Hello,

 

I am attempting to find a fix for my iPhone's battery draining too fast. Two days ago I purchased

a new iPhone 5, the long battery life of the iPhone was one of the key reasons I upgraded.

However I noticed after getting home that the battery was draining very rapidly (with 4 hours of

normal usage) I have attempted to resolve this issue my turning off bluetooth and wifi when not in

use. I have also looked online via a google search to see if I was the only one having this issue.

It seems that there are some bugs in iOS 6, I am including one my crash reports with the hope that

someone will be able to help me resolve this issue. Thank you in advance.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    There are no bugs in iOS 6.  SOME users are experiencing issues with their device and their unique combination of apps on the device.

     

    Basic troubelshooting steps from the manual are restart, reset, restore from backup, restore as NEW device not using any backup at all. 

     

    Try each of those steps in order until your issue is resolved.

    You're very welcome.  These basic steps resolve over 99% of all errors.

    After using the new iPhone 5 for 12 days I arranged to return mine to Apple today for a refund. I've owned both the 3GS & 4 (not 4S) in the past.

     

    Main gripes:

     

    • battery drain is terrible. I've read support forums, restored the phone, disabled LTE, Wi-Fi & bluetooth, lowered screen brightness, disabled spotlight search, restarted the phone etc and even after an overnight 100% recharge, with minimal use, the phone barely makes it to early evening. If I use the **** thing I don't even get through the day. The phone also does get warm – but not as hot as I believe other users have reported.

    • maps (Melbourne Central railway station shows as 'Collingwood' and there is a BP Service station there too that doesn't exist... just one example – ridiculous)
    • Siri cannot be configured to use Australia Bureau of Meteorology weather information from 3rd party apps. Instead it tells me incorrect details from overseas sourced data. So I ask it is it going to rain and it says "fine weather" but then later in the day there are thunderstorms and rain!

    • Wi-fi sync is broken. Also tried troubleshooting but it is flakey (assume this, like maps, is an iOS6 issue)... but still

    • The lightning connector. Read the marketing reasons, the complaints etc etc but in reality it means (a) I'm using a stupid adaptor with my bedside clock radio that is going to snap any day soon and (b) i'm carrying the recharge cable around with me as the cable type is rarer – so difficult to just borrow/lend from others when out and about
    • The $900 for 32GB price tag. If this were a much less expensive phone I'd learn to live with the above defects perhaps. Paying the Apple Tax you want the product to perform.

     

    The imminent release of the Google Nexus 4 has me wondering if its time to switch....
