Apple releases iOS 10.3.2 update with bug fixes, security improvements, and a severe battery drain
Today, Apple released iOS 10.3.2 to compatible iPhone and iPad devices. The update will fix some bugs, and improve the security of your iOS powered devices. Before updating your iPhone or iPad, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network. You should also plus your phone into a power source. Once that is done, follow these directions: Tap Settings > General > Software Update.

Already, there have been complaints made about the battery drain that has been an unexpected result of installing the iOS 10.3.2 update. One gentleman by the name of Kamlesh Parmar is a technical support lead at a big time services firm that deals with the enterprise. He has seen updated iPhone and iPad units lose 10% to 20% of their battery life just ten minutes after unplugging from a full charge. His Apple iPhone 6 is similarly affected even though it has been stuffed inside with a brand new Apple battery.

We would expect Apple to soon issue an update to prevent the battery on your iPhone or iPad from melting down like a soft serve cone from McDonald's on a scorching hot day. Until then, if you notice a substantial change in the battery life on your device, you might want to invest in a cheap power bank to tide you over until the issue is resolved.

These days, you can buy a 10,000mAh or higher power bank rather cheaply. One place to look is Amazon, which usually has a wide selection of decently priced power banks in stock.
