The iOS 10.3.2 update seems to fix bugs, but is causing faster battery drain.
(CCM) — Apple has finally released the iOS 10.3.2 update for iPhone and iPad devices. The update brings fixes for bugs and also improves security. To install the update, the device should be fully charged and have a stable WiFi connection. To install the update manually, go to Settings > General > Software Update.
Just after the update release, complaints about battery drain started pouring in. A user named Kamlesh Parmar reported that his iPhone and iPad are losing 10% to 20% within ten minutes of fully charging. Many users have been complaining about similar issues on the official Apple Support Community website.
Interestingly, not all users who have installed the update are facing the battery drain issue. A report from Forbes says that the issue is mainly surfacing on iPhones, as the forums show users complaining primarily about iPhones. A Twitter user also conducted a poll on the issue, wherein 78% of the 32 participants claimed to have been impacted by the battery drain bug tied to the iOS 10.3.2 update. However, there seems to be no way to know if the problem is widespread or limited to a few units only.
For iPhone users, it is highly advisable to make sure that they install the update after Apple resolves the issue. Otherwise, they may have to carry around a power bank to keep their iPhones alive.
