Apple iPhone users are now facing battery drain issues just right after upgrading their iOS to 10.1.1. and users have taken the company's forum page to discuss the matter. In fact, one of their users who had his iPhone  updated to the latest iOS claims that his phone goes down from 30 percent to 1 percent charge a few seconds and then just completely shuts down.

When connected to a charger, the iPhone reboots and shows 30 percent charge, but the problem would still persist. Apple iPhone 6, 6s and 7 users who are facing the same issue asks Apple to urgently address the issue. According to Indian Express, one of the users who tried downgrading his phone to 10.1 and then reinstalling 10.1.1 and updating his phone to beta 10.2 version 3 in an attempt to resolve the issue. But the battery drain issue is persisting so far.

While Apple has agreed to swap out iPhone 6s devices that have faulty batteries for no additional cost, complaints about other iPhone models who have batteries that are dying even with at least 30 percent charge have been picking up steam since the company released iOS 10.1.1 at the end of October.
Apple still hasn't made any official announcement or explanation about the issue or even a timeline for a resolution, but some forum users say that Apple Support is aware of the issue and are currently working on a resolution to the cause of the problem, Indian Express reported.

Some iPhone owners who went ahead and replaced their battery for an additional charge claims that they have now resolved the issue for them. What's still unknown is whether the latest iOS updated caused the battery to wear and tear. According to ZDNet, it's also difficult to say whether all users who updated their OS to iOS 10.1.1. are experiencing the same problem.
