirm whether its issue with battery or not?

    For how long your iPhone works on full charge?

    I have iphone 5 32 GB with iOS 7.0.3.

    On full charge my iPhone in the settings -> general -> usage shows the usage around 7-8 (wifi )

    And around 3-4 hrs on continuous usage of 3G + LTE with parallax effect on both cases.

  • Nexvick Level 1 Level 1

    You can't. As I said, you should reach out to Apple Support and they will most likely be able to help determine that.

    Good luck for you. Give us new information when you get your new battery. My Iphone is just a month old, an battery issue I would exclude (ok, you never know).

  • Nexvick Level 1 Level 1

    I wouldn't exclude it at all. There are going to be some products that slip through QC with faulty parts (batteries included). No one is perfect. While Apple has impressive yield when it comes to quality control, they can't catch everything. I would contact them. If it is not the battery, at the very least, it will give them (and you) information as to what might be causing the problem. This will allow them to correct the issue. And, given the opportunity, they will. You really can't go wrong with Apple Support.

  • Drzymek Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you! But it's like- oh, the iphone is working fine for about an month and then you realize that's not thaat good after the update. The question is - would it be as bad as on 703 if I had not updated this fast and was still 2 weeks later on 702. No one will know. I will wat for an update, after that I would contact apple


    edit: last day I had an usage of about 8h and standby of 36. The question is, what number of hours of usage is really high and what is low according the number of standy hours.

  • Nexvick Level 1 Level 1

    Based on the views and responses to this post, I would estimate this issue is affecting less than 5% of iPhone users. Yet Apple was genuinely concerned about the problem and approached me to try to find a solution. Apple does not want an inferior product out there. In addition to their high QC standards, they are constantly scanning posts like this one in order to stay on top of any potential issues with those products. Give them the opportunity and i guarantee they will take care of you.

  • Crlock Level 1 Level 1

    Really? 5% you're joking right? do you really think that every iphone user on the planet knows that this discussion forum exists? i had to do several google searches to find this thread.


    IOS does not recognize the battery drain as a problem, so you can't send an error report. every iphone user i know is experiencing the same issue, and so far the solution is to turn off some services, turning the device into a 1996 cellphone.... i've spent a lot of money on apps that i CAN'T USE because the battery runs out in 20 minutes!! we need, no WE DEMAND a solution for this problem.

  • Nexvick Level 1 Level 1

    If you had to do several Google searches, you clearly don't know how to use any of your devices in the first place and should promptly place your iPhone in the garbage. A search for "iPhone 5 battery problems" and this shows up as the 3rd option on the first page. Enough said. Have a great day son.

  • kirluki Level 1 Level 1

    I upgraded to 7.0.3 last night and when I usually had c. 50% at 5pm today I got to 0% and had to charge again. Key chain off, wifi off, normal usage.


    Could you please let em know how to go back to 7.0.2? Thanks.

  • gmcmhownerp Level 1 Level 1

    On the iphone 4 and 4S turn off the function tht sets the clock based on the local time is apparently checking for the current time zone far far to often. Make change by going to : Setting > Location Services > Systm services and turn off 'Setting Time Zone' It worked for me. Found this at ' to increase battery life of the iPhone 4S



  • Starbuck_21335 Level 1 Level 1

    On my wife iPad mini IOS 7.0.3 she found out it was the most recent facebook app. Once she logged out and removed the app from runningf in the background the iPad is back to normal.

  • Harpreet Janjua Level 1 Level 1

    Same problem occurs after restore iphone, reinstall ios.7.0.4 and all other phone switched off and saying batterry discahrge, plug in for recharge even the battery stands on 53% after 2-3 mins it starts and battary still at 53%...This is a huge there no any solution for this problem...???

  • Crlock Level 1 Level 1

    So far there is no solution for this problem... and all of those so called "Fixes" out there, like switching off wifi, services, updates, bluetooth and so on, ARE NOT A SOLUTION!! i'm really frustrated with this issue, now i have to carry my cable and wall charger around wherever i go, and i don't see a solution for this any time soon, it's like they want us to get tired of our current phone and get the new one... i think i'm going for the nexus 5...

  • gmcmhownerp Level 1 Level 1

    If you double click your home button, it will show you all of the apps that you have running. At the end of each day or more often. Swipe the apps shown up to close them. This will eliminate any apps that may be draining your battery.

    Let me know if this works. Also you can stop any websites that you have searched for on safari by clicking Safari and then the stacked squares on the bottom right and X out the items that you previously search for.


    I believe these steps solved my drain problem.
