Every since OS update someone complains about battery life drain.

Cumulatively, if every OS update made the iPhone drain faster than the previous iteration, no iPhone would last longer than 15 minutes.

Or maybe some people have no idea what the hell they are talking about.

I think most of those who complain there is a problem have no clue how to reboot their phone or reset network settings after an update.

At least Safari is snappier.

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.
I was having the battery drain issue since installing 6.0.2 but I did this last night and now it's back to normal. Thanks muffins.

Any you guys having battery drain on 6.0.2 do a DFU restore with itunes. It should fix any draining issues.

No battery issues here on 6.0.2 on my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.

The iPad Mini is new, obviously, but I did have to do a clean restore on the iPhone 5 to fix initial battery issues after restoring from a backup.

I have a question, what sorta battery drain do you see in standby?

I only got my iPhone on Monday (the day 6.0.2 was released I think) and I have about 2-4% drain per hour in standby with Wifi on (and in my house so it will connect), 3g and data on and bluetooth off.

Does this seem normal standby? I usually receive maybe 1 email or imessage an hour during these times and i don't really do anything (don't even unlock it).

Just my preference to update the ios via iTunes.

Battery fine and i had no previous wifi issues luckily for me.

Hope those affected get sorted.

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.
