Apple releases iOS 10.3.2 update with bug fixes, security improvements, and a severe battery drain

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.

How many updates did it take to fix Lollipop? Or did we forget why marshmallow exists?

Nowhere near as much updates as it took to fix iOS 8 for sure, what's your point?

You are mistaken. Lollipop was bad. Why else do you think Google rushed marshmallow out with a new version number and all?

There were 4 updates to lollipop ( https://sck.pm/vuR ), and 10 updates to iOS 8 ( https://sck.pm/jjU ), what's mistaken? Still not sure what point you're trying to make here...

Lmfao what? Marshmallow was rushed? With a new version number and all? It was released in October, almost a year after lollipop. It brought native fingerprint scanner and usb-c support with it, among other things. Do your parents know youre on the internet at this hour? Dont you have school tomorrow?

Disagree, I running a stock version of Lollipop in one of my OEM phone. No issue at all. I do have to watch my battery usage on my Note 3 which is running on Samsung stock Lollipop ROM. So it's not a straightforward Lollipop issue rather which vendor Lollipop ROM are you talking about. Generic Lollipop v5.1 no problem at all.

About 95% less updates I believe.

It's petty clear from the content of his posts that it's Mxy. I wonder why he closed his original account... It was so famous on PA.

Marshmallow wasn't made to fix Lollipop, it was made to bring new features, no different than a new version of iOS. 5.1 was released to fix the failpop 5.0 haha

So, updates are bad... That's one way to cope with the fact that Android phones get minimal updates.

74. MrElectrifyer

Posts: 3960; Member since: Oct 21, 2014

That's a simpleton way of looking at it. Updates that cause severe problems and require another update to fix them, and another update to fix the fix, and so on, or are outright planned obsolescence updates ( https://goo.gl/cs4owh ), are bad updates...

The sad part is that you really believe that bulls**t you're talking about... Sure, having so many things updated every month can lead to bugs - some small, some big - but there's more to be gained. As for the so called "planned obsolescence", let me remind you that a 4 yo iPhone runs the latest iOS and does everything it did when it was released; that's it, I wouldn't want you to try and find another company that does that, because there is none.

The saddest part is that you're so brainwashed to the extent that you proudly to turn a blind eye to the fact that the new OS update hampers performance and you have no fkn choice to restore to the OS version that worked for you. As you're clearly having a hard time comprehending that, let me put it in layman's terms just for you; an update that brings your device to a crawl and blocks you from restoring to an earlier OS version that worked for you precisely fits the definition of planned obsolescence ( http://sck.pm/Do ). Not sure about you, but I'd rather have a device with an "outdated" yet versatile software working well, than a device with the latest update, but running badly. As for other companies releasing updates for 4 year old devices, maybe you've been living under a rock all this while, but a 2008 Windows PC, which came with VIsta, runs faster with Windows 10 faster today. That's beyond merely 4 years of support, so, you thinking that's something special only re-affirms you're brainwashed.

You're funny. New iOS versions on older phones are working at the full hardware capacity; there's no way of upgrading the hardware ota... Old software means security risks; I don't want that on my phone.

You're hilariously gullible. If they can't keep the same performance or improve it, then the update shouldn't be forced on anyone's device with no option of reverting back at their will. That's just pure greed and planned obsolescence. But I guess sheeple are proud of getting forced to buy a new device on their herd master's terms... As for security risks in old software, with continuously updated security software on Android and the habit of thinking before you click, there's next to no worries of malware on older Android OSs. Never had any malware issues since I switched to Android in 2014 on a OnePlus One. iOS being the restricted haven it is, has no such software, so, your only option is to buy a new device if you want "security" and a good performing device...

Nobody is forcing updates; the user has the option to... simply not updating and just use the same device for as long as they can (anyone can buy a 4 with the original iOS on eBay).

"Nobody is forcing updates" Sounds like you turned a blind eye to this ( https://goo.gl/oSTPxa ), this ( https://goo.gl/Vi1Z1p ), and all of these ( http://bfy.tw/C2M4 ), typical blind-faith sheeple... "simply not updating and just use the same device for as long as they can" So when they want to start fresh with the same OS, how do they go about doing that? You seem to be so confident that they're not being forced into anything...

1. iOS is downloading the new version but it's not going to install unless the user gives his agreement. 2. Someone sued an insurance company, because he claimed he was abducted by aliens; another one sued a clothing company, because he couldn't fly in his superman costume; another crazy person thinks Apple is doing stuff to its phone; why do you want me to have an opinion about what crazy people do and think? And 3. As long as Apple is telling you that after upgrade you can't go back to a previous version of iOS, if you choose to upgrade, you can't be complaining that you can't go back to a previous version.

1. So, wasting precious space on my device with only way of getting rid of it being to install the planned obsolescence update, is acceptable to you? 2. Fancy excuse to remain ignoramus 3. Now you're just being outright asinine here. You have no way of starting fresh with the same OS, any attempt of doing that would force the latest iOS on your device, and you think that's the user's fault? You're such a loyal sheeple, apple must be proud of your iGnorance...

There is no "planned obsolescence" with iPhones; every iPhone runs iOS at its full hardware power. There's always the option to clear the storage from "manage storage". iOS belongs to Apple: you use it if you like it and you don't use it if you don't like it - it's that simple. PS: I don't care how you're talking to your friends and other dumb f**ks around you, but as long as you want to talk to me, you'll stop calling me names.

Now you're clearly just remaining in denial despite evidence in front of you. There was never such option on iOS 6 where iOS 7 was forced unto the device. Resetting the device was the only choice and iOS 7 just got forced unto the device again after that. With you being this blindly loyal to apple and acting like they're doing no wrong despite the evidence in front of you, you're clearly just another blind-faith sheeple and there's no point in talking logic with you. Adios.

So that you stop with the "planned obsolescence" nonsense:https://youtu.be/OsGLmNRfRec
