    I feel better knowing I wasn't going crazy this morning. After spending the last 15 hours tweaking iTunes Match, I was afraid the service was draining my battery, but then I just let it sit idle on my desk at work and periodicaly checked it, every 30 minutes I lost 5% when it was in standby. When I was checking mail in 5 minutes, the battery drained 1% each minute. After a full night charge last night the day of standby has brought me down to 43%. I normally charge my 4s every other night, and I listen to Pandora and TuneIn Radio regularly. I have a feeling it hasn't affected everyone, just like I had no issue before, but clearly have a massive issue now.

     

    SERIOUSLY, APPLE. Make an announcement acknowledging this garbage.

    I am convinced that some of the users being affected are because of an issue in Apple's upgrades that affects Microsoft Exchange accounts. I had two people in our company upgrade from an iPhone 4 to 4S. For the first one (let's call it phone "A"), I upgraded to 5.0.1, then restored the information from his old phone. For phone B, I restored the information then upgraded to 5.0.1. Phone A had no battery problem. Phone B experienced the rapid battery drain. To fix the problem I only deleted and re-configured the Exchange account, then let the battery run out COMPLETELY. Only when the phone shut itself off did I plug it in--and I made sure it charged to 100% before unplugging it. With only those two fixes, the battery problem disappeared. That was very little headache for the amount of time iPhones save the company across the board.

    I don't have Microsoft Exchange that I know of and my battery life is awful after upgrading.  I can go from 100 to 20 in just 2-3 hours.  Help Apple!

    Waiting for an Apple announcement, the speculation, and reccomended work arounds hardly apply to the many users experiencing this issue.

    I have the same problem.  The battery on the new 4s drains noticeably quicker after installing 5.0.1  .  It wasn't very good before the update (I had it done to 20% at 6pm every day after the moderate usage), but now I have to charge the phone so I have some charge left for my trip back home.

    Same here: after installing 5.0.1 on my iPhone4 I lose around 10% an hour in stand by. And at one point I did notice it was heated up... everything was fine on 5.0.

    Pretty surprised to have ended the day with 6 hrs 13 mins usage and 19hrs 36 mins standby. Didnt expect that. This battery draining isn't affecting me like I originally thought. Those are good numbers to me.

    Yep, chalk up another user.  I thought it was just me but my battery usage is definitely worse since going from 5.0 to 5.0.1

    Yeah add me and my wife too, Updated to 5.0.1 on both phones still experiencing fast abattery drainage and my wifes 3gs the cell signal went to crap. kept searching for signal. Went to AT&T and they swaooed out the sim card thinking maybe that was an issue but that didnt fix itm So now I'm doing a restore to it to see if that fixes it.

    I'm having issues, too. I just got the phone on Sunday (and didn't get it working until Monday...long story), so I can't say if it was the update specifically, but last night when I went to bed it was more than halfway charged, and when I got up I received the 10% warning. I charged it up to 78% before going to work at 8 am, and it dwindled to 0% by 3:30 pm. During that time, I was listening to music in Spotify over wi-fi, and that's about it. After the phone shut off, I've been slooooowly charging it, and it's at 33% right now. I upgraded from the 3GS, so I'm used to charging a lot, but I didn't expect this at all!

    Hey guys,

     

    I got a call today from a really cool guy at AppleCare -- he said they saw my post in this forum, and wanted to talk to me about my usage.  I was on the phone with him for 20 or so minutes, and they installed a battery life logger on my phone.  They're basically analyzing my usage and are really trying to get to the bottom of this.  They're working on it, be patient!

    I have both an iphone 4 and a 4s.  The iPhone 4 does not have E-mail setup on it.  It used to last 2 - 3 days on little use.  It is Sprint so it came with iOS5.  I just updated it Sunday to iOS5.01 and now It will not last a day and will get down to under 20%.  I don't have WIFI on, but I do pair it with an Xlink gateway bluetooth device and it is connected all the time.  Again no issues before update.  It looks like bluetooth keeps looking for connections so I wonder if that is draining the battery even though it has 1 connection.  I only have a few apps on the iPhone 4.  I have not updated 4s phone yet as I get pretty decent battery life and don't want to ruin that until an update come out.

    Unplugged 7 hours 11 minutes on Standby 3 hrs 2 minutes usage. 47% Not bad, but not breaking any records either.

    Update - I fully changed my iPhone 4 a little over 2 hours ago.  I am showing usage of 15 minutes and standby of 2 hours.  My battery % is now listed at 87% from 100%.  Hope this helps Apple find the issue as I really like my devices...

    Same issue here....iPhone 4 with Verizon...I have had zero issues with battery life. I upgraded to iOS 5 with no issues. On Sunday I updated to iOS 5.0.1 and i can't even make it until noon and my battery dies. This is unbelievable that Apple would release this update with this kind of issue. I used to use my phone all day, talk, e-mail, text, listen to music, what ever i needed to do and i could go 1-2 days without charging. As of yesterday I can almost watch my battery go down by the minute. Apple needs to fix this ASAP.

     

    Also, my phone is now constantly warm...this could be unsafe.

     

     

    On another note, can i downgrade back to iOS 5??
