I have similar issues, I have a 4S and have noticed that since the upgrade the phones Wifi reception is worse. I can no longer get Wifi reception in places of the house I used to and I have noticed that the phones drops 3G reception and is very slow to reconnect, twice I have had to turn 3G on and off to get it to work.

The other problem I have noticed is that the phone does not seem to get picked up by itunes for Wifi synching and I have to manually reconnect the phone to get it to register in itunes.

I am having similar issues with my 3Gs since upgrading. Battery life is less than 50% of what it was before update.
My wireless connectivity is much worse and Wifi is always tuning in and out in my home where it used to work flawlessly before the update.

I also have seen lagging in some apps and it takes forever to reboot. When it finally does it sticks at the lock screen for another 30 seconds before it becomes active. Frustrating to say the least.

I cannot be the only one, others must have issues like this. All I did was update a perfectly working phone and now it is useless as I am out in the field all day, My phone has died every day at around noon since the update, the battery was at least 50% at the end of the day previously.

Cheers,
BCRose

I wish I could help but don't know what is going on. I have read many with the same results as me and some that said nothing changed. Not sure what is up but will check around.

I have put in a support request to Apple but thought I would check here to see how it went with others.

After searching Google for similar issues I found that simply RESETING my phone solved the battery issue.
