guys and gals,
anyone of you experiencing a huge spike in battery drain after upgrading to firmware 3.01? On 3.0 my iphone 3gs had no probs but after my upgrade last night he ran out of juice within a few hours while I was sleeping. This morning I recharged it but an hour later the phone is allready down to 80% and feeling warm. I guess there is something running in the background but I cant figure out what. Turning the phone on/off doesnt seem to do a thing. Any ideas or personal experiences?

iphone battery drain after upgrade to ios 7
guys and gals,
Why does my iPhone 5 battery drain so fast after the latest upgrade?
Hello all,Ive upgraded my iPhone4 to IOS 4.3. After doing so, Ive done a full charge (after it completely drained). I unplugged it at 10:00 AM today and by 16:00 the battery was down to 50% (with basically no usage during the day). I have push, bluetooth, wi-fi, Hotspot, Location Service disabled. I also disabled Ping on iTunes, re-sync the phone and done the Restrictions Disable Ping.It is still draining a lot of battery as none of these above solved the problem.What can I do? The phone is going to be 2 months old...
Updated my iPhone 5 to iOS 6.1.2 a few hours ago, and I feel that my iPhone 5s battery life has gotten ALOT worse than when it was on iOS 6.1.1 (although battery life was pretty bad there too). Phone was 100% after a full battery charge, 95% after recieving a 3minute call (WiFi & cellular off). Played Subway Surfers for a few minutes, battery went down from 95% to 89%. Phone is now currently on 71% with ---- USAGE: 35 minutes STANDBY: 1hour
-NOTIFICATIONS / PUSH NOTIFICATIONS ARE ALL OFF EXCEPT FOR MESSAGING AND PHONE CALLS
-BRIGHTNESS AT ITS LOWEST
-NO ACCOUNTS SYNCED ON MAIL
Also, phone is a bit warm. This hasnt happened with the previous iOS updates. I updated through iTunes by the way.
I am on IOS 6.1.3 64Gb IPHONE 4s. Battery drains within 1/2 day with the same amount of use as prior to 6.1.3 install.
What is the issue and are there any pointers on what to do to prevent the battery drain?
Once again having a drainage issue from iOS 6.1.3!!! This is horrible! EXTERMINATE THE BUGS!
Ios 6.1.2 is still having battery life issues on iPhone, anybody else having battery drains?
Downloaded last night, went to bed with 96% battery woke up 6 hours later to 1% battery! Never happened till I updated. Anyone else?
Is there any reason why the iphone 5 battery is draining so fast after updating to iOS 6.1.2?, before this update my battery was working perfectly
Hello everyone i have very dengrous issue of battery drain on my iphone 4s, 5 and 5s gold running on ios 7.0.4 can anyone have solution of this problem
So I went to the Apple Store locally today to have my iPhone 4 examined for the post iOS 4.1 battery drain and heat issue.
It took about 90 seconds for them to identify an issue and replace my phone. Apparently the 4.1 update changes the modem software rev and actually creates a background process that is unnamed and never stops. Its a bug apparently.
My iPhone 4 was one of the original 600,000 sold on day one. In fact, mine was delivered the day before the release. I am thinking the first phones might be more susceptible to this.
So, the replacement is running 4.0.2 and the older modem FW rev and is absolutely wonderful again. No 4.1 until this issue is resolved.
Point is, there is an actual issue with SOME of the phones, so dont let anyone tell you youre wrong and you shouldnt have to disable ANYTHING to use your phone normally.
The guys at my local store were very helpful and interested in this issue.
Anyway, if youre troubled by the battery drain, take your phone back and let them try to identify if yours is affected. After all, if we want the bugs fixed, we need to let them know and this forum really wont do that.

I have noticed an increased amount of draining from my iPhone 4, ever since the new iOS 6.1 was released yesterday morning. I have only used minor iMessaging and my battery has seemed to drop a percentage every two minutes or so just in standby. It is sad to say that the Battery Bugs have not been removed and this problem needs to be resolved. Who else is experiencing drainage?
