Have you bought an iPhone 5 or upgraded your iPhone 4 or 4S or iPad to iOS 6? Many users have experienced problems with the new operating system version. We went through Apple's community discussions forum looking for common problems and solutions that users have found. Here are some of the most common having to do with Wi-Fi failures, missing music, failure to connect to iTunes, high cellular bills and, of course, the infamous Apple Maps.
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.
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!
...you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.
