iPhone battery life with iCloud

Posted at — Feb 24, 2012

I do not have any proof, however, over the last two days I have had a serious drop in battery life and the only thing I have done is turn on iCloud. Granted I expected that when I first initiated PhotoStream because all of the images that needed to be passed around.However last night I left the house with 80% battery and while I was sitting in the waiting room of a local hospital (with free wifi that requires a T&C agreement) The battery dropped to 40% within the first hour. The battery was at 20% by the second hour and the iPhone turned itself in the 3rd hour.Seems to me that iCloud+wifi is just draining the battery but I have no proof.  I’ve turned off iCloud and now let’s see what happens.
