    In my Settings where 6.1.2 is listed as available, it says "Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life."


    Ha! That's the first I've seen of an admission of battery issues. Since I don't have an Exchange account I'm thinking I'll skip this for now.

    The iOS 6.1.2 is for security purpose too. Apple was Hacked.

  • DarrylR Level 1 (10 points)

    Do not skip it. Apple was hacked and the iOS 6.1.2 is for security purpose too.

    sorry to say I still having the same problem after the upgrade......


  • DarrylR Level 1 (10 points)

    I have updated and have not had no problems with either updates. I have the IPad 2 and 4.

  • DarrylR Level 1 (10 points)

    While I can't say that there are no security fixes in iOS 6.1.2, Apple makes no mention of them and they are usually very explicit about what they've addressed.  I can, however, guaranteed that iOS 6.1.2 has absolutely nothing to do with the recently-reported security breach at Apple which was due to malware exploiting the vulnerabilities in Java.

    the ios 6.1.2 update doesnt work.. as I expected!

  • Janet108 Level 1 (0 points)

    maybe you need to give it some time, let the battery run dead and charge?

    (and this is precisely why I'm waiting to update, don't want my phone to get worse - if that's even possible!)

    You probably need to double-check your settings. Both my iPhone 4S and iPad Mini are operating normally. Something (other than the Apple SNAFU) is eating your battery!


    Keep on reading...I'm sure somebody has an answer?

    So far, not so good, @Maribsb83.

    I think it's draining even faster, but I didn't complete the charge. Tomorrow I'll give you an update on this.

    Hi, all


    I did a factory reset of my 4S yesterday (before the release of 6.1.2) and followed the advice not to restore from a back up instead starting as a new phone. 


    It worked.


    Obviously this is extremely inconvenient.  I lost my camera roll, have to download and confidgure all my apps, etc and had to re-enter all my email accounts etc. Fortunately icloud meant my contacts and iWork documents were not affected.


    One change I did notice.  Prior to the reset, I could eliminate the overheating and improve battery perfomance by disabling cellular data. Since the reset the I've noticed that the cellular data settings (Setting -> General) have changed in name from "Cellular Data" previously to "Mobile Data" now.  This was with iOS 6.1.1 before the reset and 6.1.1 after the reset. Not sure why this is the case.


    In any case my battery perfomance is much better than it has been for quite a while. General perfomance of the phone also seems a tad faster, but I could be imagining that.

    I have an ipad 2, my husband has the iPhone 4 and I have the 4s my problem lies with the 4s. My battery dies quick but that's manageable, I am however starting to get really irritated with my phone shutting off when there is 10% battery left. I installed the latest update 6.2.2 And it has done nothing. The phone doesn't tend to get hot unless I'm talking on the phone or when it's charging. I've had problems with this phones battery since buying it. Of course sprint is a bunch of turds and the closest apple is over an hour away. Anyone have any solutions for the phone shutting off before the percentage goes to 1%?

  • Kristin22 Level 1 (0 points)

    I posted a few days ago. I have a 4s and my battery drains at the rate of 1% per minute. very handy.

    I did the update last night. no change.

    I refuse to erase and reset my iphone. I don't want to lose data. I've backed it up on my computer and in the cloud, but still, I shouldn't (we all shouldn't) have to go through all that. Apple, have you chimed in on this issue yet? The 6.1.2 update didn't fix the problem.

  • DarrylR Level 1 (10 points)

    All I can say is work with the battery don't charge it to 100% try 50% to see if you can get it back in cycle. A battery has a 1000 cycle on a full 100% charge.
