    Since I did my software update to iOS 5.1 and now it seems my battery drains a lot quicker. Am I the only one experiencing this problem?


    Thanks

    I'm no expert but I read somewhere to delete your email accts and reset your network settings then put your email accounts back in. It seemed to work for me. Also there were a few other battery stretching measures that helped such as turning off compass and diagnostics automatically sent to Apple.

    I've not seen any issues. I think sometimes people tend to use their phones more after an update or upgrade. I think just "playing" around and checking out what's new uses more battery than usual.

    My battery has been awful. I seen a few posts on different forums that people who updated via iTunes and did a clean install are getting better battery life than the ones who updated OTA. I updated OTA. I'm going to try the above post to see if that helps at all

    I have 13 hrs standby and 6 hrs usage and have 17% on an Verizon iPhone 4.

    I didn't read any tips on what to do.

    I did a fresh install of 5.1 cause I wanted to remove my jailbreak anyway

    I checked all of my settings after update and found that under general>restrictions, Ping was back on after 5.1 update. I turned it off immediately this evening and think it will certainly help with battery. I also found a couple of apps that got put into notification center after 5.1 update and removed them. Notification center sucks up battery too since it is repeatedly searching for an update just like Ping. All seems back to normal now with battery. Hope this helps all or some of you with battery issues.

    I did a factory reset and then setup my iPhone 4 prior to updating to ios 5.1. Battery life has been better so far but then if you are a heavy gamer or socialite, battery life is bound to suffer.
