Question: IOS 11.4.1 Terrible battery drain

I was on ios 11.3 and updated to iOS IOS 11.4.1 which shocked me with severe battery drain. I’d say iOS 11.3 served better battery consumption. Please, Apple, do something to iOS IOS 11.4.1 to prevent battery drain. My device is iPad mini 2 with retina display.

Same Problem here: 11.4 was perfectly fine. 11.4.1 (iphone X) is problematic -> huge battery drain & Siri is the main battery consumer now. Can this be fixed? Anyone else this problem?

Same for me. I was on 11.3 and updated 11.4 and battery life went crashing. I thought the recent 11.4.1 was supposed to fix the battery drain issue but it looks like its done nothing.

Same here. The company apple has gone from world class to complete f* up. They care more about getting it out than getting it right.


I can’t even access the battery option. Constantly resets itself. What a health and safety issue.


Really considering switching to another brand. Fed up

I suggest that if you're having any kinds of battery issues right after the update, go to the settings and reset your phone to all settings and network settings. don't worry, it won't reset any apps or any data on your iPhone. And see for yourself if you're still experiencing any battery drain issues. Because every time i'm installing a software update to my phone, i always used that method and it works 87% all the time.

Before posting a message here, I have tried any kind of settings reset: all settings, after network settings. And the issue is still present.

At the moment using my iPhone without Wi-Fi, Location services and all the time on Power saving mode. At least it help somehow to use the iPhone.

Just a terrible update. My phone restarted 3 times today. Battery life was bad to begin with, even with a brand new battery installed, and now it's just ridiculous. As an example, at over 30% left I was simply doing a search for a particular email. After a few minutes there first was an error, and then the phone just shut down. iPhone 6.

I say we boycott all apple products until they put their customers first and fix the problems before releasing an update and not fixing the problem, making the problem worse and/or causing new problems.


Enough is enough!!
