Hello, I recently bought an iPhone 5, however in the last two days, the battery has been draining extremely quick, and now within 1 minutes is Internet, I lose 8%, what do you think is wrong?

iPhone 4, iPhone 4- 5.0.1

    You posted in the iPad forum instead of the iPhone forum. To get answers to your question, next time post in the proper forum. See https://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa  I'll request that Apple relocate your post.

     

     Cheers, Tom

    Check for iOS updates

     

    Streaming music is very battery intensive

     

    You can run the battery to 0% and then fully charge and then evaluate performance.

     

    Also, delete the facebook/fb messenger apps as it has been mentioned that those apps do use more battery.

    Take it to Apple store or talk to your carrier.

     

    The phone is doing something, CPU or cellular radio-related, it's impossible to know because we cannot see what you do with your phone.

     

    Do you use 3G/Data services for extended periods of time?

    Then goto the maker or provider, I don't know of a resolution for this other than completely erasing your phone.
