    Hello,

     

    I am currently an owner of an iPod Touch 4th generation, running IOS 6.1.2. I will be glad to help solve your problem with your iPod/iPad/or iPhone.

     

    • My battery has inproved after following the IOS 6.1.2 update.

     

     

    Battery Drainage Issues (How to solve them):

     

    1. Update your iPod/iPad/or iPhone to the latest IOS. If you already updated to the latest IOS, please proceed to step 2.
    2. Reset all Settings: Settings > General > Reset > Reset all Settings
    3. Wait for the iPod/iPad/or iPhone to restart
    4. Once the iPod/iPad/or iPhone has restarted, all the settings have been changed. You may change them back to your personal preference.
    5. Use your  iPod/iPad/or iPhone until the battery dies (until the device turns itself off)
    6. Plug your  iPod/iPad/or iPhone into charge. The trick here, is to leave it 1.5 hours or longer after it reaches 100% --> undisturbed (preferably overnight)
    7. After leaving it 1.5 hours or longer on the charger, you may unplug, and start using. Give it a few days for the battery to Calibrate.

    Dear sunargon ,

     

    Yes I've updated my 3 handsets to 6.1.3 on Thursday, the first three charge cycles were extremely horrible in battery life terms. But starting yesterday the battery was back to normal. I'm now at 6% with 8:44 hrs usage and 1 day standby ( other two sets are almost the same ). I haven't done anything other than let the battery die and phones shut down then do a full charge during the night ( about 8 hrs ) every night  from Thursday through Saturday.. 

    My guess is that in the first three days the updated bugs of the screen lock and other bugs took sometime to settle. I guess the processor was busy fitting in the updated stuff that's why it was consuming much battery.

     

    Other fellows have suggested different things in other forums but here's one about the 6.1.3.

    I hope it offers help to you and many other fellows.

    iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.3, 3 sets

    New iphone4 preloaded with with iOS 6.1, purchased 1 week ago, following all of the advice in this thread (re turn off push, exhange, location services, iCloud, Safari, bluetooth, calenders etc) 2hr usage and 23hr standby to go from 100% to 10%.

     

    A few hours ago I purchased/loaded app called 'System Status' and it's finding 2milllion plus page faults in 5hr 20 mins since installation. Doesn't sound right? (maybe memory leak somewhere in iOS?)

     

    (Have screen grabs if I can work out how to load them here!)

    Hi Pizza98704,

     

    I've tried the solution u stated. currently usage is at 32 mins and is already 93%. on minimal usage though. And may i know what u meant by give it a few days to calibrate? do i still apply the steps above or just charge whenever it's is low?
