    No diagnostics app, just the reports viewed at General>About>Diagnostics & Usage>Diagnostic & Usage Data. Interestingly, reactivating Safari, the rogue bookmarks are still there but the battery drain seems "normal" and no further reports have been generated. Too early to say if its all settled down, if its a consquence of the myriad of other actions I've taken this week or the 6.01 patch. Time will tell.


    Still can't delete the bookmarks though.

    Left off over night after full charge.  Now at 0 battery and recharging.  Went to 0 with no use at all.  Not happy at all.  Usually only takes about 2 hours to go from full charge to empty, which almost makes it useless.  Really expected Apple to have fixed this issue with the update.  Really want to avoid having to set up again as a new phone as that takes so much time and didn't work anyway.

    Do you have backup to iCloud enabled? If so how much content have you got to backup?

    JezzaG have you tried deleting the book marks from the mac / pc control panel?


  • JezzaG Level 1 (65 points)

    Sadly, my imac is too old for Lion / Mountain Lion and replacement is several months away. So, no, can't do it. Interestingly those bookmarks do not appear on my ipad, only the iphone.

  • Kelly Moller Level 1 (15 points)

    yes, backs up to icloud, and did so fine until after the ios6 update

    Some interesting reading, not really using the cloud for bookmark syncing..

  • Player8 Level 1 (20 points)

    That's supposed to read, "not really using iCloud for bookmark syncing myself."

    Did you restore a backup after the update? If so go to settings>general>reset and select "Reset All Settings" When reboot select "setup as new". This will leave your apps and data intact and just reset all the settings. Of course then you need to go back and turn off the items in notifications,system settings,locations,diagnostics&data, etc that are not needed.

  • sbailey4 Level 1 (25 points)

    Can you compare what your uncle has on his device against what you have? And Yes a good idea to take it for exchange  since its so new. However, if thee are certain apps you are running and you install those on the new device you will have the same results most likely (unless in fact there is a hardware issue) Its not the iOS 6 itself but rather service area, certain apps, certain configuration etc. most likely causing your issue. A factory reset and leave it as such would tell the tell. If it remains poor outofbox then you know. if its ok then you need to find the offending app or configuration setting causing the issue. Sorry but unfortunatly about all you can do. Its a known fact that the system services (most not needed, only cell,compass, maybe traffic should be on) and diag and usage (also not needed) and too many notifications/locations (every app you have installed wants to turn this on) will cause these issues as well as poor configuration exchange email account. Anyway keep us posted if you try again with this advice before Sunday or after Sunday when you visit the Apple store.

    Was very excited about the new update (6.0.1) only because there was a small part of me that thought they would fix the battery issues. Boy was I wrong. My 4S still drains at same rate and my phone still says I'm constantly using it (right now it is at 93% after a FULL CHARGE and all I did was play some poker for ten minutes, Usage: 56 min, Standby: 57 min). Stupid. Going down to Apple Store on Sunday and demanding a new phone. My 4S isn't even 5 months old. I can't take it anymore. My Uncle, with a two year old iPhone 4, is getting amazing battery on iOS 6: Usage: 8 hrs 48 min, Standby: 2 days, 18 hrs. I just want the same;or at the very least not have to literally worry about my phone dying throughout the entire day of school (and have it last just as long).

    i just tried this suggestion i found on tidbits



    seems to work....

  • teacherosb Level 1 (10 points)

    Seems we all agree the ios 6 is draining the battery. I have everything shut off that I possibly can on the iphone 4S and still it loses power by leaps and bounds. My phone isn't even 3 mos old. My iPad used to hold a charge for 2 weeks of heavy daily use. Now with the ios 6 I am down to 90% within hours! The other day I turned off the iPad at 90%. When I turned it back on it read 100%. What gives???

    I too hoped that the 6.0.1 download would improve the battery. The iPad was 100% twelve hours ago and went down 10% in standby mode w/o being used. I guess 6.0.1 was a waste of my time.

    Yea, I've actually done a factory restore 4 times now, and nothing has helped. Set up as new phone, all that jazz.

  • 1/4 scale Level 1 (0 points)

    Try this and let us know if it works:


    My solution is: settings>>>mail, contacts, calendars>>>fetch new data. Then turn OFF "push" and set fetch to "hourly" or "manually." I think the push feature with the iOS6 is the killer. Perhaps this has been fixed with iOS6.0.1 but I haven't installed it yet. I now have no less than 70% at the end of the day under normal use.

  • Player8 Level 1 (20 points)

    Was using that on iOS6, doesn't seem to be required for iOS6.0.1. I had mine on push for a whole day yesterday and battery was life was very good.
