This is the latest report according to an american news information site mashable.com that two weeks after the release of iPhone 4S many customers contacted with iPhone’s batter problem.
And writer of Mashable, Chris Taylor also wrote that The crowdsourced approach came to light courtesy of The Guardian, which found a user in the UK who had been contacted by Apple after he wrote about his battery life problems online. “I then got a call from a senior engineer who said he had read my post and was ‘reaching out’ to users for data,” the user said. He had been experiencing a 10% drop in battery life every hour.
The Apple engineer then “admitted this was an issue (and that they aren’t close to finding a fix!) and asked lots of questions about my usage and then asked if he could install the file below and that he would call back the day after to retrieve the info.”
Apple has sent mixed messages about the iPhone 4S battery life since its launch. The company’s data sheet notes that the phone’s standby time is 200 hours, which is lower than previous models — but Apple also says the 4S has a longer battery life when it comes to 3G talk time.
Although the battery issue hasn’t quite reached Antennagate levels, it is lighting up the Apple message boards.One user post on “iPhone 4S battery life” has received 1,300 replies and nearly 100,000 views since Oct. 15.
No consensus has been reached on what is causing the drainage. Some 4S owners have been able to fix it by doing a clean restore of their phone from iTunes. Others point the finger at Contacts, especially those imported from MobileMe, iCloud or Google contacts, and have found success by reinstalling them.
