iOS4 quickly drains iPod Touch battery

Since I updated my iPod Touch 2G to iOS4 several weeks back, I haven’t really used it very often. So last night, I pulled it from the charger and played a single podcast.

Then this morning, I woke up and saw that the iPod Touch had its battery almost drained.

Ipod Touch Battery Drain • Ios4 Quickly Drains Ipod Touch Battery

Realme Philippines

In less than 10 hours, the iPod Touch went from 100% to 10% battery life and all I did was play a 30-minute podcast.

The culprit, it seems, is iOS4. Been reading more about this now from searching for similar incidents but have not gotten a fix for it. Probably, downgrading and reverting back to the previous OS might help.

Anybody out there experienced the same problem and found a fix?

I have this problem too, Ipod Touch 2nd Gen, battery drains overnight, before sleeping it was left on home screen.

Today I will try Ken’s suggestion to turn off Notifications to see if that helps…Thx for the tip.

I totaly have the same problem.
Since the update to os4 it’s all but trouble with my iPod Touch 2G (16gb).
It’s getting way hitter as well as it drains the battery empty when I’m nit even using it.
I haven’t got mine jailbraked but I’m consisering it since there isn’t a other way to downgrade my framewire (isn’t it?).

Pls someone has a solution on this.

Good luck,
SojaBird.

I forget where I read it but for the Ipodtouch,
IOS4 leaves the wifi on unlike before where once it goes to sleep, it disconnects..

so that may be one of the reasons

For 1st gen ipod touch owners: If I were Steve jobs, I would say to you… “Go get a new ipod…(with a greedy grin).”

that’s unfair? iOS4 is only compatible with 2nd gen 3rd gen ipod touch? how about for 1st gen?

YES, it drains my batt very much! But googling around, the solution was simple:

close multitasking apps from the multitasking bar.

It improved my batt life!

As for the iDevices without MultiTasking, I feel you folks, and don’t get it…

yup! ios4 sucks! my ipod touch 2g battery life is getting worst. I use my ipod as a backup for my android phone for emails and facebooking. 10 minutes lang nga surfing, half agad ang battery meter. Upgrading ios4 was a headache cuz nagka conflict yung usb drivers when using windows vista. I had to look for a macbook to restore the damn thing.

that’s true especially a jailbroken ios4 but normal ios4 also drains battery alot.

it seems like some apps with notifications “on” and not yet compatible with ios4 for some reason stays connected with the wifi in frozen state on multitasking. thus considerably draining battery life.

I fixed with turning all push notifications off .. Or just pick which app u like to have push notification. Im very sure this is the problem.

I have my iPod Touch 32G (3rd Gen) updated to iOS4 and surpringly battery life seem to have improved 10-20%. I would normally recharge every other day but now I change every 2 days with the same use on a day to day basis… I think you may wanna check if your battery is already worn out?

You might have left some apps running. I’m using an ipod touch and the battery life is the same
