While Apple did not mention anything about iOS 6.1 improving battery life in the release notes, we’ve seen a few scattered reports which suggest that Apple may have fixed some of the bugs that was affecting battery life.
I have personally not seen any major improvements, but one of our readers commented that he was seeing improved battery life on his iPhone 4 after upgrading to iOS 6.1.
great battery improvement …. 100% to 99% for 4 hours in standby with wifi enabled … really great performance than ios 6.0.1 …..
Folks at EVDOinfo are also claiming that they’re seeing improved battery life after upgrading to iOS 6.1.
With an iPhone 5 running iOS 6.0.2, the above screenshot would show battery life around 93 – 94%. After installing iOS 6.1, the battery indicator is still at 100%. In fact, this screen show was take 15 minutes ago and the iPhone 5 still shows 100%. This is insane battery life.
