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.

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.

Stop projecting. Not only is it not working, but it's pathetic.

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

I got this update a week ago on my 6S+ and iPad Mini 2. The iPad's battery life is unchanged but the iPhone is abysmal. Never had a problem making it through the day but now it's at 25% by 4:00 (I start at 5:00AM though). Not to sound like I'm bashing Apple because the Priv struggles to make it to lunchtime but my late, lamented Idol 4S with Windows could easily go to 11:00PM with 40% remaining. Tighten up Apple, your aura of invincibility is vanishing into thin air.

Invincibility? Vanishing? Didn't that already happen back when Tim took over?

My iPad Pro is unaffected by this. Maybe this is just a bug for iPhones. But my PRIV lasts me well into the night, and my day starts around 6:30am. But this also lends to what I've said in the past: What Good are speedy OS updates if you constantly need more updates to fix what the last one broke?

@MG post 12. I'm afraid to update my Pro, and you're right...speedy updates that fix broke updates suck.

Exactly, darkk. By the way, looks like the Apple Defense Force's main deity worshipper, mxyzptlk, is trying to get your attention with his latest faux account.

It's funny watching you be darkk's lapdog.

It's funnier watching you prove that you're a pathetic multiple account having inbred troll.

To be fair, I get close to 100 emails per day and easily 50 phone calls. The Priv is constantly searching for a decent T-Mobile signal while the iPhone and Idol are branded phones with proper bands and provisioning. That being said, the update did nothing to help with the freezing issues with both iDevices. BTW, I'm loving mxy's new account. Flash, that's just rich. Meaning he'll be bounced again in a flash.

Lmao! I'm loving the fact that he really thinks he's fooling anyone, when in actuality, he's not. It's hilarious.
