The iOS 6.0.2 update released earlier this week may have cured some people’s Wi-Fi woes, but others now claim it’s reducing their battery life too. First reported by TidBITS’ Adam Engst and supported by a number of posters in Apple’s Support Communities, some (but seemingly not all) iPhone users have begun seeing dramatically reduced battery life on their iPhones after performing the update. Apple says iOS 6.0.2 “fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi.” iPhone 5 users previously complained their devices weren’t staying connected to Wi-Fi, therefore forcing their phones to fall back to cellular data networks and use inappropriate amounts of data. Although Apple didn’t specify whether iOS 6.0.2 fixes that particular bug, it’s widely speculated this was indeed its purpose.
