    I plugged it in for 5 mins to sync it, so battery should actually be a % or two lower.
    It says it been plugged in since last full charge. No way for us to know your true stats.

    Hence the reason I stated it was plugged in for 5 mins or so.

    You can knock a few percent off the battery to account for the charging in that 5 mins (USB sync, not wall outlet) but its still crazy good.

    Apart from the album art on the lockscreen being different the actual lockscreen itself looks different to me. Can someone with a regular 6.0 lockscreen post up a screenshot so I can compare to make sure it's not just mind over matter? I have noticed that battery on my i5 is better than usual and it was already better compared to my iPhone 4. I used my iPhone all day yesterday but when I was about to go to bed I forgot to get the charging cable out of my bag. The phone was at 75% which surprised the hell out of me so now I'm going on my second day and that is definitely a first for me on the iPhone.

    That's what I'd like to know.... can I just "install now" with this update? or do I need to wipe and re-install?

    Restore.

    Battery life is definitely better.

    I took it off the charger 4hrs ago and I just dropped to 90%. This is with approx an hour of playing music.

    I tell you what I'm now at 97% after 3.5 hours since last charge. I intend to run it down so when it drops to like 10 or 5% I'll post up a screenshot along with info on how long it lasted.

    I think most of the time if you have an issue with Facebook on an iOS device the issues are on Facebook's end...

    After 19 hours and change I'm still at 50% :-) I have never gone a whole day on a charge on the iPhone. Unfortunately I was stupid and didn't put the screenshots into a photostream. So I connected for like 1 minute to get the pictures onto my computer. It wasn't enough to do any charging but the next screenshot will be off because of the brief connection

    i restored as new last night and can already tell that my battery performance is great (4S)

    too bad it is only beta and will more than likely change (hopefully not..)

    OK so after one day, which is pretty much astonishing to me I'm at 40%

    IOS 6.1 beta 1-img_0040_2.jpg

    IOS 6.1 beta 1-img_0041_2.jpg

    This is with regular use for me and you can see that after 4 hours I've only gone down 17%. Now ofcourse my use is not typical in the least I don't have a data plan so my cellular radio is always off and I'm sitting at my laptop 90% of my day which means I don't use my phone to do a ton of surfing etc. However this was the same with my iPhone 4 and getting more 12-14 hours between charges was unheard of much less 24.
