Apple iOS 10.1.1 Update: iPhone battery, earpod and overheating glitches

By on

Apple iPhone owners are complaining about the recent iOS 10.1.1 update release. The recent update has allegedly come with a couple of bugs, which has left users outraged.


The recent iOS update by Apple has seen a battery-draining phenomenon on the company’s flagship phones. A number of iPhone 6 and 6s users have claimed that the iOs 10.1.1 update has messed up the phone’s battery charging and usability, according to Forbes.

iPhone batteries are draining fast since the update and the phone shuts down once the charge reaches 30 percent. Another characteristic observed is that the phone charge jumps to 30 percent after it has been connected to the charger or is rebooted.

“When I unplug it right away, it still shows 30 percent and runs like nothing happened for a good few hours. So it goes from zero charge to 30 percent in the time it takes to reboot? Strange.” An user wrote, as reported by The Sun.

Apple is yet to release an official count on the number of users experiencing the issue. The Cupertino-based company is yet to comment on the situation as well.

Many users are also complaining that the iOS 10.1.1 update is causing their iPhones to overheat. This causes the battery to drain in less than an hour.

“No audio until I restart or if in a call after pressing the speaker button. I have gone a few times to the Apple Store and they have not been able to help.” A user reported.

The user added that restarting the iPhone fixes the issue temporarily. However, a permanent solution is yet to be found even after erasing the entire device.

It is expected that Apple will fix these glitches once they release their next update. iOS 10.2 is expected to be released during the first half of December.
