I updated my phone and afterwards it made me a nice cup of tea, and a warmed and buttered cheese scone. Previously it made average tea and never buttered the scone - so a big improvement. Otherwise no changes evident.

Well, today my iiPhone battery played tricks. After a half hour call it was on 34% and with light use through the day I hit 4% by 4pm. I then proceeded to watch a video for 45 mins, used my GPS to avoid traffic and roadworks on the way home, Apple Pay at the petrol station and still had 2% at 5:30. Since updates have messed with my battery percentage on prior phones, I proceeded to run the most battery consumptive App and leave thee light on for a further 20odd minutes before it finally died.

I'm now charging it fully to 'retrain ' the battery sensor and hope to see normal battery use tomorrow 💩

I put my phone into DFU mode and did a clean install on my iPhone 6s Plus 128GB - everything going well; very stable, no battery life quirks etc. regarding the new filesystem - I've given it a whirl on macOS 10.12.4 and you can now create etc. using diskutil without need to put in the warning flag where you acknowledge it is still beta - makes me wonder whether it is pretty finished at this point with the feed back given regarding iOS 10.3 will probably help with debugging APFS some more before 10.13 ultimately ends up getting it.

I have an iphone SE which I'm not using yet so I'm only monitoring standby usage, but I updated it to 10.3. The first 12 hours it used 1% of the battery, but in the subsequent 24 hours it's somehow managed to use 10%.

And previous to 10.3?

My iphone SE has used another 15% since my last post. The screen was off the entire time.

I wonder if the new file system has some sort of defrag process built into it to do over the week after it is updated or something? Surely it should settle down quickly though if it's a background process and your phone is always on standby like that...?

I hope the scones were thinner and lighter

Good point. I recall a few updates ago, there were  battery issues caused by reindexing after the update, chewing power for that period. Bigger GB's means more content means more indexing. I can imagine the new file system, to be "install efficient" might just get it on, then housekeep for a bit. I guess in a few days that would settle down.

Thanks for that, just updated mine too.

Also just in my email box

We discovered a bug in the recent iOS 10.3 software update that impacted a small number of iCloud users. This may have inadvertently reenabled some iCloud services that you had previously disabled on your device.
We suggest that you go to iCloud settings on your iOS device to make sure that only the services you would like to use are enabled.
Learn more about how to manage your iCloud settings or contact AppleCare with any questions.
Sincerely,
