    Anybody else having battery drain issues since updating to 7.0.4? I'm down to 20% after only 7 hours 45 mins as opposed to my usual 10+ before. My usage has not changed much since the update so it's not a new app or overuse. Of course apple will refuse to address this as per every other battery drain issue. I'm deciding whether to ditch apple completely from now on because of this shoddy attitude to their software making the device suck juice. Any other views?

    My iPhone 5 is about the same on iOS 7.0.4 as any other 7.0.x or iOS 6.1.3. I get about 9 1/2 hours per full charge. Average.

    I am not even on iOS 7 yet. I am on iOS 6.1.2 and my battery is horrible. I feel like I have to calibrate it now every day!

    Mine seems the same. I would restore to factory settings before considering something as drastic as switching phones.

    I am on iOS 7.0.4 and my i5 has shown significant battery drain as opposed to 7.0.3... I too am disappointed b/c while I'm at work for 8 hours, phone is on but not in use and after I take the phone off the charger at 5am, and leave work at 3:30pm, phone is well under 50% with no use, just on stand by.. When running ios 6, I would be at or around 80% after the same time period.. Dunno what to think, love my i5 but hate the battery now..

    Sounds like a poor cellular connection is zapping the battery while you're at work. How is your signal strength there? Have you tried resetting your network settings or restoring?

    Sounds like it needs to be restored.

    My mini has always been a bit weak in battery life when compared with my wife's iPad 2 . Both are basically configured the same way in whatever settings could pertain to battery use. This has been the case in both iOS 6 as well as iOS 7 .... I attributed it to the fully size iPad simply having a bigger battery (??)

    I have 50% left with 10 hours of use and 2 days standby on my ipad mini retina using 7.0.4

    I leave wifi on and Bluetooth all the time cause I stream a lot of music with Sirius XM to my LG tone BT headphones.

    I never bothered to update to 7.0.4 on my 5S cause I'm satisfied with it on 7.0.3

    It sounds like your mini-retina does quite a bit better than my 'original' mini. It's certainly adequate for what I do, as I am normally at home and can connect it. But a 6 hr flight on which I did nothing other than read my book on Kindle will usually take it from 90 ish % to maybe 25 or 30 % ..... David

    Do you have apple care that should warrant a replacement if the depletion is that severe

    No I don't, and living in the Caribbean , support can be sketchy. It was purchased in San Francisco at the Apple Store on release day a year and a bit ago ( Nov 2012 ) The performance on the device itself is great, but battery wise I'd call yours 'better than average' and mine 'worse'. You battery stats look more like my wife' full size iPad (2) ..... I always figured that hers was simply better because of a bigger battery.... Now I wonder !! David
