Personally, as a second-generation iPhone SE owner, I have felt that my battery life has improved with the new update. In any case, there are some things that you can turn off to preserve your battery. For example, Apple recently revealed that haptic feedback for keyboard will deplete your battery faster than usual. So, make sure to disable that if your battery is draining quicker than usual.
Another issue iOS 16 users are reporting is slow Spotlight search. Spotlight search is showing results after a significant delay for some users. According to MacRumors, resetting all settings has helped some users fix the issue. But, note that Apple has not acknowledged the issue as of yet.
