Many people are complaining that their iPhone batteries are draining too fast after they installed iOS 6. Check out this thread in the Apple Support Communities for a long discussion on the causes and the remedies. The most common complaint is that after a full night of charging the battery to 100%, it drops to 75% or so within an hour with little or no usage. Although this is perceived to be a common issue, it’s been noted that there are similar complaints each time a software update has been issued by Apple.
No matter the cause, it’s extremely frustrating to have an iPhone battery that dies quickly after a full charge. One remedy is to calibrate your iPhone’s battery. This should only be done after you’ve tried the following: resetting your network settings; turning off Bluetooth when not in use; disabling notifications, iCloud, location services, and usage reports. These settings are easy to adjust and should help retain your iPhone’s battery life.
If the above steps don’t work, and your’e still finding that you’re having major issues with your iPhone’s battery, you should try calibrating the battery. The process is extremely simple. All you need to do is drain your entire battery once and then charge it to full. Many people have found that their battery gauge tends to be false until they calibrate their iPhone’s battery. This process is in line with Apple’s battery life tips that they suggest that you calibrate your iPhone’s battery at least once per month:
For proper maintenance of a lithium-based battery, it’s important to keep the electrons in it moving occasionally. Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).
We hope that the above instructions are useful and that your iPhone’s battery lasts a bit longer. If you find that your’e still having issues after adjusting your settings and calibrating the battery, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
