Apple fixes iOS 15.4 battery drain bug with new update

In a recent software update, Apple rolled out iOS 15.4.1 to fix the bug that has been draining iPhone batteries running on its latest OS.

iPhone users have been complaining that their battery life suffered a huge blow after they updated their devices to the new iOS 15.4, and one Twitter user estimated it to be 10-15% less.

A scroll through the replies shows that Ramal above was not alone. Although, before the fix, Apple Support Twitter account had told users that their devices and apps might need up to 48 hours to adjust to a new OS, likely insinuating that battery drain could be normal.

After the problem persisted when the 48-hour mark elapsed, the phone maker decided to do something about it. We found no detail on what Apple really did to fix the battery drain issue, and we’ll have to wait for users’ to start talking about their experiences.

However, as is regular, iOS 51.4.1 fixes an ‘out-of-bounds write issue’ and ‘improved bounds checking.’ Apple devices that are compatible with the new update include all iPhone 6s and later. The company also rolled out the iPadOS 15.4.1 on the same day for iPad Pro (all models), iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, iPad mini 4 and later, and iPod touch (7th generation) devices.
