Apple recently released the latest update to its mobile operating system – iOS 7.1. The update brought with it a number of bug fixes and usability improvements but with every issue fixed, another seems to arise. This time, it seems to be battery life.
Now, we know the battery life of our smartphone is precious. It’s one of the most requested features for the next iPhone so when we update the software, we definitely don’t want to take a hit and experience unnecessary battery drain. However, speaking from personal experience, it seems like the battery performance of my iPhone in particular has dropped significantly since updating to iOS 7.1. I’m talking 15% remaining by 4pm with usage that I would not describe as heavy by any means (and certainly usage that is no different to before I updated).
So, we want to know how has your battery life been since updating to iOS 7.1? Is your battery running out faster than before the update? Have you experienced increased battery performance after updating to iOS 7.1? Take part in our poll and let us know what you think.
If you’re not sure how to check battery usage, go to Settings>General>Usage and your battery stats will be at the bottom.
