    Default iOS 6.1.2 Now Available

    so after doing the update & charging up to full, here's where I'm at battery wise. According to my previous stats on the other 2 iOS's it appears that my battery life on 6.1.2 is a tad bit improved. Previously by time I had an average of 4-41/2hrs of usage I'd be hovering around the 55-ish % mark, but overall getting up to 8hrs usage by time I was nearing the 5-10% mark. So, now I'll see how far of usage i get when I reach the 10% mark on 6.1.2 now.
    Either way, I'm happy with battery life

    Given what you and I have spoken to before about various issues with you and updates... Have you thought about seeing a Professional about this problem? LOL

    I did do 6.1.1 like you asked me and have not done 6.1.2 and don't have any plans to because the issue it resolved does not effect my phone. That is my story and i am sticking to it.

    Also, make sure your Bluetooth option isn't set to ON, if you dont use it. Turn off "location based iAds" and "setting time zone". Both of those can be found under settings/privacy/location services/system services. In addition to those, turn off your location for anything that isn't absolutely necessary to zone in on you as well.

    As of now, since upgrading my battery life is right on par according to my previous stats. I'm at 93% with 1hr usage and 3hrs 37mins standby.
    I was going to use these suggestions you gave me a while back Pink as well but things have smoothed out only because when I first upgraded I played alot for 2 days with different things and now that I have everything set as I want my battery life is fine.

    I also took a tip from Ally K actually and turned off "Everything" notifying me on my lock screen except phone, messages and email and of course out of respect to JustMe'D I had to keep ScoreCenter on too...LOL

    indeed, I remember our convo on that as well. funny that you mention turning some things off in the noti center, because today, WHEN or IF I get a chance, I'm going to re-evaluate what I have in the noti center as well, and probably shut a few things off that arent absolutely necessary to have notifiy me immediately either

    Blink given what you know about iPhone and all of the other advice what would you do or try to resove this issuse? i am curious. I know that when I updated to 6.1.1 I could not beleive how bad battery life was but I reached out to Pink who gave me some good advice as well as what she mentioned above here to others.

    I figured out it was just because i was playing with and shutting down things i did not need and especially when Ally K had mentioned that she shut off all notifications on her lock screen as I mentioned above, I did the same thing and have had much better battery life since then. Now it is about even and standard with the best I have ever had. Just thought I would let you know this.

    With the professionals I was just trying to do my part to get you over this fetish of yours with 1s on the badges and such...LOL I usually take a Xanax and now I feel much betterrrr!!!! LOL

    Exactly what I did Pink was go into the notification center and look at every app be it news or what ever and turned everything off from the lock screen except for the 4 I mentioned that are felt were important. Now I left on badges and even turned sounds off for many except the 4 if they have sounds. With the others I figured i could check my notification center during the day and I "Always" have at least a few ScoreCenter-ESPN notifications in my lock screen so that is when I look for other things that I don't need to read or see right away. That is how I did it and it helped my battery life alot. When I talk, text or use a few particular apps be it on WIFI or cellular 3G is when my battery gets used the most.

    Hope the clears up my situation so you know what I did. Heck I have learned alot from you and I learn from everyone. Thank you again.

    I hate you!!!!! I was just turning on my location services to set something up and check on my Find My iPhone App to make sure I could find out through iCloud and now it put a 1 on my settings icon for 6.1.2 and I did not want to upgrade. now i am goingto be like you and it is going to drive me crazy unless I do upgrade. Did I say I hate you!!!

    guys, i shouldn't have to start micromanaging a stock firmware to get decent battery life. it should be satisfactory right after the download or a battery cycle. AND i refuse to start turning options OFF just to get it to where it should've been originally

    hell, with that analogy how much battery would i preserve if i just shut the damn thing completely off?? BS

    While I was making a comment on what I did for myself... I without a doubt agree with you and if not for the idea of just turning off lock screen notifications I DO agree with you Blink so please don't think I disagree with you as just the opposite.

    Ok Ms. Smarty pants I just upgraded and everything went fine, Just had to turn up my backlight a bit but that happened during the last update as well so there.

    I pulled up the big boy undies and did it. I hardly ever get the OTA notification and I think I only got it because i was messing with location services although I don't know what that would do with it.
    I hope you are satisfied....

    I'm still having issues with my exchange account........ Didn't fix anything waste of my time update. Anyone know if gmail through exchange has a device limit? Because that's the only reason I can think of at the moment...

    I understand what you're saying, and i agree. Also, I don't agree with "dumbing down" the phone either by starting to turn off all or just about every notification if you need/use/rely on them of course. I actually have a couple that I never used, and took them out of the noti center.

    and hey.....on the other hand, if you shut your device off completely, you'll definately preserve plenty of battery life

    also, here's where I ended up last night right before plugging in to charge. If I had to estimate I'd say 15% of that usage was 3G and the rest wifi, so winding up with 8hrs of usage could have been achieved if I didn't charge up at that point.

    Pink-a-licious 4S doin' the TapAtalk!!
    ##UPDATE## I just thought I would let you know what I did Pink. I took everything I DO NOT use out of my notification center and everything I DO use on a regular everyday basis I left in and turned them all on but not all still on lock screen so just to go along with Blink who I AGREE with his statement of not turning everything off, at least i am still getting what I want but W/O the backlight coming on every time there is a news update from one of my apps or a score from ESPN. It has been since last night that I told you I upgraded and my battery life is fine and is about as normal as it was before.

    I think the only difference is that you spend more time on WIFI than I do as i spend more time on 3G until I get home, then WIFI until the phone goes off when I go to bed. I DO notice though like today at work during lunch I was at 100% and for a half hour while still on lunch break I went on WIFI and read all my news apps and went down almost 7-8% and not as much at home because I am close to my router as opposed to where I am at work and where the router is located so I look at it as it has a longer reach to the router at work.

    That is my take anyway right or wrong but the new update is doing fine for me. just wanted to let you know. Also went out today and bought a larger pair of boxers for the newest update when it comes out...LOL
