I too am taking a battery hit after updating to 6.02. My battery life was really good before the update. It's definitely noticeable.

My iPhone's battery has taken a hit with the 6.0.2 update as well, unfortunately.

Come again? Given all the moaning on this thread about killing the battery life why in God's name would you even want it?

There's always a chance that he meant that there's no way he'd install it on the mini, even when it's available (although I doubt that's the case.)

You tend to watch the % figure instead of enjoying using the iPhone !

Yep, that's exactly why. There's no difference in graphic down to about 90% so you'll think it's full. Percentages not needed.

so it doesn't necessarily change the battery life, you just aren't watching it drop and relax a bit?

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).
Apples posted spec is 225hrs for standby. Therefore 100%/225=.44% per hour. If its only on standby and no apps running etc. So after 3 hrs you could expect to see 99%. Of course the meter is not linear so typically it may stay on 100% for a good while then drop off a little faster.

It's getting very frustrating guys...

I have done a full restore, reset for the settings, etc and I still have a huge drain.

Yesterday I left home pretty early and came back even later. During the day I had to charge my phone twice.

Look at the screenshot.


Is there anything else I can do? My iPhone isn't a phone anymore. I can't get to lunch time without needing to charge it again!

That looks horrific. If it was happening to me, I would take the phone into an Apple store ASAP.

Im starting to think its the portuguese Vodafone,in 3G its like the battery drains in standby or not and reception of 3G isn't very good.

Since updating to 6.0.2 i've noticed a decrease in battery life. Does anyone know if Apple is working to resolve this issue?

I should have skipped it. My iPhone 5 was working fine before the last update.

I am on 6.1B4 but a hunch is that IF apple changed the radio software to incorporate the WiFi fix, the engineers might have slipped in some bit if extra code for Mobile as well which is causing this blunder. And since it might be a small change, there was no need to mention in changelog.

There is a mobile feature called "Fast Dormancy" which basically tries to dial down to lower power mode when data is not being used on mobile networks which means if its enabled, the phone would have a quicker timeout to try and get down to 3G/H from H+ (for example). When disabled, this timeout is longer but the connection is much more stable.

The problem comes when the phone is forcing this strategy but the network doesnt support it at all (most countries at the moment) and this causes lot of data flickers and switching, thus draining battery more rapidly (especially in low signal areas).

As I said, its just my opinion since we cant actually look at the code.

Since I updated to 6.0.2 my missed calls don't show up in Notification center anymore. Anyone else noticed this? I really found it handy to just swipe down and choose who to call first.

Yeah I'm noticing the same thing on my new iPhone 5 (running iOS 6.0.2). While my wife's iPhone 4, running iOS 6.0.1, still seems to work fine when it comes to that.

I also noticed a single unanswered thread about this in the official Apple discussion forums from someone with an iPhone 5 using iOS 6.0.1, so might not be specifically related to 6.0.2.

After updating to 6.02 I've had occasional issues of lag and freezing on the iPhone 5. It's annoying! This happened when swiping through the home screen and in the middle of running apps in general!

Anyone else have this problem?
