Seems like the iOS 6.0.2 was one of the worst updates. Seems like it not only drains the battery but also came with a set of new problems:

1. Drains battery significantly when idle. I use to loose 1 or 2% through the night and now it is close to 10% and surprisingly when I pick the phone in the morning and get past the lock screen the battery drops 5 to 10% instantaneously.

2. Uses Cellular data even when WiFi is available specially once the phone is in sleep mode.

3. Notifications from CNN, and some of the apps no longer show up on the lock screen. How can I tell ? iPad mini doesn't have the issues and I am seeing the notifications on the mini but none on my iPhone.


iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    All update does really is updates software. Then the human factor comes in. All those bad things are imposed by something like personal settings or changes that were done or made on the phone. You can try to fix those separately, for example for battery drain to reset all settings, May also fix problem number 3. Or you can try to reinstall software by restoring in itunes, setting up as new and you will see it work as it suppose to. By the way after update 5.1.1 my wife stopped cooking dinners, that was the worst update for me.

    I guess I left out a few things which is that all the troubleshooting techniques the basic ones include resetting network, settings restore, notifications settings, wifi, network, cellular reset etc..followed by the reset to factory settings and set up as the new phone were already performed. For someone like me who lives and breathes developing software any software update can be buggy and can break things than fix it if it was not tested well, which seems like this one went through the cracks. Also if the software is not compatible with previous backups then there is no point of releasing software and backing up your preferences specially if you have data stored including messages for the past n number of years and it is called backward compatibility..

     

    BTW I don't think there is any update that does not involve human factor since the software is developed by humans...

    Most important detail that you forgot to mention is that you are software developer. That I type of people do not care for help, usually, already made their mind and sorry, I would never started to attempt to help if I knew that detail. Have a great day!

    Here is support community for you developer.apple.com

  • nkv76 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Actually I was not looking for help , but was looking to see the number of people running into similar issues and if there was a pattern that was causing the current issues and isolated to something that includes the backup restore. The support community @ developer.apple.com is only for app store developers and doesn't deal with any of the OS related issues.

  • fromsouth Level 4 Level 4 (3,600 points)

    I got that as well as soon as, I looked at your previous similar posts after update to 6. You not looking for help you are looking for similarly minded individuals ( you call it pattern gently ). These are support forums thou. Once again I didn't realize what you looking for in your first post, and now I am very apologetic that I attempted to help.

    Same issue here. Spending about 2 Mb an hour of cellular data even when using wi fi. Didn't have that problem before updating to 6.0.2. So yeah, it's not only the battery draining thing but also this. We need a new update ASAP. Anyone else noticed this?

  • fromsouth Level 4 Level 4 (3,600 points)

    By the way I had similar question a while ago and here is how my quest ended.

    The notification apps you arent seeing in the lock mode are probably what is draining your battery, for some reason they are running in the background. I suggesst uninstalling these apps and reinstalling.  Put them back in notifications and you should see a improvement in your battery.  Just my experience with myself and friends and what we have done.  Hope it helps!

  • nkv76 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok so opened up a case with the following issues:

     

    1. Drains battery significantly when idle. I use to loose 1 or 2% through the night and now it is close to 10% and surprisingly when I pick the phone in the morning and get past the lock screen the battery drops 5 to 10% instantaneously.

    2. Uses Cellular data even when WiFi is available specially once the phone is in sleep mode.

    3. Notifications from CNN, and some of the apps no longer show up on the lock screen. How can I tell ? iPad mini doesn't have the issues and I am seeing the notifications on the mini but none on my iPhone.

    4. SMS from backup are not showing the details once the SMS is clicked. See attached image.

    5 Frequent reboots.

     

     

    So the SENIOR APPLE ADVISOR has a recommendation which is restore the phone as new as the backups can get corrupt and I have applications and SMSes from past two years. The SENIOR APPLE ADVISOR AT APPLE said that "ANYTHING CAN GO WRONG IN LIFE AND SO THE BACKUP"...so the solution is to not to use the backup any longer for folks who have done database migrations earlier this shouldn't be rocket science to migrate a SQL lite database as part of product upgrades Inspite of telling him that RESTORING THE PHONE AS NEW the 3 ISSUES STILL EXIST.

     

     

    GOOD TO HEAR THAT APPLE EMPLOYS PEOPLE LIKE THIS AS SENIOR ADVISORS.

  • fromsouth Level 4 Level 4 (3,600 points)

    let me get it straight.

    You are running SQL database lite on the back ground?

  • nkv76 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    No SQLLite is used for SMS storage I think based on the earlier versions of OS not sure if it is the same anymore but the point is that any restore from backup should work irrespective of the upgrade and if they can't support a successful restore from backup why even give an option.

  • fromsouth Level 4 Level 4 (3,600 points)

    Do you have same problem without it, lets say if you can bear for a day or so? And your point that any restore from back up should work is incorrect. Any software, including your back up can and does get corrupted.

  • nkv76 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok lets agree that I don't restore from backup which I have already tried and explained above that the first three issues still exist. Obviously 4 won't exist and reboot issue not noticed in the usage of 24 hrs.

     

    Yes I agree that it can get corrupt (don't disagree on that) but it is not since I can see the messages when I view the SMS but once I click i don't see it so it is definitely a way in which the summary view and detail views work..BTW I am not the only one with the issue on SMS...follow here https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4312771?start=30&tstart=0
