    I did a full reset after it installed. iOS 6 is nice man! I especially like the tap to tweet in the notification.

    IOS 6, OTA install, iPhone 4:

    Battery life seems to have plummeted at about the speed of Facebook stock. My settings are the same for before the 'upgrade' (and this includes disabling some of the new 'features' - like Passbook and its location service), but I can literally watch the percentage drop as I'm messing about on the device. A little over 12 hours - mostly on standby - and it was at 10%. This was not an issue for the OS 5 upgrade on this phone.

    That said, battery life concerns seem to be constant with any initial Apple OS upgrade - be it iOS or OS X - and I'm not sure why Apple hasn't resolved that yet. It always seems to have to be fixed in a patch (sorry, Apple - 'update') later.

    Meanwhile, my iPad 2? Also an OTA upgrade but battery life seems fine. Meter barely budges.

    My iP4S holds charge like a sieve holds water. I've gone thru and turned off everything to try and save battery power but it just dies super quick. Did the reboot, reloaded the software but I've had to charge it three times today and normally it needs to hit the charger 2/3 of the way thru the day.

    Actually never have been impressed with the batt life of this compared to my BB 9650 but since 90% of the rest of the phone was amazing, I looked past it...getting depressed

    2 things i may suggest:

    1) try resetting all settings [Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings]
    *you will need to reconfigure most of your settings but may be worth it (check your email settings too)

    Or...

    2) restore device and Setup as New iPhone (No Backup)
    i suggest doing this and using your device for a little bit before loading a backup back onto the device so you can rule out some sort of wonky backup. you may want to just set it up fresh anyways

    FYI: i Setup as New when the GM was released and had 0 issues with battery performance (iPhone 4S)

    I agree with blink, although I hate setting up as new. I was having same issues as you and that fixed them. It's a pain if you have a lot of apps. Make sure to save all pix and messages to your computer first. Good luck!!!

    Just an update cannot complain, what I suggest is that anyone having an issue do a complete restore (I know it SUCKS!) but whenever there is an update I just make sure my contacts and pics are backed up and don't care about anything else and restore back to factory to avoid any bugs. I originally backed up from iOS 5.1.1 and update to 6.0 and accidentally restored and battery seemed to drain fast so I immediately went back and did a fresh install and it has been PERFECTLY fine.

    My story is almost about the same. Phone is getting extremely TERRIBLE battery usage. Like, less than 3 hours, terrible. On my iPad 2 on the other hand, no issues at all

    This whole 'do a backup, then restore, set up as a new phone and then restore the backup' lark - ideally while connected to your computer - rather defeats the promise offered in iOS 5 that the device is now a stand-alone product, able to seamlessly update, upgrade and operate via OTA installs and the iCloud.
    Apple is (mostly) fine as a hardware provider, but wow, their software - be it built-in to the iOS as half-baked (see Siri, Maps, Mail, et al) or it's implementation (like getting it to users in a form that doesn't break things) is terrible.

    Well, I actually did completely reset my entire phone, but when I set it up instead of setting it up as a 'New Phone" I restored from back-up. That is what many users are saying is my problem. It could be, I just didn't want to go through all that, probably will through, because 3hrs of usage is completely ridiculous

    Idk my friend sayed it sucks after the update but it seems ok to me. I thought it was kinda bad at first but I think it was because I was playing with the new maps and Siri lol.
