    Lithium Ion batteries do not get a battery memory, this has no affect on batter drain...

  • keg150 Level 1 Level 1

    Yeah thats very good battery life IMO. Can you attached a screen shot of your usage?

  • mollahg Level 1 Level 1


    how to get the screenshot (not expert pl)?

  • keg150 Level 1 Level 1

    The reply message from your phone only allows you to do basic text, doens't give you options like it does on your computer. The easiest way for you to do this is....


    Take a screenshot of your usage menu ( Hold SLEEP Button and HOME Button down at the same time till your screen flashes and you hear a camera sound).


    Email that photo to your email address.


    Go to this discussion on your computer, download photo from your email and when you reply to my message there is a camera icon on here to where you can attach a photo to your post.

    I would say my iPhone 5 is draining 25% faster since I updated the 6.0.1. I thought my batter life sucked before, it's WAY freakin worse now

    I wish apple would own up to the battery life shenanigans and fix the dam problem.

    As a trainee, I messed-up the data. When I tried to get the screenshot (Hold home & sleep button together), the phone restarted and all the usage data has gone. It is now showing usage data will be shown aftere full charge of the phone.

    Men, next time......):

    But, I am still at 50% charge. Hope I am in excellent shape. But, sorry for you guys trouble.

  • keg150 Level 1 Level 1

    Well that *****, I should of said hold it down....really just need to press the sleep button then the home button at the same time, it should be instatnly when you do it. All well, next time I guess...

  • Shuds Level 1 Level 1

    I am having battery problems on three iphones: an iphone 4 (3 months old) and two iphone 3gs. On average 4-5 hours from fully charged to flat. All have happened since install of IOS 6. Have tried to roll back to IOS 5.1.1 but blocked by Apple. I have tried the battery cycle routine. Disabled as many apps as possible. Done factory restores of the IOS. As new phone.   None of this works. We are two months past your original post... No word from Apple. They have recently released an IOS 6 upgrade with no reference to the power issue. PS. The upgrade did not help the power drain problems. I have reverted to using an old motorola razr from the junk box out of desperation just to have a phone that lasts the day. Is there a solution out there???

    just bought iphone 4s before 7-8 days and updated iOS 6 then started battery draining problem. as reading this forum... done all suggestions.... finally got my problem solved.


    Download new IOS 6.0.1 then restored as new iphone and my problem is solved.

  • mjanuszewski Level 1 Level 1

    For all those, who still do have problems with battery drain. Even with full restore and other "fixes". Try full battery discharge, charge up to 100% and keep on charge for about an hour. Repeat the cycle a few times. My battery's life much better now.

  • KerryXEX Level 1 Level 1

    I'm still on the first charge after the full restore. I loaded all my apps and set everything as before, all location services, notifications, WLAN, BT, 3G are ON.


    Still on 39% after 30 hours (usage 4.5 hrs). Hope it stays that way...

    Updated to iOS 6.0.1 yesterday and have had the same battery drain issues and have recharged my iphone 4a four times in 24 hrs. I came across a mention earlier in this thread about Facebook possibly being the problem so I deleted FB and then reinstalled it through the settings page. Success! I have only gone through 2% battery in the past two hours instead of two minutes :-) Very happy now.

  • kunist Level 1 Level 1

    thanks pehico for the tip!  I also had massive battery drain and the phone was running really hot!  A Californian Hand Warmer... (4s with iOS 6.0.1). Removed iCloud on the iPhone, reinstalled iCloud, problem solved.

    In settings/iCloud try deleting iCloud account then sign back in to it. Worked for me!!
