IOS 6.1.4 issues

I have upgraded to OS 6.1.4 and have not had any issues with battery life.  I do make sure that at least twice a day that I double click the home button and fully close the apps that I have opened.  Some apps will continue to run in the background and drain the battery rather quickly.

 

If I am running LTE full time, it will drain the battery quickly as well, probably three times faster than WiFi or 3G.

Just wondering if anyone is having problems since the update. My is dying twice as fast as it was before, battery life is horrible now. Anyone having this or any other issues.

I haven't had any issues with 6.1.4; however I had major battery issues with 6.1.3 because of a bug with my MS Exchange account through work. Any time I would accept a calendar invite it would continuously loop through as accepted and burn right through my battery (there have even been a couple of articles stating that the MS servers were getting bogged down due to this bug as well). Not sure if you have an exchange account or not, but the solution for me was to delete the account (meaning everything, contacts, calendar, email, reminders, etc), wait for about 30 minutes then reinstall the account. Because everything is backed up on the Exchange server you don't lose any of you data (contacts, etc). However I don't seem to have this issue with 6.1.4, so this may not be all that helpful.

Jesus is LTE that power hungry on the iPhone?

It is for me.  When in the office or home, I stay on WiFi.  Now it does depend if I am using data on the phone with LTE but it does drain it fairly fast.

No, NO, NO! Please stop perpetuating this cargo-cult nonsense! iOS automatically manages apps. It forces them to shutdown after ten minutes in the background. If there is plenty of RAM, it will leave them in memory in suspended-animation so switching back is instant, but they aren't running and can't waste battery life. If another app needs the RAM, it dumps them automatically. Only apps currently playing audio can run continuously past the 10 minute mark.

 

The app drawer is just a list of apps used recently. The apps may be running, may be suspended, or may already be completely shutdown and unloaded. There is no indicator of the status because you aren't meant to manually manage them. Go ahead - restart your iPhone and you will see the app drawer is still populated on a freshly booted OS with no apps running.

 

The only thing the app drawer has to do with running apps is if you tap the X, and the app just so happens to be running, iOS will ask the app to close. That's it.

 

iOS also automatically kills apps that stop responding for a certain period of time.

 

 

I see now why Apple tends not to provide lots of dials and knobs to fuss with. People make up nonsense about what they do, then perpetuate cargo-cult actions like an information virus, causing thousands (millions?) of people to waste time in their day doing stuff like clearing the app drawer.

No. Something else is causing this, even if it somehow is perceived to be LTE. Lower latency and larger bandwidth of LTE, especially when compared with the saturated 3G of sprint, means your radio will spend far less time actively transmitting.

No issues so far for me. Currently at 22% and 6 hours 14 minutes of usage 12+ hours of standby. Used WiFi briefly and have been on LTE the rest of the time. Alot better then the first time I had an iPhone 5 (just got this one). Back in September when Sprint's network was still in shambles it was murdering the battery life.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
