    I have an iPhone 4s running 6.1.2 and I'm

    relieved that I'm not the only one with this problem. When

    using my phone moderately it will last 4 hours sometimes 5 which

    depends on how it's used.

      • I did exactly the same things as on top and really have not seen an improvemnt.  The battery will last forever if you do not touch it.  The moment I USE the phone, the battery drains by 1% every few minutes.



    Exactly my problem... Standby is perfect but few text messages or so drain couple percents... strange..

    also got massive battery life loss with iPhone 5 iOs 6.12 since some days.

    My associate in the office next door keeps his S3 plugged it at his desk all day, so he will have enough battery for the trip home. Maybe the S4 will be better. Good luck!

    When Apple gonna resolve this issue??? regret buying this crap phone !!!!

  • Lawrence Finch Level 7 Level 7 (32,750 points)

    Never. Because it is a problem with your phone, not with the release, and it is probably an app that you installed that is causing it. And it is easy to fix yourself; just read some of the messages in this thread.

    my iphone 5 is still having battery drain problems after doing all the steps that you mention, Finch. At my wit's ends.

  • ShujahCh Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    it's all about 3g, i disable 3g and i'm with edge E my 2 days standby and 8 hours use, still i have 29%

  • ShujahCh Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    this is not about iphone nor about battery its all about ios 6.1.2 because in this version apple tried to give better conection with 3G and this is causing battery drain... if you try to use wifi or only edge E battery will run normal as before with edge E.

    I may have found a temporary fix for mine, albeit less than ideal.


    I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2. I've had no problems with battery drain until now and the update hasn't affected my iPad, but it has wreaked havoc on my iPhone. I'm a consultant in an industry that has a lot of time sensitive issues and has me constantly running around town. My iPad is wifi only, so I rely on my iPhone constantly for email, calls, internet research, etc. when I'm mobile. In the past, I could charge my battery to 100%, leave home around 8:00 am and it wouldn't see the low battery warning until late in the afternoon. After the update, my phone would get very hot and I was lucky if it lasted for a few hours and it was sucking the power out of an external battery pack within 10 minutes and not even getting more than a 30% charge which barely lasted either. Even worse, it was draining even when on standby.


    I tried everything that I've read: turning of notifications and locations, deleting and reinstalling GMail and iCloud (I don't even use Exchange), resetting the network settings, rebooting, and a full restore. Nothing has worked up until now. But I tried logging out of applications that have push features like Facebook, Tumblr, etc. and I'm considering disabling iCloud when I don't need to access it. But just logging in and out of apps, has helped tremendously, and I'm down to 34% after about 6 hours of heavy use today.


    It's not a perfect solution but it's been less inconvenient than I thought it would be. It seems like or solutions work for some people and not or others. Hopefully this one will help a few people out.

    I wonder how many extra charge cables Apple sells after each update?

  • jaymontel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have an iPhone 5 running 6.1.2. Have experienced the battery drain. Today I disabled Push, and eneabled Fetch on my email accounts. Then I did the hard reboot, and charged to to 100%, and re-enabled Push. Now, almost 5 hours after being fully charge, my battery still shows 96%. I've checked a few emails, written a few text messages, and had about a 5 minute phone call. Not a lot of activity, but so far, I have more battery remaining than I did prior to what I did with the Push, etc. Hopefully that solved my issue.


    Interestingly, I go to Mexico frequently, and I disable all cellular, and I don't use the phone, but the battery drains pretty significantly with basically no usage. Curious to see what happens on the next trip.

    Hello @jaymontel!  I'm from the Philippines.  I am also using iPhone 5 with ios 6.1.2.  I also fixed my problem by disabling Push in all accounts including iCloud.  I only use wifi for the internet.  I think the 6.1 update is not compatible with all networks because I am using a network which does not support LTE, and did not get any license to sell iPhones.  Maybe Apple is too advanced in their software and left behind some of the networks.  Hopefully, they make the software backwards compatible coz not all networks can upgrade to US standards.
