iPhone iOS 7.0.4 battery life complaints ongoing

Since iOS 7.0.4 was released many iPhone users are having serious issues with battery life, even today the problems are still hanging.

The complaints are still coming in thick and fast when it comes to iPhone battery life since owners installed iOS 7.0.4, and even though iOS 7.1 has made it to beta it will not be releasing to the public until January 2014.

One iPhone user said in the Apple Community that they updated their smartphone to iOS 7.0.4 and since doing so they unplugged from charging and the battery drained over 50 percent in 30 minutes standby.

Many more complaints are pouring in such as one 16GB iPhone 5 owner said they have poor battery drain with different symptoms from the one above after installing the iOS 7.0.4 update. The iPhone 5 users said that when iOS 6 was installed they lost about 2-3% of battery – locations on, WIFI on overnight, but with iOS 7 they lost 6-7% per night (8-9 hours) overnight, so it proves that iOS 7.0.4 is not good at all and a new update is needed soon before Apple loses customers.

A few users have said that when they pair their iPhone 5 with their cars they lose around 10% very quickly indeed. Not too sure why this happening but we do know that Bluetooth does drain the battery a little faster, one other user said that their iPhone is just a fancy brick since installing iOS 7.0.4.

Phones Review Says
We have been using the iPhone 5S gold edition and since installing iOS 7.0.4 we have not had any problems at all with signal or battery life. The iPhone 5S for us is a very good smartphone and works very well.

Are you having iPhone problems since the iOS 7.0.4 update?

    My wife is having the same problem. After one hour of talk time, the battery goes from 100% to approx 13%. Unsat Apple!!

  • Jaden Levi

    Thank goodness I didn’t upgrade to iOS7 like all the fools who jumped on the bandwagon. Couldn’t wait until the bugs made themselves known right. They just wanted a shiny new OS and sacrificed functionality for esthetics. Pay the price.

  • Neela

    Just got my iPhone 5s today battery is a JOKE thinking of giving it back 😔

  • Blech

    It is ridiculous. My battery often goes from about 65% to shutting down. How do you cope with that?

    • Rotten apple

      Same here 45percemt then die. But it can run on 1percent for 15 mins.

  • Than

    having problem in my iphone. Complete hanging

  • Blake

    I’m having the same issues with my 4S since updating to 7.0.4. It seems to be an issues with how the OS gets information from the battery about how much charge it has. It will go from 65% to turning off. Then after 10 min of trying to turn back on (without charging it at all) it will turn back on and say it has 25% battery, then die again, turn back on and say it’s back to 65% again. I’m reverting back to 7.0.2 until this crap is fixed.

    • desire

      hey how can you retrieve to 7.0.2. ??? please help me and tell me how to do that ?? because i have tried and since my iphone is not jailbroken i can’t do anything :(

  • Rotten apple

    Yes and I’m very upset about it! I missed my year warranty by a few days! AT&T tried tell me since I wasn’t eligible for an upgrade to add an additional line to my account. Ummm how about apple fix this problem and refund me money for the new charger I bought that didn’t help. I’m about to buy a Mophie for $100. I need ios6 back stat. Anddddd my FaceTime no longer exist.

  • classic cars of yuma

    My battery life is less than 4 hours.That stinks some thing must be done.

  • M.Adeel

    I have Iphone 5s 64GB I have update my ios to 7.0.4 and its working fine in my Iphone even my phone battery life increases too.Now i have a long battery life.
    Thanks Apple.
    Keep it on.

  • desire

    i am so much upset because of this damn update 7.0.4.battery life is almost 4 to 5 hours.but what is the solution??? i have tried to downgrade my iphone but even that doesn’t work because my iphone was never jailbreak that’s why i can’t get shsh,blobs…so basically i am stuck…i guess this update is only good for 5s.but with other phones it’s a disaster.

  • iphone battery sucks

    Even before the update my iphone 5′s battery sucked. The Apple “Geniuses” say to turn off all you apps, bluetooth, etc. In other words, don’t use all the features and just use it as a phone. What’s the point of having it? I might as well get a flip phone an call it a day.

    I’m a (Or used to be) a loyal Apple fanatic, but now I am seriously looking around for a non-iphone with better battery life like the Droid Maxx.

    Dear Apple. Fix this problem. You are losing thousands of customers everyday and once they leave, you will have to fight tooth and nail to get them back.

  • Peter Schneider

    I’m having the same probs with iOS 7.0.4 and iphone5!
    If the battery is at 20% the phone turns off, after 2 minutes you can start it again, then it’s on.
    Turns off again at 11%, them staying on till the battery’s at 2%, now you’ve to charge it!
    That means you can use it for about 0,5 hours without charging!!!
    I don’t understand this!
    Please apple come up with something that solves this prob, cause it’s annoying!!!

  • OK

    I am damm lucky that have not update to 7.0.4 yet still stick to 6.1.4..otherwise may face those negatve expriences..
