After upgrading my iphone 4s to the 6.1.1 last night, it suddenly started misbehaving.  Battery drains quickly and the phone gets hot.  Tried resetting the settings-to no avail.  WTH Apple!!!!

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.1

    Im too new to here and just joining here yesterday, so please bear with me. Haha, ok I try to help you here to sort out of your issues with recently iOS Upgrade of 6.1.1. Ummm, try first restore through iTunes, second try performing hard reset by pressing home button and wake up/sleep button same time for 10 seconds. Try another solution, resetting and resetting network. So let me know here if my solution sucessfully works for you if not that mean iOS Update have some issues themselves. So try that!

    Basic troubleshooting from the User's Guide is reset, restart, restore (first from backup then as new).  Try each of these in order until the issue is resolved.

    This does not work, I have done all of that at the direction of Apple with no improvement.

    It does work for many.  If it is not working for you, take the device to Apple for evaluation and possible replacement.

    Same with me.I upgraded to ios 6.1.1 recently the battery drainage is very high.Before upgrade  used to get 2 days battery life with normal usage.Now everyday I need to recharge.

    None of the proposed tricks worked. I believe there is something else wrong with the firmware than Exchange circular bug.

    I have this issue since upgrading to 6.1.1 with my 4S, phone has never got warm let alone hot since the day I got it yet as soon as 6.1.1 was installed the battery drains extremely quickly and it gets very very warm when charging!


    No amounts of resets or restores help, no point taking it in under warranty as it is clearly a software issue.

    This is obviously a problem with 6.1.1.  The only question I have is how can I undo the damage that Apple did?  Can I jail-break the phone and somehow downgrade?  6.1.0 work fine.

  • WelshPaul Level 1 Level 1

    Sadly there is nothing you can do, there is talk of 6.1.2 early next week but to be honest I wouldn't hold out much hope on that either! Every single iOS 6 release so far has brought more problems than benefits from what I read so we shall see.


    I wish I didn't have to do that restore, I would be running 5.1.1 which was rock solid on my 4S!

    Obviously it is not.  If it were, it would be affecting the majority if not all iPhone users and it simply is not.

    There is not damage.

    Downgrading of iOS is not supported.

    Discussion of jailbroken devices is not permitted here per the terms of use of these forums.  Jailbreaking the device voids the warranty.

    I suspect this is related to exchange support. But logic prevails that if you only change one thing and the result correlates with others who only changed one thing, then that one thing is likely the problem. Its 6.1.1. Now, it might be 6.1.1 and Exchange; 6.1.1 and CDMA; 6.1.1 and people with gray hair; but the common point there is 6.1.1.


    If it works for you - thank your lucky stars.

    Honestly, if you take a few minutes to search the forums, you will see that after EVERY iOS update there is a group of users reporting battery issues.  iOS updates are not the problem.


    Users failing or simply refusing to do basic troubleshooting is the issue.  I have seen no greater reporting of issues with 6.1.1 compared to previous iOS updates to indicate the issue is something specific to this version.  That being said, if your device is having the issue with the Exchange servers, that will most definitely cause significant battery drain.  Granted that issue seems to have been introduced in 6.1, not 6.1.1.

    I hope when you have an issue with your device someone tells you that it is your fault. Your fanboyism is out of control if you honestly think this is a user issue and not an apple issue. But, im guessing you're one of those people who thinks apple can do no wrong.


    When the iPhone alarm clock bugs happened I assume you told everyone that apple was not at fault, it was the universes fault for not creating time to work effortlessly with iOS devices.


    iOS updates are clearly the problem as are people like you.

    I must be one of the lucky few, 6.1.0 I struggled to get though a day on a single charge, I am now on 6.1.1 and could make 2 days on a single charge if I wanted too.


    Here's looking to further improvements in the next one.  Fingers crossed.
