To disable the “Setting Time Zone”.

  • The only thing the users have to do is to manually change the time once you travel to a different time zone.

    The problem was mainly identified by Oliver Haslam of iDownload Blog in which he claims that

    The problem was mainly caused by a bug in iOS5 which initiates the location tracking circuitry to constantly check mobile phone towers in order to determine the location of the smartphone.

  • The program probably makes use of the signal from the mobile phone towers in order to get a confirmation on the current location.

  • The fact is that this feature is an optional feature which means the users can use it only if they desire to use it.

    But all good works come with critics too. There are many users who have tested by disabling the Setting Time zone and they claim that they have not seen a considerable change in the battery life even after doing so. Where as Apple has not officially commented on the bug that is causing the problem in iPhone 4S.
