    Getting tired of these "dot-dot" updates (fourDOTthreeDOTone fourDOTthreeDOTtwo). Sitting this round out. Don't use FaceTime. Not on Verizon. "Security updates"? Don't make me laugh.

    Here's something for an update, Jobs: SORT NOTES ALPHABETICALLY

    I'm not bothering with this one either since I'm on untethered on 4.3.1 and would like to keep my baseband unmodified. It's just too much of a bother to update for a featureless update.

    Agreed. No real reason to go to 4.3.2 unless you're on an old firmware and were looking to upgrade anyways.

    For people on 4.3.1 looking to upgrade...I don't understand why :)

    I went for it because the update is said to include better battery life and a fix to the sporadic FaceTime problems. I never had an issue with FT but figured what the heck. :)

    After a couple of hours of syncing, and seemingly endless resprings, I'm on 4.3.2 and happy so far. I haven't noticed any of the jittery animations 4.3.1 was giving me. So that's good. Still too early to say anything regarding FT or the battery.

    my battery is draining much slower now, so I'm extremely pleased with the update.

    I'm planning on upgrading because of the battery issue as well. Dropping 30% overnight is kind of ridiculous.

    So far after about 30 minutes of reinstalling stuff after the jailbreak, battery life is once again great.

    Sorry, I didn't know there were battery fixes in the update. I stand corrected!

    Not just battery life but there are some connection issues being fixed in this update as well! I hate featureless updates too but i'm glad this small one is bringing about helpful tweaking into making sure the iPhone runs more smoothly.

    I didn't realize there was a battery fix either. Tthe change log doesn't reflect that.

    My iPhone has the FaceTime aidz. When ever I use it I have to hang up and call them back because my side is frozen and they get a black screen.

    Umm, it might just be me, but I can't find any documentation about battery life for the 4.3.2 update. So for those saying it's intended to improve it, can you provide a link? Thanks.

    No offense to anyone, but every update there is people who say their battery gets better/worse. I think its the placebo effect.

    Here's the iOS wiki. Scroll down towards the bottom (just above the Apple TV section) and you'll see the 4.3.2 changes. Now I'm not sure if it's an improvement on how long the battery lasts or if it helps the accuracy of the battery meter.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_version_history

    The battery improvement isn't in any official change logs so I can't say with complete certainty that things are better. I have to wait and see how my usage goes and tell from that. I can say the animations on my phone are improved. Things seem to open and close with a more fluid motion compared to how 4.3.1 was on my phone.

    http://www.gottabemobile.com/2011/04/15/ios-4-3-2-update-seems-to-have-improved-battery-life-reporting/

    Starting at the sixth post down in this thread you start to hear mixed reviews about it helping and hurting battery life.

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2815566?start=15&tstart=0

    So far my phone percentage isn't going down as fast as it was before. For me it's been an improvement...so far. It's still too early to say for sure but it's promising.

    In other words, it's just like every iOS upgrade and every jailbreak. :D

    Oh, 4.3.2 makes my iPhone4 feel 'snappier', too. :)

    I can definitely say my battery life since upgrading to 4.3.1 has went down. I used to lose between 5-10% overnight, and now I lose about 30% overnight.

    Your welcome. :)


    You may be right. What I can say for sure is my battery drained noticeably faster going from 4.1 to 4.3.1 firmware. I've only had 4.3.2 installed for a few hours so I can't really say for sure.

    If 4.3.1 is treating you well then stay were you are. If you notice issues with battery life or FaceTime blackouts go for it! If anyone's phone was behaving as poorly on 4.3.1 as mine, it can't hurt. :)

    I only drop 0-1% overnight. But I keep my WiFI off. I think if I had WiFi on, then I'd see similar results to you.

    My battery was noticeably worse on 4.3.1 than 4.2 also. I thought maybe it was something I installed, I initially thought maybe it was iacces, but I went to 4.3.2 to see if it would solve it. I'll probably never know for sure though since I'm not reinstalling everything I had before anyway.

    4.2b3 - 5-6% an hour (I'm beta tester)
    4.2.1 - 4-5% an hour
    4.3 - 20-29% an hour
    4.3.1 7-8% an hour
    4.3.2 4-5% an hour

    Definite battery improvement, on par with 4.2.1. Tiny, unnoticeable upgrade in performance. Jailbreaking right now with redsn0w, let's see how it works with 107 packages installed.

    Is anyone having the one bar issue with 4.3.2? I jbed with RedSn0w and installed UltraSn0w, and I have one bar constantly right now in a place where I usually have four or five bars.

    That's an issue with Ultrasn0w, not iOS 4.3.2.
