    Hi guys, I have updated both my ipod touches too 2.1 the other day,both batteries were fully charged. A few hours later the battiers were dead. Theres a post already about this issue http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1704094&tstart=15 seeming to plague other ipod touch users too. As an iphone user I am skeptical of updating my iphone because I do not want a battery issue with my iphone either. I thought I would let yall know about this issue.

    WOW... I also thought I left my ipod running during the day, but that wasn't the case.

    I had my iPod Touch fully charged, and the next day when I got to the gym, I had a 20% alert on it. It had to be the firmware. This better get fixed very soon.

    I don't think 8 people out of the millions of touch owners worldwide constitutes a "plague" yet. Maybe it will eventually, more likely it's an isolated issue.

    What?! For me it's com-puh-leeeeetely the other way around.

    My iPod Touch checks the mail every 15 minutes, during the night as well (when it's not charging), and in the morning it's usually down to 50-60% charge. But after installing 2.1 it can go all night and show full charge in the morning. I'm seeing nothing but a big fat improvement in battery life here...

    Keep in mind that the battery indicator and the actual battery life are two different things. It needs to be recalibrated once a month or so (I did it after installing 2.1).

    Same here. Fairly impressive battery gains in addition to the faster UI, app installs, and stability.

    I installed 2.0 when it first came out and the battery was draining within a day. The solution was the turn off "Location Services" in the settings. I haven't had any problems with 2.1, but take a look and see whether that setting has any effect for you.

    Yeah, I always keep Location Services off on iPod Touch. That whole hotspot triangulation thing doesn't work in my neighborhood anyway.

    Questtion for those having the issues, did you do a full restore, or did you just update. Also have any of you calibrated the battery?

    Where?

    Where are you guys getting 2.1? It's not on apple's website and when I plug my iPhone in it says 2.0.2 is the current version.

    its not the iphone,its the 2.1 for the ipod touch. But were worried that the same issue is going to be on the iphone too.

    It was released for iPod Touch immediately after Apple's keynote on September 9. For some reason it's not being released for iPhone until today, perhaps to distribute server load better, or maybe it simply wasn't ready.
