Question: iOS 6.1 Battery Life

I upgraded to iOS 6.1 a few hours ago and I must say that my iPhone 5 (previously running iOS 6.0.2) is getting insane battery life. I have been using my iPhone for almost 45 minutes, standy for 2 hours and the iPhone is still at 100%. This is just crazy. I will continue to test tomorrow when at work and see what I get all day.


What is everyone else seiing?

I have no issues with WiFi. The problem comes when you are on 3G. Not sure if CDMA phones are better in terms of 3G battery drain. I am down to 99% after about 30 mins usage out of which my 3G was not working for 25 mins. Too early to comment.

My 3gs is the best after update, very improves battery life and ultra fast i can believe how a 2009 device can do it so well. More than 1% per hour standing by means you have a problem with some app. Try System activity monitor in appstore and find wich process is accessing your cpu and killing your battery in multi task. A must for everybody.

I have the effect that since the update my iPhone battery Life is horrible.


Checking the useage statistic gives the Strange info


1.59 hours useage

1.59 hours standby


Now at 23%


So for whatever reason the phone seems to be "always on" resulting in such Short battery Life.


Any idea how to fix that?

Better life? I have had a similar first impression after the upgrade. Overnight, it would drain about 5-6% of the total even if I turned all off but the cellular voice linkup. This morning, 8 hours after the upgrade fiesta and with Cellular/Cellular Data/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth on (just no Locarion Services), I still had 100% on the gauge! Woo hoo!!
