A possible fix for the iPhone 4s battery issue
Authored by: aca on Nov 03, '11 07:56:56AM

Not just iPhone 4Só my iPad1 had incredibly terrible battery life after the iOS5 update, and I soon discovered that with automatic time zone setting enabled, it had location services running constantly, 24/7. Switching it off restored the battery life to its previous reasonably good length. Took it in to a Genius bar the next day, and they saw that it wasn't right, but didn't have any suggestions.

It must have something to do with a preference of some sort, possibly inherited from iOS4(?), because I have *not* had this problem with my 4S (which came with iOS5 installed, and the settings were restored from an older iPhone running 3.1.3). At any rate, it sounds like they've figured it out...
