    my suggestion to the people who are upset about iOS 6 battery performance would be to try it after you do a Restore as New Device for a little while. IF that still does not do it for you then just restore back to a recent backup. of course it is a PIA to setup everything afterwards but can be worth it in the end

    just as a reminder; we are getting very close to Apple closing the 5.1.1 window and people will have no choice but to stay on iOS 6

    Nothing worked, restoring as back-up, restoring as a new phone, nothing. Oh well, I need a new device anyway and here is my reason!

    try this: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings

    then do a power cycle before you make any assessment

    It seems that the battery last longer than on iOS 6. But my devices' batteries doesn't make me disappointed for a single time.

    Excellent!! Way better than any of the iOS 5 versions 5, 5.0.1 fixed initial bug I had, 5.1 was close I would say, 5.1.1 was ok but not quite as good. Very noticeable increase for me. Currently at 5 hrs 6 min use and 1 Day 7 hrs stand by and showing 22% remaining. Typical use was text msg, few phone calls, several app updates/downloads, email 3 accounts, photo stream sharing/upload, web browsing quite a bit, fooling with settings and looking them over, some facebook browsing, lots of weather checking with local on so running gps. So quite pleased with this upgrade and the renewed battery life on 1 yr old 4s.

    Had a day where I simply watched the percentage of battery drop with every text I sent...Turned off location services, push notifications and it seems to be holding onto a charge a bit better now...Hopefully it stays this way....

    better yet just turn your phone completely off and you will save a shiit load of battery life/

    honestly you should not have to do what you are doing. i would highly suggest doing a Reset All Settings or Restore as New

    My battery starting crashing last week. Reluctantly, I did a Restore as New and it worked. What a PITA

    Good Luck

    I just updated today about 12:30/1pm-ish. After the iOS update 6.0.1 was complete I then just out of old (blackberry) habit did a power off/on and a reboot of my 4S. From there I just looked over everything that re-downloaded from iCloud to make sure everything was accounted for and in place. Check. Plugged in till that baby was full to the brim and since then, just peeking in now, I'm on 3h 13mins standby with 1hr usage and I'm at 96%. Still doing the same things I'd normally do prior to the update.

    On iOS5.0 with the 1 hr of usage, I would've been in around 90-92% by this point. So for me, I see an improvement with battery life already. Of course I'll keep an eye on it for next few charge cycles to gauge what kind of "normal" usage/standby stats I'll get

    So far, I'm happy with the update
