The iPhone 4S battery runs down very quickly.   Does anyone else have this problem?

The battery in my new iPhone 4s runs down very quickly.  Does anyone else have this problem?

Location services is NOT running all the time, only when the arrow appears in the message bar. It is not a major consumer of power unless you are actively using it (such as using the Maps app), and even then it is a minor factor in battery life; loading maps is the big user of power in the Maps app. And turning off Location Services defeats Find my iPhone.
There are only 2 heavy battery consumers, cellular data and interactive games. Everything else (bluetooth, location services, WiFi, etc) are tiny in comparison to these and will not make a significant difference in battery life.

    I continue to get an error 37 message when trying to restore my iphone 3GS which crashed after trying to upload the last update. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Did you manage to fix the issue?
    I have exactly the same issue as described above : I installed the update 5.1.1 on my iphone 3GS and since then, I can not turn it on anymore. In Itunes, I get an error 37 when I am doing a restauration and it stops.
    This error has nothing to do with firewall : I tried to restore the phone on several computers, including in an Apple reseller and it did not work anywhere.
    I spent several hours on phone with the hotline from Apple which arrived to the conclusion that it is a hardware issue, but the phone was working perfectly fine until I installed this update!

  • TS1398 My new IPad mini has poor wifi reception. Goes in and out.  My IPod, IPhone, Ipad1 and Ipad2 work finer. I think it has wifi antenna issues.  Does anyone else have this problem?

    My new IPad mini has poor wifi reception. It goes in and out.  My IPod, Iphone4, Ipad1 and Ipad2 work fine. What can I do?  Does anyone else have this problem?

    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
    How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery
    http://www.macblend.com/how-to-calibrate-your-mac-iphone-or-ipad-battery/
    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.

    In rare instances when using the Camera Connection Kit, you may notice that iPad does not charge after using the Camera Connection Kit. Disconnecting and reconnecting the iPad from the charger will resolve this issue.

  • Ipad2 doesn't sync with my kindle. When I open the kindle app I have to search for the correct page. Does anyone else have this problem?

    When I open the kindle app on iPad 2 I have to search for the correct page. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Well, I did a search on apple.com and found this:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-news/2010/04/the-hidden-itunes-visualizer-con trols.html
    "The Visualizer -- graphics that swoop and pulse with the music -- has been part of iTunes' DNA from the beginning. And because its creators wanted to interact with the graphics in real time as well as watch them, Visualizer includes some single keystroke commands that change what you see while it runs. But these commands are hidden by default lest they obstruct the graphics.
    Use the Show/Hide Visualizer command in the View menu to turn Visualizer on and off, and use the Visualizer menu to select among the choices. If the choice you're using has hidden commands you can see them for a brief time by typing ? while a song is playing and Visualizer is visible. The keystrokes will work regardless of whether the help menu is showing, so if you memorize them it's possible to add Virtuoso Visualizer Player to your list of accomplishments. (For the Visualizer choice called Jelly, available only in iTunes for Mac, try holding the keys down, especially the number keys, for maximum effect.")
    Not that you care. >.<

    Since I installed the update for Mindjolt games, it will not let me in.  Does anyone else have this problem?

    Try resetting the iPad. Simultaneously hold down the Home and the On buttons until the iPad shuts off. Ignore the off slider if it should appear. This should take only about ten seconds or so. Once shut down is compete, turn the iPad back on.

  • I purchase songs from Itunes and as soon as I sync my phone, the song gets deleted. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I purchase songs from Itunes and as soon as I sync my phone, the song gets deleted. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I have random songs that a have paid for but they just disappear, or cannot be downloaded and so on. Sometimes they are indexed wrongly, and can't be found because of that, no work around because also the search function of itunes has gotten totally unusable. Not much fun to be an apple user anymore. I once used to be a very loyal user. My first apple was a Macintosh SE and an image writer II.

  • Ebooks,  half the books I have bought have complete sections or chapters missing.  Does anyone else have this problem or am I doing something wrong in the downloading of them

    Half the ebooks I have bought from iTunes have large sections or complete chapters missing from them which is beginning to seriously irritate.  Does anyone else have this problem or it is something to do with the downloading. In which case does anyone have an answer?

    You should be able to delete and redownload them via the bookshelf in the iBooks app : tap the Edit button top right of the shelf, select and delete the books, then go into the Store via the button top left of the bookshelf, and in the Purchased tab (bottom right of the store) find and re-download the books.
    If they re-download in the same state then try the 'report a problem' link from your purchase history : log into your account on your computer's iTunes via Store > View My Account and you should then see a Purchase History section with a 'see all' link to the right of it ; click on that and you should see a list of your purchases ; find those books and use the 'Report a Problem' link.
