It's been 20 minutes and my 4s drained from 86 and now it's down to 72 :/
Maybe it's because I'm getting back my old apps after update
Edit : 3 min later and it's down to 70 :/

iOS 6.1 battery life.

Just wanted to start a thread to see if IOS 6.1 battery life whether its an improvement or not from 6.0.2 or 6.0.1. I know its a little early to be asking this. But Yesterday I drained my battery and it had in the usage stats: 9 48min of usage and 1 day of standby. Going to try to do the same work load and post my results on IOS 6.1. Feel free to do the same.

Battery life since iOS 6/6.01/6.1 has been outstanding on my iPad 2. I get between 15-24 hours doing a combination of web/games/audio streaming. So no battery complaints for me.

For the iPhone 5 they should try to pack more battery cells in the battery that would be awesome!

Not a really good tell yet but my battery life has always been great, this is with Spotify streaming in the background and lots of texting with facebook and some light browsing.

Is 6.1 still in Beta?

If it is you should be seeing some problems with Battery.

Betas are mean't for Developers only. If your not a Dev i suggest downgrading back to the latest version of iOS.

Just started with it

I have had serious battery drain issue and I am on my second iPhone. Yes I got my first one replaced. This one is no better so I was waiting for 6.1. After about 35 minutes of usage my battery reads 98%. Please note that I am experiencing battery drain only when I on 3G. Keeping my fingers crossed.

35 mins usage from just 2% lost?

That's great battery life for 3G.
