Anyone Seeing Rapid Battery Decline Recently?
CanMan

We have one iPhone 4 and two iPhone 4S models in the house.  All three are seeing very rapid decline in battery during the day.  This started within the past week.  No changes in usage by us and we have closed open apps, etc. 

Thanks for any input.

We have 2  Iphone 4's and 1 Iphone 4S and my son who has the 4S is complaining of rapid battery decline. Just within the past week. I have noticed some, but not as much as his on my 4.

Have you updated the devices to the latest version of iOS? If so one of the fixes that was implemented was that the devices poll wifi signals much more frequently to maintain a connection. This fixes an issue that iPhone 5's had with dropped wifi connections. The downside of this is increased battery usage. Try turning off the wifi when you don't need it and see if that makes a difference.

Try restoring the phones to factory using the restore feature in iTunes. Restoring iOS devices can fix quite a few issues and is always worth a try. But before you do that backup the devices using either iTunes or iCloud.
