    Biggest mistake I have done! I was getting 8-9 hours on 6.0.1, now that I have udpdated.. My phone is acting like it's being used when it's just on standby!! The Apple Genuis bar told me that I needed restore FULLY and start clean in order to fix this problem. There was a "Defect" in the software.


    I cant even get 4 hours out of my phone without dying. Anyone else having this problem/solution? I let it drain to 0 then charge it back up, nothing.

    I think apple is still signing iOS 6.0.1 so see if you can fully restore back to 6.0.1

    Did you physically put the phone into Restore mode before starting the Restore? I had the same battery problems as you, but it's much better since I did the Restore. Still not as good as 6.01, though.
