iPhone 4S draining fast in standby

Hi

Over the last few days I've noticed that when in 3G my iPhone 4S (black, 64GB) drains about 10% an hour on standby. The usage figures also seem to go up on their own. I've disabled location services and iCloud, but I don't know what else to do from here.

Any ideas?

Thanks

If you are having email pushed to the phone, that could be a significant consumer of power. If so, you might want to try disabling "Push" and instead "Fetch" your email on a more conservative schedule, or even set it to "manually".

Cheers, but I've already done that - I think it might be the Facebook app doing it though. Will have to try it tomorrow when at college.

Have you rebooted the phone? Shut it down and boot it up. I have found that on my old dumb phone that would cure mysterious battery usage.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Tried that many times - but eventually worked out that it was the Facebook app. Not only was it using 1.5GB of my space, closing it from multitasking seemed to fix it.
