How to fix battery life issues with iOS 6 or iPhone 5
Georgia, Senior Editor at iMore, gives some tips on “How to fix battery life issues with iOS 6 or iPhone 5“, really nice and helpful tips…
So, is it true that iOS 6 causing battery drain?
There is a rumor that iOS 6 is not suitable for the old version of iPhone device. Eric Zeman writes in his article, entitled “iOS 6 Drains Older iPhone Batteries Faster”:
I’ve been testing the iPhone 5 for 10 days now. The iPhone 5 ships with iOS 6 installed. I’ve found that the battery life continues to be very good, given all that the device offers. Keep in mind, it has larger display, a faster processor, and a more power-hungry LTE 4G radio on board.
and then he writes:
But iOS 6 isn’t as friendly to the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 when it comes to battery life. I’ve installed iOS 6 on both the iPhone 4S and 4, and, have noticed, along with other users, that battery life has taken a pretty big hit on these older iPhones.
I think Eric Zeman is right! iOS 6 just drains iPhone 4 and 4s batteries but not iPhone 5. Maybe you should sell your old iPhone 4 or 4s, and replace it with the new iPhone 5 🙂
