    Anyone notice a loss of battery life? Reports are of reduced battery life.

    It's only available for iPad mini and iPHone 5. if you have either, then Settings, General, Software Update.

    I was just about to say that my iPhone 5 was no different but just noticed quite a bit more battery drain than is normal.

    I haven't noticed my battery draining as what everybody is saying, but I'll certainly watch the next time I charge it. I charged it last night and have gone onto the forum, played some online games, Facebook and I am at 44% right now.

    Not noticed any battery drain increase on the 5 or mini, what I have noticed is my WiFi stays connected now on both devices whereas before it was a PITA. Happy!

    Well, today my battery appears to be fine......in fact it is still at 100% after two hours so yesterday must have been some form of usage glitch.
