    My Battery life is absolutely RUBBISH !!!
    for example … I go to bed with 70% battery and wake up with my iphone 5 DEAD .. therefore the Alarm doesn’t go off !!!!!

    • Jes

      You need a new battery.

      • lisa

        the iphone doesn’t have battery to change. duh

        • roby

          The iphone does have a battery to change, you can buy replacements on ebay you just need to undo 2 screws in the bottom slide the cover off and undo 1 screw holding the battery clip on and then you can replace the battery

    • reyes

      check your apps. an app can be causing the battery drain

  • Thom_D

    My battery life on my iPhone 4S is actually better then it was under iOS 6.X.

  • G & M

    We want iOS 6 back, change for the sake of change in annoying, if ain’t broke don’t fix it !! G & M

  • Jess

    My battery life is awful! It seems that the battery dies without me using it.

  • Bob

    Battery life is good I havent had the update long so idk but the new features are awesome new look will be hard to get used to but over all I liked the update

  • Kristen

    My phone goes haywire every time I put plug it into my charger since the new 7.0.3 update. It will randomly open apps, open a different app I selected, make random selections in the app, I can’t use my phone properly on the charger, please fix this glitch!! Other than that, I don’t notice any other changes good or bad.

  • pozycja4

    At 7.0.2 my best with full power cycle lasts for 3 days standby and 6 hours of usage.
    At 7.0.3 It’s keep loosing % really quick. From 100% to 0 in around 24h.
    What a shame

    • pozycja4

      thats a lie and learn your grammar

      • Ina

        its really not, i updated to iOS 7.0.3 and now I have two issues:

        1. i have to carry my charger with me everywhere like a dog
        2. my wifi is greyed out and i do not have to option to turn it on…

        so the iOS 7.0.3 is a complete WASTE – if you haven’t updated your phone, DONT DO IT

  • sojrnr

    My battery life is AWFUL! I upgraded to 7.0.3 … fully charged …
    nothing running in the background … sleep mode. Went to bed. Next
    day the battery was down to 13%. Before, with 7.0.2, I could go all day
    using the iPad with several things running in the background and never
    get below 60%. Now, I can’t go more than a few hours without having to
    recharge. Quite frankly, my iPad is pretty much useless in this
    condition.

  • Phatbubbles

    7.0.2 was a better then thee 7.0.3. My battery on the 7.0.3 does not last the whole day, by mid day I have it at 18% and nothing is running on the background and I haven’t even touch the darn thing since I took it off the charger at 100%. Also it randomly opens apps that I haven’t selected. This update sucks!

  • SouthrnComfort7

    My battery will die quickly throughout the day. Then when it gets to 30% it just shuts off and dies at times. Other times it goes from 33% to 16% then to 42% then back down to 16% then dies without ever going any further down. Then if I plug the charger in while at 16% it jumps to 33%. I hate this update. I’m beginning to hate iPhone period. iOS 7.0.3

  • David

    with 7.0.2 and before I used half a charge in about 10 hours. The last two days since updating to 7.0.3 my phone uses a FULL charge in 3 hours after being in my pocket and not used.

  • Katherine

    With the update on my 4s, the message app only appears in horizontal mode – very inconvenient for texting. Really regret updating it. This needs to be fixed!!

  • s

    I never had any issues until 7.0.3. The battery life drops so quickly that I have to recharge my phone every hour.

  • Hunter

    I didn’t have any problems until I just updated to IOS 7.0.3 last week. Now the battery life is draining at an absurd rate and I have to keep it plugged in or my phone dies. Also, I just noticed that I my Ihome no longer will play with my iphone and my phone keeps saying it is incompatible with my ihome.

  • sƃoɹɟ qǝʍ

    I just watched my phone drop a full percent in about a minute. At this rate, I’ll get an hour and a half before my phone is about dead. This sucks!

  • captainkirk

    My wife just told me that the battery is draining a lot faster after this update on her 4s.

  • Kaitlin Elizabeth

    This update needs to be fixed ! It’s dying way too fast ! I’ll go to bed with a full battery and wake up the next day and it’s completely dead ! I barely use it and it’s dying too fast.

  • beckysupon

    My phone battery doesn’t even last all day. This is crazy. I work in real estate and use my phone for everything. By 3 in the afternoon it is dying. I am not where I can charge all the time but now I am having to look for outlets to charge my phone wherever I am. TERRIBLE PLEASE FIX THIS

  • beckysupon

    Also my phone doesn’t work with the bluetooth in my new car and when listening to books while driving, the books skip all over the place. I have to have my phone charging while I listen to books through the blue tooth because otherwise the battery goes dead. Same with my music.

  • Linda Zambrano Advena

    This update sucks! I’m losing battery about 10% every 15 minutes and that is without using it!! Please fix!

  • Mohamed Malik

    My ipad 2 doesnt have any issues, it last about 10 hours, however my iphone 4s…only last for about 6 hours……apple please

  • jgen

    was considering updating my i5 from 7.0.2 to 7.0.3. thanks for the feedback guys, avoided me a huge issue

  • eddie

    its annoying deleting incoming & outcalls one by one, should give u options for multiple choice delete, 2nd after deleting so much from recent calls the page freezes, shouldn’t be showing same name or number all over ur recent calls compress to under that persons history, I got my gf calling me 6 9 times a day all I c on my call list is her number lol should be a history for every call like the blackberry n samsung

  • DANIEL

    Battery life is same on Iphone 5 even after the upgrade to iOS 7.0.3…..Great work APPLE

  • Marsh

    IPad 2 battery life deteriorated immediately after installing 7.0.3

  • Evan

    My battery dies easily even if all I do is talk to my dad on the phone, I can have a 10 minute conversTion and my battery will drop %20

  • Kim Polley

    My battery life is terrible, my phone goes flat overnight – without being used at all. I have to charge it again. In the last hour it has lost 27% battery life and all I have done is send 1 text. This is crazy

  • Usman

    Its very bad, i lost 28% of battery overnight on 4S even my internet services were off …no message no call. and phone goes off automatically. I wish i can undo this update. 7.0.2 is better than this.

  • bogdan

    i have the iphone 5c and the battery is still great i love it :D

  • bogdan

    also the new update came today, ios 7.0.4

  • Nigel Connolly
  • John Williams

    Same as others, chronic drain of battery life on ipad. Before, I could delete programs from the cache by double clicking and then removing, which stopped things in the background dialing up 3G constantly. new version removes that or has changed it. I’m getting so disillusioned with mac.

  • Abhinandan

    Even i am facing battery life issue after updating my 4s with ios7.0.3. the battery just last for around 5 hrs, n earlier it used to last much more than this.though the usage habit is till the same.

  • Paul

    Disaster I pad 2 battery was fine every few days now am charging at least once every day since ios7 version 3 installed, it is a right pain & wish had never installed ios7 at all. Anyone know how to fix?
