I updated my iPhone 3GS to iOS 6.0.1 and my battery life has gotten terrible.  Use to get all day off a charge not it's dead in <6 hours.  Any fixes?

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.1

    I have the same issue w/ my 4s.  My battery life was more than acceptable running iOS 6.  I updated to iOS 6.0.1 & now my battery life is HORRIBLE!!!  I just charged my phone & according to the usage, ie. Time Since Last Full Charge, was fully charged, yet it only said 94%.  I shut my phone off after unplugging it & when I turned it back on, the battery read 97%... ????? 


    There is definitely something that needs to be addressed w/ the 6.0.1 update!!  Really wish I hadn't gotten it!

    Had the same problem.  Tried many times to go back to 5.1.1 but no success.  Then did a restore from an older backup after deleting all "unnecessary (free)" apps.  The restore still left me with ios 6.0.1 but is now working without battery problems.  My guess is that some of those free apps/games had issues with 6.0.1  Doing this helped me keep all my contacts and important information.  Hope this helps.
