As long as you are happy with the answer you received, that's all that matters.
I work for Apple support, and this has not been an issue with the release of this new software.
My recommendation for you, would be to do a restore of your phone as a new phone, then bring back the applications you use most(or enjoy). You must have a software problem with an application that is causing this battery issue.
