    Yes the display stays on forever unless I manually lock the screen.  I have it set to 1 minute in the settings.

    That is plain weird. I think you should call Apple tech support and get help with that one. Maybe it simultaneously help fix the other issues.

    I fully charged my phone as soon as I installed iOS 6.0.1.

     

    So far I am at:

     

    Usage: 6 hours, 19 minutes

    Standby: 18 hours, 42 minutes

    Battery level: 45%

     

    I've not tested whilst on the 3G network vs home Wifi, but I'd still say the above was pretty **** good.

     

    I will test on 3G once my battery dies, likely tomorrow.

    Call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but I think whats going on here is Apple is randomly setting devices to churn back usage data / diagnostics of the device and IOS6 and therefore this is killing some phones and not all them on the battery.

     

    So they release a patch and they turn off this data t/f and also explains why some p[epole have super high data use and others not.

     

     

    Could explain allot of the issues


    Apple?  really? would you do this?

  • stevebez Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ha ... well no one else seems to know *** is going on ... and this has not been raised as a possibility.

  • ski4 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    well 6.0.1 has not helped my battery life at all so far.  i was hopeful

  • Dizman7 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah so far not promising.  Started the day with 100%, currently at 75% with 1.5hrs of usage, so on pace for 6hrs total, not any better.

     

    Granted this is the first run since upgrading, I'll run it till it dies tonight then do a full charge and test some more on monday.  I wasn't expecting much, rather sour about this whole ordeal and have lost a lot of faith in the company.

     

    Had a co-worker with the problem say "It'll be fixed, we just have to wait" to which I said "Yes, I just have to wait ANOTHER MONTH or MORE to have a normal phone again like I did for the last FOUR years with the last two iPhones!".  Remember how we use to have iPhones that we bought and just used and never thought about battery life and didn't look at battery% every few mins?  How they "just worked"?  Those were the days.

  • ski4 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    yeah im down to 51% with 2 hours and 40 minutes usage and 6.5 on standy

    this may actually be worse than before the patch

    I'm having the same issue with my iPhone 4 (Verizon) using iOS 6.0.1 . I have done a search on the forums but can't find a solution. Please help as its effecting my wife's phone as well.

    Thank you

  • Doug Lerner2 Level 4 Level 4 (1,030 points)

    I know this hasn't worked for everyone, but it did work for me. So make sure you've at least tried it if you have upgraded from an older iPhone by restoring from your old iPhone's backup:

     

    (1) Reset as a new iPhone.

     

    (2) Then sync back your apps, music, photos, etc. via iTunes.

     

    You have to rearrange your app icons again, and also login again to places.

     

    But in my case it went from an iPhone 5 running warm-to-hot and draining within a few hours, to a cool iPhone 5 running the advertised 8 hours.

     

    Like I said, I do realize this is not everybody's solution. But I think it might be the solution for some people, if you currently are using an iPhone 5 restored from an older iPhone.

    Thank you for the quick reply Doug. Do you know if this will fix the battery issue. I'm losing lots in so little time.

  • Doug Lerner2 Level 4 Level 4 (1,030 points)

    What I know is that it fixed the battery issue for me.

     

    Again in my case I had originally set up my iPhone 5 not as "a new iPhone" but instead restored from my last iPhone 4's backup.

     

    That apparently brought in a bunch of stuff which were causing errors to be logged and the iPhone 5 was running warm to the touch, and the battery was draining in a disappointing 4 hours.

     

    After I reset everything and started "as a new iPhone" and then synced over everything from iTunes the iPhone 5 has been running cool (even when used non-stop for a couple of hours) and I have a screenshot showing that it is lasting almost 8.5 hours of usage (see screenshot).

     

    This has not been successful for some people though. And it might depend also on carrier for all I know. But it quickly and obviously and clearly made all the difference in the world in my case.

    THisis the battery since upgrading to 6.0.1. Not bad at all. But that said I didn't venture outdoors in to the world of cellular data. However this is the best battery life I've bad out of the phone.

     

    I am hoping tomorrow using 3G I can get a decent battery. Otherwise I think it might be game over for my iPhone 5.
