Apple released the iOS 6.1.1 yesterday in an attempt to patch the faulty script that is causing iPhone 4S users' batteries to overheat and drain at 3X-4X the normal rate.


I have a Verizon iPhone 4S and the iOS 6.1.1 patch did NOT work.  Today, I watched my battery life go from 100% (cycle charge with top off) to 10% in 6 hours.  Like many of you, I use all the tips and tricks such as:

  • Fetch mail instead of push
  • No location based iAds
  • Siri not activated upon handset pickup
  • Minimal notification center alerts (only a few that I need)
  • Low brightness with auto setting


I hope Apple can fix this as soon as possible- this is causing irreparable damage to my battery in the interim until the software is coded correctly.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.1
