yup. i'm having that problem… in my usage the standby time and usage time shows same for both so i guess after this update wifi is always on even on standby time when the phone is not using anything… 

 

i hope i'm wrong. now i'm waiting for the next update to fix this.

Perhaps I'm not understanding what you mean by standby but when i phone is sitting idle it's still connected to the network. it's not in a hibernation mode that disconnects itself from all network services. If that happened it would surely use less power but you also wouldn't get calls, SMS, emails, iMessages, or any push messages to the device.

i don't know but prior to iOS 6.0.2 when my phone is in standby mode and the moment i switch on the screen it shows that it is connected on EDGE even though i'm sitting at home very near to wifi and after 2-3 seconds wifi sign is back on. it always works the same for my iPads and iPhones from the beginning. 

after iOS 6.0.2 even though my phone is on standby mode for a longer period and when i switch on the screen it shows it is connected to wifi.

 

so my understanding is that this is the main reason of battery drainage which people (including me) are complaining about the iPhone 5 iOS 6.0.2

although my battery drainage problem is nowhere near the way people are complaining on apple's forums that their battery is going down every hour about 20% or something. mine is affected overall about down to 10-15% from full charge.

 

i hope i made it clear this time.

I was able to find this comment on an Apple Community thread...

In 4.0 and 4.0.1 the wifi was persistent on the iphone.

In 4.0.2 they changed it to disconnect after being in sleep for 10 seconds.

However, if your data connection is turned off in the settings the wifi will remain on when in sleep.

This was confirmed by a member of Applecare.

Maybe they changed the way it works with this update. You might want to give them a call to get more details. If you do, would please post them here so we can all be up to date with the latest iOS policies/settings?

i can't even try as i'm in china right now and it's not easy to discuss with the chinese staff at apple store. i might have already tried if i were in U.S.

though i would love the update about latest iOS policies/settings.

i restored my iPhone 5 from iCloud backup iOS 6.0.2 and seems like battery problem has been solved and my usage time shows the actual usage time now (not like before where usage time and standy time were both same, for example standby time was 20 hours and usage time was also 20 hours). if any update i will let you guys know later.

but the wifi is still slow as before. i'm sitting very near to my newest time capsule in my office and my internet speed is 5mbps but i'm getting on my iPhone 5 only about 800kbps whereas iPad and macbook pro are not affected and they get the full speed.

No, they're not going to make a 6.0.3 to "fix" the 6.0.2. Just upgrade.

Whatever is newest. If that's 6.0.2 for your device, get that. If it's still 6.0.1, go there if you haven't yet.

if there is no problem with iOS 6.0.2 then surely there is no meaning to bring 6.0.3 but if some people are having problem i think there should be an update coming… I'm not saying that definitely there will be an update as these things only Apple knows it.

you sounds very confident that there is no "fix" coming for 6.0.2, i'm not questioning you but why are you over confident about it?

That's weird, my iPhone 5 with 6.0.1 is getting ~20Mbps/6Mbps on my WRT54GL router. My ISP is Comcast and my desktop gets 35/6 over LAN.

No, that doesn't follow by any system of logic.

Because there's no problem with 6.0.2.

for you ok i believe so, how can you say that there is no problem for others? well maybe the problem is not only 6.0.2 but maybe mixed with hardware but surely there is some kind of problem otherwise people won't be reporting many problems.

 

anyways when i restored my iPhone 5 the battery problem has been solved fully but the slow wifi problem still exists…

i just wish mine gets to normal asap. i'm in china now and many of my friends are using iPhone 5 and literally all of them have the slower wifi and i cannot find one iPhone 5 which doesn't have this problem… 

i bought from a reseller and he showed me 10 new iPhone 5's there and all of them had slower wifi.

 

i know but it is really very strange.

Right! Exactly! Or it stems from a lack of knowledge on the part of the user, like other problems can. There ARE devices out there with Wi-Fi/battery problems, but these aren't all inherent to the new software. And what's left isn't all inherent to bad hardware. Plenty of it can simply be lack of knowledge.


…but surely there is some kind of problem otherwise people won't be reporting many problems.

 

You'd be surprised.

Hi,

 

I got my iphone 5 yesterday. I was recommended by itune to download the 6.0.2. I am not happy with this version because it is killing my battery. I could only use the phone for 5 hours of 100% full charge. I wonder when the new updates would release to fix this problem.

Try backing up your phone and restoring again to 6.0.2
This helped me so you can give it a try.

I don't know the exact facts on this issue but a friend of mine told me iPhones sold in China are different than the ones sold in other parts of the world. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

 

The speed of your WiFi depends on the speed the provider is giving you. If you're provider is only giving you 1.5Mbps/768Kbps then no doubt your Wifi will be slow. I go to Shanghai for business trips and I know China's internet is nothing compared to the speeds I get here in the US. The Great Firewall also affects the speed.

Ok guys,

Since the update itunes doesnt recognize my iphone and actually my mac doesnt recognize it at all too... So i cant even charge my phone on my mac anymore... So yes , i guess there will be a 6.03 update coming...

With the info you provided there is no way to tell if it's a problem with 6.0.2 or some other issue, like the installer messed something up as in a file being corrupted. Have you searched high and low to find a resolution? If not, how come? If so, you clearly haven't found a resolution but did you find anyone else with this exact issue? If your Mac is a notebook I'd schedule an important with Apple and bring in your Mac, iPhone, and cable so the Genius can see what is happening and why. I am certain they can resolve this issue for you, even if means giving you a new phone because not being able to see your iPhone when plug it directly into your Mac is a major issue.

I would also try other devices in those USB ports to see if they show up and/or if they can supply power to those accessories. Even if there is a protocol issue with USB for data the pins for charging should not be affected which points to a different issue altogether. Plugging in other devices into the USB ports will help you determine if the issue is with iPhone or Mac.
