    Try disabling Notifications to the Facebook app, and then kill it in the Quick Launch ribbon.

    quick launch ribbon = slide from left to right?

    and what about your previous suggestion ( in someone else's post) of push to fetch on yahoo ?

    I've tried all solutions mentioned here, including westladog's and nothing has worked for me.  Only leaving it on "fetch" resolves the battery drain issue for me.

    Quick launch ribbon: On the main Home screen, double-press the HOME button. It will appear on the bottom of the screen. Scroll it until you see Facebook (or any other app you want to kill), hold your finger on it until a "-" appears, and tap the "-".

     

    You can also turn off Push and use Fetch instead, but I suggest doing these separately so you can see which makes a difference.

    I'm in the same boat here :( with an added issue that my camera shutter won't open. I have an iPhone 4. Everything was fine until Tuesday and then all of a sudden battery was draining extremely quickly, about 1% per 2 minutes and the phone got very hot and the camera won't open.

    I've tried using the camera in other apps, Instagram and Facebook, but it still doesn't work. I can't get front or back camera.

    I've tried some of the suggestions on here.... I removed the email accounts, hard reset, removed calendars, disabled iCloud, removed sim and nothing seems to be working.

    I tried to restore it from the last backup but it says there's not enough space even though I've got 6.4gb free. I'm at a loss!

    I'm really regretting updating to 6.1.2, I'm always wary as I have experienced my previous iPhone 3G turning into an iBrick after an update :(

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    I have the same issue.  Was at 100% when I left for work at 7am and now its noon and im at 25%.  I have everything basically turned off so it doesnt fetch any data.  All the apps are off, wifi is off, manual fetching of email is enabled, and mostly all location services are turned off.  Someone get Steve Jobs on the phone from the afterlife to fix this company that seems to be going down the crapper.

    There were just as many complaints about rapid battery discharge when Steve Jobs was alive. Probably more relatively, beause there were fewer iPhones.

    Hi. I tried everything and nothing is working. But have some own observations - it seams that there is an issue with the 3G protocol. I do not have push, only fetch, 1 gmail account and corporate exchange. When i am on Edge - perfect working, no drain. When i switch on 3g in setting - phone becomes warm and battery starts draining! 1-2% per 5 mins....

  • Suzannie Level 1 Level 1

    So I restored my phone and I've still no joy. I'm all out of ideas :(

  • ninja121 Level 1 Level 1

    Is apple seriously not going to address this issue?  All I hear on several forums are people complaining about battery drain directly related to 6.1.2.  I've done a reset on network settings and then a reset on all settings and neither have fixed this issue.  The phone doesn't even last a full day before needing charged.  I'm not in one place long enough to keep charging it all the time.  Apple needs to address this, now.

  • Onceuponiphone Level 1 Level 1

    I Did the same as you did. It did not help. My battery does not even last for two hours with usage. It turns off on 50% battery life. When i plug in the charger, it opens showing 40% battery percentage!! We really need a new update.. It is something unbearable. 

  • ladizel Level 1 Level 1

    I was also having this issue and had tried all of the suggested fixes, with nothing working.  Two days ago I looked down at my phone and it was going through a reset that I had not initiated.  When it came back up, my battery problem was solved, and the phone is working great again.  My settings still show that I have 6.1.2, so it was not an upgrade of any sort and I had no control over it.  Whatever has happened, I am grateful.

    No. Apple is not going to address it now or ever. People have been complaining about battery drain since the first iPhone came out in 2007. There's nothing different about 6.1.2. Everyone has a choice; they can complain, or they can fix it using the tried and true methods posted in this and other threads.

  • Onceuponiphone Level 1 Level 1

    I Tried all what was suggested.. Nothing worked! My battery was perfect before this 6.1.2 update! So what to do now?  This is ridiculous. There should be a new update fixing that.. Or maybe we switch to android!!
