Can anybody help me? The battery only lasts for 8 hours and is getting hot. I also recognised that even I switched of my WiFi it tells me that the phone has not found a WiFi-link during startup.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2

    Have you reset after updating

    Yep tried it, no effect. I've found a post where it was suggested to disable any push/polling of mails and instead manuel Update mail inbox - this temporary fix seems to work, and i Will now wait for a new iOS update to fix the problem.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    or try a restore

    first with backup and then as new

    Don't assume everyone has your problem and there  will be a global

    Those 2 solutions are ón my list, but they take time.

    Apple have dissapointed mé plenty lately and i dont assume anything from Them anymore... Its sad but they lost Their grip. I have iPod, iPod touch, iphone,iPad 1 & 4, MacBook Pro 17" timecapsul but im strongly considering if i want more of Their products with all the problems they have shows lately... Ie. Poor antennes, sw. Problems poor quality on telephone aluminium etc. Etc.

    Ever since updating to iOS 8.0  on Sep 17 and then 8.0.2 my 5 battery is dying - tried clean re-install - went into Apple Store and the said my battery is dying - may not hold til my 6 + comes Nov 8. Also experiencing Bluetooth/ car connectivity fails -crossing my fingers -Apple always comes through. I am now 10 days out of warranty and they will not put in a new battery. Good luck to us all.
