Beta 4 has only been out for 11 hours so far, but has anyone experienced improved battery life? After the OTA was done from Beta 3 -> Beta 4 honestly it feels like my battery life is much better. What do you guys think? Is your battery life still the same? Is it much improved? Or just a disaster? EDIT: If you have any tips or tricks to improve battery life, it would be appreciated by everyone in the community if you could post what settings you changed or if you changed anything in general. Thanks! http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=17646737#post17646737 My Settings: Background App Refresh is turned OFF Location Services (Weather is turned off) (Seems to always update even though background refresh is OFF) System Services - Everything is OFF except for Cell Network Search (Mobile Network Search) Mail - Set to Fetch - Manual Reduce Motion - ON iOS 5: Understanding Location Services Each service in 'System Services' are self-explanatory. Cell Network Search will enable your device to pick up the best Cell Tower. (In theory, better reception = better battery life) Compass Calibration Supposed to help with True North and Magnetic North (Not sure) Diagnostics & Usages May collect data on your location to better help Apple with the Diagnostic & Usage logs (Not sure) Location-Based iAds Uses your location to display the proper advertisement by Advertisers Popular Near Me What apps are popular in your area (You might need to enable Location Services also) Setting Time Zone If you travel a lot, you should have this function enabled. It constantly updates to set the correct Time Zone. Traffic Has not effected the Maps application (Might have something to do with the notification section) Wi-Fi Networking Similar to Cell Network Search but for WiFi. Currently not widely used in the United States, but places such as South Korea use this function a lot. It will determine which WiFi connection is stronger and connect to that WiFi. Frequent Locations Used to determine your Traffic time to a certain destination (Updates occasionally) Go to General -> Accessibility -> Reduce Motion -> ON You will not get the 3D effect on the Homescreen which is known to cause some battery drain issues.
