Is there a way to revert back to a previous software build.

    My ipad2 updated software yesterday to build 6.1.2 and as a result, my battery life has begun to deplete at a much quicker rate than when it was on 6.1.1. One of the highlights of 6.1.2 was to address batteries, which began to drain at a quicker rate than they were designed to drain. I wasn't having a problem with my battery draining quicker that the designed 10hrs until the most recent update of 6.1.2. My question, is there a way to revert back to a prior build, such as 6.1.1?

    Unfortunately, no, there is no way to downgrade to a prior iOS once Apple has stopped authorizing it. You might have a chance of going to iOS 6.1, but if Apple is still signing it - it won't be long before it is closed. But, anything before that? No can use.

    So, you could try it. No guarantees...

    Marilyn thanks for the quick response. Can you explain to me how I might accomplish getting back to 6.1.1

    Oh, drat - I am so sorry! In my research to answer your question - I see that Apple has closed the window to downgrade to iOS 6.1. And, iOS 6.1.1 was only for the iPhone 4S.

    So, I'm afraid you will have to stay at iOS 6.1.2. Sorry.
