Apple iPhone users are facing battery drain issues after upgrading to iOS 10.1.1 and users have taken to company’s support page to discuss the same. One of the user Mjolcresure who updated his iPhone 5 to iOS 10.1 said the phone goes down from 30 per cent charge to 1 per cent in a few seconds and then shuts down.

When connected to a charger, iPhone reboots and shows 30 per cent charge, which can be used for a good few hours. The user pointed out another issue, “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.”

Apple iPhone 6, 6s and 7 users, who are facing the same problem, urged Apple to fix it urgently.

“Interestingly I also identified this problem on my iPhone 7, and it only has 7 days of use, unfortunately I’m already having a bad experience with the new iPhone 7, although the problem is only iOS 10.1.1 should fix this urgently,” said another user who goes by the name MaiconHerverton.

A user adelphos195 tried downgrading to 10.1, reinstalling 10.1.1 and then updating to beta 10.2 version 3 in an attempt to solve the problem. But it looks like nothing is helping with the battery drain issue so far.

Apple has not acknowledged the battery drain issue for iPhone so far. However, we could expect the Cupertino giant to issue a fix for the same.

Apple replacing batteries for iPhone 6s users was also a topic of discussion on the community page. While some users are still waiting for their iPhone 6s batteries to get replaced, those with replaced batteries want to wait and see if the battery drain issue persists for them.

Apple is replacing batteries for iPhone 6s users whose phones may unexpectedly shut down. The issue occurs when the device might still reflect enough charge like 40 or 50 per cent, but it shuts down without warning. It only comes back to life when put on charging again.
