    I have noticed since installing the iOS 6.0.2 update my battery life has decreased quite a bit. Has anyone else had this issue?

    I have had quite the opposite effect. Exceptional battery life.

    Yes, I had that problem. I did a Restore on the phone, and the problem went away. As a side benefit, I was finally able to sync via WiFi, which had never worked before. It's a bit of a pain (make sure you do a backup to disk) but was well worth it.

    After a reset it started to get better battery life then went south. I go to bed with about 50% left and is dead in the morning.

    Did you charge it in between days? That's incredible.

    6.0.2 is killing my battery rapidly!!! Thnk goodness I have an external battery because the rate at which it depletes is ridiculous. I'm hoping for a software update sooner rather than later.

    Ya that's BS in my opinion. Unless he's been using it in airplane mode or something.

    Not for me either. I've been getting 6-7 hours easily.

    iOS6 recent updates just for iPhones?

    I just have ipad3 and no iPhone... Since installing iOS6, I haven't seen any need to install the .0.1 or .0.2 updates... They appear to be mainly, if not solely, for the benefit of iPhone... Or...am I missing something?

    Glad my replacement iPhone 5 came with iOS 6.0! I'm at 25% with 4 hrs 30 mins of usage and 1 day 3 hrs of standby.

    All this with screen brightness at 50%, Bluetooth off and location services - system services Off.

    Some people are having great battery life while others are going crazy. :( 6.1 needs to get here fast.. Is there a month we can expect it?

    For one thing, try turning your Brightness Down, I have my Brightness set at -100% and I get Excellent Battery Life with IOS 6.0.2 on both my Apple IPhone 5, and my Apple IPad Mini.
