Top iOS6 Problems And How To Fix Them

Battery Life More Like Battery Death
I upgraded yesterday to iOS6, wrote Ralf99. I left my phone charged 100%. After 4 hours on standby it was down to 3%. I went to sleep with at least 90% battery life and woke up it was down to 66%. Was never like that before. Is there any way I can revert to IOS 5.1.1?
Actually there isn't a way to downgrade to iOS 5.1.1 unless you saved your SH blobs before you upgraded. Those are unique software identifiers that associate the OS with the hardware.
As far as battery life, StrAuchXl wrote:
I found out, that there is in the settings a point called advertising, if you switch this off the battery is nearly back at the point you were used to when it was running with iOS5.
More specifically: Deactivate the feature "Limit Ad Tracking" in Settings->General->About->Advertising->Limit Ad Tracking=OFF.
iMaps is Beautiful but iNaccurate
I have upgraded my 4S to iOS6, and let's forget about all the other errors I get with my apps. But the fact that my map doesn't open any locations & can't find me any directions is the most annoying one! It even can't find the directions from my house to the next street!
