How is Battery Life on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch after updating to iOS 7.1?



Apple released iOS 7.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch earlier in the week with number of new features, refinements, improvements and bug fixes.

We noticed quite a significant impact on battery life when we upgraded from iOS 6.x to iOS 7,  so the question for today’s poll is: how is battery life on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch after updating it to iOS 7.1?

Based on the Wi-Fi battery life test carried out by folks at ArsTechnica, there hasn’t been a major impact on battery life after upgrading to iOS 7.1. As you can see in the chart below, there have been small gains and small loses across iOS devices, which could be considered to be within the margin of error.


iOS 7.1 does not include any major features so ideally there should not be any major impact on battery life, but I’ve seen few users complaining on Twitter that the battery life has worsened after upgrading to iOS 7.1. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fix for the geofencing issue in forced closed apps.

Please take this poll below and let us know what has been your experience, and please feel free to leave a comment if you like to elaborate.
