My iPhone4S is less than 1 year old and in the last couple of weeks, the phone battery cannot last 8hours of light usage without recharging. What's light usage:

  1. 2 phone calls (all less than 3 mins)
  2. Couple of postings to Facebook app


I left home around 7A and at around 1:10P, my phone is dead.


Are you guys experiencing the same issues?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Is your Facebook App up to date. Older versions of Facebook App have been reported to be buggy, if not noticed by user, it was noticed by iPhone causing poor performance. Tap App Store app on iPhone and make sure Facebook App is up to date. If it is then the usual steps with poor battery performance, is to Restore iPhone with iTunes on computer, when prompted at end to Set Up as New iPhone. See if performance is better. If not, make Genius reservation and take to Apple for evalution under Warranty.

    Do the Restore, Set Up as New, see if better, if not Apple Store can perform free quick (minutes) battery diagnostic testing. If problem Warranty will cover it. Every battery is different, every user is different but majority of iPhone batteries give great service for most users beyond two years, yours may differ.
