I've been a big Apple fan and supporter for awhile. While a lot of my friends have gone over to android - and specifically Samsung - I've never thought of switching, until now that is. As I am typing this my battery is draining 1% every two minutes (I have actually been watching the clock and my battery percentage). This is unacceptable and disgraceful for Apple. This battery issue may be the last straw for me to throw my iPhone away and get a galaxy. I've turned off LTE which some people have said that it helps but it hasn't helped and really we shouldn't have to turn off LTE as that robs us of the fastest available data network available. Of course if the battery keeps draining then my phone won't do me any good even if I'm on "E".
GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER APPLE.
Ok, I had tried all of the above methods for that last cpl of days and no change....until, I tried 1 last time, so....shared calendar alerts off, invitations off, mail set to 'fetch' on iCloud and BT mail, but this time I set fetch to very 30mins (I had tried every other time available), rebooted my handset (hold down sleep and home until apple logo appears), did this on ipad 3 with 96% charge and on reboot it had 99%.....exactly the same process on my iPhone 5, rebooted from 46% and came back with 48%! Don't know if all this means I have got anywhere but I will keep you posted.....but aside from what we are trying to do I think that £550 for a handset that I can't use as should be able to says that Apple needs to sort this before we all jump to the Samsung galaxy and join the Android march for glory while apple falls on its own sword from a mighty height
Someone please tell me how to turn of notifications to this ******** feed that apple probably doesn't even look at. I turned off all notifications and emails but yet I still get a dozen ******* emails from this!
At the top of every page of the thread is a box labeled "Actions", and the first one is Stop Email Notifications.
And you are correct; Apple does not read the forum. This is a user to user forum.
Apple responds to calls to support and visits to Apple stores, and uses those to sources to identify recurring issues.
I'm very bored to upgrade ios 6.X.X.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX many patch mant problems too.
I'm upgrade to 6.1.2 my phone is warm and battery life absurd going down.
i didn't use phone after full charge, it's go to 93% so bad!!!!!!!!!!
do something better Apple Plaese~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ before it's too late.
Solutions that work:
1) Disable emails, restart phone, enable emails.
2) Disable Push email.
3) Disable Documents in the Cloud
Check out my post for more info: http://bkbeachlabs.com/blog/ios-6-1-2-battery-issue-solved/
I'll keep it updated with a list of solutions.
My battery on iphone5 last 10hours min, off course that is low but better than before!!
1. Update via Itunes ( RESTORE )
2. Set up via New iphone
3. Disable icloud
4. Remove email
5. Turn on only notifications on apps that are using daily, remove notifications for all apps on iphone.
6. Reboot Sleep+Home
That should help !!
Some relief today. My iPhone 4 was always draining 2% per hour since IOS 6 arrived. This is when everything which can be disabled was disabled including wifi, 3G and actually everything which make an iPhone a smartphone.
Upgraded to 6.1.2 and first day consumed all the battery overnight but after first charge things are very different. battery is lasting twice compared to earlier.
I think I will never upgrade IOS version now and fingers crossed that this issue will not reoccur.
I had the battery drain issue on my iPhone 5 on 6.1.2. It's seems to be resolved. I'd followed these certain steps.
1. Hard reset the phone (press power+home for more than 10 seconds till apple logo)
2. Settings>general>reset>reset all settings. ( this does not wipe out data or accounts or contacts. Just lost wifi password)
3. Again hard reboot the device.
See if this works with everyone.
Not sure if this means anything, but...
I used my MBP to share my internet connection from the ethernet cable to the wifi on the MBP. I then connected the iPhone 5 (6.1.2) to the wifi (the iPhone is the only client connected to the wifi). I logged all network traffic on the wifi interface using Wireshark for about 5 minutes. In that time, the iPhone was constantly "talking" to servers in the 17.xxx.xxx.xxx range on TCP, SSL and TLSv1 protocols.
Querying whois.arin.net who 17.xxx.xxx.xxx was revealed Apple is the owner of the IP addresses.
The IPs accessed were specifically: 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206.
Whatever this is, it is what my iPhone 5 is constantly making use of the internet connection and draining the battery for. I suspect iCloud. If it is iCloud, why does it have to constantly access the network. Can't it do it "just" every 30 seconds or so?
