I had no issues with iOS 6 on my iPhone 5 nor with the iPhone itself.

This morning, I installed iOS 6.0.1 and since then my iPhone has been staying quite warm and the battery has been draining about 20% per hour (that's 20% of the total charge capacity). This heat and battery drain occurs even with no apps running after a fresh reboot of the iPhone.


Does anyone else have suggestion regarding what might be done to prevent the iPhone from using up the battery? Or, is this just a new problem introduced with iOS 6.0.1?





iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
