  • WhatUpLo Level 1 Level 1

    I have the Iphone 4s and my phone doesn't even charge as fast as it used to.  I've noticed I left it charging for about 5-10 mins and it only goes up about 2-3% less than it used to charge up.  I'm new to this Iphone world but I should've never upgraded to ios5.1.  Worst decision I've made.  Not cool Apple.  Makes me very leary of your next upgrade!

    My phone does not charge as fast as it used to, and also it gets overheated after each use or during the charging. i have no idea what to do with it...

    Hi Everyone!


    Just to share the information with you guys:

    I have upgrade it to IOS5.1 last friday, and then drain it to 7% -> then reset all settings-> then full charge to 100%

    My battery holds almost 3 days, sometimes WIFI on, Edge+3G also sometimes, when i need it. Everything else are off. i have a 4S. I can feel a bit of a battery increase.



  • OlliHappyOnMac Level 1 Level 1

    I've found out something what causes the battery to drain:


    it's iCloud!


    Take a look at the mobile data trafific NOT using a WLAN-Connection. It adds approx. 1 kB of data traffic per second. This drastically reduces battery-life.


    Disabling the services (Mail, Calendar.. find my iPhone etc) in iCloud doesn't help!

    You have to delete the Account to stop this!!!


    Rememeber to disable WLAN and enable "mobile Data" to cause data traffic to use 3G that you can monitor,

  • c_da_soldier Level 1 Level 1

    I just stopped receipt of email notifications, mostly because I'm no longer having an issue. I disabled

    iCloud immediately after noticing a problem. Hopefully more take this advice (maybe, only uplink to iCloud on vacation?? it ***** to disable a service but, eh, I don't use it, personally) and, God bless I guess

    I am in no way an Apple basher but there is no reason that I should have to spend one to two hours to fix a problem they caused. For those of you that blames the users....wake up. I bought a new phone with features I would like to use. Why should I have to turn them off so I can use the phone?  How can you blame users when my iPhone and iPad 2 worked just fine until I updated to 5.1. Now i watch both of them lose battery power just watching the power indicator.

    You can't blame the apps I use or anything else. It all worked fine before the update.

    Upgrade made mine MUCH WORSE.  In fact, it was fine before, and is now terrible.  Does anybody else feel like Apple is dodging its customers on this one? Why haven't we heard anything official from them yet?  Seems there are enough people out there that are having issues to warrant a response from them!

  • DisruptiveSpirit Level 1 Level 1

    I'm with many of you. My battery was bad before but worse now. And I'm not one who texts and stuff much. In fact, I may actually make calls/receive calls like once every few weeks, text like 5-10 times a day and play a few games about 4 times a day. I fully charged my phone last night and am less than half down now. Didn't make or get any calls today, sent only 4 texts today, and played Draw Something twice. Why in the heck should it be more than half dead just doing that? And no, I don't have stuff running in the background. No icloud, etc. With all the money we spend on these phones, we should never have issues like this. Hope a REAL fix comes faster than this supposed one did.

  • Leahmurch Level 1 Level 1

    I COMPLETY DISAGREE. Before this update I'd go to bed with 100% and wake up at 23%.

    Now with the update I used my phone throughout the day and never fell below 50%.

    Am I the only one who got good results here?

  • Sasikashakila1992 Level 1 Level 1

    I would like to share my experiance.

    I updated to 5.1

    Then there were no loss of data or change of settings.Simply it was rstored from my bckup.

    Then there was no change to the battery,it was draining as bad as it was with 5.0.1.


    Then I restored the phone and did "set ups as a new phone"

    Then didnt turn anything off,let it be in its factory settings.Now since three days,im experiancing a very god battery life.Now at the end of the day the battery is at 84% with over 12 hours of standby and 3 hours of usage.

    Hope this helps.And I had my 3G off,used wifi.

    I suggest to those who are still being trashed by battery issues to restore the phone as a new one.


  • irainbow_chic Level 1 Level 1

    My battery life is terrible now, it was horrible before and it's even worse now. I had a fully charged phone when I woke up and all I have don't is read a few posts on here and check my Facebook and I'm down to 84%. Not cool apple, not cool. At this rate I believe this will be my last iPhone.

  • Andrei Morar Level 1 Level 1

    I updated to 5.1, fully charged the Iphone4 today at 8 am and now at 3.00 pm after 7 hours of stand-by time I have 83% battery left. My phone usage is 2 hours and 5 minutes. The phone was on 3G all aof the time, Wifi and Bluetooth were on for the entire day.


    Normally I get 2 full days of usage on 3G, with Wifi and Bluetooth constantly on and close to 4 days on 2G also with Wifi and Bluetooth on.


    After the update to 5.1 I set up the Iphone as a new phone and did a full reset in Settings.

    So much for testing.


    How can they push out crap updates like this. 


    Windows 8 platform looking better with each crap update. 

  • Snapple69 Level 1 Level 1

    Is it possible to rollback this garbage update?

  • GR33397 Level 1 Level 1

    It's called a jailbreak. However, by doing so, you will voi your warranty, cause it is obviously illegal. But they are some positive sides to it also.
