Scotty Loveless is a former Apple Store employee, where he worked as a Genius and iOS technician. He also has a blog at Overthought.org, where he happened to write a post titled “The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain.” He has, over the years of working at the Apple Store, researched how to best combat the effects of battery drain on iOS devices, and in turn wrote up the post. Here is a quote:
I worked on the Genius Bar for almost two years, and the most difficult issue to solve was short battery life. It was extremely difficult to pinpoint the exact reason why someone’s battery was draining.
I made it my mission to discover the specific reasons for iOS battery drainage. This article is a product of my years of research and anecdotal evidence I gathered in the hundreds of Genius Bar appointments I took during my time as a Genius and iOS technician, as well as testing on my personal devices and the devices of my friends.
He outlines an 8 step process that he has come up with and goes through each with explanation. It is moderate in length, but definitely a worthwhile read if you are experiencing battery problems with your iOS device. Reading through it, most of what is said makes complete sense, I just never thought about it. For myself, battery life has been just fine even with iOS 7.1, but I know and have heard that many are actually experiencing lesser battery life than previously, so you should definitely check this out.
