    I used to have to charge my Ipad 3 every 2-3 days or so depending on usage I picked up my Ipad today for the first Time since fri and last charge thurs and it was still at 84%. Ios 6 is much better on battery life then ios 5

    I think so too but see complaints in other posts about battery issues.

    I got 15 days of standby on my iPad 2 but my iPhone 4S never lasts 24 hours.

    I've seen a few people say that the iPad has great battery life on B2, but the exact opposite on the iPhone.

    I went back to 5.1.1 because of crappy battery life on the phone

    iPhone 4S great battery life, no need to fret about going to work and worrying about battery dying.

    Unfortunately beta 2 has caused issues to my battery life. Not as good as iOS 5 :(

    I guess it somewhat depends on the user. Still waiting for beta 3 to pop up anytime soon!

    I would say mine has been worse since switching over to the beta on my 4S.

    Regardless though I still have to charge multiple times a day...
    I take mine off the charger at 7AM. By 2PM or so at work I'm usually around 20% so I'll charge it up to 80% then that generally lasts me the rest of the night.

    I was having no battery life problems until yesterday and suddenly I'm dropping several % per hour without doing anything. Apparently I have a gremlin process somewhere that hasn't been resolved by closing all apps and rebooting. So, I might need a reinstall. Been trying to wait for beta 3 but might have to do it unless anyone has better advice.

    Less than one hour of battery life? Somethings not right there.

    Terrible battery life on my iPhone 4 with beta 2. All day usage brings me down to around 5-10%

    I have the new iPad and the iPhone 4S, and I've noticed improved battery life on both!

    My 4S battery is fantastic on beta 2 compared to iOS 5.1.1 ... really pleased, and will continue to be if these improvements make their way into the final release.
