    Let the phone drain down to 0% and power itself down. Then recharge it and post back if the battery life is still poor.

    Did you restore from backup? Some of your apps may not be optimized for ios7 and that may have a negative impact on battery life.

    Completely draining your phone battery won't accomplish much as LiPo batteries don't suffer from the memory effect. Are you sure you aren't experiencing poor battery life because your just playing with it more? Which iPhone do you have?

    It can reset/calibrate it so it reads more accurately. In these cases it's not that it's draining faster, it's just perceived that it is since the percentage is inaccurate. For example, I've seen people say theirs dropped rapidly after an update, but then it ran at 1% for an hour. Letting it power down isn't a guaranteed fix, but it's the first step in troubleshooting it. If it doesn't help, a restore might be in order.

    Draining the bettery to 0% doesn't reset the battery indicator, which I think is what you're refering to. To do that you just need to reboot (at least this was the case with iPhone 4).

    Well, I've seen it help in some cases and it's a simple first step in troubleshooting. Letting it drain down to zero will show her if it's a consistent drop.

    I just wanted to share my usage stats running ios7. Overall I am impressed because a *.0 version usually has issues with battery life. ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1379836444.683224.jpg

    I think it is because our usage is very high considering we want to discover all the changes and the new features in the new software....

    Mine seems to be fixed now. I turned off all auto updates.. also found that with the update Bluetooth was turned on! I turned it off... let the battery drain down and then recharged. All seems to be fine now.

    Apple actually recommends a full drain on the batteries as it does allow in some way more accurate battery % remaining. I have the FAQ on this
