    My Iphone 5 is not working as wonderfully previous to this 6.1 update. The battery is draining very fast using LTE and even Wifi or doing nothing by night with airplane mode. I also suspect that usage statistics doesn't work as before that it really showed my use. It is impossible that I have 17h 48 minutes of standby and 13h 30 minutes of usage in 19 hours!!! My battery is now at 1%. Previously to this update I was really at standby for more than 2 days... I want to recover my Iphone before this awful update!

    As an IP4 user who upgraded from io5 to 6.1, I can tell you something is wrong.  I'm a heavy user (calls, emails and texting) and my phone is now a piece of crap.  I have a mophie case which prior to the upgrade was only used mid-afternoon on a heavy day.  After upgrading to 6.1, I have to use my mophie to recharge my phone by noon.  Something isn't right with this software update.  I have disabled services to see if I can isolate the issue and so far, nothing is working.

    The same applies to me and it didn't work this way before the update... and my battery drains very fast.

    The same applies to me now... It wasn't before this update. I have just noticed this morning.

    So basically, just restore via Itunes, and put all my apps back?

    yes but try these steps first:

     

    Follow as written. If no help look to restore via iTunes as a next step. And dont restore your backup. That could put the problem right back in. Test it and see how it works.

     

    1: Reset all settings (settings>general>reset (NOT ERASE ALL SETTINGS)

     

    2 a. Go through initial setup steps (lang, wifi, siri, enable location, etc) and choose setup as new phone (don't worry your apps, data, contacts, mail will still be there). Do NOT restore from iCloud or iTunes (It can copy back corrupt settings)

     

    2 b. If you do not get the complete new setup screen with language setup and setup as new phone or restore from iTune/iCloud backup, be sure to go back to #1 and reset all settings again (it should happen the second time)

     

    3. Turn off system location services timezone and iAd (settings -> location services -> system services)

     

    4. Fully discharge battery (until you get the spinning wheel and it shuts off)

     

    5. Fully recharge battery (overnight if possible)

    budogirl, the standby time it the total time since its been off the charger. It does not add the usage and stdby together for the stats. It has never been that way. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1805  So you are reporting almost 18 hr of standby and 13.5hr of usage which is pretty good actually.

    Sbailey 4, thank you very much for the information. Nevertheless, the battery drained less with the previous OS version with WIFI use and LTE lasted for almost 2 days of standby.

     

    Now my stats are of a usage of 5 hours and 10 minutes and a standby of 5 hours 54 minutes with 63% of battery percentage with Wifi. Nevertheless before the update it could be around 75% to 85% depending if I used LTE or 3G with a similar time or 80% to 85% only using wifi. There is something that doesn't work well and more people are reporting similar issues. Is it a problem of some apps, the OS 6.1? Apple has to check it and fix it.

     

    In fact this Iphone5 is my replacement. The first only lasted 4,5 hours after normal use and I was really deceived since it was my first Iphone. The Genius bar checked it and it was a defective Iphone... I own other Apple products and a Mac Pro that are amazing. It is incredible that Apple doesn't test the Iphones 5 before selling them. I bought this tool for using all the features, the LTE and not for shutting them off. It is not a cheap smartphone!!!! I own a Samsung that has a better battery life... Honestly, I am quite deceived with this product and this last update which seems beta...

    Updated yesterday (both on my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini).  My iPhone died right before coming home from work (never happened before). Today battery was down to 85% after 2 hours: recharged it fully before leaving home and after 4 hours its now down to 17%. My iPad Mini is down to 38% after 1 days moderate usage, much less than normal as the battery life was normally impressively long. This makes traveling at work difficult with Apple products. Would be great if another update could address these issues ASAP!

    Let me repeat to all iPhone 5 users....... Apple WILL NOT FIX THE BATTERY IN IPHONE 5.... No point to wish and hope. It is not going to happen.....wHy?

     

    1. Apple don't know how

    2. They don' t care

    3. iPhone 5 was a TEST product for the new smaller charger and for gate new A6 chip

     

    So don't continue to have his wish that ip 5 will get battery improvement.  Tha is not going to happen.

     

    Just throw your ip5 and buy IP5s or IP6 and you'll know why.

    I think that Apple engineers should be checking the

    Crash reporter keys but since many of us have the non-

    send option for saving battery power they don't receive them

    I paste mine and you should check yours and report them.

     

    If there is no update soon in a week I will contact with Apple...

    iOS 6.1 killed my iPhone 4S battery life. On 6.0 I was around 50% after a day of light use. With 6.1, it was down to less than 10% with the same usage pattern.

     

    I've found my problem is fixed by disabling push email/contacts/calendar. Having switched it to fetch every 30 minutes (and without changing anything else), I'm back to 50% at the end of the day.

     

    I'm pretty sure that I had push disabled before, so it seems like the OTA 6.1 upgrade enabled it without telling me.

     

    I have gmail email and iCloud enabled for everything else. I guess this tallies with other reports that iCloud may be to blame.

     

    Can anyone else confirm whether push email has been enabled by the upgrade, or that disabling it fixes the battery issue?
