Just like most everyone else - after the 6.1 - 6.1.1 updates, the battery on my iphone 4s won't last a day. When usually it would still have at least 60% power at the end of my day.
APPLE: PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE

Have tried all suggestions to fix the battery issue AND NOTHING WORKS. Delete Exchange accounts, turn off calendars, reboot, hard boot and NADA. THIS IS REDICULOUS, APPLE.
I can't believe I am actually considering dumping my iPhone.

And you tried the steps in the link I provided. To the letter.
And also turning off iCloud.
As it says in the article, they are working on a fix.

Ok, there is a solution that has worked, from a friend that works for Apple in South Africa.
Connect your iPhone to iTunes and backup, make sure you also backup your photos and any other app info, and then restore to factory settings & reload or download the full 6.1.1 update it's around 900mb.
Setup your phone as a new phone and then reload all your apps, photos and anything else you had on your phone.
This is not the ideal solution as you may loose info, but it does work, and I now have an iPhone that works.
And I dont have Exchange on my phone so I don't think that was an issue.

Thats it I´m done! I´ve tried restore, set as new, everything.. Nothing worked out.Still having issues.I will take my iphone back to apple dealership becouse its in quarantee and do it every time again if issues still remains.I can´t officialy downgrade fw and have to stay on buggy one.This is apples policy.I will return that battery eating peace of metal and glass and buy galaxy S4 when its released. I am very furious. SOO sick of it. I was big fan I had 3GS,4,now 4S, lot of purchased apps- that was only think thats been holding me for last months.

Having the exact issue as everyone else on here
phone was on ios 6.0.1 - No issues and excellent battery life
This update (6.1.1) kept alerting me to update which was annoying - did it and now the phone is f*&^ed Spoke to apple and visit a genie who wanted me to give them £138 to get another iphone. Explained that the software is messed BIG-TIME, but said that it was just my phone. Took the forum posts aswell, and as I was waiting all the people waiting were Iphone 4s user complaining about battery and over heating at the Trafford Centre in Manchester..............
APPLE!!!! Please give me back my iOS 6.0.1

Where i can downoad this 900 mb? But it will be better, if you show where i can download fill ios 6.0.1. ^__^
P. S.: After deggie's solution and full recharge - 2 hours standby - 100% batterry. So, let's see on it later.

I have the same battery problem. Before 6.1.1 I was getting over 7 hours of usage time. I know average less than six hours. It's very pitiful. I notice my phone is much slower to respond and I've done basic troubleshooting without any improvement. I was hoping a restore would help. Seems like there is a software glitch.

hi, in my opinion, you should go back to ios 6.0.1, if you want to download ios 6.0.1 firmware go here >>>> http://www.iphoneitalia.com/link-per-il-download-di-tutti-i-firmware-per-iphone- 370.html and try to search some dowgrade tutorial ...... anyway apple release ios 6.1.2 and 6.1.3 within the next week to fix some bugs,I hope battery bug! is shame, only apple makes unnecessary updates ...... instead of improving devices, they only become worse .... I have no words after all the money it costs! apple please wake up!! otherwise all customers will flee!

I too aplied 6.1.1 as I was having MS Exchange sync issues, and now like lots of others the battery life is completely unacceptable. The phone is constantly warm and apps are closed etc. Apple you developed a new update and as I had no battery issues before, may I kindly ask that you produce a fix very quickly, or allow everyone with an iPhone 4S and have the issue, an exchange to a iPhone 5. I swapped after many years of Blackberry to Apple as they lost their edge, I do hope Apple doesn't go down the same path. Your urgent attention with this issue is appreciated.
