I think the wifi network search drivers are just more aggressive with the polling. Try disabling WIFI when not in use, see if it makes a difference.

when I'm in school normally I can maintain a "full battery bar" for several hours. Now it'll go down to the battery level bar that happens when it drops down to 93/94%. Even though I'm not doing anything and have 4 bars of signal.

No such problems here.

To anyone having a problem with battery drain.

Plug your phone into the charger. Delete all the apps from the fast app switcher tray.

Press and hold the home button and sleep button at the same time. Screen should go blank, let go and phone will restart.

Sounds like it was previously reporting incorrectly.

You guys think it was reporting right staying at 100% for hours???

No wonder you trust Verizon won't cancel unlimited LTE lol...

Seriously though, it's a much more EVEN discharge for me. It reports accurate discharge, instead of peaks and valleys.

It SHOULD drop a few percent after a few hours. If it wasn't before it wasn't you magically getting free power it was just not reporting the drain.

Pretty well a bricked device...

After updating to 6.02 the phone locks up after putting my password in. It makes the click sound when I successfully put my password in, but doesn't do anything else. After about 30 seconds to a minute, it restarts same thing happens after it restarts. I can access the camera and play music if I double tap the home button. But it never gets past the lock screen!! this isn't good.

----------

Funny, while trying anything possible... If I open the camera from the lock screen, swipe right, it goes to a black screen... Wtf! Did I download a pre-alpha version of the OS or something!!!

----------

Ahhh it's fixed! I "thought" it was restarting after it crashed from the lock screen, but it was really just the "Lock Screen app" restarting. I had to force the device to restart using power and home button. phew!

Updated last night.

No issues, but I wasn't having any before either. Battery still good.

That said, I did notice that my WiFi seemed to pick up and notify me that a WiFi connection was available much more often.

Welcome to the world of software; nothing's ever bug-free. As for this topic, my battery is the same if not better after the update.

Since you seem to only pay attention to the few anecdotal negative posts and ignore all the positive ones: Yes, they'll ALL be messed up. You really should switch to Android. Immediately.

Meanwhile, I'll enjoy my great battery life under 6.0.2.

Have you actually looked at what they consider "standby" to be?

Standby is with the screen off, no bluetooth etc I'd imagine. Which suggests that with the screen off, you should expect the phone to drop by ~1% every ~2 and a bit hours.

x2. I know 6.0.2 seemed a little worse only because I used the phone so much more because I could actually use WiFi for once at work for the first time since buying the phone. :P

6.02 is woeful.

Data drops often. Now I just downloaded a single game over WIFI and my battery dropped from 96% down to 92%. Ridiculous.

My phone has never had Wi-Fi issues, but I upgraded anyway. I have Wi-Fi on at work all day, and I'm definitely seeing an increase in battery drain. I suspect Apple "fixed" the problem by sending more juice to the radio, which would account for the battery hit. I'm leaning toward going back to 6.01.

For anyone experiencing problems, do a soft reset first, update all your apps and reset network settings. If that doesnt work do a hard reset, if THAT doesnt work just restore your phone. Im on 6.02 and i have absolutely no problems its most likely just a update bug you guys got when you updated

Typical apple supremacist post. What about this bug that makes my phone randomly restart when opening a notification? For it to "just work" I shouldn't have to basically set my phone up as new to get an update working properly.

My battery life has improved since iOS 6.0.2. Before the update, I would end up with around 60% of battery left after a day's work. Now I have about 80% left.

My FiL's Nokia phone had great battery time. 26 days, I think was his average. And he turned it on briefly almost every other day!!
