In testing for our new production release, my testers noted a significant drop in battery life. Testing our current production app (compiled and submitted 31 July on 5.2.12) gave about 7:40 battery life before the phone died. Testing 5.2.13 yeilded only 5:40 battery life.
We are currently trying to test 5.3.6 (latest beta version) but I don't have the results yet. The above results have been repeated about 6 times though.
I will post more information when I have it.
Results with 5.3.6 were 6:21 minutes - better than 5.2.13, but well below 5.2.12.
Anything else I can provide?
Do you have a test case (or even your entire project)?
Rolf - the entire project is pretty precious to the startup I work for - do you have an NDA (or is our NDA ok with you guys) basically to protect us with regards to giving you our codebase?
I spoke to the CEO at length, and he's keen to help you guys find this fault as we're committed to MonoTouch, but he wants protection for us from the investors etc.
Request sent to support last Friday - no response thus far.
Using Instruments to check CPU use, it seems that calling UIDevice.CurrentDevice.BatteryMonitoringEnabled = true causes an increase in CPU activity, even if you have no notifications registered or do not actually monitor the battery. Did something change in this area of MonoTouch from 5.2.12 to 5.2.13?
Dean, did this issue get resolved?
Closing since no response to comment #7.
If this is still an issue, maybe you could attach any Instruments data (in comment #6 you say you profiled for CPU use with Instruments, that might reveal something)?
