Latest iOS leaves iPhone users anxious due to battery drain out issue

One user, who appears to have an iPhone 6s with a case of "touch disease", says Apple replaced the device itself rather than just the battery, despite its serial number not matching the ones Apple was accepting under its battery-replacement program. It was running perfectly. To recall, this update was meant to get rid of bugs as well as provide stability to certain components of iOS 10. The users started complaining of this one by one and number is growing. 9to5Mac also notes that some Apple stores have reported low battery stock for these repairs.

"So it goes from zero charge to 30% in the time it takes to reboot?" The battery usage list doesn't give any reason for the battery's shortened life.

It's largely expected that Apple will release another update that serves as a patch to this issue.

There's also the fairly common issue of the lightning port becoming clogged with lint, making it impossible for the lighting plug to fully seat in the port. Last week, for instance, it announced that it would replace malfunctioning batteries in some iPhone 6S units free of charge. Full factory resets have been tried, but fail to solve the problem. The issue remained the same.

Next-generation Ford Fiesta
Some European reports suggest an electric or petrol-electric hybrid might be planned for the all-new Ford Fiesta at some stage. Certainly that dash looks a lot better for having fewer buttons on it! They can detect pedestrians as well as vehicles.

Although updates are supposed to bring new features, bug fixes, and security patches to your phone or tablet, there will always be unforeseen glitches along the way that may slip through the beta testing process.

People are very irritated with the new iOS 10.1.1 update and users are reporting that even when they downgrade to the previous version, the problem still remains. Both Samsung and Apple have had serious issues that have caused serious disruption for their customers.

Per Digital Trends, there even are complaints that devices suddenly die even with still about 30 to 50 percent of battery life. Some of them are overheating, too many background apps or multitasking, using non-original chargers etc can cause the battery performance to fluctuate.

No OS update is ever flawless, but Apple's iOS 10 initially launched to strong reviews and fewer reports of problems than we've seen with some of Apple's other launches.
