Turn off AirDrop except when needed
AirDrop is now available for iPhone 5, 5s, and 5c devices running iOS 7, allowing you to share files and photos with friends and colleagues over the air when they are in close proximity. But its use can take a heavy toll on your battery, particularly when AirDrop is in "discoverable" mode.
Simply swipe up from your home screen to bring up the Control Center, then tap AirDrop. Select Off when you're not using it.
