My battery life has dramatically decreased after the update.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    I'm sorry, but Apple does not provide a downgrade path for iOS. Because downgrading is unsupported by Apple we cannot discuss it on these forums, but you can use Google to find information on how to install an older version of iOS on any iDevice.

    What about "not supported" escapes your comprehension?

    Whatever you do, you will do at your own risk because downgrading is not supported by Apple.

    Any downgrade is considered a hack/jailbreak and voids your warranty and you forefit your right to get help here.

    I searched google, but it says the sign off date has been cut by apple, so the downgrade cant be verified. is any other method still possible?

     

    You already answered your own question!

     

    Hint:  As in the rest of life and the real world,  asking the same question over and over won't get you an answer you want to hear.

     

    AND, FYI, your battery issues have nothing to do with 6.0.2

    If you do a thorough search of this forum going back 5+ years, you'll find the exact same complaint about poor battery life after EVERY update since iOS 1.0.1. (There are several recent threads about 6.0 and 6.0.1 and poor battery performance.) If the problem  was in the iOS, no one would be getting a battery life of over 5 minutes by now! 

     

    The problem stems from settings corruptions during the update process, usually involving push email (often on Exchange accounts), but other things can be involved.  This problem is also more frequent on previously hacked/jallbroken phones.  There are many long threads discussing how to fix these. Downgrading the iOS doesn't help.
