It seems I can barely make it through the day now without having to recharge, and that's with the phone just on standby (i.e. little activity or use). It could have started with 6.1.1, but I doubt it. The fact that it is so noticeable now and I'm actually writing MacInTouch means something is not right and it seems related to 6.1.2 and at the very least the iPhone 4S. I remember this happening to me with the 3GS and iOS 4. History repeats. Anyone else having similar experiences out there with this configuration?" MacInTouch 11:57 AM
