    I have always left wi-fi and location services switched on with my IP4 and find that I get very good battery life. I have always had email push and notifications switched off.

    Anyway recently I needed to switch notifications on (still have email push off though) and have been surprised to find that my battery life hardly seems any worse, if at all?

    I seem to remember something about Apple changing the way notifications were handled a little while back, and wonder if this had a positive impact on the battery?

    Can anyone enlighten me on all things notifications related? :)

    My thoughts would be as they are 'pushed' down from a server it shouldn't make much difference. the iphone isnt pinging to check if updates are available, unlike emails.

    This would support your findings :p
