Are You Having Battery Life Issues After iOS 6.0.2?

Yesterday Apple released iOS 6.0.2 for iPhone 5 and iPad mini which is supposed to fix lingering WiFi issues in both devices, but has this update caused battery life to plummet as well?

This just perking up from TidBITS:

I can’t state categorically that the just-released iOS 6.0.2 for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini will hurt battery life, since evidence is still anecdotal and battery life testing requires time. And yet, while there are not so many reports to indicate that the problem is universal, or even necessarily widespread, at least three people on the TidBITS staff noticed unusual battery drains over the last 24 hours, and a quick sanity check on Twitter revealed a number of others who have also seen surprisingly low battery levels since updating to iOS 6.0.2.

The post reports one user’s experience of his iPhone 5 draining from 97% to 85% while just sitting idle in a bag while in the car. The circumstantial evidence points to something with over zealous WiFi trying to scan and connect. I haven’t noticed any significant issues, however I haven’t been paying that much attention to battery life after updating my devices. The question goes to you:

Since updating to iOS 6.0.2 have you noticed a change in your device’s battery life?

Let us know in the comments.
