Most smartphone owners complain about the battery life of their device, but it seems that iPhone users who have updated to the latest version of iOS 10 are complaining more than most.
The problem appears to be that the latest iOS 10 update – iOS 10.1.1 – is closing devices down when they are still showing that 30% of the battery is remaining.
The Apple forum has been swamped with posts and comments relating to the iPhone’s battery life since the update.
One Apple fan called Mjolcresure, posted: “Updated my iPhone 5 to iOS10.1 and have been having battery problems.
“1 – It jumps from 30% charge to 1% in a few seconds then shuts down. Now here is the stranger part.
“As soon as it reboots after connecting to a charger it show 30% charge. When I unplug it right away it still shows 30% and runs like nothing happened for a good few hours.
“So it goes from zero charge to 30% in the time it takes to reboot? Strange.
“2 – Shutting the phone down at night with a good 80% charge, it won’t reboot in the morning due to no battery charge. I plug it in and its back to 30% in a few seconds.”
It does come as something of a surprise that so many devices have been as badly affected as the release of iOS 10.1.1 was not seen as anything to substantial.
If fact, according to the release notes, it was designed just to fix a few bugs.
Apple, like most manufacturers advise users to upgrade to latest operating system so the fact that the latest version is causing a few “issues” in frustrating for most users.
Luckily, Apple appears to be preparing another update. A beta version of iOS 10.2 has just been released and should go live to world in the coming weeks.
