    Same problem here since I have updated to 6.1.2.

    Apple told me to reset the iPhone as a new one and to install one app after the other to find out which app causes the problem. The problem remains even when no other app is installed.

    It`s great to have an iPhone which can`t be used...

    I really come across this problem as well. My iPhone 4S is completely drained out the battery in just 2:30 of usage.

    Please Apple, take immediate action to fix this. I'm getting bored and disappointed with this.

    And I did say once a month Lawrence. It only takes to charge a iPhone 2 hours from 0 percent to a 100 percent that is using a outlet not USB.

    Actually, you said no more than once a month. Yes, it takes 2 hours to charge a phone to 100% with a mains charger. that's why the charging circuitry in the phone turns off charging after 2 hours, whether you leave it plugged in or not.

    Read the other posts in the thread you posted to. If you had read it first you wouldn't have needed to post at all.

    I'm really not sure how charge time directly relates to battery drainage.

     

    As I stated before I've been using iPhones since the early days of the 3GS. This coincides with iOS 3.x I now have a 4S. 400, 1000, 1,000,000 cycles or not a phone doesn't lose up to 50% of its ability to hold a charge overnight. Maybe 1 phone, but usually not hundreds  (that's just including the poeple bothering to post to this thread and disgregards those assumed thousands of users resorting to scream profanities in their bathrooms as they ready themselves for work while their phone is dead) due to user negligence or error. My ability to do so DIRECTLY coincided with updating to 6.1.2, AND 6.1.3.

     

    My 3GS maintained a near perfect battery life for over 2 years with over 500 cycles on it because I followed apple's battery maintenance tips and suggestions. I have only done the same with my 4S.

     

    I have followed any and all tips/instructions available in this thread up to and including factory reset/restore. Restoring to 6.1.3 results in the same battery life. Horrible.

     

    In my experience I cannot call this a user issue. This has to be software related, and also most likely related to specific hardware in specific phones in date and place of manufacture. As some have said it may be a specific app that we recently updated but restoring the phone and reinstalling everything we use simply recreates the problem.

     

    Whatever the case, I started with iOS 3.x and got myself all the way to 6.1.2 before having a single battery complaint.

     

    Eagerly awaiting 6.1.4.

    Unfortunately the resolution posted didn't help. 

    Eversince I downloaded the update my battery percentage numbers drop dramatically - HELP!  [iphone 4, ios 6.1.3]

     

    Meanwhile ... resetting everyday hoping it will make a difference (phone plugged in all day now, not "mobile").

    After updating my phone it goes from 100% to 0% battery (Turned off with no power symbol showing) in only 30 mins.

     

    Then it can only start via charger, and even asks for iTunes when starting up. (DFU mode?)

    However its normally at 95% battery or so when its booted up again. (Despite it just told me it couldnt start because of power)

     

    If I connect it to iTunes, iTunes tells me that it can't read the phone and I need to factory reset. I did that twice now. Now I discovered that I just need to restart it again to avoid another factory reset. But I still can't use it without the charger. It simply dies ..

     

    Also the ringer is dead, can't enable it or turn it up. Buttons seems dead?!

     

    For the record, the battery and ringer was functioning very well before the update.

     

    Please allow a rollback Apple.

    Glad it worked for you.  It didn't make a difference for me (iphone 4, 6.1.3)

    It has nothing to do with it. I was responding to a post that made some ludicrous claims.

     

     

    My ability to do so DIRECTLY coincided with updating to 6.1.2, AND 6.1.3.

     

    MY ability to do so DIRECTLY corresponded with updating to 3.1.3 (that's not a typo). Also with updating to 4.0. I fixed it pretty easily both times by following advice in the forum. I have had NO PROBLEMS with 6.1.2 OR 6.1.3. If anything battery life is a little better with 6.1.3, but that's subjective, based on insufficient data.

     

    Eagerly awaiting 6.1.4.

    I guarantee that when 6.1.4 (or 6.2 or whatever) comes out there will be message threads that say "6.1.4 killed my battery life! I had no problems with any version through 6.1.3! DON'T UPDATE!!!!"

    Same problem here...since i updated to 6.1.3 the battery goes from 100% to 10% in two-three hours at best.

    Please fix it and release the new firmware!!! I have everything switched off!
