Apple's iOS 7.1 update leads to complaints about battery life and Bluetooth connections
Noticing a drop off in the battery life of your Apple iPhone after installing the iOS 7.1 update? You're not the only one. Message boards and forums are loaded with complaints from those who wished that they never even heard of the latest iOS build. Besides a drop off in battery life, the update seems to also play havoc with Bluetooth connectivity and is causing random re-boots. One person said that he used to get 24 hours with the battery on his Apple iPhone 5s and is now having to recharge his phone after 12 hours.

According to Yahoo Tech, there is something that might help fix some of the problems. If you re-install the iOS 7.1 update via iTunes, it might help clear up some of the problems brought on by the OTA update. And it isn't just one particular iDevice with the problem. One person posted about the lack of Bluetooth connectivity he has with his Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 4s, Apple iPad mini with Retina display, and Apple iPad Air since the update. After last Monday's release of the new iOS build, 26% of iOS powered devices have now updated to the new build.
