Check Location Services
There are a ton of apps which rely for location updates in the background. Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and set apps to 'While Using' which you believe are gobbling up battery. Or you can go the Rambo route and just disable the Location Services toggle switch. Remember, doing this will render some apps useless, like Uber and Google Maps.
Set Screen Brightness to Automatic
A constantly bright screen can put a huge strain on your battery life. Launch Settings, then go to Accessibility > Display & Text Size and enable Auto-Brightness at the very bottom.
Use Dark Mode
This will work well on newer iPhones with an OLED display. Enable iOS 13 dark mode by going to Settings > Display & Brightness and then change Appearance to Dark.
Disable Useless Notifications
Every time a notification comes in, your screen turns on and the battery goes down the drain. Disable unwanted app notifications by going to Settings > Notifications. Honestly, you don't need that app telling you that you need to spend real money to buy more virtual plants.
Use Low Power Mode More Often
Low Power Mode is your best friend if you really want to get through the day without worrying about being tethered to a charger. You can enable it by going to Settings > Battery > Low Power Mode.
Try Night Shift
Believe it or not, some users actually that Night Shift has improved their iPhone's battery life. You can give it a shot to by enabling it from Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift.
Turn off Tap to Wake
Accidentally touching the display just to turn it on means that you are wasting battery life for no reason. Turn off the feature by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Tap to Wake OFF. This is applicable to newer iPhones only with Face ID.
Turn off Raise to Wake
Though it looks cool, but accidentally waking your display whenever you pull your iPhone to your faec causes battery drain every single time. Turn off the feature by going to Settings > Display & Brightness > Raise to Wake OFF.
Turn Off 'Hey Siri'
If you don't use Siri at all, then it's best that your iPhone doesn't listen to the 'Hey Siri' catchphrase at all. Turn it off by going to Settings > Siri & Search and turn off Listen for 'Hey Siri.'
Check Battery Health
Terrible Battery Health means your iPhone is not going to last like how it used to on day one. Check the status by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Health.
Turn off Screen Time
Not doing anything with the Screen Time analytics? Turn the feature off then. Go to Settings > Screen Time and turn it off from here.
Disable Developer Analytics
Turn this feature off by going to Settings > Privacy > Analytics. Don't ask me why, just do it.
This seems somewhat odd, but a buggy app running unwanted processes may cause severe battery life problems. Simply go to Settings > General > Shut Down. Power back up in a few minutes.
Try Clean Installing iOS 13
This usually helps most of the time. An over the air installation is not the best route to take if you have a ton of data on your iPhone or iPad including apps, games, photos, videos and whatnot. Just take a backup of everything using iTunes or iCloud and give iOS 13 a fresh install.
Still Bad Battery Life?
If nothing worked, then you might want to consider waiting for iOS 13.1 to arrive or just downgrade back to iOS 12. Totally your call at this point.
