Apple iOS Battery

One major issue of iOS 5 (Apple’s latest mobile operating system) since the iOS 5 public release last October 12th is the rapid draining of battery life of iOS 5 powered Apple devices. A few weeks after its debut, a number of iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch users who opted to upgrade their devices to the latest iOS started to notice and complain about the faster draining of their device’s battery.

After some observations, one iPhone 4S user who also experienced the same battery problem suggested a temporary fix to improve the battery life. He concluded that one causing the battery problem is the iOS setting that automatically update its timezone. The feature’s constant pinging to various location servers to update the device’s timezone might be the one causing the fast battery drainage.
