    Thank for your input!!  I hope apple fixes this battery issue soon.... I'm about to give up on apple lol!  If I want bad battery life I can get an android with better features!!

    I don't notice any changes in battery life so far, but then again I  manually close opened apps in the multitasking bar at least once a day.

    My battery keeps draining even though my iphone 4 is plugged in. And it's draining quickly!

    Thank braid 123 I do the same with mine. Only time and use will tell!  :)

    Yes something is massively eating battery life in 6.0.  I have a 4S, and I had great battery life.  8AM-5PM workday and I would have 50%+ life left.


    I just upgraded to 6.0 last night and charged is 2:20PM and I have 9% battery left without even touching my phone more than a few times today.  I literally just watched the phone go from 15% to 9% in the last 10 minutes.

    Yes. I'm having issues as well. I had battery issues before iOS 6 and it hasn't gotten any better and possibly a bit worse. It really ****** me off because Apple stated that iOS 6 was supposed to improve battery life. I've seen the same thing with my MacBook Air after the last two software updates.

    I had the same issue and noticed that my GPS was still on, after exiting the Maps app.  A simple reboot of the phone solved the issue and battery drain.

    Ok kool thanks for the advice. I'll try rebooting my iPhone :)

    I have an iphone 4. Similar problems. Check Settings/Privacy/Location Services/System Services (scroll to the bottom) ios6 turned these all on for me.  I turned off Genius for Apps, Location-Based iAds, Traffic, and Maps from Location Services.   Also check Settings/General/Cellular, I turned off iTunes, Passbook Updates, & Reading List. Also reboot your phone (turn it off/on). My battery life has seemed to improve.  Try turning the need ones on (one at a time) and see how it affects battery life.

    I'm suffering the same problem today.  Put my phone on charge last night and woke up to find it at only 75%.  Before I left the office it was dead but no iOS 6 for me, just some app updates that stated they included 6 support.  Same deal on my iPad too!

    hi thanx for the info but all these i tried yesterday only but no good outcome.i think hv to wait for new patch for this

  • beauinla Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, Rapid battery drain. iPhone 4 updated to iOS6 over the air today. By noon, a fully charged battery was down to 12%, with only a couple of emails and two brief phone calls.  On a normal day, I would be down to about 70%. 

  • Eoin O'Kane Level 1 (35 points)

    Same here. Significant issues with the battery. Have done a factory reset and let the battery fully drain.


    Am going to run it with mobile data (cellular data in US).


    Love new stuff.

    Hate the sucky outcome.
