Battery life tweaks in iOS 7.1.1 update

Written by David Stellmack

No official word from Apple to confirm

It would seem that Apple has kept mum about, perhaps the more welcome feature of the new iOS 7.1.1 update. Some users are saying that it would seem that Apple has made a number of tweaks in 7.1.1 that extend battery life and we know everyone wants better battery life.

According to testing over at ZDNet by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, the update seems to reverse the trend of battery life continuing to go down. In a six-hour test, battery life is about 16% better according to Kingsley-Hughes. If correct, the boost in battery life would see battery life performance return to iOS 6 levels.

A review of Kingsley-Hughes’s method, it does seem a solid indication that there has been an improvement. It is no secret that Apple has been looking at a number of ways to improve battery life. We have seen that Apple has tried to implement a method that sees the device conserve power by predicting what the user will actually need and apply the correct power management strategy to conserve power.

In our own testing since the 7.1.1 update, although not a scientific test by any stretch, it does seem that since we have applied the 7.1.1 update, battery life has improved some with significant use of the phone. It does seem like we are getting a bit better battery life than we were getting.

So far, Apple has yet to confirm or deny that the battery performance of 7.1.1 has been tweaked.
