Question: Every since the last two upgrades by Apple, the battery on my phone is rapidly discharging. I spent four hours in the apple store yesterday and that didn't solve the issue. I've had the phone on for only an hour and the battery is already depleted.

I have the same problem. It's been 10 days since I updated to ISO 11.1.2. The discharge is getting worse every day. So waiting for housecleaning hasn't worked. My battery life capacity is showing 100%. My battery only discharges to 12% before it dies.

Did the "genius" say anything about the new iOS needing to do "housecleaning" of old code in the background?

This happens with every major upgrade & some updates - sometimes even resulting in the phone getting noticeably "hot"


Every time that I have recommended some "old advice" (c. iOS 9.?) to wait 24-48 hours and post back if the issue does not right itself, no one has come back to report either way - I must assume that it works, since no complaints

I believe that we are not alone. Apple refuses to do anything to correct the problem. I've spent many hours online and in-store with no results. Nothing has changed. The iPhone is still discharging rapidly. I have to carry a charging cable and a plug around with me everywhere I go.

What iPhone model?

Report current iOS version.


It is time for you to tell a more complete story of all the events - detailed.

Write down times of events so you can report precise data - "alarmingly fast" is not data (though I get what you mean)


What did the Genius actually SAY? 4 hours is a long time just to have them throw their hands in the air.


What you need to do is develop a story from experimental procedures that can be replicated by the Genius... take the fully charged iPhone - OFF - to the Genius Bar and demonstrate what happens
