    Since I ran the past two upgrades (the latest being 6.1.1), both occurring within a day of each other, my battery life is terrible.  Forget what does my usage look like.  If I don't do anything other than turn my phone on, my phone heats up and my battery is completely drained within a couple of hours.  Since my iPhone 4s is my office (I live and work remotely), this is unacceptable.  I've read some posts where people are turning off Exchange...again, not acceptable when your iPhone 4s is your office.

     

    Is there a way to revert back a couple of releases to 6.0.1, so that I can have my phone back??

    I am also having the issue that since the iOS 6.1 update the battery of my iPhone 4 drains much quicker than before. All settings are the same as before. Now Apple has released the Update 6.1.1 for the 4S to take care of the problem.

    Apple please also look into it for the iPhone 4... we are also affected!

    6.1.1 has killed my battery life. iPhone 4S was FINE until the update. I use it for business and this is totally rediculous.

     

    Faux pas seem to be the new norm at Cupertino.

    I managed to get my battery life back to where it was after upgrading to 6.1.1 by doing the following:

     

    Delete all email accounts (in my case this was iCloud and Exchange)

     

    Reboot the phone

     

    Reinstall my email accounts

     

    Reboot the phone

     

    it now seems to work fine.

     

    Kind a pain to have to have gone through the removal of my accounts to fix the problems caused by an update!!

    Hi. I want to share my expericence.

     

    I have a iPhone 4,I updated to 6.1, and my battery started draining very fast.

     

    I did all the obivious things, shut down all apps, restarted the phone, etc.... but with no effect.

     

    I then tried starting up the Google Maps app and turned the GPS locater/tracker on (I tapped the little arrow in the bottom left corner). I then quit Google Maps app, and now the battery life is back to normal. Go figure!

     

    I don't know why my phone is back to normal, but it is! It my help others, it's worth a try.
