Downloaded last night, went to bed with 96% battery woke up 6 hours later to 1% battery! Never happened till I updated. Anyone else?

    The same problem is with my phone. Do not really know what to do. Hope they will fix it as soon as possible as it is of no good to use the phone for a couple of hours and then charge it again and again.

    Absolutely terrible. The phone dies within hours of normal use. Apple suggested "fix" of virtually disabling all the features on the phone defies the purpose of buying this phone in the first place. Why don't they just suggest to turn it off completely and just look at it? As an Apple user for the past 20 years I can tell that the quality of the product keeps deteriorating. Apple really has to work hard to address these constant problems. After all, people are not dumb and they will eventually stop buying their products realizing it's nothing but the fad lately.

    I had encountered the same problem as a iphone5 user.Apple has to release a new update becouse it has no meaning to use a wired smartphone!! But while waiting a new update i may recommend you to switch off your 3G.

     

    If you do that it works as if you have never updated to 6.1.4.

     

    BTW,stay away from 6.1.4 update.

    Same here. I was out of town last week. Came home and had to wipe the iPhone5 on Saturday.

     

    I am a developer and just wanted to start fresh as a new iPhone.

     

    Anyway, this morning I got up, took the iPhone5 off charge (100%). Went to take a shower, brush teeth and come back to get dressed ( like 20 minutes or so tops ) - the iPhone5 was at 96%.

     

    This is not normal at all.  All this from a speaker profile update? Really??

     

    Hey Apple, how about a fix!!!

    I have an iPhone 5 and have never had battery drain issues until installing the 6.1.4 update. Now, with full LTE bars and Wi-Fi, I am watching the battery drain 1% *every 5 minutes*. And, on top of that, the case is constantly warm likely due to the radios or microprocessors going nuts. I have tried restarting numerous times, but this hasn't fixed the issue for me.  In fact, once when I restarted, most all of my settings were reset which was strange.  Anyone know if there is a way to go back to 6.1.3?

    Same issue here. (AT&T) I have pretty much the same routine every work day. Before 6.1.4 at 8 PM I would typically have 35 to 45% battery life left. After 6.1.4 I'm 17 to 27%. (IN THE RED) I've rebooted the phone 2 or 3 times.

    Same.

    But this morning, I turned 3G off and still had 95% by noon.
