So i know with the latest beta update it fixed a lot of your battery problems. Mine however is the same on my iphone. For some reason My battery will drain pretty fast. But this isn't the big issue. It is that my phone will jump from lets say 70% down to 1%(I literally see it just drop magically) and then dies.

Once it dies i cant turn it on until i plug in a charger which it then turns on back to the 70%. I went back to 6.1.3 last night and then back to beta 4 this morning. Im still having the same issue though. I am gonna just stick to 6. I check the usuge time and it usually says 1 hour only lol. i just want to know if anyone else has had this issue.

Sorry for the long post but thanks to those who took the time to read haha

I find it hard to believe that it will just drain right in front of yours eyes, from 70% to 1%!

Have you tried resetting all settings? Restore as new?

Then you have a major battery bug my friend. Have you report your findings to the apple bug reporter?

Don't you have the copy of all the app's on your computer? if not then follow these steps:
  1. Open iTunes
  2. Select File in the Menu bar
  3. Then select devices
  4. Transfer Purchases from "your device name"

I think you problem is when you restored from backup it's usually the culprit in battery drain.

I'm running beta 4 on a 4s and I don't see any major issues. I setup as a new phone. Not sure if non devs can do the same though.
