wasn't 6.1.2 supposed to correct the exchange bug that was indeed responsible for battery drain?

i restored as new before the weekend and added the bare minimum apps that i needed and still the problem persists. hell i even stopped removed my Facebook app over the weekend too and made no difference. i've always been able to correct any issue i have ever had with my phone.. until now

stock iOS 6.1.2 BTW

i have an upgrade basically burning a hole in my pocket now and that's not good!

Is that the excuse you're using to convince yourself to upgrade or are you really having poor battery life with your current device?

When you upgraded to 6.1.2? Did you read the first screen about what the update was for Blink? it was for (2) things. The exchange bug & to improve battery life but never a mention about them being linked together. Sorry my friend you are having these issues and I mean that. Have you thought of a trip to your local Apple store and the genius bar if you have one in your area to get to the bottom of this?

Here's my (conspiracy) theory: Apple pushed 6.1.2 out with a bug that gradually degrades battery life, then waited until the Evasi0n team confirmed it could be broken, then seeded 6.1.3 beta with the j/b fix in it. We all rushed to upgrade to 6.1.2 and re-jailbreak, and now we'll be forced to choose between the j/b and battery life. The final release of 6.1.3 will fix the battery bug. No issue for the stock folks to upgrade, but jailbreakers will be caught between a rock and a hard place.

Now removing my tinfoil hat....

I am not noticing any difference in battery life. Same as it's been for a long while.

Strange thing for me, my battery life since getting my iPhone 5 has been fairly average. Since jailbreaking and getting all my tweaks sorted so there are no clashes or resprings into safemode my iPhone 5 battery life has been amazing. Yesterday I got 12 hours of full on use, facebook, tweets, email, surfing, some music and a few games on a single charge with still 21% left. Don't know if its something to do with the jb but I'm not complaining.

Welcome to the club, it's a huge problem, Apple apparently doesn't care, or they aren't aware somehow since the issue continues to be ignored by the tech blog/website world..

Oh okay, Blink. I'm sorry about your battery woes, my friend, and I wish I could pinpoint an exact reason, but I can't. You're an experienced & respected member so I know you've done all there is to be done to rectify the problem so go ahead and take that trip to the Apple Store anyway. You may find it beneficial...;)...Enjoy the rest of your day, my friend.

Blink.... I suppose my mention about going to the Apple store and talk to the Genius Bar employees meets with the same advice from my friend 'D so that is what I would try. Stranger things have happened from am Apple store buddy.;)

I also agree you are a well respected long standing member here and know what to try. It never hurts when you are at wits end to go to the next level. Have a great day.
