There were reports earlier that Apple engineers have contacted some customers who have battery drain issue. And they are trying to diagnose the actual reason behind it. This will let them fix the issue in the next software update. Till the time Apple come up with next iOS software update, you can try out this fix which has worked for many people out there. 

It has been found that battery drain is primarily due to the location services which are used after specific intervals. The feature which is responsible for it is Time Zone.
