After hundreds of complaints on Twitter about the new iOS 15.4 update, Apple has finally admitted that the new iPhone software drains your battery quicker than before but there is a way to fix it.

iPhone users have been complaining for days of “ridiculous” battery drain, with one person saying that their phone is going down by 5% in less than 10 minutes ever since the latest system software update was installed.
Some have also complained about storage space being reduced and that their iPhones are getting hot.
“My iPhone 13 is so hot and 1 hour from 100% drain faster to 40%,” wrote one iPhone user.
“iPhone 11 here and the same thing. The battery lasted all day and now it makes it to about noon,” replied another.
In a Twitter post, Apple recognized it is a common problem with new updates and said “It’s normal for your apps and features to need to adjust up to 48 hours after an update.”

That means that if you just wait a couple of days, your apps should get used to the new software and battery life should improve again.
However, some iPhone users have complained of continuing issues days after the update.
“It’s been more than 48 hours, my [screen on time] is around 6 hours. I own iPhone 13 Pro Max.”
Coinciding with the release of the new budget-friendly 5G iPhone SE, iOS 15.4 adds new emoji, slight design changes, Universal Control (which allows Macs and iPads to be used together with the same mouse and keyboard), and much more.
Although it might seem a bit late to the game, perhaps one of the standout features of the new iOS is the ability to use FaceID while wearing a facemask.
What’s more, iOS 15.4 adds an extra US voice to Siri that is neither male nor female sounding. Called ‘Quinn’ internally, Apple said that the voice was recorded by a “member of the LGBTQ+ community.”
