    I let my phone (iPhone 5 btw) drain completely until it turned off and then charged it to 100%. Then I let it sit idling all night again and saw a 9% drain in less than 8 hours. So this hasn't resolved the issue.


    If you are having WiFi issues after the update, try resetting your phone (settings -> general -> reset -> erase all content and settings). Make sure you have a backup first obviously.  I had severe wifi issues after the upgrade similar to some described here and a full reset resolved it.


    I could try iOS 6.1 B4 since I have a dev account with Apple.  Has anyone tried this yet?

    For me, after a complete charge from 1% to 100%, it seems to be better. But i can't say if it's really solved the problem...

    Add me, too. I just got my iPhone 5 and it prompted me to update to 6.0.2 immediately, which I did. Sending and receiving 20-30 texts per day and not even using the actual phone, it was drained to 8% by mid-evening after a full charge in the morning. I turned off Bluetooth a couple of days ago, but that helped nothing.

    Same issue here. Battery significantly worse. Please fix

  • Jakeman007 Level 1 Level 1

    I just got off the phone with Apple support....the guy there said they know nothing about any battery issues.  I went to bed with 100% and woke up with applications were running, I have iTunes Match and iCloud turned off.  I also have WiFi turned off.  In the past it would drop maybe 1-2%....sometimes none.


    In 2 hours at work, with my phone on airplane has already dropped 4%. This is insane.  I should have never updated to 6.0.2 since I rarely use WiFi.......that is what I get for plugging into iTunes and just blindly updating.

    My battery was draining very fast under iOS 6.0.1, but the problem was a third party App. Apple support identified the problem in Settings > General > About > Diagnostics & Usage. A RESET TO FACTORY CONDITION SOLVED THE PROBLEM. I then updated to iOS 6.0.2 and battery appears to be fine — certainly much better than before.

    1% per hour drop at idle is normal.  More than that and you could worry.

  • .zaph. Level 1 Level 1

    Apple's spec say 225h idling which is less than 0.5% per hour.  I got close to that before the update.

  • proudmom_of_2 Level 1 Level 1

    Mine is draining like crazy too. I went to bed with it at 72%, idling, and it was drained by morning. It's been this way for the past 2 day since I updated. I really hope Apple rolls out an update to it soon!

  • Patrick Vaughn Level 1 Level 1

    I'm also having severe bettery drain issues with my iPhone 5 after upgrading the software.  Hopefully they will come out with a fix for this soon!

  • muka3d Level 1 Level 1

    Same here. Battery dropped about 20% overnight despite not using it and having push disabled. Battery is being eaten up much, much faster now especially when idle. Usually it makes it overnight with only one or two percent drop.


    Using iPhone 5, updated to iOS 6.0.2 from 6.0.1 over the air.

  • tappella Level 1 Level 1

    It is also draining the battery of my iPhone 5 after this update.
    Also, I haven't noticed any problems with my wifi. However, iOS 6 really hurted the Wifi of my iPad 2 and this update doesn't have nothing to do with old devices... didn't get it.

  • bobackz Level 1 Level 1

    My battery is draining quickly as well. I have a 4S and updated recently.

  • MidwayFlux Level 1 Level 1

    I've reset Network Settings and Restored my iPhone.. Just yesterday I allowed it to drain to Zero Battery, and let it stay that way for about 3 hours or so. Charged it to 100% and then let it stay charging for another hour after that. Woke up this morning, with zero apps running, and it was at 88%. Also, again, was using AT&T LTE, showing full bars, and couldn't get a connection in Instagram, Safari, Mail, Facebook, or the tumblr apps.. This Update might have fixed Fi-Fi problems, but it's made a number of other things a lot worse.. Not good.
