BGR has written about a new iOS 6 issue that was brought to light by MacObserver. According to the story, which is based on a massive string of messages on Apple’s support forums, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S users are complaining that since updating to iOS 6, their battery life has fallen dramatically, from 100% fully charged to less than 50% in a matter of hours when on standby even. Apparently some of the posters on the thread have suggested that the issue could be caused by Maps and Passbook, with the suggestion that turning off location services could halt the massive battery drain. BGR itself says that it reviewed iOS 6 on an iPhone 4 and didn’t notice any battery drain issues, but clearly lots of other people have if the support forum posts are anything to go by. As BGR says, battery problems tend to occur with the launch of a new iOS, and are usually fixed by the first update.
