iOS 10. 1 Latest News and Updates: Battery Problems Still Exist With New Update; 30 Percent Drop in Battery Life Noted
The new Apple iOS 10.1.1 update is killing the battery of iPhones with issues surfacing left and right. A battery bug reportedly drains the power of an iPhone by 30 percent.
iOS 10.1.1 update
Apple's battery problem reportedly started when the iOS 10.1 came out but it was still not solved when the iOS 10.1.1 recently came out. Users primarily complained of battery life dropping by as much as 30 percent.
Instant shut down
A user even narrated that the iPhone can go from a 30 percent battery to 0 percent then dies out. This has become a major concern for many who want to conserve their battery for a day. It has also bothered many that when they plug their battery-drained devices, it automatically registers a 30 percent battery.
"I had tried downgrading to 10.1, then retried 10.1.1 then installed the Dec beta 10.2 ver3. And all of these firmwares had the issue," one iPhone user noted. There are also a lot more users complaining about battery problems with their units.
iOS 10.2 beta version
The 10.1.1 update rolled out last Oct. 31 but a revised version came out nine days after for users who were not able to download the latest offer. An iOS 10.2 beta version has also been released but users of this update still complained that the battery issue remains. The battery life may have improved with the beta version but an iPhone still reportedly shuts down even when there is still ample battery left.
