iDevice gets better battery life with Ping turned off

If you have updated your iDevice (that would mean the iPod, iPhone or iPad) to iOS 4.3, chances are pretty good you would have noticed that the battery life isn’t what it used to be. That might sound like bad news to you folks out there, but it isn’t all doom and gloom, you know – there is a workaround to “solve” this situation, and it will involve disabling Ping for a noticeable jump in your device’s battery capabilities, as it is restored to what it is before the latest update. Turning off Ping is pretty simple, just head on to Settings, choose General > Restrictions, click on Enable Restrictions, enter a new pincode, and last but not least, Disable Ping. Make sure that the switch is clicked so that it ends up as a shade of blue grey. This will result in you sacrificing social music recommendation on your device, but we don’t suppose that’s the price you’re willing to pay for superior battery life?
