    It's not crashing those issues stopped with the update thankfully however the battery sucks now on both the 6 and 5S now. I used to get through a day fairly well now I'm having to charge before I get midway through the day. iOS 8.1.3 is out now. Post feedback here.-imoreappimg_20150131_090528.jpg

    Other than to go through each and every setting, I don't know what to tell you. Is the cellular and Wi-Fi signal strength strong throughout the day? Bluetooth connectivity is and has always been my biggest source of battery drainage and therefore when I exit my vehicle, I immediately disable Bluetooth.

    So I went through my apps and I have 10 that are not optimized for the 6 and can honestly delete all but one as I need the Bank of America app. Hopefully this will help out.

    Yeah signal and wifi are pretty good. I'll check background settings and such as well. I don't use the Bluetooth anymore.

    I don't see why apps that aren't optimized for the 6 are going to be a problem. Is that something that Apple confirmed?

    Apps that aren't optimized for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus are nothing more than a minor inconvenience. Sure it would be nice to have them all perfectly optimized, but they are still fully functional. Too much ado about nothing.

    So I think I'll just restore as a new phone. Maybe this will help...

    My BofA app is not optimized for my iPhone 6 Plus, but it is not causing any issues. The one that did me in was the USPS app. As soon as I deleted it, and rebooted my device, my battery situation returned to normal. That was early on when I initially got the device. Anyway, sometime today I plan on putting my device in DFU and then restoring at as new like I always do shortly after an iOS update has been released. My device is running great as-is, but it's just what I do.

    Very true for the most part, but some apps, whether due to not being optimized or just poor coding, has caused problems after devices have been updated to a new iOS version. It's definitely minor to those of us who tinker with out devices and settings and test out beta apps, etcetera, but for the typical user, it can be problematic.

    Hopefully, it will. Be sure to make a backup and offload any important documents, photos, videos, music beforehand. Also, if you have a password manager app, be sure to export a backup, just in case.

    Did you try resetting your network settings, and then choose your wifi name again to sign back in?

    I tried ALL solutions there is to and still the same! I believe that the iPhone is not fully compatible with my current wireless access point. At least, that's what it seems to be. How come my previous phones, PS4 and X1 seems to work perfectly fine on the same wifi but not the iPhone?

    After every full charge i can only get a maximum usage time of 5-6 hours. Is that normal? I think whatsapp is eating up my battery life

    I run Whatsapp all the time and have no issues. Try looking at the optimized apps and restore if necessary.

    Just noticed yesterday that sharing and posting in my iPad is a bit dodgy now.
    Of course it's an iPad 3 so.....not surprised.

    I'm using several APPs that I bought when I had my iPhone 3G. They work great on my iP6 and iPad Air 2.

    After a couple days and a couple charges, I've seen some improvement in battery performance but, it's not back to where it was before the update. Today I'm going to start deleting a few apps at a time to see if that helps, maybe find one that's gone rouge. The overnight drain issue I had improved after the update, drain dropped by half so that's a plus.

    The screen shot you provided shows WhatsApp using up 34% of your battery. That means you're running that app a majority of the time which is going to eat at your battery life. Your usage, based on what you showed us, is normal.

    Just updated my 6+ before the Super Bowl & I haven't really noticed any difference. I'll check back tomorrow if I run across any issues.
