    Hi Webding,


    It would be interesting to see if your "fix" works after some time. I have managed to "fix" my IPAD IOS 6.1.3 problem battery problem by turning off all iCLOUD settings, turning off all mail, push ..etc. Killed all apps and then do a hard reset.


    It works for a day and then lo and behold the battaery drain problem came right back. I believe there is an inherent problem with 6.1.3. Currently the IPAD is just an expensive paper weight as the battery would not last 3/4 hours and the IPAD very hot to the touch. I am really worried something is going to burn out.


    Can't believe Apple releases such crap !

    Well, let's see if it works in a couple of days and give it a chance. (still 83% battery)


    But i'm ABSOLUTELY WITH YOU by saying "how could apple release a update with such a mayor bug"!!

    Im thinking of getting the juice pack too but Im holding off until june to see if the iso 7 fixes it. This is my first ever iphone I have the 4s and Ive never had problems with the battery until 6.1.2 now 6.1.3 and I reset everything and it was good for 2 wks then today the battery started dying again while plugged in. My cord wore out too but thats cuz I had used it for 2yrs but Im seriously considering getting the juice pack charger if its not fixed asap

    Same problems.  iOS 6.1.3, white Verizon iPhone 5 bought Oct. 2012.  Between 6.0 and 6.1.2, my iPhone 5 had the BEST battery life I had ever seen on a phone.  I could get a full day with all iCloud features on, 6 Exchange accounts with Push, do about an hour of talk time and 4 of Wi-Fi browsing, 1 of LTE/3G.  Just turned off a boatload of Location Services (including System Services) and took all accounts offline, and still draining 1% every 4 minutes or so.  It could also be that I'm on LTE, but I have never seen it drop this fast.


    My mom and uncle (both Verizon 4Ss one bought in Oct. 2011, other Mar 2013) and are experiencing the WORST battery life ever.  2 hours of talk, if they are lucky.


    Apple, you NEED to get 6.1.4 or 6.2 whatever you are going to call it, bug free and ready to go.  This is unacceptable.

    me two. it's not a mobile phone anymore. If is stay more than 6 or 7h away from a usb port to drains to death..

    I have an iPhone 5 - iOS6.1 (not even 2 mounths old..)

    Apple developers..please be more carefull on the software you do.

    The apps also are crashing a few times (face, gmail, wheather cube...) well i am sure this is an issue from the iOS and not all these apps..they started to drop all at the same time..

    I was having the same problems as most of you until yesterday. My 3rd gen iPad and iphone 4s had shown significant battery drainage after upgrading to iOS 6.1.3. Yesterday, April 3, both devices began showing great battery life again. I was able to stop the battery drain before by getting rid of all iCloud syncing. I believe Apple did something on the server side with iCloud to eliminate the problem. Anyone else have a similar experience?

  • webding Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree!



    It definately startet yesterday on my two 4s too.


    PLS UPDATE!!!!

  • webding Level 1 (0 points)



    it starts loosing energy again!!


    only a few % between 11pm - 7 am

    now from 88-40% from 8am-3pm...

    without any phonecalls, emails, internetsurfing...WITHOUT USE!!!

    and "push" is off!!


    that means: if you leave the house in the morning you will not be able to use your phone in the evening without charging.


    I'm sorry, but but do i really need to start writing postcards and do some signlafires again to communicate with freinds in this apple-dessert?

  • odjbo Level 1 (0 points)

    That fix only worked on my iPhone 4 for a short time. Several attempts: first it appears to be fixed, then the problem always returns. It's disheartening to see such poor quality from Apple.

  • ichiroNAMIJIN Level 1 (0 points)

    Then why are you here?

  • ichiroNAMIJIN Level 1 (0 points)

    I hope.. Let's hope for the best!


    I always include 6.1.4. Battery-drain fix in my dreams, lol.

  • ScubaDive4Me Level 1 (0 points)

    I am having a similar issue. update dto 6.1.3 and now the iPhone4 shuts down after about 2 hours and when i turn it back on i get the low battery display. If I plug a charger in if it recovers it shows 95 ro 100% charged and it works again. However yesterday it would not come out of th edead battery indication even on charger. then i unplugged it left it alone for a couple hours and then plugged it back in and it came alive, still died after a couple hours, WiFi on and off, BT on and off. Facetime off, iCloud off.


    I was on a 10 minute call the other day and it went from 100 to 85% then 10 minutes later shut off.


    The stgrange part is worth repeating, it shuts off and displays a dead battery, but when it gets plugged in and powers on 5 minutes later the battery is nearly or is fully charged.

  • sbailey4 Level 1 (25 points)

    That sounds like a bad battery to me. You said iPhone 4, how old is that device? Maybe have Apple test the battery for you at the store. That sounds like a typical bad /worn out battery more so that any software issue.

  • countrylizzard Level 1 (0 points)

    Mine is fine on stand by for 8hrs then after 15min of using it after standy by for 8hrs it starts dying its not that bad I guess

  • countrylizzard Level 1 (0 points)

    I wonder what would happen if we all started a protest against apple iphones on facebook page that says hey we're switching saying goodbye to iphones if u dont fix ur battery drainage issue? Wonder if they would be more eager to fix this issue if it gets more social media news attention? Just my thought
