    When you do turn iCloud back on, you should only enable one thing at a time. Such as contacts or calendar or mail, etc.

    That usage doesn't seem bad to me at all, especially if the device is a year old.

    unfortunately it comes with a price - no iCloud account on the device

    It will take several days, but you should put iCloud back on but with all the services turned off and test it for a day, and then re-enable them one at a time (-and turn the other off when you enable a different one) and test for a full day. At least that will give you a good idea of where the problem lies.

    welp, they replaced it with a New one! by default though. they were out of refurbs and the Genius i had must've been on some happy pills

    now, the good and bad.. he ran diagnostics and the battery checked out fine but he was getting a springboard crash. typically the tell the customer to Restore as New but since i have already done that he went with the fact that my device gets warm to hot while charging (charging issue) - great, whatever.

    so last night i was setting my new phone up only to find out that i can no longer use my grandfathered google exchange info (contacts/calendar/push email) Wow. so i moved everything over to my iCloud account

    so far battery life is great! AND it came loaded with 6.1.2 .. (jailbreak time?)

    Great they took care of you, my battery is horrible on my phone. The bad thing is I do not even use my iPhone 5 and at the end of the day it either has the same amount of battery my Blackberry does or a little more. I use my Blackberry all day and do not touch my iPhone unless I am doing something on my Blackberry and want to glance at a contact or date.

    Well I had mine swapped out for a brand new one 2 days ago, I have not used it yet seeing I have another phone. It still has 6.1.2 I think.

    In my personal experience, carrier signal strength and wifi have been the the two biggest factors in my battery life.

    If I'm out and about in an area where signal strength is weak, then I see some pretty decent battery drain. Though to be fair, my Android phone would have drained even faster, so I don't think it's phone specific.

    In an area with a good strong wifi connection. I'll only lose 10-20% battery of the course of the workday, and that's only with a decent amount of usage.

    Everything except bluetooth is turned on.

    Even then, 'bad' battery life in my iphone was still better than a 'good' day on my Android phone, so I can't complain.

    Apologies if the above has already been covered, I did not read all 4 pages of this thread.

    I'm having the same issues on 6.1.2 (see my post here http://forums.imore.com/ios-6/254898...-question.html)

    My iphone 5's not even 2 weeks old yet and I can't believe the poor battery life. I was so pleased it came with 6.1.2 but now I wonder if it was a good thing as I'm dropping 1% every 15 minutes and that's in SLEEP mode.

    From what I can see I only have 4 options now:

    1. Keep the phone and put up with it (Not a good option)
    2. Remove ALL the user apps and return them to my phone 1 by one to see if any are causing the problem (Too much of a ba11 ache)
    3. Upgrade to 6.1.3 (Though the same issue has been reported in many cases and I'd lose JB)
    4. Go back to the Apple Store (It's an 80 mile round trip and they may just tell me there's sod all wrong with it and send me packing)

    Dilemma!

    5. Check your social networking apps , if applicable, to see if they are constantly being updated. Furthermore, check the frequency of the pull times on your non-push email and then check to see what may be using your location services often. For instance, do you have any apps like Starbucks, Walgreen or even the Passbook app that may be checking your location quite frequently? Finally, if you're not on Wi-Fi, how great of a cell signal are you getting? Poor cell signal can ravage a battery.

    I've got the fetch set at every 30 minutes for the email. Location services are only on for FindMyiPhone and Weather. I've got Starbucks and Passbook but they're turned off in Location Services.

    My cell signal is good for the most part of the day. I say the most part because it only get's a poor(ish) signal for about 10 minutes of a day during my commute.

    How can I check/change the frequency social networking apps check for updates?

    Look in the settings or options or preferences inside your social apps, if available.
