If you have upgraded to the iOS 4.3 on your iPhone 3G/3GS or iPod Touch then you might have noticed somewhat faster battery drain. If this happened to you then this is most probably because of the new Ping service introduced starting from the iTunes 10 – a social music discovery service. For most of the users chances are that they are not using it anyway. It is one of the biggest culprit for the rapid battery drainage on the iOS 4.3.
So you should disable it if you are not using it. For that go the Settings –> General and click on the Enable Restriction, then you will have to enter a passcode. After that on the screen that appears you will see that everything is in the Allow list. Scroll down to the Ping and disable it. In case you are not using the Face Time also turn it off. This should help at least to some extent for the users of the iPhone and iPod Touch on iOS 4.3.
In general users looking to improve the iPhone battery should also look at the this article for some guidelines to improve the battery life that are applicable in general to all iDevices with iOS 4.x
