Downloaded OS 6.1 for iPhone 5. Phone becomes super hot now and battery drains before my eyes. Issue first occured 5 days ago when in an area with no wifi and I was on a weak 4G signal. I thought it drained rapidly (literally before my eyes) due to 4G but it has happened 2x since then. It seems to occur when I am on 4G.  I was told Apple will be issuing a fix, that the new OS was causing this issue. True? Prior to this, I haven't had any problems with the battery. Phone is 4 months old. My third iPhone,no issues before. Any ideas?
