iPhone update drains batteries unexpectedly2016-11-28 16:27 by Daniela
Along with "stability improvements and bug fixes" Apple's latest iOS update, 10.1.1 seems to carry a new battery bug. The tech company's support page was flooded with complaints in the past week.
Some users complain that after updating to iOS 10.1 (or iOS 10.1.1), certain iPhone models get their power drained extremely quickly, shut down unexpectedly at around 30% charge and would refuse to turn on, due to an empty battery.
Others said they would wake up with no battery after turning their phones off with 80 per cent the night before. Upon plugging in the charger after such a shutdown occurs, the handsets would display 30% charge after just a few seconds.
