    Anyone else getting bad battery life? I can't quite put my finger on why... I love maximum brightness, location services, Siri, and wifi on all day.. Any other suggestions? ....


    Seriously though... How can anyone complain about battery life? Yes I keep location on Siri on wifi on with max brightness...

    Nothing wrong with that! Use it how you like it (but if you do start playing some intensive games or doing gps, you might get a battery hit -- might be good to know for the future).

    I have wifi model so no GPS for me. but yeah when I play graphic intensive games I don't get good battery life. but that's expected. I just don't see how people can honestly complain about battery life...

    There is too much difference in iPAd 1 and Ipad 4 battery life. iPad 1 has a great battery life.

    Try turning off GPS services, mobile data and Bluetooth when you're not using them.

    When you open an app always remember to close it when your done. Im able to use my iPad for ten hours with max brightness and wifi. Also, make sure bluetooth is off.

    What's that saying again? You can never be too rich, too thin or have too much battery life? Lol.
