Hi guys I'm getting serious problem of battery life in my iPhone 4S after updating on iOS 6.1.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1

    I am having the same issue.  It literally drains 1% every two to three minutes.  I have tried resetting the phone and doing a battery reset- running it completely out and then charging it to 100%, closing out everything that could be running and nothing seems to help.  I contacted Apple support and they told me it was a software issue and wanted me to pay $250 for a technical support plan so they could help me fix the issue that their update caused!!!  Ridiculous!!!  This phone is less than 1 year old.  I never had any issues until the IOS 6.1 update.   Unless I have it constantly plugged in and charging, this phone is worthless.  Does anyone have any suggestions?? I'm seriously considering going to get an Android.

    So am I, not only with my iPhone but iPad, I agree this is beyond ridiculous, how can we uninstall the update? Apple needs to fix this ASAP. I have read on  some of their solutions but none of them works. I started deleting apps turning off Siri and still nothing....I don't think they should charge $ that's not right, they should do another update without whatever they did before turning our phones back the way they were because whatever they are did it didn't work....I'm with you guys I want this problem fixed too!

    I was so angry i kept reading other posts about this problem... I found deleting any mail accounts, letting battery die completely, the charge fully 100%, recalibrating it by not taking it off hook, then reset phone *to reset hit off and home button. (I did it a few times before letting it turn back on)  after re-put mail account... this helped a bit.... I still notice when using phone it still drains fast but not as fast as it was before. I still hope apple tries to fix their mess up though....

    Very poor battery life after updating -- I turn the phone on and can almost watch the battery meter go down.
