The iOS 10.3 was released at the end of last month and this turned out to be a major release. The update boasted an array of nifty features along with some necessary security enhancements.
The update came with the Find My AirPods feature as well as the ability to add a podcast widget to your Control Center. There is also an addition of an Apple ID profile located in your Settings.
That’s not all – Apple also improved some CarPlay features by making some tweaks to its app-switching capabilities. This helps users quickly switch between media, messaging and travel apps without needing to return to the Home screen.
On top of that, the Music app has also added an Up Next feature where users can see what music is on queue as well as access album view via the song screen.
The iOS 10.3 sure sounds like an amazing upgrade but it appears that the app has been drastically reducing the performance capabilities of iPhones such as the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 6s.
A Reddit thread revealed that many users have been experiencing a tremendous battery drain on the latest operating system despite no changes in their usage.
The situation seems to occur even on a newly purchased iPhone 7. Some folks claim that upgrading to the iOS 10.3.1 fixed the problem for them but, unfortunately for most, the problem still persisted.
If you have been experiencing a similar situation, did upgrading to iOS 10.3.1 fix the frustrating battery issue for you?
