The new iOS will ruin your battery

Users complain that the new iPhone software drains the battery much faster than it should.

Immediately after the iPhone SE 2022 premiere, which attracted a lot of attention, Apple activated new system updates for iOS, iPad, iPod, and Apple Watch devices.

For iPhone, iOS 15.4 arrived, whose biggest news was the ability to scan faces and unlock devices even when the user wears a mask and glasses.

Although the new Face ID works exclusively on iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series phones and although corona measures are easing around the world, users of all supported iPhone models, not only the latest ones, are complaining that the update drains their battery much faster than before iOS 15.4.

For example, the iPhone 13 Pro Max battery with iOS 15.4 update is discharged after half a day for some users, and the iPhone 11 battery user drops below 20 percent in less than 24 hours with only two hours of screen on.

According to unconfirmed reports, ie. According to some developers from popular developer sites, the problem is the 120 Hz ProMotion function on the screen, although some of the phones that have this problem do not even have the mentioned option. 

There are many sources on the Internet about the problems and the same number of potential culprits, but Apple has neither confirmed nor explained what it is about, but - there are more and more users with compromised battery autonomy.

In addition to the problems with the battery, iOS 15.4 brought 30 crucial patches for systems and applications, but also over 100 new emoticons, among other things, so there are plenty of reasons to install a new system.

The decision is up to you, and the question is when Apple will solve this problem, and it will solve it for sure!

The 120 hertz will still not be regularly used in the iPhone 14.

Although the iPhone 12 and 13 already had distinct variations between the base and Pro models, Apple may be able to influence this point more with the iPhone 14 family.

At the moment, we are discussing rumors, which are mixed with various potential reasons for this, the most prominent of which are those pointing to a movement to give more weight to the Pro surname of their smartphones, and those pointing to the fact that the unusual market situation for integrated and integrated components could have performed a trick on him when it came to defining the specifications of his new generation.

Be it for one reason or another, and, of course, awaiting confirmation of what the rumors say, it appears that people considering waiting until September to get an iPhone 14 will see more differences than ever before between the base versions, which we hope will be the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, with a larger screen, and the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, in line with the models that we have already seen in the current generation and the previous one.

There has also been speculation for some time that only the Pro models of the 14 family will be rid of the famous notch that has followed the iPhone since version X. Yes, a generation later, in the iPhone 15 family, this element could be dropped in all models, however, others argue that the base versions would have to wait until the next generation, the iPhone 16, to see this change.

And now, to these distinctions, another is added, which is already present in the iPhone 13 family but is projected to vanish in the next generation. It does not appear that this will be the case; according to Gizchina, the 120-hertz refresh rate of the screen will remain a feature limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. With 60 hertz, the simplest versions, the 14 and 14 Max should last at least another year.

We can already see entry-level smartphones with adaptive refresh rates of up to 90 or even 120 hertz, but others speculate that Cupertino will continue to regard this as a professional feature, and hence it will only be available in devices with the suffix Pro.

It is still extremely early, there are still months until the iPhone 14 is released, and these are all rumors at the present. As the Anglo-Saxons frequently say, take this with a grain of salt.
