iPhone users claim iOS 15.4 update draining the battery: Apple officially released iOS 15.4 for iPhones this week, after months of anticipation.
37 new emoji, a ‘gender-neutral’ voice for Apple’s smart assistant, Siri, and the option to unlock your iPhone while wearing a face mask are all included in the update.
While many iPhone owners have happily downloaded the update, some have complained that it is reducing their battery life.
‘iOS 15.4 battery drain is simply outrageous,’ one Twitter user said. Why can’t Apple do things right the first time around? In less than 10 minutes, I was down 5%.’

‘SOS Apple,’ one user wrote with a snapshot of how their battery has fast decreased following installing the update. ‘The battery is depleting very quickly.’
‘My battery dropped so fast once I upgraded my ios to 15.4,’ one user wrote.
Thankfully, according to ZDNet, battery troubles are unlikely to persist.
‘Installing a new OS on an iPhone prompts a lot of activity to go on in the background, from indexing to recalibrating the battery, and this may go on for hours or even days,’ said Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, a researcher at ZDNet.
‘Not only does this use energy, but the battery recalculation might make it appear as though the battery is degrading faster than it actually is.
‘Add to that the dual element of a slew of app upgrades after a new release, as well as a slew of new features that might place a strain on an older phone.’
If you’re concerned about the health of your iPhone battery and it’s been a few days after you upgraded to iOS 15.4, Mr. Kingsley-Hughes recommends inspecting it.
When will it be fix & How to fix it?
‘If the notification says it’s okay for Peak Performance Capability when you go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, then it’s either regular things or a glitch,’ he said.
According to the tech journal, the iPhone will restore battery stability after a few days following the upgrade.
An iPhone begins to execute and update several programs in the background when new software is installed. The battery will index and recalibrate as a result of this.
While it gives the idea of a dwindling battery, it is not truly dwindling.
Of course, this does not apply to older phones with a battery that isn’t in pristine or near-perfect condition.
Users may check the status of their batteries by navigating to Settings, searching for “Battery,” and selecting Battery Health.
It’ll be a pity if you don’t upgrade your iPhone to iOS 15.4.