Why does my battery drain so fast Now that i have the IOS 5 I am using a iphone 4 should i restore and reinstall
anyone else have this problem
it started happening after I downloaded the new software also my battery gets very hot when charging with wall charger
i took it into my local apple store in Calgary they checked battery did there test thing said its fine
Did somebody notice a major power drain issue after iOS5 upgrade on iPhone4? Last night at midnight, it was ~90% charged. In the morning, it was 37% charged. By noon, it was dead. I didnt make even 1 call during this time. Connected to Wi-Fi at home and strong 3G signal. Bluetooth is off, location services are off, all that stuff. The same phones battery would last for 40 hours with my normal usage with IOS 4.3.5. Anybody knows if any specific feature of iOS5 is causing this battery drain?
My iPhone battery was good up to iOS 6.0.1, with 5 hours of usage (2G) and even up to 5 days on standby! After upgrade to 6.1, it loses 2~3% battery every hour on standby (Wi-Fi and 3G off) and only lasts for 1 to 2 hours of usage before dead. It is not as bad as some who report losing 10% of battery every hour on standby, but to me, the battery life has reduced to a quarter.
I have gone through many suggestions and solutions from reset and restore to using old backups and so on, but none of them worked.
With my recent test, I am almost sure that the bug is in iOS. I charged the phone to 100%, unplugged it and set the Airplane Mode to ON and guess what? It is 5 hours now and the battery is still on 100% of charge!
I am using 2G network and the signal in my area is very good (full antenna). I think the problem is in communicating with the BTS towers and nothing related to apps or settings.
It is obvious that the Airplane Mode saves battery, but in recent iOS updates, its 2G network that ***** battery more than usual.
Are any of you with battery drain issue have tested this or may test it and report the results?
A week ago I realised that my phone was heating up rapidly and my battery was being drained alarmingly fast before days end. I used to go a whole day and would only hit 50% battery use.
After some research, reading and testing of my own, I can say with some certainty that after turning off the push notification and location services on my phone battery life has dramatically improved returning to pre update performance and the overheating has ceased.
This is by no means a fix, as I believe the problem is far from resolved but rather a temporary solution until apple can identify and resolve the problem. I that this would help whomever is out there experiencing the same problem.
Apple we need a fix for this problem asap as we should not have to limit the functionality of our phone due to some buggy code.
Okay .. i like to preserve my iphone battery life and lifespan longer. My iphone 3G settings has 3G off, Wifi off, Bluetooth off, Push off, 1 min Auto-lock, Auto-brightness off, and brightness about 10%. I try not overcharge it .. I keep it charged for about 2 hours or 2 hours and half.
What confuse me is to drain or not drain the battery completely before charging? Should I charge it when battery is drained (it shows battery picture)? Or Should I charge it when the battery is low (it shows the 10% battery message)?
PS: In the link, http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html , on Use Iphone Regularly is not clear to me.
My iPhone 3Gs batter has been draining at an alarming rate for the past couple of days. Is this because my battery is simply old and dying (Ive had my iphone for about a year), or is there something I might have done thats making it drain so quickly all of the sudden?
For example, just last night I charged it to 100% and took if off the charger thinking I was going to use it but just went to bed instead. When I woke up (approximately 8 hours later) my phone was dead. I used to be able to go the entire day constantly using my phone and the battery barely reach 50%, so I dont understand how the battery performance could just decrease so dramatically overnight.

