Anyone seen a hit with the location tracking (Starbucks)
def noticed it today...
7-8am- at starbucks down to 65%
I saw that coming and killed it before it even had a chance to kill my battery...
if you are out and about, it for sure affects the battery. At home or work, nothing much.
That's interesting. If navigation isn't running, I was under the impression that the phone didn't ping your location until it was awakened from sleep. I know my Walgreens card didn't pop up near the store until about two seconds after I woke the phone up.
I live down the street from my "favorite Starbucks" and passbook kept using GPS at my house so I disabled it for passbook.
So I haven't tested it but it doesn't sound quite right because even having location-based reminders don't even drain the battery like that.
Same usage as before, but I never disabled location services from Passbook. Actually with iOS6, my 4S is running about 20% longer than iOS5.
lol same here. I'm across the street. Just kept popping up on my screen.
So do we have to deal with it popping up everywhere we drive as there's one on every block?
It only checks for a couple seconds after you wake the phone. No noticeable impact to my battery life today.
No, it will only do that for the ones you select as your favorite locations.
What do you mean?
What if you're always checking your phone
not really a big deal in my experience
it does, however, kill the battery when you're within the area. Location Services will practically STAY on.
Yeah, I learned my lesson when geo-fencing first showed up in iOS5. Location based Reminders are cool but not worth the hit in battery life. And with PassBook capable of storing hundreds of location aware cards then (in my two day test) it's been terrible for battery life.
I turned off the location services also. It is a nice idea but honestly it takes about 5 seconds to unlock the phone and open the passbook app. The thing I do like is getting to my card in passbook is faster then opening the starbucks app.
No issues here and I have 12 different Starbucks and 3 targets favorited in my passbook. Battery life is the same here. Me thinks you are looking for ghosts where there are no ghosts.
I added two starbucks stores to my favorites. Battery life seems the same.
I've noticed a hit in work (the cta starbucks is down the street) therefore I turned mine off. I might turn it on when I am at home over the weekend and see if it keeps pinging it.
