Or does it auto disconnect like android to save battery?
You'll waste more battery waking the iPad than by just leaving wifi on.
Don't worry about micro-managing your battery.
Nope, if you lose it or someone steals it, you'll lose your only hope of tracking it down.
Not worth the hassle imo, it's not that big of a battery hog.
I leave mine connected. I have no complaints about battery life.
I never mess with wifi on/off on my iphones or ipads. Not enough effect in my experience to justify worrying about it.
I believe that it auto-disconnects after a given length of time.
You already get 10+ hours on the iPad. Not worth the hassle to save slightly more battery (maybe).
If you disconnect it, you won't get email or push notifications and your Newsstand items won't auto-download, nor will your iCloud backups run.
On my retina iPad mini I can go almost a full week of standby and about 16 hours of screen time without having to charge the battery, and that's with both WiFi+LTE on. You don't need to worry about managing battery life on it like you would with a phone.
Are you really worried about battery life on an iPad??
Life is too short for OCD crap like turning off wifi periodically to save battery.
Do u use these devices or are these devices using YOU?
Sounds like da latter
Life is to short to call non-OCD things OCD.
OP, you won't get better battery life turning wifi off, but you will get better battery life if you turn off "Ask to join networks".
My HTC One phone looses about 40% battery overnight with wifi on, and 3% with wifi off. My iPad Air looses about 5% overnight with wifi on, and streaming Pandora via Bluetooth. Don't bother with managing the iPad battery.
Alundra, why not test for yourself?
Compare how much your battery % decreases overnight with your wifi on and off.
I used to only turn Wifi on as required on my first couple of iPads. I then just started leaving Wifi enabled all the time and never noticed any appreciable drop in battery life and it was worth the convenience. I think IOS7 will cause a more noticeable drop in battery life due to the additional standby functionality like background app refreshing etc. but I haven't had the need to actually measure it as battery life is still great.
try every 15mins, LOL,
