Maybe 6.1 will improve the power consumption of the iPad 4.
I have no technical expertise in this area, so I just blindly hope.

my iPad 4 LTE has the longest battery life of the iOS devices I have ever had. One hour of "bejeweled HD", iMessage, web browsing, twitter, Facebook, only used 5-6% of battery.

Right? I've been using the iTunes DJ feature in iTunes to load random music to my phone. Refresh a couple of times, add the contents to a playlist, and play in car. Now there is no obvious way to do that.

The sheer length of the device customized OS list does not scream iOS convergence.

Wifi hotspot plain stopped working. works fine on iOS 5. Rogers Canada here...

Add to that I'm getting around 1 hour less battery with iOS 6 (on iOS 5, i'm going home with 80-85% battery life.)
now I'm lucky to be in the 70s

pain in the butt over all. hopefull
I have the exact same problem on my iPhone 5 6.0.1.

I havent installed this yet, but the very nature of it being released has made Safari feel 'snappier' and my battery life issues are fixed.

Disappointed - both that you can't actaully use siri for something so obvious and also because my name gives the perfect excuse to come back with

"I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that."
Try telling it to open the pod bay doors…

They need to fix the LTE issues.
There's currently a delay randomly when browsing on iPhone 5, as if it's looking for a connection" every now and then, before the LTE kicks in.
Pretty annoying and defeats the purpose of LTE speeds.

On iphone 5, battery life over 3G is horrible. Every 2 minutes 1% drain.

My wifes new (2 month old) 4s started doing that when we were in a low signal area and it went in and out of 3G. Then when returned home with 5 bar service continued doing it randomly. I removed the SIM and cleaned it with a pencil eraser then wiped with alcohol pad and let dry, re-installed it and have not done it since (about 3 weeks now). We are on Verizon CDMA so technically should not be using the SIM. Anyway may want to try that as it fixed hers so far. Also airplane mode toggle on then off got hers back connected when it was doing it. Quicker than a reboot.

----------

OK guys so 3 days now, anyone have update on wifi connectivity/performance and battery life of beta 3? More specifically for 4s? 6.0.1 supposed to have helped wifi but stated iPhone 5 in the notes.
