For a few days now, Apple has released the iOS 15.4 update for all supported iPhone models. With this update, users get more features like 37 new emojis, better DualSense controller support, and can now install updates with mobile data.

Also noteworthy is the fact that with this update, Apple’s Face ID performs facial recognition to unlock the terminal, even if the user’s face is partially covered by a mask.

But some users reported on the social network Twitter that the update brings with it a less positive point. According to reports, the iOS 15.4 update is affecting the battery of the models, reducing their autonomy.

One of the reports was that the user had lost 80% of the battery, using only the Safari, YouTube, Instagram and Uber applications. Another user said that his iPhone stopped charging at 95 or 97% battery and after turning it off it already registered a fully charged battery, but that it disappeared very quickly.

The iOS update usually affects autonomy, but it is usually a temporary problem

Apple may release a patch to address the decrease in autonomy caused by the new update

Some experts advance that the rapid battery depletion may be due to the activation of the 120 Hz refresh rate on the screen, in the case of the iPhone 13 Pro. Previously, applications such as Twitter or Instagram were limited to 60 Hz, which consumes much less energy.

But it seems iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 users are also having the same issue and 120Hz refresh rate does not come up here as it is not available.

On the other hand, it is common for an iOS update to affect the autonomy of Apple terminals, since it activates various tasks in the background, such as battery calibration. But after a few days, the situation usually normalizes and the battery returns to its “rhythm”. It should also be added that, by tradition, Apple is also very quick to release patches that fix bugs.
