I purchased my Iphone 5 on the day of release, since then I have had a 2 day battery life on average, since upgrading to IOS 6.0.2, the battery struggles to last for 4 hours, is there any solution or fix??  If not any idea when this will be fixed??  Is there anyway to revert back to IOS 6.0.1?



iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2

    It is unlikely that this problem has anything to do with iOS 6.0.2. It is possible that the update process itself has caused some settings on your iPhone to become corrupted.


    Here are some steps to deal with this:


    1. Close all apps (use the app switcher; double tap home, press and hold an icon, click the "-" signs)

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

    3. Wait for iPhone to restart.

    4. Charge iPhone up to 100% and monitor.

    Thanks for the help, but i am sorry to say that this has not helped at all, I have taken the phone off of charge and after just 1hr 52 mins I am down to 53% battery life and my phone is like a pocket warmer.


    Does anyone have any other suggestions?
