Users are claiming that the battery drains faster after upgrading to iOS 7.0.6.
“Since I upgraded to 7.0.6 my battery drains at an alarming rate. Since 8:00 this morning I have made one call and checked email – the battery is now 51% after 2 hours! This was fine before the update” wrote Apple Support forum user dpinparis, for instance.
