With airplane mode on, I lose between 0-2%. Haven't really checked when I left wifi on except for a couple of times, but it's usually pretty close, maybe an extra percent or two. 3G is always off, notifications/location services on for select things. This is on 5.0.1

12 hours, about 4 percent. That's with WiFi/push/cell data on and checking 6 email accounts every hour. iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0.0.

See mine actually gains battery because I CHARGE IT. For the love of Pete....put the damn thing on a charger at night and you won't have this problem.

The night after I updated my 4S to 5.1, I lost 64%. Since then, it's been about 35-40% each night. Absolutely ridiculous. 5.1 battery improvements my ass.

I used to only lose a few percent overnight on 5.0.1, and tonight I went from about 65% to 30% in the morning, using 5.1. I had 14 hours of standby, and 12 hours of usage. I definitely wasn't sleep using my phone, so there's some issue there. :eek:

4 to 6% lost

4S ios 5.1 lost 4 to 6% in a seven hour period with airplane mode on.

With ios 5.01 no lost in the same time frame with airplane mode on.


With ios 5.1, under 1/2 hour of phone use and 10 messages battery had 13% remaining charges in a 20 hour time frame.

I used to lose about 20% overnight, but then I found out I had Siri Raise to Speak enabled. I turned that off and now I'm losing about 3-7% a night.

The last time i left my phone unplugged all night i lost about 6%

I am curious to those of you who lose over 20% every night, why do you not just plug it in while you sleep?

Wouldn't you want your phone to be ready to go all day when you wake up?
