How To Maximize Battery Life Of iPhone 4S

The iPhone 4S is the hot phone on the market, in more ways than one. There are widespread reports of disappointing battery life and of other hardware issues, such as excessively warm devices.

The iPhone 4S is a lightning rod for both pundits and users. Pundits debate its worth, while users debate whether to move to it. One of the topics up for debate is battery life, compared to both other iPhones and other smartphones. Apple added to the battery life debate by releasing a subset of the numbers that it usually provides, and by having a few surprises in the numbers that it did provide. Yesterday, Apple admitted to AllThingsD there was indeed a battery life problem, starting the ball rolling for a future software update.

Just what is considered good--and bad-- battery life for the iPhone 4S? And can you do anything to improve it while waiting for an Apple fix?

There seems to be a lot of confusion, so I'm going to try to sort out the information from the misinformation, and provide a few useful tips for improving battery life.
