i fully charge iPhone 5s every night. With "average" usage,  battery % is usually around 30% after 3-4 hours. I have followed all of the settings advise from Apple to increase battery life and issue has not improved. All suggestions will be appreciated.

they should show up next to your screen name as a red circle with the number of replies. Do you kill your apps when finished?

  1. Press the Home button two times quickly. You'll see small previews of your recently used apps.
  2. Swipe left to find the app you want to close.
  3. Swipe up on the app's preview to close it.

What is your timeout set to? How long before your screen goes black after you've set it down?

I think if you kill the apps when you are finished with them and set your screen timeout to 30 seconds that will help. I've had my phone on all day with very light use and the highest number I have is 11%. Screen is never above 10% - averages about 5%.

Based on your % I would guess you've spent a number of hours on Facebook; not all at once, just in the last 24 hours.

Just on the forum. Are you on your phone or the computer?

Phone. Auto lock is set for 1 minute which is the shortest shutdown time offered.
