Using the latest version of a software is always a good practice – until you face a serious issue with that version. This statement seems exactly true while talking about the recent issues after installing iOS 10.1.1 update on some iPhones. Although this issue has affected only a small number of iPhones, it’s a matter worth arguing about. So, before stating the solution for battery drain problems, let’s have a look at the actual scenario and some possible causes of the issue.
These are some of the reported problems:
- Battery instantly drained from 30 per cent to zero
- Phones automatically turned off at 30 percent battery
- If the phones were switched off at 80 per cent of battery before night, it’d have completely depleted when trying to turn on in the morning.
And, these problems were reported in most of the iPhone models upgraded to iOS update 10.1.1. irrespective of the phone model.
In Apple official Forums, there are threads about this issues that’s been grown more than 40 pages till now.
It’s not saying that Apple hasn’t taken any serious action on these issues. A free battery replacement facility is available from November 20 for those who faced unexpected shutdown issues. But, it’s sure Apple hasn’t reached the gravity of the situation. This is evident from terms of the replacement program, as it says the battery drain has affected a limited number of iPhone 6s phones released between September and October this year.
