Some older Apple iPhone models are experiencing rapid battery draining after iOS 11.4 update

Apple iPhone users are up in arms over the way their batteries have been draining rapidly ever since they installed iOS 11.4 on their devices. More than 1,300 comments have been posted on the Apple Communities forum page about this issue. One iPhone 6 user says that since the update, his battery has been draining even when he doesn't use the device. His all-day battery life has been reduced to just a half-day...

"Well, at least the older phones got an update. Who cares if it kills the device. The numbers in the changelog changed, and that's all that matters." - Apple Lover

productive and mature comments are obviously what you're incapable of.

Well, I guess that's what they mean when they say "you can't handle the truth".

of course you don't know that am actually both an iOS and Android user and that am only defending iOS here from an immature comment. nice try tho

Of course, the OS you claim to use or whatever personal testimonial you want to deliver is irrelevant to any point you want to make. The overused and unprovable "I like ios and Android" claim which is used commonly adds nothing to your credibility. Your stupid opinion on what is and what isn't "mature" is just that; another stupid opinion. This is especially true considering there are comments about "grenades" below and somehow you haven't felt compelled to address the maturity of that. So heres a thought, address the facts. If you can't address the facts of the comment, then just shut up.

Lol pull that cock out your ass...you had to write an essay to explain why he made you upset.

The irony when you attack me instead of defending your stance as to why you act so immaturely.

My point was made. You're the one who never addressed it and went on to some side show.

And maybe you should be the one who should shut up, this article is about Apple and not Android, so only comment when it actually is about Android. I'm a user of both so who the f**k are you to tell me to shut up

You're an Apple fanboy and always have been. You're constantly attacking Android in every article i see you. I haven't seen you defend Android even once, so stop lying and acting like you're a neutral 3rd party. You're not even remotely neutral.

Since when did you become the user counter here? plus am not even remotely active here cause I actually have a life, something you don't. And I will comment what I don't like about Android and iOS whenever and wherever I possibly can so shove Tim Cook's saggy sausage up your mouth.

Stop trying to act like you're neutral, it's a pathetic lie. You're literally constantly attacking Android in every article i see you, you're not even remotely neutral. It also seems like a hit a sore spot judging from your reacting, literally telling me to shove something "up my mouth", whatever that means. If i have to shove Tim Cook's anything up my mouth, then i would need to remove it from your mouth first.

It's what most users on this site are incapable of. Negative article about Apple - Comments full of Android users Positive article about Apple - Comments full of butt hurt Android users accusing PhoneArena to be iPhoneArena. Positive article about Samsung or Android - Comments empty Negative article about Samsung or Android - Comments empty Go figure...

The comments from both parties are equal on the both sides. I think number of butthurt Apple users are even more here.

Maybe not. But factual comments, yes.

You know that Apple will fix the problem soon. But here you have a short term opportunity to throw your hate. How clever!

Considering the battery drain problem went on for years after several denials and was only fixed once Apple was exposed; no, I don't know that Apple will fix the problem.

You may be right, but why do you care, if you're not using Apple devices?

If you're not me, why do you care about what I care about?

We have a saying in our country: only very dumb people answer a question with another question. Are you dumb, or do you have an answer to my initial question?

I agree with your post to some sort..

How many batteries issues can the iPhones have? There might be a single occurency from companies, because s**t happens, but having battery issues over and over and over again? That shouldn't happen.

It's the easiest way to force upgrades on unsuspecting and uninformed users. After that whole battery fiasco, any battery issue may as well be hard coded into iOS updates since we know full well what Apple is ethically capable of now.

And how many are experiencing these issues exactly? I have been using iPhone since 3GS yet I have never been effected by one of these extreme battery draining bugs so far. As a developer myself I know there will always be bugs no matter how well you test such complex code and with such huge amount of people using these models (especially iPhone 6) even some edge cases will effect many people. But it’s not like they do not exist on other phones, it’s a quite common topic on the tech forums i visit, regardless of manufaturer.

It'll get patched in a couple a days. Apple got good history patching bugs so no worries.

But a company that "takes its time and gets it right" in order to produce devices that "just work" and are "buttery smooth" and "bug free" should not have a good history of patching bugs. Maybe no worries, but that means that a lot of people have been lying for a lot of years.

Only diehard Apple trolls would say that. Every software in the world is prone to bugs but it's up to the software maker to fix said bugs. Apple promised to focus on optimizing the software on iOS 12 so only time will tell if it's true.

That's what they've been saying since iPhone 3GS. It just works or it doesn't.
