    Battery Drain Issues With iOS 14.2 Update

     

    iOS 14.2

    Apple recently released iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2, the second major updates to the iOS and iPadOS 14 operating system updates that were released in September. iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 come two weeks after the launch of iOS 14.1. The iOS 14.2 update can be downloaded for free

    But many iPhone users who are updating to iOS 14.2 are facing battery drain issues. There have been a number of iPhone users on Reddit and Apple’s developer forums who are reporting battery issues with the latest iOS 14.2 updates.

    According to a MacRumors report, most of the iPhones that have been affected appear to be the older models, such as the iPhone XS, iPhone 7, iPhone 6S, and first-generation iPhone SE. Some users have posted that the 2018 iPad Pro running iPadOS 14.2 also seems to have been affected.

    Users have reported on Reddit that their devices are draining over 50 percent battery in less than 30 minutes. They have also noticed a major drop in battery around five percent within minutes of normal use.

    "I updated my iPhone 7+ to iOS 14.2 and now I have a battery drain problem and it takes a long time to be charged and warmup during charging," one user posted.

    "My battery life hasn't been as good either on 14.2. However, I'd gladly sacrifice more battery life… just fix the message notification bug, Apple please," another said on Reddit.

    It’s been just two weeks that iOS 14.2 and iPadOS 14.2 came out after iOS 14.1 and iPadOS 14.1, in the second major update to the iOS and iPadOS 14 operating systems that were released in September.

    However, the battery drain issue seems to be related to software rather than hardware as multiple users are seeing a sudden gain in battery life after restarting their device.

    Apple’s support page has reached out to some of the users who were complaining about the battery issues on Twitter, although the company hasn’t made a statement acknowledging the problem yet.
