Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 6:44 PM (in response to Sotton)Hi there; I also own an iPhone 4 with iOS 4.3.1 and for some reason there's always someone complaining about battery shortness after any iOS update. Your device needs to get used to the new iOS and for it to do so 100% and get great battery life; you need to drain it's battery until it shuts down on it's own. afterwards, charge it to 99%-100% of battery life...enjoy!Mac Air, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iPhone 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 7:47 PM (in response to Matt Bianco)I notice a lot of crashes in the crash log for findmyiphone app. I do notice it crashes a lot if you try to restart it after it has been idle a while and then it goes back to the login window. The old version of findmyiphone worked much better than this new one and kept your login id in the window which made it easier to login.iPhone 4 (GSM) / MBA 13" 128GB, iOS 4, OSX 10.6.7
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 10:39 AM (in response to Vaux888)The lag does exist, I have it really bad on my iPod Touch 4G. It's fine in 4.2.1. and 4.1 but in 4.3 and 4.3.1 it's bad. Sometimes the apps skip the animations all together, but mainly when resuming/exiting an app it's jumpy.
It's only 3rd party apps, I launch mail, it opens with animation and closes with animation. No problems.
Cut the rope, no animation.. and when I close it, it lags when the springboard icons reappear. When I open it again, it pauses for a split second and then opens with lag. Happens other times too.
It's bad, I even saw this on the iPhone 4's in the Apple Store. So I know it exists. Please fix it in 4.3.2 or at least 5.xWindows 7
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 2:21 PM (in response to TechDudeGeorge)"It's only 3rd party apps"
So it's not the iPhone then? What a surprise that some third-party apps are not developed, tested and updated to the same standards as those from Apple? There's also the issue that not all third-party apps are updated rapidly (if at all) to remain absolutely compatible with all evolving features of iOS...
If it's 'only 3rd party apps' (and not all of those, perhaps) then that would also explain why not everyone experiences the 'problem' at all about which others complain so vociferously?

Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 3:36 PM (in response to KC7GNM)For me, it's fine on any built-in app, but lags on any apps you download. I can 100% confirm it's 4.3.1. I tried again by going from 4.2.1 where the animations were fine and as soon as I updated to 4.3.1 the animations bugged up. Really horrid :/Windows 7
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 4:57 PM (in response to Vaux888)I just upgraded to 4.3.1 and the battery life is now terrible. At about 3:00 PM it was 92% battery life. 5 hrs later its at 42% and I've hardly touched the phone, no phone calls to texting or emails. There has to be a fix for this or the phone will be useless.ipad, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 9, 2011 11:31 AM (in response to tuck01)For some reason after every new iOS upgrade, people start having battery issues. "battery drains too fast" etc. People, you must get your iOS devices use to the the upgrade by letting it die and recharge it to 99-100% without unplugging it; and try not to use it as much (better if you don't) so it doesn't heat up. Now, iOS 4.3.2 should be released within a weeks; fixing this battery issue...Mac Air, MacBook pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7), iPhone 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 9, 2011 1:48 PM (in response to TechDudeGeorge)I can also conferm I'm having the same issue on my Iphone 4, animations are like TURTLE.
I restored my Iphone, even tried a trick to restore to 4.2 but that didn't work. The core animations are very slow ore skipped like TechDudeGeorge very nicely described, same with Cut the Rope, it's even worse with Mega Jump; during the beginning of that game something still (background processing) disturbs the perfomance drastically resolting in a freeze moment during the game, THAT wasn't there before upgrading Same with moving the landscape in Angry Birds.
And opening the camera app; oh my God what happend there? I use this device for the special moments which suddenly and mostly happen for only a very short while BUT THEN I'M STILL WAITING FOR THE CAMERA TO START UP!
I've got my phone for half a year now, but this can't be happening.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 10, 2011 10:41 AM (in response to Matt Bianco)I did the dreaded full restore, setting up the phone as new. It takes a long time, especially as you select to compress music to 128bit.
Either the battery on my phone has coincidentally died the same evening I upgraded to 4.3.1, or the problem is related to the upgrade. But, the erratic behaviour of the battery tells me that it is likely the OS upgrade. Support:
After fully charging the battery, I have experienced the following on my phone, which doubles as an alarm clock (using Apple's Clock app): two of the past seven mornings the alarm has not worked because the battery had completely drained, and the phone was off in the morning. On the other mornings, the battery had anywhere from 50% to 90% charge.
Note to other posters: my earlier criticism that we have to resort to reading error logs was directed at Apple and not your suggestions.iMac, MacBook, iPad, 2 ATVs, 2 iPhones, Airport Extreme, 2 Airport Express, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 10, 2011 2:36 PM (in response to RestlessFool)its ios4.3/4.3.1 - animations of opening and closing an app are without doubt delt with the phone itself, seeing at the problem is with the UI of the phone.
Every 3rd party app does this, not just some. Therefore it can really just be some apps not supporting the ios. Infact id say the built in apps are choppy too sometimes, no where near as bad as all the 3rd party ones though.
doodle jump does this for example (fading in and out, rather than just lagging and flashing onto the screen), which doesnt on other devices.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2011 8:08 AM (in response to Vaux888)With your iPhone connected to iTunes. Right lick on the phone's icon in the left hand bar. And click "*Reset Warnings*".
Then do a sync. And when it asks you if you want to send diagnostic information to apple say NO.
That should help with the battery issues.iPhone 3gs, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 11, 2011 8:37 PM (in response to saliday)Clever little trick. I presume having the warnings on consumes power as it intermittently sends information. I have now done that to all three iPhones in the family.
Unfortunately, judging by today's battery performance, the improvement is either not there or not noticeable. I had three conversations on the phone, about 3 minutes each. I sent two text message. Used Remote app a couple of times, and read the news for about 45 minutes of active browsing. Battery went from full to 10% in 7 hours. The rest of the time, it was on standby.iMac, MacBook, iPad, 2 ATVs, 2 iPhones, Airport Extreme, 2 Airport Express, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2011 11:54 PM (in response to Vaux888)Listen up dear Apple, I usually do not do this BUT because I would like to have a stable iPhone 4 (WHICH THERE SHOULD BE NO EXCUSE FOR IT TO NOT BE STABLE, SINCE IT COSTS MORE THAN $200 DOLLARS!) I decided to create an account here and put my 2 cents on this matter! Yeah, so I do not know how to say this in a nice way but the truth is, iOS 4.3.1 is a TERRIBLE UPDATE! Constantly having graphical glitches or in other words, animations that lag, from switching to apps to sending text messages, to checking my emails on the native mail app! The animation lags occur at random. Now here is the main idea of this story, My iPhone originally came with the iOS 4.1 . The iOS 4.1 was smooth, snappy and just the fastest and stable iOS i have seen. Now that I have updated (BECAUSE iTUNES IS ALWAYS ASKING ME TO DO SO), I regret it badly and wished I had never done it, why? because... OH THAT'S RIGHT, WE CANNOT DOWNGRADE ANYMORE, and because we cannot downgrade anymore, we are stuck with it. SO please lovable apple, either fix it on the next update 4.3.2 or at least allows us the freedom to downgrade to whichever stable old iOS we want. I think as consumers it is our right.iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 14, 2011 4:43 AM (in response to Vaux888)Ok, this slow down issue is driving me nuts but I've realized if you put the device in airplane mode it fixes the issue. I then went on to test some more and discovered all you have to do is disable the wifi on the phone and the problem goes away.
It's a pain that I have to do this and pay extra for data but it fixes the issue all the same.....now come on apple fix the issue please.iPhone & iPad, iOS 4
