Apple’s latest iOS update 10.1.1, is resulting in many iPhones to lose their battery life faster than normal. Many users have reported a battery bug on their phones on this 13-page thread in the Apple’s official Support Communities forum saying that their iPhone models are shutting down as if sapped of battery even when the battery indicators are showing 30 percent mark.
Strangely, when these iPhones are plugged back in, they quickly jump back to that 30 percent mark. The complaints suggest the point of the shutdown could be slightly higher or lower than 30 percent, and that the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, and iPhone 5s have been affected.
Notably, a week back Cupertino giant had announced a free battery replacement program for users experiencing "unexpected shutdown issues," but said that the problem only affected "a very small number of iPhone 6s devices" manufactured between September and October 2015.
However, the problem now seems to be much bigger than the “very small number of iPhone 6s devices” but no one knows about the fix as of now. Apple hasn’t commented on the reports as yet.
But that’s not all. iPhone users are apparently also reporting problems with their Apple Earpods. Apple users say the update is causing the microphone of their Earpods to breakdown during phone calls.
Hopefully, the glitches can get fixed by the next Apple update, iOS 10.2, which will be launched in the first half or December.
