The battery drain is already way faster than Apple or the fanboys will admit to, not that I give a crap what either say or believe. I only know that I've never owned any iOS device that didn't drain the battery way faster than it was supposed to, and that includes iPt1, 2, and 4, as well as iPad 1 and 3.

Oh, and one more thing.... I like Google Maps but I'm not sure I will like the Apple app they replaced it with.
Did you return them for a replacement or service?

I've got an iPad that's a year old, use it all day, every day, and I'm still getting at least 10 hours per charge. It does drain a bit faster if I watch Netflix or a similar video app but that's the only time I've ever noticed it.

Google confirmed weeks ago at their developer conference that they would be bringing their own Maps app to iOS.
My statement has nothing to do with anything tubemonkey wrote. I saw on Apple's website they will be using their own Maps app.

Yes, I am with you on that. My ipads battery goes down pretty quickly, but its not a big problem. Just wish they would be more acurate with their details

Huh?


Early reports say that the vector based maps in the Apple version is much better than the Google ones, but that the new satellite photos are crap.

My iPod is only used for audio (net radio, audiobooks, podcasts, etc) and works great with iOS 5. So far, I've seen no compelling reason to upgrade.

I wonder if the upgrade DL will take forever like the iOS upgrade did? It took a few hours to DL with high speed 20Mbips connection. Was slow on Apple's end. Another good reason to wait! Let all the mindless fanboys get it the first day and after a few days the servers will be faster to deliver it.

Why waste my time when all 5 devices have had the same issue? The issue is not a BAD battery, the issue is Apple lies about battery charge longevity. With the iPad 3 it is no big deal as I use it mostly at home where I can easily plug it in. I rarely watch videos--mostly read books and surf the internet a bit and the screen brightness is always fairly low. Same with iPt4.
