After Downloading IOS 7, my battery drains quickly, but also get very, very warm

After downloading IOS 7 to my iPhone 4, the battery drains extremely fast...but even worse, my phone gets so warm it is actually uncomfortable to hold.  Anyone else have this issue?

Turn off background refresh in your iPhone 4. Settings> General> Background App Refresh, also close all apps running in background. Not just press home button and forget about it.Smiley Wink

Let me guess, did you do your iPhone update OTA?   I have found that when updating iOS OTA, that something in the internal settings seems to get "corrupted" and for me, performing a "Reset Network Settigns" followed by a manual reset of the device (Home + Wake/Sleep buttons) seems to resolve the rapid battery drain.  I have also found that performing an install through iTunes generally resoves/prevents the problems.

 

Now, with your iPhone getting hot to the touch, it means that the processor is busy running and they is why the device it hot (it ia probably also why the battery is draining very quickly).  If you have a system monitoring tool that can show your running processes, you might be able to track down the one which is eating your CPU cycles and driving your heat up.

Another thing I did, that dramatically improved my battery life, is reduce motion (aka disable parallax effects):

Settings - General - Accessibility - Reduce Motion.

 

I was excited for this parallax thing, but then kind of disappointed by it anyway.

Have you gone through settings and turned off all the autosync features? I unplug my iphone at 5AM and plug it back in at around 9PM and the battery is at 75 percent, that is with email and a lot of talk time during that period
