Tablet Crunch also noted iPhone 5 owners have experienced the same.
As Latinos Post reported, according to battery tests, the battery life is not the same as Apple suggested during the Sept. 12 keynote speech.
Latinos Post has organized some tips being passed around the web and let us know in the comments section your recommendations or if the follow have worked for you.
From Tablet Crunch:
Disable location awareness on your apps: "The first fix is to disable all of the apps that have the location aware feature enabled on your iPhone or iPad. As you'll see, with iOS 6 you now have a lot of apps that are processing your location."
1) Tap on "Settings" on your screen
2) Tap on "Privacy"
3) Tap on "Location Services"
"Now look through that list and turn off all of the apps that have location enabled that you either a) don't use the apps that much, or b) there's no real need to have location enabled."
Turn Off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth When Not Using It: "While it can be convenient to leave these on, and Wi-Fi assists in location detection, they're also both massive idle battery drains because they're constantly scanning in the background. Disable both of these features in Settings when not using them. Bluetooth settings are no longer hidden under submenus iOS 6, making it easier to manage."
Notifications Limit: Too much notifications leads to your screen lighting up every time, which uses a good chunk of your battery life in the long run.
"While there is no "magic button" for disabling all notifications, changing your email settings can help. Go to: Settings > Mail, Contacts, and Calendars > Fetch New Data. Disable push e-mail and set "Fetch" to manual. You'll have to check your e-mail yourself, but this gives you a little more control over how your phone spends the precious, precious battery power."
From Latinos Post:
CARAT App: The CARAT app sends a report to you on which apps and features you don't use and how much in battery life you'll save once those get disabled.
According to a study by Opower, the iPhone 5 is likely to make owners spend $0.41 cents per year on their electricity bill when charged daily throughout the year, a three cent increase compared to the iPhone 4.
