‘Setting Time Zone’ could be the culprit for the iPhone 4S’s battery troubles
>By James Lenhart
Earlier we reported that many people are complaining about the iPhone 4S’s poor battery life. As a result of the complaints, Apple engineers began contacting customers to diagnose the problem, according to The Guardian. It now looks to be a software problem but pinpointing the issue is not an easy task.
Many people are saying that turning off certain locations services will help with the battery drain, but disabling a feature called Setting Time Zone under Location Services > System Services should help you the most, according to Oliver Haslam. If you notice that your services have a purple arrow next to them, it means they are being accessed right now. It’s good to eliminate what you don’t need until Apple comes out with a fix.
One thing is for certain — we need phones with better battery life. Ideally it would be nice to have something that lasted 48 hours under moderate use.
