It is not a surprise to me that people would be complaining about the battery life in the iPhone 6 Plus being horrible. This kind of thing has happened in the past where Apple releases a new iOS version or a new iPhone. Personally I think it is an issue with Apple not doing enough quality control before releasing it. I haven’t heard of anyone complaining about the Note 3 battery life but we will see what people say about the Note 4.
- You can do the following things to increase battery life in iOS 8.
- Turn off GPS
- Turn off Bluetooth if you don’t use it.
- Turn off Wifi if you are not using it.
- Change your display settings. A bigger screen on the iPhone 6 Plus will eat up battery fast because the number 1 battery drainer in any big screen phone is the screen itself.
The good news is that iOS 8 tells you what apps are draining your phones battery. This feature though takes a while to calculate battery drain since it needs a date to draw from. http://www.redmondpie.com/top-15-ios-8-tips-for-saving-battery-life-on-iphone-and-ipad-guide/
