    How to save Battery Usage!! *Until the Next Beta*


    Completely turn off all location services..

    After stopped using an application, always remember to close it down VIA Multitasking feature..

    Avoid use iCould until next Beta or the Beta after..

    Lastly Try avoiding going into *Setting* it's taking up a lot of battery.

    Please explain how going into the Settings is using up a lot of battery?

    Can you also define what you mean by "A lot"

    I know it sounds weird, but if you leave Settings running in the background it tends to drain the battery faster (at least on mine). Settings is an application just like any other, it has the capable of draining the battery just as much as any other app (especially when its full of bugs because its in beta).

    I do not know if Settings.app will drain the battery quicker or not, but I can see how it would. Apparently there's a bug in iOS 5.0 beta 1 where some HTTP connections are left open. Settings.app does open connections, especially when looking at iCloud settings, so it could easily leave a connection open and drain your battery.
