Is it my imagination? Answered

Is this my imagination, or is iOS6 more power-hungry than 5 was?

I'm not sure, but there seems to be a constant charging of iPods chez Kite these days.


May I suggest A portable backup battery?

such as a mophie or a richard solo?

either that or a usb wall or usb car adapter.

But you do raise a good point, Its rare to see my battery full

My cousin owns galaxy s 3
He is phone modder.
He makes and install custom roms
He ones tols me that one of his rom is consuming a lot of battery because it runs unnecessary apps randomly in background due to bug,also his network remained bad.and also new jellybean rom is giving almost the same effect.
You should wait to see the bugs in new roms and os(s) before installing them,now you could only wait for ios6.0.01 or something newer

Yep, I had to turn pretty much everything off and turn the brightness down super low to keep my 3gs running all day!

Even browsing reddit can kill it. :P

Maybe the latter is just your 3gs trying desperately to protect your intelligence? :->

Psssssh. I learn lots of things:

1. People find cute animals ALL OVER
2. Atheists are jerks
3. Christians are jerks
4. Putting text over a photo is hilarious
5. nopenopenopeNOPE

I don't think it's your imagination: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=iOS%206%20battery%20drain

Yes, it seems that we mere IPod users are suffering the same as the iPhone users.

Bit of a PITA.

(Eyes Galaxy Note with growing interest.)
