    hey people, i have recently updated to IOS 6, it is a great update. Just having one kind of annoying problem, my battery life has been worse since. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it just something to do with my iPhone? idk, i need help, please.

    I had this issue as well but i think I've managed to fix it. Trouble is I can't pinpoint what exactly has done it, as I changed a few things.

    There were some reports that the 'raise to speak' Siri function had activated itself and was draining the battery. I went into settings and although this was set to 'off' I toggled it on and then off again and did a hard reset.

    I've also turned genius for apps in location settings off, as well as all the other system location settings.

    Just for some background when I upgraded I did it via OTA and did not reset all my settings, which some people have advised.

    I left my phone overnight last night at 96% battery and in 8 hours it drained 4%.

    I'm thinking it has something to do with the raise to speak feature..

    Same on my 4s. If I don't charge the phone occasionally while at work I will be at around 25% with moderate usage. I have not figured out what is doing it. I turned off location services and that didn't seem to help. Turning off BT didn't either.

    I helped it a little bit by: turning off most of my Location services, and turned the icon back on (since update it was set not to show), that way i can see what is using it. still not Full Capability yet though :(

    I have an iPod touch and my battery life has definitely been worse. It doesn't let me see percentages but I definitely have been hitting the 20% low battery a lot faster than I was a week or so ago on iOS 5.

    My iPhone 5 performed about the same as it was with my iPhone 4S running iOS 6. I did just make a few adjustments mentioned in this thread above and will see if that helps a bit, too.

    Make sure battery percentage is off. My friend told me that long time ago he said that drain the battery.

    I don't think this is true, although I'd prefer to have the percentage off as it stops me obsessing over it. However, since I jailbroke my phone I can't turn off battery percentage even though its no longer jail broken.
