If you have noticed a decrease in your battery life on your iOS device since upgrading to the latest Apple release of iOS 4.3. It could be due to the Ping service running in the background on the device. User tests have recently shown that by disabling the Ping feature on your Apple device, you can receive a noticeable increase in battery life on your device.
Once disabled your battery should then return to a life close to its limits before the iOS 4.3 was installed, allowing you to carry on with your daily business, without having to worry about the next charging point.
Its not the first time that an update from Apple has affected the battery live of its devices, but luckily this one is easily fixed. If you need to monitor your battery life in detail the percentage indicator is a good way to do this and can be enabled in the Settings -> General -> Usage -> Battery Percentage -> ON.Filed Under: Apple, Apple iPad, Apple iPhone
