The new iPhone 4S is apparently plagued by battery problems.

A flaw in the new smartphone's location software is causing batteries to drain rapidly.

Some iPhone users say their phones are only lasting a few hours, even with minimal use.

Several tech bloggers are suggesting users shut off the setting time zone feature when not traveling to help conserve the battery life.

Apple has not made any comments on the reported battery problems.
