iOS 11.4 seems to have a battery drain problem


Apple’s support forum is lighting up with complaints from iPhone users that iOS 11.4 is hammering their battery life hard.

Devices across the line, from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone X, seem to be sporadically affected. One commonality seems to be seeing the battery drain rapidly overnight.

Some users are claiming that disabling the Handoff feature alleviates the issue, but others are reporting no change after making this tweak. Some of those affected say that restating their iPhone fixed the problem (since this is simple and non-destructive, it might be worth a try).

Battery degradation doesn’t seem to play a part, with some users reporting that iOS’s built-in battery health checker is giving their handset a clean bill of health. Others affected say that their battery was replaced not that long ago.

Others are reporting that their iPhones are running hot after installing the update.

If you’ve not installed iOS 11.4, and are at all worried about suffering from poor battery performance, it might be advisable to wait for Apple to fix this issue before upgrading.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
