11.4 iOS iPhone drains the battery in minutes


Users of mobile Apple devices began to complain of sudden battery drain after upgrading to iOS 11.4. Recall, this update was released in late may and brought the long-awaited AirPlay support 2, as well as Messages in iCloud.

We are talking about really rapid discharge. For example, one of the iPhone 6+ has complained that after the update the battery is dead from 50% to 20% in a matter of minutes with a smartphone even was not used. While such parameter as Battery Health (“battery Health”) reaches 90%.

On the official Apple forum has several branches of discussion. One of them nearly a thousand users confirmed its existence on their devices.

Judging by the reviews, the battery level is low, regardless of the model iPhone. In some cases it helps to disable the connect to the Wi-Fi networks, and in other — toggle Wi-Fi with 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz. But other users, such “tricks” do not work. As a result, many fell back to iOS 11.3.1 and battery again began to miss the usual time.

Apple itself has not yet commented on the situation. The solution is expected in the next iOS updates.
