The problem I had with update earlier vanished the next day. At first when it wouldn't work, the update downloaded very quickly within a few minutes but then refused to install.

Today though, I tried it again and while the update took 25 minutes to download, it installed no problems, although it did take about another 15 minutes to install.

That is so very true, I've had my iMac in for repair so I bought an iPod touch 5G and it has revolutionised my life, I am currently writing up some very complex stream of consciousness work and I have discovered that using my bluetooth keyboard and the tiny ipod touch screen and a beautiful app like IA Writer, my writing is much more tightly focussed and free flowing. There's something about seeing the words pop up on this tiny little screen to my side while I just forget about my hands which seem to be nothing to do with me. It's like I'm just reading something that is being written by my brain. I would never have thought this possible.

Then there is the amazing quality of the camera and very cool video and photo processing apps that just make it an absolute joy to use.

Delete your Exchange sync from your phone and in the Phone section of OWA. Then recreate the connection.

Nice work, Apple. Totally rush an update and brick a thousand dollars worth of electronics equipment I rely on for my job.
why didn't you do one at a time?

I've only seen it pop up for Yelp and Apple Store. This was the first I saw Google Search pop up. Maybe I 'x' it out a long time ago prior to the update and didn't remember.

I'm just happy location aware apps get the data processed faster.

I'm not getting this update at all?

4S running 6.1.1 Beta

How can a public release be ahead of a beta release? Confused!

Well it's not an OS problem so drop the attitude. I am STILL accessing my Exchange email and have had no problems with it at all throughout any of the complaints

I wonder how many are genuine apple issues or stubborn people blaming apple when the issue is a misconfiguration of either the device or server.

Grrrrr. I wonder why then, since the four non-JB'en devices are running better without. The only thing I miss is Springtomize 2 and the volume increase tweak(s). It just killed my phone's though.

Oh, and Netatalk still lingered even if removed. That one irked me.

Oh and double Grrrr/derp, I realized I paid for the TetherMe iOS 6 upgrade, which I now cannot use. Good one on my lol.

I've actually had this problem. You've downloaded a rogue tweak somewhere, and after you restore the phone to a clean OS and re-jailbreak and install only reputable .deb's, your phone will run fine I am sure.

I've had ****** tweaks kill my phone – in standby mode – in 3 hours. This is exactly why Apple isn't like android with widgets and custom ROM's. If you install stuff and take notes of what deb you just installed and your battery is now running a little short, you can prevent this kinda thing usually. Cheers!

Worked For Me

Beginning yesterday afternoon my battery began drastically draining. I went from around 50% to the point where it wouldn't even turn on within an hour or so. I checked for a software update and sure enough 6.1.2 was available and it allegedly "Fixes an Exchange calendar bug that could result in increased network activity and reduced battery life". I downloaded and installed the update with no problem and charged my phone to 100%. I took it off the charger last night around 10 pm and it maintianed 100% all night and as of 9:23 EST this morning it has only fallen to 87% after watching several videos, listening to music via Pandora, and checking/responding to emails.

Thanks Apple!!

Yeah good point, it is a very capable and awesome OS stock no doubt, enjoyed it a lot for many years on more than a few devices. That said, tweaking really adds to the device, and it adds even more when the device is as powerful as the iPhone 5. But you're right, either way it is a pretty capable pocketable computer and that is incredibly amazing.

No worries mate.

Fortunately my car carries my battery around for me so I can charge on the go if I so require, but I rarely do. Downloading at over 1MB/s pretty consistently so a few minutes of downloading is hardly the most intensive thing I can do with my device. You play 3D games on your phone at all?
