    It seems some are not happy with it who are using beta 5 and 6.

    And some here seem to want to downgrade back...are you concerned when it is released the battery life even with all the new amazing features won't be worth downloading due to poor battery life?

    I can't wait for IOS 5 and love the look of notifications center but if the battery life is not as good then will you still want it?

    You get the feeling Apple knows better than to release an OS that will do anything but improve battery life.

    Almost every beta version of iOS I've used has had increased battery usage. Typically once its officially released or GM at least, it gets much better. More than likely they're doing increased amounts of logging and debugging than is normal.

    OP, you should get used to the fact that people have been complaining of bad battery life since iOS 1.0 and the first iPhone, and after every update since (and I don't see that ending any time soon).


    (I created this screenshot of a google search a few months ago, since their have been complaints of battery drain on iOS 4.2, 4.3 and now iOS 5).

    iOS 5 battery life wasn't as good as 4.2.10 for me but I could easily pull an entire day. No probs. At any rate, the betas were still better than android in my experience
