iPhones with iOS 14.2 lose 50% of their battery in just 30 minutes
Apple has released a firmware update for iOS 14, but users have been complaining about a failure in battery performance that consumes quickly (iPhones with iOS 14.2 lose 50% of their battery in just 30 minutes), zeroing the charge completely in about an hour.
Again, Apple devices are the target of complaints from users, who are currently talking about a problem related to draining battery power. Apparently, the flaw started to appear after installing the iOS 14.2 update, which was released by the company in recent weeks.
Some customers reported that before the update their smartphones lost battery power between 20% to 40% overnight. Now, reports claim that the device is discharged by 50% in just 30 minutes of use. The glitch is also noticeable when the smartphone is placed to recharge the battery, which happens very quickly even using a slow charger. Apparently, the update generated a bug in the system that does not allow the smartphone to display the correct charge level, which is why it charges and discharges so fast.
According to user reports, the problem occurs more frequently on older iPhone models, such as the iPhone XS, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE. Owners of the 2018 iPad Pro with iPadOS 14.2 also reported problems with this issue.
Do not update your iPhone or iPad to version 14.2
After many tests carried out, Apple implemented an update of iOS 14.2 in order to bring a set of incremental changes to the system, and among the main ones, a Music Recognition feature was integrated by the Control Center that works in conjunction with Shazam , an application that was acquired by Apple a few years ago, in addition to the introduction of the “Now Playing” widget for the device’s control interface.
The features really are very interesting for the general public, but with this battery problem, the recommendation is that you do not update your smartphone, at least for now. Apple is expected to fix the bug in iOS 14.3 and iPadOS 14.3, which are expected to be released soon.
If you have not yet upgraded to iOS 14.2 or iPadOS 14.2, it is best to wait for this new firmware to be released.
