iPhone 4S battery problems? Try this fix

As previously reported, many users of the iPhone 4S have been reporting poor battery life. Now Oliver Haslam at iDownloadBlog has come up with a fix.

It seems the problem lies with the “Setting Time Zone” option causing the location services to run constantly, sucking the battery dry very quickly. Since turning this option off, Oliver has seen his battery life almost double.

The fix has had successful results on the iPhone 4 and 3GS as well, suggesting it’s to do with iOS5 rather than the handset itself.
