    No difference updating on the phone vs. iTunes, but the iPhone update is only 18 MB (6.1.2 -> 6.1.3).

    I think the only update was to fix the unlock bug.

    I thought it was just me, but yes. Safari does seem snappier.

    Along with patching at least 4 methods that were used for jailbreaking. Along with Maps for Japan fixes. Apple doesn't list every single change but I highly doubt there were any changes that will affect battery life in such a small update.

    I don't notice an increase or decrease in battery life. I also don't notice the snappier Safari experience as others are reporting despite loading page after page and telling myself "Look, it's snappier!" :)

    Only difference I've noticed is Safari has become temperamental. :mad:

    My safari seems to be the same as before however am just glad that our Japanese iPhone users can now know where they are going.

    Only difference i've noticed since iOS 6.1.3 is picture messages will no longer send over iMessage. It reverts to sms then sends.... which is odd.:confused:

    I'm on Vodafone UK if it makes any difference on a 32GB iPhone 5

    There is something different with Safari after I updated to 6.1.3

    Before the update, using Safari, if you were on a webpage at the very bottom of the page you could tap the top part of the screen near the black area and it would automatically scroll you back to the top in a second. Now after the update 6.1.3, that function no longer works.

    Can someone who updated to 6.1.3 try it and see. I use to love that function.

    Edit: Nevermind, it;s working now, that was weird, for a moment I lost the LTE Verizon, Time and Battery Meter bar at the top but it's back.

    Sorry, it seems to be working again now. I'm not sure what happen but for about 5 mins, I lost that black bar at the top that says LTE Verizon, time and battery meter, but I see it back now. That was weird.

    I lost mine for a few minutes too after updating. Force quit safari, reopened, and it was back to normal.

    I updated quickly, but got distracted :D

    Anyway, yeah, post update, it's still working as expected, so maybe it was just a momentary hiccup for you.

    This is a helpful thread, I updated the day before yesterday. This morning when I got up, my battery was down to 12% (it is normally 60-80% over night if I don't charge it(. It has never been anything close to this low before, but it doesn't sound like the cause is the 6.1.3 update

    More than likely some "stuck" app or service. Restarting the phone might get that part of it resolved. Alternatively could have been some connectivity issues and the phone ran down the battery looking for a signal.

    I was thinking along the same lines. I did reboot, and have looked for evidence of connectivity/network issues and haven't found any. My phone, which was at 97% when I made my first post, is now down to 72%. I haven't made/received any phone calls or used the phone for much else, except receiving about a dozen emails. This is definitely unusual battery usage for my phone and usage habits.

    No difference. But I've never had an issue with my battery life and honestly have been confused by those who did.
