    Lawrence. The point is people shouldn't have to troubleshoot! Why on earth do you find this acceptable?

    I've heard more people complain about 6.1.2 than I have report it as a success. Where do you get your figures from??

    Is it's possible that its because people who have success don't bother to post? If your phone is working as it always did, why would you even bother to visit the forum?


    My figures are a guess, based on the number of DIFFERENT people posting. When there is a widespread problem the posts on it quickly go to the tens of thousands. So far there are 330 in this thread, and the actual number of different users posting here is much lower than that. It's also much lower than the number of posts for other versions, like 6.1.1, 5.1, etc. So just from a statistical perspective 6.1.2 is far better than 6.1.1 and most other recent releases.

    Maybe I missed it Lawrence, but did you calculate using ALL the threads on the battery problem?

    Actually, no, you are correct. So I went back and checked all threads about 6.1.2 battery drain, and found another 54 posts. So please correct my "330" to "384". Which is a distinction without a difference. Compare it to this thread: with 13,000 posts.

    Perhaps you are right then however I go back to my point of frustration after trying all the fixes I know of. Like you say, people who are happy aren't likely to post and I would add, there are likely many more having problems and don't post. They are reading here and not posting, they could be going to the Genius Bar, they don't know or don't care to come to forums, etc. so speculating the numbers positively is as valid as speculating the numbers negatively. That said, I find your analysis interesting. None the less, I have a nearly $1000.00 phone that doesn't work properly.

    The issue is with the software. The batteries in the phones have no issue. I also have recently updated to 6.1.2 and have noticed the issue drastically get worse. There is rumor about a new software version being released soon but no official announcement. Also i started making sure that all my apps are closed and that has helped a little bit.

    My 2 year old iPhone 4 was having what I thought were battery issues.  I uninstalled apps I'd downloaded, synced, updated, etc.  I finally traded it in for a new iPhone 4s.  I took my brand new 4s home and did a restore and guess what???? My brand new phone is acting exactly the same as my old phone.  That's when I found this thread and realized my issues started when I updated to 6.1 on my old phone.  I didn't even consider that the OS update would have been the culpret.  I guess I expect more from Apple.  So now what do I do????  I can't stant a phone that dies after 4-6 hours of minimal use!!!

    You could read some of the messages in the thread you posted to and see how other people have fixed it. Note, however, that this thread is for people who did not have a problem with 6.1 but did with 6.1.2.

  • Gunny30 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I am on my 3rd iphone 5 because of other issues, BUT I upgraded my first and second to 6.1.... and battery drained like crazy... got my 3rd one and kept 6.0.1 and runs like a top.  NO PROBLEMS. Lasts forever no matter what I do.  I refuse to upgrade until I dont see any more posts like this!!!

    Sitting in the Apple Store in Grand Central Station...ipad 3 having battery drain issues after 6.1.2...Apple does not recognize this as an issue---DO NOT DOWNLOAD!    

  • Lawrence Finch Level 7 Level 7 (32,780 points)

    If you have an Exchange email account you had better download it, or your Exchange administrator is likely to block you. My battery life is slightly better with 6.1.2 than it was with 6.1.1, and about the same as 6.1, but it's a small difference, so hard to be certain.


    @jstrum, you can fix the problem pretty easily if you read some of the tips in this message thread.

  • Alani4s Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Worked for me.......


    Hi all, u might wanna have a look at this website, had the same problem of battery draining really fast after upgrading to the ios 6.1.2, so i was looking everywhere for some tips and I believe i finally found it by following the first and 2nd step on this website, I think my battery is back to how it was before upgrading to the ios6.1.2. Hopefully this will help u too.


  • jstrum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you for the insight...I am in the process of restoring a new ipad from the cloud...hopefully the issue does not follow onto this new device.


    @Lawrence Finch--- thanks for the information

  • ladizel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you!  I'm trying it and will see how it goes.  This is still insane - it worked before, so why does an "upgrade" have to make things incredibly worse???  I had no problem with the 6.1.1 upgrade this was supposed to fix.  Never had a problem with Apple before, but if this keeps up, I will be a former iPhone user.

    Because I have realistic expectations of my Consumer Electronics Products, and acknowledge that while most of the time fantastic, manufacturers do not warrant perfect performance.


    Therefore, I find it acceptable that from time to time, things aren't going to go as smooth as I might like, and I may have to troubleshoot these issues to find a resolution.


    Put simply, that's the digital world we live in.

    I lost 100% battery within 5 hours without even using my iPhone 5. The following day I changed my email accounts from Push to Fetch, and after 16 hours I still had 75% battery life left!
