    Myself and my partner both have an iPhone 5 - both running iOS 6.0.2 and have noticed no change at all in battery life.

     

    Elimination tells me that 6.0.2 isnt the definitive issue otherwise 100% of users would have the issue. There is something else at work here beyond our comprehension.

    Add me to the list of Iphone 5's w/IOS 6.0.2 that cannot connect to wifi and have poor battery life.  6.0.1 wouldn't connect to my office wifi either.  My Ipad 1 and all other devices connect just fine.

    This solution worked for me. Found it in another discussion. Anyhow, it has worked for two days since I did it. Just followed the instructions outlined below:

    I've been having this exact same issue after upgrading from 6.0.1 to 6.0.2 on my iPhone 5. I called Apple Support, and they fixed it for me. Here are the steps:

     

    Solution:

    This is what Apple Support told me to do:

    Close all of my apps (using the app switcher; double tap home, press and hold an icon, click the red close button)

    Go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings. (Does NOT delete apps or any data; just resets network/iOS settings)

    Wait for phone to restart.

    Charge it up to 100% and monitor.

     

    After doing this, my iPhone 5 with 6.0.2 has been working perfectly and battery levels are great (12 hours of standby only uses 1%).

    Wow I actually tried everything I cannot seem to find a fix for this firmware 6.0.2 I hoping apple will give us an update soon. Even tried going back to 6.0.1 seem like no joy at all.

    Just a confirmation that, for me, it seems I am experiencing high battery drain with 6.0.2.

    FYI, I have brightness set to about 10-15% and have most location and notification services turned off (or manual use only).

    Was just observing the battery indicator go from about 75 percent this evening (iPhone was at 100 percent charged up at noon) down to 41% over the course of a 1.5 hour regular voice phone call (and nothing else going on the phone during the call).

    Which to me seems totally nuts -- either the iPhone5/ iOS6.0.2 is using too much juice, or something else weird is going on with it.

    But at this rate --34% used for 1.5 hr call-- I could only expect to get a max of 4.5 hours talk time before the battery runs out.

    Sigh.

    P.S. WiFi connection is marginally worse in 602 vs 601. (that is, bars seems more often in the 2bar-to3bar zone in my two home locations, whereas it seemed more often in the 3bar zone in 601.)

    This iPhone5 is my first "smart" phone... maybe I expect too much, vs. my previous LG VX5400 'basic' phone.

    I have similar problem of fast battery drain running ios 6.0.2 on my brand new iPhone5.  I am running minimal apps and ensured all gaming. apps are turned off. If this is a bug I hope someone from apple team ateast acknowledges and let us know if its hardware or os or some app issue.

    I just downloaded the near 1 GB 6.0.1 ipsw file and am considering going back to it.

     

    Though, Andypat345, sorry to hear you tried and it seemed not to help.

     

    I may still give it a shot...

    I too am having the battery drain issue. I am now happy I have a free onstar phone in my car until the end of the month.....I am barely using my phone and by noon it is down to 1% and then off. I really hope apple addresses this issue. I am trying the reset suggested in the other forum post and will try a restore if that does not work.

    I think this problem is due to something that is causing an app or the internet to continue to be accessing data even if all programs are turned off when the phone is on but not being used. My usage is showing 7 hours since my last full charge and 9 hours on standby - I have not used my phone for 7 hours. Please note that based upon one comment, I charged my phone to 90% so I have not actually had 7 or 9 hours. I had 5 hours since turning on my phone this morning until it went dead. Since I unplugged my phone it has drained 7% in 30 minutes with the only use being to check the usage.

     

    Not happy.

    THe problem of battery draining too fast has been fixed for five days now since I did this, so I highly recommend trying it. And it not only solved the battery drain issue, but my speediest results show greatly I prod download speeds.  This is copied from a related discussion on this forum.
