My battery drains on usage. Like 1% every 3-4 minutes. On standy by it holds the charge. I recently upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 6.1.3
My batter stats are these at most.
Usage : 6 hours.
Standy: 1 Day 12 hours.
Is this normal.

it depends on what you use .i use music much of the time which wont cause battery draining at rapid rate ,and 2 hours of chatting , few minutes of call .
my total usage is around 9 to 10 hours.
when i use it on 3G i will get it around 6 hours.
i think its pretty normal.

My new iPad drains at that rate, too. 1% every three minutes. I'm new to Apple and it's a WiFi only 4th gen model that came with 6.1.3 installed. The next day I saw a notification for an update to 6.1.4 and decided to go through with it. I can definitely say that I get less battery life now.

I don't know how. You cannot install 6.1.4 to an iPad, it is for the iPhone 5 only.

Funny enough, by accident I found an interesting point.
Because of some travel issued I drained my iPhone down to 1%. But it lastet for over 5 hours of operation with this 1% power left. After this I tested it by purpuse, and yes it is reproducable... 4-5 hours medium work with the last 1% :-)
Can it be that only the calibration of the battery is the problem and the full remaining power is wrong ... ?
Can anyone else test this with his phone ... ?

Quite possible. Apple does recommend that you run your phone down until it powers itself off, the charge it to the full 100%, every month or so, purely to maintain the calibration of the battery readout. The battery doesn't care.

I bought iphone 4 2 days back. Previously i have Iphone 3G & never faced any battery issue. Now with new iphone 4 with ios 6.1.3, the battery is getting drained so faster , which is not expected at all.. need a fix soon.

I have this same issue! my phone is draining battery so fast, its actually crazy! it is always fully charged morning at around 8:30 and by 12:00, when i get off of "work" (cit stuff!) it is usually around 70-55% battery. Keep in mind that it is on during this time, but it is put away and all apps (except messages) are in use. SO in three hours, around 30-45% battery is drained from it just sitting around. You are alowed to ask for a replacement phone for this issue, correct??

I am experiencing same problems on a 1 year old iphone 4S w/ iOS 6.1.3. Full charge over night depelted to 35% after a full day of work where the phone was used minimally (probably 20 texts sent/received). This charge at the end of the day is a slight improvement, now that I have turned off location services, siri, returned fetch times and screen brightness.
I have also tried the fix that involves turning off all e-mail/icloud-esque services and soft-restarting the phone, this did not seem to help. Also tried a factory reset to no avail. A freind of mine has the same phone and has spectacular battery life -- almost two days with normal usage.
Have been googling around on the issue and it seems rampant.
Have we heard anything from Apple yet?

I have an iPad 2 that's about 1.5 years old. My battery is either very worn down, or this stupid iOS screw up that is causing my battery to drain so fast ( or the battery isn't calibrated ) that I don't even get the 5% remaining message. Then when I charge it takes a good 10 mins to start up, then displays 1%. Strange.

******* Battery drain issue resolved ***********************
I tried following easy steps and my iphone4 with version 6.1.3 battery has terribly improved. It last one complete day without recharing, no need to turn off wifi, bluetooth or celluar data
- Download an app for deleting multiple contacts at once, i used free app "contactclean"
- Delete duplicate conatcts, I just deleted for alphabets A and B
- Restart Iphone
- Charge it to 100% and check the battery life
This worked extremely well in my case. Hope this helps .....

I unplugged my 4S from the charger at 11:30 AM today, the only task I made it do was play Doodle Jump for 5 mins. The phone hit 0% at 3:30PM.
I have turned off almost every single feature off, I was so excited about getting my iPhone a few months ago, Now I'm considering switching to the Galaxy S3, the battery life is that bad.

It really would be nice to be able to downgrade in times like this...at least within the major releases. I've used Apple products literally my whole life. Internet in its "public" infancy, watching in wonder as my best friends big brother was droppin' their rotary phone receiver on what I now know of as a modem...Back when a "piracy" was better known as a friend being a nice guy. Companies made a name for themselves for releasing quality, creative products. The commercials that apple ran of the authoritative/drone PC world...Amazing that now you have to shut off your device now days, and wait for the overlord to bestow a possible fix on you, like mana from their apple shaped cloud. Just wait, today its a "free" upgrade/fix...Tomorrow what is public today, may become an in-device-purchase... gotta pay to idpshsh it.. just to fix that battery problem....hope the public we be decides against this... soon... it would be nice to quickly fix this drainage problem....
