A week after Apple released its latest iOS update, more and more complaints about the iPhone are starting to appear. The battery in particular is a disappointment to many users.
Since the iOS 16.4 update last week, do you feel like your iPhone is draining faster? Do not be afraid! You are definitely not alone, and Apple is reportedly working on a fix.
iPhone blanks a little faster thanks to iOS 16.4
While last year’s iOS 16 update greatly improved iPhone battery life, last week’s iOS 16.4 update appears to do the opposite. Users have been complaining about low battery life since last week, but now we also have the numbers to actually check.
YouTube user iAppleBytes took the test after complaints and came to a heartbreaking conclusion in his latest video. The new iOS 16.4 update ensures that iPhone 13, 12, 11, XR, and 8 battery lasts less than before.
The magnitude of the update impact varies per device, but the truth is that all models are affected. For example, the iPhone 12 has a reduced battery life of about 12%, while the iPhone 13 has a reduced battery life of 11%.
Last week, I myself, with my iPhone 14 Pro, noticed some difference. Although, in my opinion, the effect is not as great as with the 2022 and 2021 models.
Annoying, but an update is still necessary
In such cases, we advise users who have not yet installed the new update to postpone the release of the new software for a while. But unfortunately, the latest iPhone update is too important to give this advice.
There are several security vulnerabilities that have been resolved with this update. These are, for example, in services like iCloud, the Calendar app, or even the Neural Engine. Malicious people can easily obtain your data this way so it is really worth installing the update.
It may not sound perfect, but chances are Apple is (in retrospect) working on a fix. So, just get the update and enjoy reduced battery life for a while. This is less serious than the iOS 16.3.1 vulnerabilities.

Always those concerns. I’m sick of all the malheur updates and only update after a few months. He had no intrusion or penetration.
