Is your iPhone/iPad battery draining super fast in the iOS6 beta?

    My battery on my iPhone 4s running the current iOS 6 beta is draining super fast as well on my iPad 3. Are other people having this issue and is there a fix for this?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Not seeing that issue here. Only advice is to check the developer forums, maybe others there have a solution.

    Only advice I can give is to set up as new. I restored from a backup on 2/3 betas and by 3 I decided to try and set up as new to see if it fixed it. Actually getting better battery life than I was on 5.1.1.

    I used to run beta 3 on my 4S.


    100% at bedtime, 92% in the morning, 78% after light internet use and listening to music on a 45 minute train ride.

    Got to work at 9:30am and noticed the iPhone was hot. By 11am I got the 10% battery warning, and the phone was never used from 9:30am onward.

    Battery was fully depleted and the phone switched off by 11:15am.

    This sounds like the same issue as when the 4s first came out. My girlfriends phone randomly started doing this last month. I ended up deleting her email accounts then adding them back on. Seemed to be an issue with gmail because it was fine once I did that.

    There are always people complaining about battery drain after updating iOS, betas or not. Sometimes a restore will legitimately help, but for the most part I think you all are batterychondriacs.

    When your phone is sitting on your desk, is warm to the touch despite not being used in 90 minutes, and the battery goes from 78% to 10%, that's not normal. Of course, it's beta software, but the previous two betas did not cause this behaviour.

    Definitely. I have said this before. Battery was just amazing in Beta1 and Beta2. Now it's just like iOS 5

    I restored my iPhone to iOS 6 beta 1 and it wouldn't let me do anything. It said I had to restore to the latest version so I put it back to beta 3 and am still having battery issues. Any other suggestions?

    You guys act like you're using publicly released software and that this stuff shouldn't be happening. This is a beta, not public software.

    1. Beta 1 expired.
    2. iOS 6 is in beta.
    3. Battery issues are to be somewhat expected.
    4. Go back to iOS 5.1.1 if you can't handle the battery issues.

    I have had loads of battery issues on my 4S with ios 6 and they all seem to relate to iCloud somehow. Did fresh restore etc none of it really seems to make any difference.

    Beta 3 battery is better than 5.1.1, at least for standby

    My iPhone was running great on battery until I was just at a festival where it also then drained really quickly with hardly any usage . I charged twice and the same happened

    Now I'm home its fine again. I'm wondering if this is dependant on the cell/transmitter you are connected to?

    At the festival I only had 2g with GPRS data coverage, at home I have 2g gprs with home WiFi.

    It could be 2g GPRS data draining it ?
