The Apple iPhone 4S is the most desired gadget and the demand for it is increasing day by day. However there are many iPhone 4S users who are not satisfied with the battery life which they claim not even lasts for 10 hours, even on standby mode.

The Apple iPhone 4S is expected to be launched in India in November or December but looking at the battery issues that many users are facing the launch may be delayed, possibly until next year.

The net is buzzing with Apple iPhone 4S owners complaining about the are battery issues especially on Facebook and Twitter. Some users have have reported 10% drop every hour even when the phone is in standby mode. A 10% drop means that the iPhone will hardly last for 10 hours in fact if used, the phone will be usable only for few hours.

Apple engineers are working to resolve this issue but as of now they do not have a solution or a fix. No one is for sure if the problem is with the iPhone 4S handset or with the software iOS 5. Most probably it could be the OS and Apple users might see another iOS 5 update.

If the issue is software related it will not affect the 4S launch in India but a hardware issue will definitely delay it. Airtel and Aircel will be the first to lunch the iPhone 4S in India, well.. whenever that happens. The iPhone 4S has already slowed down the sales of iPhone 4 and that could meet the same fate in India. The iPhone 4 price will drop further in that case.
