Answer:
Answer:

There is no way to know the answer to your question since the rapid battery drain you are experiencing might be due to other factors than a software update.


However, if you do update to the latest version, it may be easier to identify the cause of the rapid battery drain if the problem persists.


If you are undecided about upgrading you could try the Apple tips for optimizing battery usage through settings and also have the Genius Bar do a hardware check to eliminate that as a source of your current problems.

I’ve got iPhone 6 and since ios11 battery drain same as you. Every update including today’s 11.2 hasn’t fixed issue. If anything it’s got worse with each update. 80% battery at start of 11.2 update. 30 minutes later phone dead. Tried to power it up and got red battery symbol. Put it on charge and 5 mins later it said 65% battery. Total screwed battery charge and can’t trust it’s readings. 2hrs after fully charged 100% it’s at 4%. Charging iPhone takes forever using iPad charger randomly but too frequently.

Notification turned off and set to manual push notifications for emails. Locations/privacy turned off. Good carrier and WiFi signal strength. Low power mode helps but not much.

I’ve lost all confidence in an update that’ll fix this issue.
