Apple continues to work on improving its forgettable iOS 10 updates but it seems that they are nowhere near of avoiding bugs. From compatibility to security issues, the latest problem brought about by the latest iOS 10.1.1 hampers device performance.

Released back on Nov. 9, iOS 10.1.1 has reportedly bought in a bug tied up to device batteries. It seems that the current operating system has somehow been eating up the power on devices and pulling them down to 30-percent before eventually shutting down, Neurogadget reported.

Some tried to plug it in but end up discovering that the phone still has 30-percent of juice in them. In short, the batteries do not really use up all the power and force the shut down for some inexplicable reason.

Aside from that, there is another claim wherein phones left unattended before going to bed would suffer almost the same thing. Apple devices with charges such as 80-percent would eventually shut down as well. When plugged in, they show 30% of charge left in them.

Some have reportedly tried to downgrade to the previous version or upgrade to iOS 10.2 beta with hopes of fixing the issue. Unfortunately the ploy hasn’t worked and the battery drain bug remains.

Apple has not yet issued an official statement on the problem which adds to the growing woes of the buggy iOS 10.1. iOS 10.2 is in the fourth beta and is believed to be coming out this December, 9to5Mac reported. The battery drain bug is a recent one so it will be interesting if Apple developers would have time to factor in a fix to address the battery-related issue.

It has been a tough couple of months for the iOS 10 and Apples continued the rollout of version updates. The latest one is pretty serious with the Cupertino company pressed to come out with a viable fix to avoid grumpy Apple device owners this Christmas season.
