Apple addresses battery drain issue by releasing 15.4.1 update

If you have been experiencing battery drain on your iPhone or iPad after getting the latest 15.4 update, you should be heading to your settings to get new updates for the two devices. Apple says they contain a fix for the battery draining problem.

When Apple released the iOS and iPadOS 15.4 updates, apparently, users started experiencing battery drain problems. Even though it doesn’t seem widespread, it is not difficult to find such complaints.

Apple initially said increased battery consumption was not unusual within 48 hours after installing an update. The official Apple Support account on Twitter said it was not unconnected to apps and features needing some time to adjust to the update. However, more than two weeks after the update rolled out, there are persisting complaints of battery levels going down faster than expected.

The 15.4 update contains many improvements, including the ability to use Face ID while wearing a mask. However, poor battery life may affect how people enjoy these new features.

However, the update contains more than a fix for the battery, so you should get it even if you haven’t experienced battery problems. As Apple said in its release notes, there are security updates that you should install on your phone.

Here are the features in iOS 15.4.1:
