i have iphone 5, updated to 6.1.3. I dont have huge battery drain like others, but yeh battery life decreased. Furthermore, no problems with wifi connection, just having some problems with 3G but maybe it is fault of my carrier

surely Apple is aware of the problem and hopefully iOS 6.1.4 will be sent out soon to repair the problem. yes sure after each update performed by apple the problems are growing instead of decreasing

At this stage its like a degenerate disease,iOS updates are being pushed through almost by the week now to cure new faults and errors,but each cure is an ifan placebo as in fact the iOS as a whole is getting worse and more buggy with each release

IOS 6.1.4 will resolve the battery drain issue,but will create some other problems for which IOS 6.1.5 will give a resolution and it goes On and ON

The fix involving letting your battery go completely dead is insane, who can afford to give up their phone for that amount of time? Is that a one time deal or do you have to repeat the process periodically?

Well, you could also manually kill apps that aren't important. Draining the battery is a bit extreme, IMO. Plus, there is no guarantee that it will work.

My battery seems to drain faster through Spotify and heavy streaming than normal. However, we are all waiting for iOS7. So maybe these useless updates will stop.

Apple has gotten really good at screwing up their phones. I still wonder why someone would buy an iPhone 4S for $99 on contract when they could get a newer and better phone for the same price (RAZR HD, SIII)

Oh ya they are so bad for releasing fixes to what people complain about... I dont think any other phone company pushes out fixes faster than apple does. and people buy the 4s because they want an iphone but don't want to spend extra for the 5. Not that hard to understand.

But why get an iPhone to begin with? Plus android updates don't damage the devices. The last time I remember hearing a complaint about an update on the Nexus was the calendar bug.

I beg to differ. The ICS update for the Epic 4G Touch has caused my phone to shut itself off constantly. The only way to get it to turn back on is to remove the battery and restart. The phone is still on and burning battery while it is "off", it just won't turn the screen on, and in the battery meter, it showed that the battery died (which it didn't). I've fine through 3 replacements, all with the same problems. I'm hoping JB comes soon to fix it...

I'm talking about the Nexus 4 not a device limited by a custom skin or carrier. It's the pure Google experience. What carriers and manufacturers choose to do to their phones isn't Google's fault.

Lol well im just going to throw this out there for you to think about. Maybe it should be QUALITY over quantity? with over 100 billion in savings you would think they could afford to invest in QUALITY.