Iphone 4 iOS 4 OS 4.2.1
Ive had my iPhone on 4.3.1 since the day it came out and it has worked perfectly as it has in the past. Today i took my iPhone off my charger in the morning and about an hour later it had lost 20% battery. I charged it back to 100% and later in the day took it with me and a few hours later i noticed that i only had 22% left, surprised, i turned it off so it would last till i got home but when i turned it on half an hour later it had lost all but 6% while it was completely off. I dont think it has anything to do with the iOS since it has been fine the past few weeks. I havent updated anything on it recently either (no new apps etc) I also had all apps closed. My iPhone was also somewhat warmer than normal today. Anyone have a similar problem or know what is wrong with my phone.
any help appreciated, thanks

Got a new iPhone 4S in May this year. The battery life even before IOS 6 was bad but now its horrendous. As I type this its used 50% battery in 45 mins. I have turned brightness down, turned off all unnecessary notifications and iCloud and even deleted facebook app. What can I do to fix this. For a phone that cost £500 I would expect better! Any help will be gratefully received. Is there anyway I can speak to someone at apple? I dont know how to go about this and the nearest apple store is a 45 min drive from us!
Hi,I think we should change the topic / subject to--iPhone 4 battery drain even while standby..sometimesBy checking the usage hours one could observe that it goes up even though on standby..not all the time though.My first 1-3 days of use after a full charge was good, dont see usage hours going up. Once I received a text message and if I left it without reading it for a while and later upon checking I started to see usage hours shoot up even though it went to standby after receiving that text message (or did it? screen did go off).This doesnt look like a battery issue to me...its more to event triggered but Im not sure.Ill submit this to the feedback page as well and wait for a fix.Other observations..1. Experienced this behavior in iOS 4.2.1, 4.3 and 4.3.1 within a span of few months2. First notice this issue after enabling Calendars synchronization in Exchange while still with iOS 4.2.1. Turning Exchange Calendars off did not help.3. Obviously upgrading iOS doesnt fix it yet.Apple case reference: 212050695P.S. Does Steve know about it?
Tried 4.2.1, 4.0, 3.1.2, 3.1.2, 2.2
My iphone is draining battery like ****! Tried SAM,
Activating with original sim,
deleting some launch daemons,
turning off push and data access,
signing out of App Store,
Restored almost 30 times over past 60 days,
Reinstalled baseband many times,
Erased all content and settings
I never ever installed anything on iphone
I restored to firmware activated with original sim and still i see my battery 100..99..98..97..95..90...% in front of my eyes.
I turned on Airplane mode.. Still draining battery
No data usage is shown and correct stats are shown in Usage
Killed processes using Terminal..
I dont use mail app, itunes app
It is my costly paper weight
Also Warranty is already ended of Iphone 3G
For some reason i have 4.3.1 and lately, overnight my battery has been draining 20% +, it drains fast even if am in airplane mode. I have no apps running.
my view could be bizzare but i would like the guys working at apple to check / find out whether the possible reason for the battery drain is - leakage of power through some internal metal earthing or any metal area near the battery touching the metal body part which is killing the battery when in i phone is being used. this could be a problem in some or all phones. earthing causes the battery to leak power there by resulting in battery charge getting used up.
i am saying this bcoz some times i feel a kind of jews on my fingers when a little sweaty.
would like to know whether others using iphone 4S have experienced this kind of feeling of jews on their fingers
Ive had my iPhone 4 since February and never really had any problems with it. I have always had 3 email accounts, two of which push automatically, and all notifications and had good battery life (charge once at night, if that). Beginning the other day, a full battery will drain in about 4-5 hours with no usage. 2 hours if Im actually using the thing. Also, the phone is unusually warm.
In order to fix this problem I tried the following:
Shut off my iPhone (holding top button)Shut off my iPhone (holding the top and home buttons, I read this was different)Turned off all notificationsDeleted all apps that I had installed after and shortly before my battery life went to ****Went to the multitasking screen and closed out of every app listed
A similar issue happened with my fiances iPhone 3Gs and once she deleted her eBay app everything worked fine.
The part that confuses me is that this wasnt a gradual degredation of the battery. I havent even had the phone for 4 months!
Im out of ideas on what to do. Please help me
Note: I have Verizon iOS 4.2.8, which isnt listed as operating system option when submitting your question.
Recently i have purchased Iphone 3gs with software 3.1.2. Im facing a serious problem of battery drain. Without doing anything, the battery drains so fast. Is there is any way to over come this problem?
