    My iPad battery seems to drain down a lot faster since the upgrade, anyone else experiencing this?

    The iPhone seems about the same though.

    How long does it take yours to drain? Do you know how long it took to drain on iOS 5?

    If you do, please post the times

    I haven't timed it in hours but prior to the upgrade I used to get 4 to 5 days, now I just got 3 with the same amount of daily usage

    Really? Hmmm..

    It may have something to do with the Facebook syncing. Do you have a Facebook and a twitter account set up?
    Are you sure you haven't activated some new settings after the update?

    I don't have a twitter account at all and have never used Facebook on the iPad. Both are time wasters in my humble opinion.

    I don't believe I have anything more activated now than before.

    I will let this charge run right down and try to keep a record of usage after the recharge.

    Ok, that would be good.

    What are the specifications of your ipad? 1,2,3? Wifi or wifi + 3G, ect

    Check all your settings. Sometimes a new iOS will change a few settings or add new ones that operate unless you turn them off.

    Kev,
    I probably only use it for no more than 2 hours a day, mainly for emails, weather, news, a couple of forums and Words withFriends.

    Ok, so from previous posts, i can see you don't use it very much.

    Since installing ios 6, what apps have you installed?

    Check your screen brightness. Setting it to high will drain the battery faster than a lower setting.

    Brightness is on auto and always has been.

    On the plus I charged it (and took it off the charger) last night prior to going to bed and have probably used it for 15 minutes this morning and it is still showing 100%?????

    I haven't changed a thing since the update and I haven't kept specific stats, but mine seems to run down faster than before iOS 6. I have a few friends that have offered the same observation. Perhaps someone will provide some hard facts on this issue.
