    Default Poor iPhone OS 3.0 Battery Life - Because of Debug Logging?

    Just a quick question..
    I was able to install the 3.0 beta..but seem to have my device running a bit hot..and i guess it is consuming battery...
    it does consume lots of battery compare to a standard release..
    could this be cuz is communicating to Apple..sending log reports???
    just wondering?!?!?

    there's probably a lot of debugging going on in the background. not that i have any idea whether i'm right or wrong.

    There may be a bit of error logging going on, but it's probably more likely to be the errors causing the logs that are draining your battery.

    Open up Xcode and go to Window > Organizer. Select your iPhone on the left and you can have a look at the crash logs & console. Not that there's really anything you can do about it...

    Maybe because it's a Beta.

    Dumb questiong, but for those who are merrily upgrading just for the fun of it can you go back to 2.2.1, or is it a one way trip?

    happy to wait until the majority of the bugs are ironed out here... though I'd bet there'll be at least one or two problems come June/July whenever it is.

    Apparently it's possible. Someone in the comments at Dev-Team Blog - Itchy update fingers has done it but it doesn't downgrade the baseband (ie Modem Firmware) so you would still have the 3.0 version of that.

    Yeah, it's pretty severe. Battery now has trouble making it through a working day with barely any use.
