Since Apple launched its eagerly anticipated iOS 17 update last night, millions of eager iPhone users have rushed to download it.
However, it seems that many are regretting their decision already, amid claims that the latest update is draining their battery life.
Complaints have taken X (formerly Twitter) by storm over the past 24 hours, as users allege that the latest iOS 17 release has ruined their device’s battery.
One user wrote: ‘Is iOS 17 killing anyone else’s battery,’ as another added: ‘Battery life has been TERRIBLE so far on iOS 17.’
Others claimed their charge dropped ‘sharply’ following the update, while another admitted they were too anxious to download it at all.
‘Scared of upgrading to iOS 17 due to the fear of what might become of my battery,’ they wrote.
iOS 17 was released just yesterday as Apple sought to bring major changes to messaging and FaceTime on iPhones.
The update includes several exciting new features, including customisable contact posters, Live Voicemails, and the ability to share your contact details simply by touching your iPhone to another.
However, many users claim that the update is also causing havoc for their iPhone’s battery life.
‘The iPhone’s battery life drops sharply after upgrading to iOS 17,’ one person wrote on X.
Another added: ‘@AppleSupport @Apple battery draining tremendously after upgrading to iOS 17.’
One even claimed their device was overheating due to the update, writing: ‘iOS 17 overheating my phone big time… never seen it this slow.’
Although Apple is yet to comment on these issues, it is actually quite normal to experience battery drain in the aftermath of power-intensive updates.
