    I have started doing that too, turning off the 3G. I think this weekend I'll try letting run completely down and see what happens.

    would really like to know if anyone else is not seeing improvements on the battery life? I feel the battery life is still being drained by something... Has anyone noticed their 3G signal strength improving on iPhone and iPad since the update. Getting more bars on my iPhone 4.

    I haven't noticed any improvement on battery life. Mine is still draining.

    My ipad is just wifi. I stopped using it about 11PM on Wed. night with 56% battery, and locked it. Put it on the shelf, and got it out again last night around 6PM and it was down to 30%. There was nothing running, and I even have location services and everything turned off for nearly everything. I played some games, checked email, and browsed the web last night, and locked it again around 11PM with 17% battery left. I wonder if it will be dead tonight when I get home.

    I certainly hope Apple can fix this, and fast. Can I revert to 5.0?

    You cannot "downgrade" to iOS 5.0.

    For folks experiencing battery issues you might try resetting your iPad (third step below). That has resolved this for a number of folks.

    Quit Apps: To quit an app double press the Home button and the Multitasking Tray will appear at the bottom of the screen revealing all of the open apps. Tap and hold any app icon until all of the icons start jiggling. A red circle with a "-" (minus sign) will appear in the upper left-hand corner of each icon. Tap the red circle and the app will close.

    Restart the iPad: Press and hold down the Sleep/wake switch on the top edge of the iPad for few seconds until the red slider appears, slide this across to shut the iPad down. Restart the iPad by pressing the Sleep/wake switch until the Apple logo appears.

    Reset the iPad: You can do this by pressing the Home button and the Sleep/wake switch on the top the iPad's case and holding them down together for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. The iPad should then reset itself. The boot up process takes a few minutes and then the iPad should be responsive again. More here:

    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting

    FWIW my iPad's battery life has been normal after every upgrade/update (on iOS 5.0.1 now).

    Also note that screen brightness has the biggest impact on battery life. Reducing screen brightness from 100% to 50% or 60% can increase longevity markedly. In general unless you're outside that level should still be quite good for normal use.

    Thanks I will try it. I have my screen brightness set at 50% too. As you mentioned that is plenty bright.
