iPhone owners flocked to Twitter and Reddit to express their dissatisfaction with the new iOS 15.4 update’s impact on their battery life.
Following the release of iOS 15.4 to the public last week, Apple also released iPad OS 15.4, watchOS 8.5, and macOS Monterey 12.3.
There are other new features included in the update, including Face ID with a mask, improved ProMotion compatibility, new emoji, and a new Siri voice, among others. However, it is possible that the update has caused battery drain concerns, since a rising number of individuals are reporting issues with battery life on their devices.
iPhone owners flocked to Twitter and Reddit to express their dissatisfaction with the new iOS 15.4 update’s impact on their battery life. Many people complained about battery depletion concerns with their iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max devices in a Reddit thread, which was later deleted. Another post received a mixed response, with some users reporting decreased battery life and others claiming that iOS 15.4 has actually improved battery performance. Some dissatisfied customers took to Twitter to express their issues, claiming that the energy drain is “totally insane.”
Observing the diverse replies, it appears that there is no consensus on the impact of iOS 15.4 on battery performance, according to the reports. It is now recommended that users wait up to two days after installing an update, with Apple stating that it is “common for your applications and functions to require adjustment.”

Check out our in-depth advice on how to extend the battery life of your iPhone running iOS 15 – iOS 15.4 by following the steps in this article. One of the most significant causes of battery depletion is that iOS works in the background to complete activities such as indexing immediately after an update is applied. However, if the problem remains even after several charging cycles, it is possible that there is a software error at the root of the problem.
