Comments posted online generally seem to show that iOS 11.4.1 squashed this battery bug. Not everyone agrees, though. battery problems in iOS 11.4 began almost as soon as Apple released this version in May. user Zide99 is typical: “My iPhone 6 was working perfectly fine until I updated to iOS 11.4 and ever since I did that my battery is draining rapidly even without me using it at all.” iOS 11.4.1 debuted this week because the release notes said nothing about fixing battery issues. Still, many went ahead and installed the update and are now reporting significant improvements. One user calling himself Bazzar reported on the Apple support community “The iOS 11.4 update killed my iPhone 8 battery life… But iOS 11.4.1? Only about 12 hours experience so far, but battery life is now very good, superficially the drain seems to be even better than with 11.3.” Marco Miltenburg took to Twitter to say “Not mentioned anywhere in the release notes but it … [Read more...] about Looks like iOS 11.4.1 really did fix iPhone battery drain
Apple iphone battery drain
IPHONE owners are accusing Apple of a major gaffe, claiming that the latest software update has slashed their battery life. Users on Reddit and Apple's official support forums say the problems only began after they installed the new iOS 11.4 update. Too-short battery life has always been a controversial topic when it comes to the iPhone – and that's not changing any time soon. The two-week-old iOS 11.4 update appears to be significantly shortening how much iPhone usage you get per charge. One Reddit user said that after the update, their iPhone 6S was "draining faster by 20/25%". Another complained: "I'm at 50% on my [iPhone] X when I get home. Used to be maybe 75% on an average day prior to 11.4." A particularly frustrated iPhone owner said the update has undone all the good work of a recent battery replacement too. "Glad I'm not the only one. iPhone 6 and I did a battery replacement 2-3 months ago. Used to be able to go all day on the new battery and now I find myself … [Read more...] about Mystery iOS 11.4 bug is causing major Apple iPhone battery life problems

PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011) Don't pay attention at wendygarett, he intentionally changes opinions just for trolling purposes. In one comment he may say that he loves an company or product and hates another company or product and suddenly after few minutes he may say totally oposite things. It is the way how he trolls or maybe just his mental problems. posted on 04 Jun 2013, 19:37 1 24.

Have you been noticing that the battery on your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad doesn't last as long as it used to? Do you see an unusual drain on the batteries? German iOS developer Sebastian Düvel noticed and wanted to get to the bottom of things, so he tested iOS code and determined that it is Facebook's apps that are the problem.According to Düvel, the problem is that Facebook's apps aren't turning off when in the background and not being used. The main Facebook app and the Facebook Messenger app apparently go into a cycle where they become active for 10 seconds, go to sleep, become active for 10 seconds, go to sleep and continue the cycle throughout the day. When they are not being used, iOS apps are designed to go to the background and go to sleep until they are called on again by the user. By activating while in the background, the Facebook apps are wearing down the battery.Apple's rules allow audio apps and voice over IP apps to run in the background and Facebook's apps … [Read more...] about Are Facebook’s apps to blame for Apple iPhone battery drain?
An iPhone battery usually lasts throughout a full workday, but rarely much more than a day, which means that you still need to do the ritual of nightly recharging. Also, just like on most Apple devices, the battery inside iPhones is a Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) one, meaning that it degrades after time.With recent iPhone performance slow-down reports linking CPU performance to battery health, you might want to know one crucial detail about the battery: how used is it exactly?Battery age is measured in battery cycles, where one cycle is equal to the process of draining and completely filling up the battery once. This can mean that you use up your battery from 100% until the phone is at 0%, or completely dead, or you can drain 55% of that battery one day and 45% the next day, and together, the two days combine for one, complete 100% battery cycle.Now that we know how you get 1 battery cycle count, we need to know how many cycles can an iPhone battery go through before its capacity deteriorates … [Read more...] about How to check how many battery cycles is your Apple iPhone battery on
