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
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)
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)

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.

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.
