    I use an iPhone 4S ugraded to iOS6. Did location services get removed or movedto a different spot in the settings app? I can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks!

    I wonder.....if I turn off all location sevices except for maps if that will help save on battery. Any thoughts?

    Most likely. The more your phone is working, the more battery its using

    But, just because they are turned on doesn't mean it always accessing something.
    Only items with a gray or purple arrow have been accessed recently or within the last 24 hours.

    Settings> privacy> location services> system services

    Look at the ones with the grey arrow next to them. These are what drain your battery be it the cloud based traffic mapping to the location based iAds. These do not show the GPS icon unless you tell them to so you never realise there firing up the GPS chip.

    Be careful not to compromise the device though. :)
