AppleInsider reports today on the fact that for some users, iOS 11 is still causing battery-life issues with their devices. As AppleInsider notes, despite three sub-point updates, the Apple support forums are still full of complaints about iOS 11 in terms of sluggishness, crashing, and battery life. Normally you’d expected much of this to have died down by now, with most app developers having had ample time to fix any problems with their apps that might have been causing such issues.
As AppleInsider notes, there is not a specific overall problem being reported by users, or a particular model of phone that is being more affected than the others, although, generally speaking, the newest iPhone 8 models are not affected.
AppleInsider gives an example of one of their staffers who reported rapid battery drain on his iPhone SE, but says that the issue appears to have been fixed on that particular phone after installing the iOS 11.1 beta. Interestingly, though, another iPhone SE in the same household has not had any problems at all with battery drain, neither have two iPad Airs, two iPhone 7 Plus models, and an iPhone 6s in the same home.
Likewise another AppleInsider editor is reporting a major impact on battery life and other performance problems for their first-gen iPad Pro.
Summing up AppleInsider’s report, it does seem like there is still an issue with iOS 11 that is affecting some users’ devices, but hopefully this will be addressed and fixed in future updates.
