    My iPad's still on 3.2(I held back from 4.2 because changing the lock button to a mute button would have driven me nuts- slightly silly, but there you go), and I've been wanting to update to 4.3 since it came out, but I haven't done so because I've heard rumors that it really screwed up battery life. Can anyone tell me whether the update ruins battery life? Or if the rumors I've heard are exaggerated?

    There have been reports that 4.3 took a hit on battery life, but 4.3.1 (current version) fixes that problem. I haven't noticed any differences though. Battery life is fine in my opinion.

    I have noticed by battery life almost draining before my eyes.
    Started with earlier 3.2
    Upgraded to 4.3
    Now I loose average of 5% while sleeping
    Reading a book for half hour uses about 20%
    I turn all apps off before I put it to sleep.
    Will the 4.3.1 help
    Very nervous!
    Last upgrade caused sooooo many other loading issues,which took me 2 weeks to sort out finally.
    Please guru's
    Need a plan of attack.
    Traveling os next week for 4 months so will not be accessing my computer and iTunes .
    Need to do all before I go,with no issues lingering.
    Please advise?....

    I'm not sure why you would be having loading issues. What were the issues?

    And I think you should update to 4.3.1. Like I said, there have been reports of improved battery life with the newest update. I didn't notice a difference, but then again I don't really pay attention.

    Had to fully reload iPad forum, twitter,Facebook,book library log ins etc.
    After the upgrade to 4.3 all refused to open
    Didn't recognize my details passwords etc
    Now all reloaded,so hence my nervousness to upgrade to 4.3.1
    But if it will return my "normal"battery life I will do it.
    Please advise.

    It should improve the battery life. But, you may have the same problem. I've never had that problem though, so I wouldn't know how to fix it.

    well I am not going to download it then, no point unless it makes phone stop lagging so bad, 4.3 is making it lag something bad.
