    My battery is draining so fast. I unplugged it at 9am at 100% and it now has 30% at 10.30am.
    I've been trawling through all the internet posts and have followed lots of different tips about how to conserve the battery and I seem to now have everything turned off and it's still draining!
    It's only been draining this quick in the last week.
    Any advice appreciated!

    Check to see if any of the location services is active,that usually kills the battery.

    Which iPhone do you have? How long have you had it? And what changed from a week ago?

    It's an iphone 4s, I've had it about 8 months.
    The only thing I can think that I did last week was update facebook?
    Can you tell me where location services is please?


    I've found location services now and turned it off.

    Also look in notification center and remove out as much as possible. And with Facebook, open the app and then go into settings within the app and check the individual connected apps for push notifications.

    I'd be interested if you do find out what the problem is.

    I have got an iPhone 5 and have been through a couple of replacements but am still getting massive battery drain. Having said that, I have never gone from 100-30% in one hour. Mine has been known to lose about 40% in an hour just internet browising (still too much IMO)

    I have experimented with turning on/off location services/bluetooth/Wifi etc and they definitely do make a difference, but not that much. For me, it seems mobile data is the battery killer, but I can't really turn that off or the phone becomes useless to me.

    When I did turn it off when I was abroad, it doubled my battery life to 6 hours usage and 2 days standby.

    The same happens to my 4s about owned 1 year.

    Do not forget close the apps when locked your phone . Also close the "Location Services" :D:D

    Call AppleCare, that is not normal and will probably qualify for a replacement right away, provided the device has no physical/liquid damage. However, keep in mind that modifying iOS (such as in jailbreak), prevents Apple from repairing or replacing it.

    How long have you had the phone? When the you first notice the issue? What changed just before you noticed the issue? I think your battery is fine. I think you just need to adjust some settings. Post back and let me know.

    Misleading, if it's jailbroken just restore it.

    Which that would probably resolve his battery issues assuming he restored as new.
