Our experience with Apple updates has been as follows:

More than A couple year old devices become quirkier and less functional with each update.  Most of the time, there is no roll back of updates after a very short period of time.  When you call Apple for support, the solution has ge erally been, "You should buy A new device.

Nearly.
Every.
Time.

Period.

I had an android before this and liked it. We had to switch due to a family plan. I don't spend money on phones. I just wait until the next free one is allowed. So while I appreciate your advice and enthusiasm, I would prefer to discover any fix for this particular problem. Battery fine and lasted all day until latest update, now randomly shuts down around 20%. Acts like it's drained. Plug it in, boots up, shows 20%.

Have you tried doing a full wipe and restore thru iTunes?

Apple still requires that you have a computer with the most shitty piece of software ever to use thier phones?!

No, you can do a full factory refresh and reinstall over wifi, or even OTA if you don't mind the data usage. iTunes is really just a portal into their app and music store any more. You *can* do it through iTunes, but you don't have to at all.

Remember, 10.3.1 was the next step in iOS. Totally different disk structure and moving to 64 bit only.

I would check and see if there are any 32 bit apps still running but hogging all the battery usage.

Given the latest update structure, that could definitely be it. And a full wipe couldn't hurt. These are just miniature desktop-like computers these days, and are subject to some of the many same issues with updates-over-time that we see in "real" computers.

Editorial note: The modern smart phone is probably the very best actualization of the term "personal computer" we are ever likely to see in our lifetimes. $.02

I did the upgrade awhile ago with no problems.  The power issues just started 2 weeks ago.  Random DEAD.  New battery yesterday
so I should know in a couple days whether it was the battery.
