I know every year with a new iOS, there are always many complaints about poor battery life. I've never had an issue before now. iOS 14 has def affected my battery on my iPhone 8. Tried some tweaks, but still an issue. Hoping my phone will adjust or that Apple will come out with another update soon.
I have just installed 14.1 and it automatically turned on 2 step verification for my Apple ID, which I did not want as my wife and I share the same Apple ID and email address on the two iPhone 8s and our iPad. A bit of a pain turning it off, as it means changing the Apple ID password and then making sure it is not invoked installing 14.1 on the 2nd phone.
edit: almost immediately on restarting, after installation of 14.1, a screen comes up about 2 step verification. Underneath the big continue button, is an options link; selecting this gives you the option of not installing 2 step.
One final (I hope) note on 2 Step Verification with iOS14.1: If, like me, you accidentally accept 2 Step, you have about 14 days to revert to your original settings. This does seem to require a change of AppleID password.
