    Wow that's nice. Did you update straight to the GM or did you start fresh? And is any of that usage music playback?

    Restored as new and redownloaded my apps through the App Store since I have a windows PC I couldn't sync my iPhone with it yet.

    That usage included 45 minutes of music playback (local storage). I don't stay signed in to Facebook or any apps like that when I'm not currently using them. I don't have location services on for anything including system services. I also did a full charge cycle twice in a row.

    The battery drains while browsing the web or playing a game over 3G though so keep an eye on your battery level. Also turning off stocks in notification center can improve your battery life a bit since it retrieves data EVERY time you pull it down.

    Overall as long as I can go 16 hours without having to charge my phone I'm good

    I might restore as new later on today but I still have a feeling my battery life won't change. I have just about everything disabled in my settings except data and wifi literally lol. But I'll try that out and report back

    I always charge my iOS devices to 100% before restoring them and I think it makes a bit of a difference (it shouldn't but I've had weirder stuff happen).

    I think you have an app "pinging for data" in the background and a good way to check that is charge your phone to 100% then disconnect the cable then lock it and keep it locked for 2 hours straight. Then check your usage. If your usage time is more than 1 or 2 minutes (minus any calls you get) than an app is "pinging for data" (your standby time should be around 2 hours). Also close any apps in the multitasking "cards".

    Just restored as new and still suffering the same drain issues. 10 minutes of use on wifi and I'm down to 98. Maybe it's my phone

    If you got your phone the month it came out then a battery replacement might be a good idea of you are going to use it for another year

    Hmmm... The only other things I can think of is brightness level and iCloud that could be affecting battery life.

    Brightness is usually all the way up since I'm walking around campus most of the time. Only thing I have on in iCloud is Find my iPhone (to keep it from being restored if stolen) and iCloud backup

    I have my brightness all the way down and iCloud off.

    You could get a battery case for your iPhone to extend your battery life

    My auto lock is on 1 minute. AT&T iPhones are known to have better battery life though. I'm on verizon

    Auto lock for my 4S is 1-Min. I have been using the phone all day, 12-hours off the charger and am at 90%. I loaded the GM the other day and just a basic restore from iCloud so I don't have my music or songs on this phone. No issues, heat or batter drain (AT&T)

    I guess battery life varies from phone to phone

    That's usually been my update method too......let everyone & their mums bog down the servers the 1st day or 2 (then proceed to complain about how slow DL time is), while I hop in 3-4 days later & get my devices updated nice & smooth
    Honestly, what's the big deal about waiting a few more days?? I tend to review the forums more than usual the 1st few days after an update to see the reaction/bugs. It's never stopped me from updating, but its nice to know what to expect.

    Happy updating everyone!!!

    On the iPad I went to the stock Music app and it gets pretty obvious from there. I live in the states though.

    I'm guessing they have to get the licensing agreements with the music labels country by country.

    They never allow stuff like that in the uk. Hopefully apple will have the leverage they need to convince them.
