    the battery life is amazingly shorttt...

    its not lasting 1 full day..

    I think the problem is in the IOS 5 coz even in standby it is being drained as ****..

    my Iphone 4 had much better battery life..


    I think a new update from Apple must come out soon to increase the battery life..


    Or we all will have a big problem

    My battery drains even when just sitting.   I tried all the fixes and it still drains 15% per hour.

    I have an IPhone 4 to compare, 4S does at 15% per hour; called apple support, nice 'technical adviser' explained that I can send the 4S for replacement but it be a refurbish one that I did refused. Any ideas?

    Apple has acknowledged battery draining issues with iOS 5 and has since released a beta version of iOS 5.0.1 to developers, indicating a public release is due soon. The update aims to fix iOS 5 battery problems without modifications of settings, bring multitasking gestures to iPad 1 without the third party tweak, and resolve several other bugs and issues that shipped with iOS 5.

    I had a iphone 4 running ios 5 and i saw a marked reduction in battery life, i have since moved to the 4S as it has a slightly larger capacity battery and the power drainage has been phenominal i have read many forums and turned off many location based services and this has helped slightly.


    I found that the location based reminders drained the battery at a phemoninal rate as the GPS was consistently on and i sadly urge no one to use this app until something improves.


    Furthermore i have also noticed a issue surrounding the display of cellular network and it's signal strength i am with Three UK and i have found in tube tunnels i have full signal but try and place a call or do anthing requiring cellular data and you see you have no signal and in places where i have full signal normally i have no bars but i'm abel to call and use cellular data..


    The display seems very hit and miss...


    I urge Apple to release an update as i did once have a HTC Desire HD and i exchanged than phone pronto as the battery life was appaling and if this problem with the 4S continues i will be considering moving to another platform for my mobile needs.


    I acknowledge demonshunters comment in regard to 5.0.1 and i hope this is a fix.. and i wonder if you could tell me if there are any updates to how the software displays cellular signal?


    Many Thanks,

    I've updated to iOS5.1 in the last hour after charging to 100% my battery has gone down by 10%

    When you say "The display seems very hit and miss"  are you referring to:


    Where I press my finger on the display it doesn't seem to register at that location?


    I was playing MyTowns2 and i'm finding that when i want to collect coins, it doesn't locate properly.

    I figured it was only the game, so i tried iSlash.  I find that where I press doesn't corroborate with where it displays on the screen.

    My friend told me to do a full restore on my iPhone n I did that yesterday. Standby time is 16 hours 19 mins and real time usage is 2 hours 15 mins an the battery life is now 70 percent. Is this bad or normal cause te usage time is still very little as I only use it to do some simple messaging. I turned off push mail functions, brightness is very low, removing background apps, no location settings, not sending user usage to apple. As I type this reply, battery just dropped by 1 percent. It makes me feel so annoyed because I really love the iPhone N the battery life is not doing us justice!

    Maybe you guys should try restoring the phone and do a full battery draining and recharge?

    Having the same issue. I just bought my iPhone 4s a few days ago and this is very disappointing. Where's the update to fix this problem?

  • robinom Level 1 (0 points)

  • breezyfajita Level 1 (0 points)

    Hey Terpatx I'm having the same battery life problem too, did you end up solving it?

  • SKriheli Level 1 (0 points)

    Unfortunately, same here with iPhone 4s iOS 5.1.1

    My battery drains really fast. At night (6-7 hours) it drains something like 20% at stand by.

    That's very dissapointing, and I have no idea what to do. Tried to restore and stuff, nothing helps.


    Any advices?
