iPhone 4 and 4S Users Report Excessive Battery Drain with iOS 6
It seems like shortened battery life is always an issue with an Apple product at any given time, and in this particular case, iPhone 4 and 4S owners have taken their complaints to the Cupertino company's support forum.
"Some is massively eating battery life in 6.0. I have a 4S, and I had great battery life. 8AM-5PM workday and I would have 50 percent life left," Apple forum user Chris Howard explains. "I just upgraded to 6.0 last night and charged overnight...it is 2:20PM and I have 9 percent battery left without even touching my phone more than a few times today. I literally just watched the phone go from 15 percent to 9 percent in the last 10 minutes."
Howard isn't the only one complaining in the 16-page thread.
"Yup. I'm facing the same issue as well. Battery draining faster after upgrading to iOS 6. I have tried everything from turning off 'Notifications'/'Location Services' to reducing even the brightness on my phone to no resolve. I have also rebooted my phone and it doesn't help either," another user complained.
To be fair, not all iPhone 4 and 4S owners are having issues with the iOS 6 installed, but the ones that are report varying levels of battery drain. What about you? If you're an iOS 6 user, let us know how the battery life has been on your device since installing the update.
