When are they going to fix the iOS 6 and iPhone 4S problem? What I call the 'Hand Warmer' feature has plagued my phone since the day iOS 6 was released. The phone randomly runs some unknown process at maximum speed. This makes the phone very warm and can drain a full battery to nothing in about an hour. Apple refuses to allow downgrading to iOS 5. They've already sent me one new phone in hopes of fixing the problem, but the new phone is loaded with iOS 6 which has the same problem.

This problem is on the Apple Discussion Boards, but to answer your question; this happens whether I have any apps running or not. I have witnessed my phone go from 100% battery charge to 20% in less then an hour while it was doing nothing but sitting on my desk with no apps running.

Here is a sample from the Apple discussion boards, there are many others.

so are you talking about 6.1 or 6.0.1?

Apologies, it's 6.0.1

When I looked at the update screen on the phone, it had me download an app that seems to allow me to then update to 6.0.1. So it is still doable over the air. There is just a weird work around.

when did we go from 6.0.1 released today to 6.1 that we (Dev's) just got?

This is 6.0.1 not 6.1.

I did see a note earlier today that 6.1 had been seeded to developers, so that might be the confusion. My updated iPhone 4S says 6.0.1 and that my software is up-to-date.
