iOS6 battery usage - 10/01/12 11:20 PM

It seems to be up on my iP4 over iOS5's usage. Under iOS5, my usage was about 20% daily and under iOS6, it's 30% on a normal usage day (when I'm working, I don't use the iPhone nearly at all - I'm not a power user by any stretch of the imagination). The one app that really seems to suck battery life is the FB app. I've begun shutting down background apps whenever I think about it, too. Anyone else notice a difference in battery usage?

My impression was that all apps running in the background are idle till in the foreground...

Could be, but my battery usage seems to be less (not a whole lot) when I kill them off.
