iOS 10.1.1 Is Causing Some Battery Probz
We love all things Apple. iPhones… MacBooks… apple pie (#sorrynotsorry). What we DON’T love is when our treasured gadgets start having problems, like crashing because of a video or just, you know, dying randomly. Eek! You can’t constantly refresh your Twitter feed if your phone is dead.
Battery life is obviously one of the most important features in a phone, and companies take this into account when making hardware and software updates. They try to, anyway. When Apple released their newest version of iOS, users were excited to get their hands on Portrait Mode for the 7 Plus, and people in Japan were eager to use the transit options. Apple also promised stability improvements and bug fixes, but it’s kind of hard to see those improvements when your phone dies at 30 percent — the update is suspected of causing tons of iPhones’ batteries to drain super fast. Yikes. How are we supposed to sleep if we can’t get our late-night Netflix fix?
Luckily, Apple is usually pretty quick to address its users’ concerns, so we should see a patch within the next few days. Until then, you should either wait to update your phone or, if you already have updated, keep a portable charger handy at all times.
