Before you update to iOS 15.4, here's some major warning for you — wait! Apple's biggest updated within the iOS 15 generation has finally arrived and so far, it seems people are liking the star feature of this release — Face ID unlock with a mask on your face! Yes, you no longer need to take down your mask to unlock your iPhone, provided you won the new iPhone 12 or the iPhone 13. However, the update has also brought along a big issue some users are complaining about.

Some iPhone users who have already downloaded the update have complained of poor battery life. People are saying that the new iOS update has reduced the battery life of their iPhones by some margin. Th e issue is widespread across models such as the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and even retro models like the iPhone 7. Apple is yet respond to this concern officially.

New iOS update reducing iPhone battery life

Other than the battery life, some users have also reported other weird bugs after downloading the update. “someone help, did siri stop responding "hmm?" and "uh huh?" when you say "hey siri" due to the new update or is it just mine?” Said one user who already got the update.

“Is anyone experiencing audio problems with #ApplePodcasts on #airpodspro after updating to #iOS154," said another user on Twitter. Another user added, “WHY has the latest #iOSupdate reorganised my folders and dock!?”

“iOS 15.4 is killing the battery in my iPhone 13 Pro Max. I could go for days without charging, but it's down to half capacity by mid day,” said another user on Twitter.

Note that we have not witnessed any of these issues with the iOS 15.4 update on our iPhone SE 2022, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 Mini. Hence, it could be limited to a couple of users around the world. You also need to know that your iPhone often takes a few days optimise a new software update to your usage patterns, hence battery life can always vary.
