    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.
