Reported by 9to5Mac, some iPhone 12 owners are experiencing unusual battery drain on their new iPhones. More than 500 iPhone 12 users have reached out to Apple's official support communities online in regards to the issue, 9to5Mac reports.
While faster battery drain can be expected when you first get a new iPhone due to all of the app installs and data loading going on in the background, the users in Apple's Community Support forums are reporting excessive drain even when the phone is in Low Battery Mode or on standby overnight.
Users are reporting that battery drain can be so high that an iPhone 12 Pro can lose 50% charge overnight while an iPhone 12 Mini can discharge completely. More commonly, affected users see a 20-30% drop overnight.
"I'm an engineer working in the mobile telecom industry and the discharge rate currently seen on my iPhone 12 is a faulty curve," states one affected user who notes he has a track record in working with Apple on bug reports.
So far attempts to isolate the problem have come up short, with users disabling mobile data, GPS, WiFi, push email and even factory resetting their phones without success. Interestingly, one user reports that simply having a SIM installed causes his iPhone 12 Pro battery to drop dramatically and removing it stopped the drain. Some people have found restarting their phone resolves the issue while others reported toggling airplane mode works to fix it.
