An anecdotal report suggests iOS 6.0.2 for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini appears to be affecting battery life. The update, which aimed to fix a Wi-Fi bug, is allegedly causing unusually fast battery drain on the updated devices for some users. As with prior iOS-related battery issues, the problem does not appear to affect all users; however, a Twitter search for “iOS 6.0.2 battery” reveals a fair number of tweets about decreased battery life related to the update. It’s been noted that Apple has removed the support note for the update, which may signal another patch to address the latest problem. [via Tidbits, ZDNet]
