    Thanks Lyxlot for the post about the SIM card fix. My battery was visibly draining. It went down a percentage point a minute. I removed the sim and blew out the sim space with a dust off air spray. The fast drain stopped. I'm waiting to see what kind of slow drain I'll get now.

    The sim didn't do it. Drain continued just slightly slower. I tried turning off the battery percentage and that stopped the drain. The percentage itself is a bug in the ios. With percentage turned off I'm still at 75% (just an estimating because percent is off) at 4pm, where I'd usually be at 20%. I've tried other things so I'm not exactly sure that did it, but the battery gain did happen immediately after I turned percentage viewing off in the settings:general:usage.

    Fantastic article!

    I didn't see any specifics on Bluetooth and GPS.    My son's both have the 5S and both bluetooth and GPS turn on if you allow location services within any App.  I have the iPad mini with Cellular and when ever my battery starts draining too fast, it's the first thing I check.  It is almost always my bluetooth turned on, and I never use it.

    BlueTooth uses no power at all, unless you have a BlueTooth device actually connected. And then it uses only 3 MW. So it has no effect on battery life. GPS also uses no power on its own; it's just a radio receiver. However, if GPS is on it can trigger apps which might use power. You should NEVER turn GPS (Location Services) off; if it is off then Find my iPhone will not work. You can turn off the use of Location Services by individual apps if you don't want them to use it.

    I tried everything which this article asks me to do, except visiting apple store.

    I have exactly the same problems with you guys. And one more. I have a problem connecting the charger to the iphone. I have to think like: hey what MacGyver would do if he had the same problem and try to charge it.And this happens twice per day. When the 3G is connected the battery sign turn to countdown mode. And lasts UP TO (as it says in the site) 1.30 hour. And all these after paying 700 euros to purchase it an after one year of usage (note: end of guarantee) and since it cant be fixed i have to spend another 300 euros in order for my carrier to replace it with an new one.....

    The point is that there are so many users that have the similar problem and no one from apple cares. They keep being silent. They used to care about their customers but now......

    i have the same problem and till now i didn't find a solution , this besides the wi fi problem

  • litoque Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    If you are experiencing battery draining fast, (fast is, if your phone won't last for a day without charging) your iphone 5 is already defective, particularly the U2 IC.   I just have mine replaced by a technician and it's back to normal of about 3 days, nice right?  Cost is around $100, ouch!

    You should have it replaced immediately if under warranty.

    I am experiencing this 'battery draining fast' for a year now until it went totally dead.

    An alternative solution is to use power banks so your iphone can last for a day.

  • jonc172 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well I have just had my iPhone 5 battery replaced by Apple under their iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program.  If your phone meets their criteria they will replace the battery free of charge with a 90 day warranty.  To see if your phone qualifies, check here.

    Good luck!
