You had to tap before, swiping and pinching did nothing. It did on mine anyway.

How do you get 9 hours, or even 11, do you have Wi-Fi off or Notifications off? Or even the Bluetooth or Location off? My iPod touch has a lower average of about 7-8 hours (without it cutting off completely) and that was on beta 4 and 3 of iOS 6.1 as of the final I get a good usage of about 7hours and 40mins before I get the 20% warning.

Interesting...noticed something potentially new in a bugs thread, of all places:

When I receive a message (iMsg or sms) notification as BANNER, I can pull down on it and the NC comes with it. The more I pull down, the more the message notification banner disappears... Was pulling down the notification done by purpose? (I'm not talking about pulling down NC of course..!)
It actually almost sounds like a new feature (improvement) rather than a bug, assuming this behavior wasn't there before iOS 6.1. I don't quite recall if it worked like this before as I would usually either tap on the banner notification to go to its details, or swipe it (left to right) to dismiss it.

The new look to the music and volume controls on the lock screen was not there prior to iOS 6.1. It's one of the bigger/more noticeable new features that was introduced in iOS 6.1, as pointed out pretty much everywhere.

That's always happened.

i'm guessing (and only guessing) that some of the high numbers cited by people include music player usage which counts as usage, but with the screen off is spec'd to go for 40 hours.

Which is one of at least a few reasons why these kind of usage (and even standby) comparisons are far from being even close to meaningful--in a generic/average type of sense, they might be useful, but not that much more beyond that.

I don't know if this has been mentioned anywhere else but when I plug my phone into my car receiver via USB, the iPod controls are now shown instead of the blank "device connected" screen or whatever it said. I have a JVC KD-X50BT aftermarket receiver. Now I can use both the receiver controls and iPod controls to switch through albums/artists/etc. I'm glad this was changed.

Since iOS 4.x issues, I've always done the same thing. Wait. And hear what the verdict is for new updates. I don't update right away anymore. Most times, unless there are major improvements, critical bug/security fixes, or my collection of apps wanting to update (but requires latest iOS) goes into double digits, I'll wait 2 or 3 versions before updating. I do find downloading the latest update, and updating at a later time, causes less issues than downloading and updating at same time. No lags, no long hang ups, no crashes. And your not in queue with the other million or so users updating at the same time.

I never trust battery usage time on my iPhone.



It didn't indicate that I plugged it. Or I have the best battery life of any phone ever. I don't use my iPhone for music either.

I don't even look at that anymore. I go by the percentage at the top. It gives me a better indication on how fast my battery drains with certain usage. You can predict, based on your own routines, how long your battery will last. And can adjust accordingly. For me, if I can plug it into a computer or wall socket when I'm not using it, I'll do that. Keep it always charged as much as possible. But even without plugging it in all day, I know from my own usage, by the time I get home and plug it in to charge (around 8pm), I usually get down to about 55% battery life. Which for me, would be about another 3 hours of moderate to heavy use, before really needing to recharge.
