Apple's recent iOS 6.0.2 release has major issue - sucking down more battery than usual

Yet another iFail, iOS 6.0.2 reportedly features battery draining issues for some users

Apple only pushed out iOS 6.0.2 a few days ago, but it looks like there are already people reporting issues with the latest iteration of the "world's most advanced mobile operating system".

TidBIT, and others, are reporting that iPhone 5 and iPad mini users on the Apple discussion forums are complaining that the latest iOS release is draining battery life much faster than before. It has been reported that the battery drain issues could be in relation to the devices working harder to scan for Wi-Fi access points, which is what the release of iOS 6.0.2 was meant to fix: Wi-Fi connection problems.


This isn't the first time an update has been released and affected battery life, but it sure would be annoying for a company to claim it's the "world's most advanced mobile operating system", and they still, to this day, experience these issues.
