Default you might need to wipe your iPhone (not COVID related)


If iOS 14 is causing battery drain, you might need to wipe your iPhone

Apple’s current fix for the iOS / watchOS issue is to completely reset your devices


https://www.theverge.com/2020/10/2/2...hone-watch-fix

Operating system updates can often suffer from unwanted glitches, and it seems that the latest iOS 14 and watchOS 7 releases from Apple are not immune. There have been complaints over the last few days that some people who have updated their devices have found — instead of increased efficiency — a wide range of issues, including missing fitness data, health apps that refuse to open, inaccurate reports of stored data, and increased battery drain on iPhones and Apple Watches. But while Apple has posted a way to resolve some of these issues, it’s not an easy fix.

When we checked Twitter, there were quite a few irritable messages from users whose batteries were losing power way too quickly. For example, one user tweeted, “The battery drain is unbelievable. From 90 percent to 3 percent in one hour.” Most people aren’t having battery issues nearly as dire, but this does show the level of problems some are encountering.

“If you haven’t done the iOS 14 update; DONT DO IT. The battery drain is unbelievable. From 90% to 3% in one hour.”

Apple has already issue one bug fix update (14.0.1), but none of these issues were part of that fix. Instead, Apple has suggested that if you’re experiencing “two or more” of the listed issues, you unpair your iPhone and your Apple Watch, back up to iCloud, erase all content from your iPhone, and then restore your iPhone and Apple Watch from the backups. Unfortunately, it looks like there is no way to restore missing workout route maps, environmental sound levels, or any other missing data — Apple suggests affected users follow its instructions “to prevent future data loss.”

Haven’t updated yet? You may want to hold off for a few more days until Apple — and other iPhone / Apple Watch users — signals the all clear.

Oh, my iPhone and iPad are definitely having battery drain issues after that update. I used to be at typically 90 to 95 percent battery after an 8 hour work day on iPhone. That was texts and maybe three 10-minute phone calls or so. Now it's more like 75-80%. I enabled widgets on the iPad and could almost see the battery draining in real time. Disabled them completely and it's better but still goes down way faster than it used to.

Is this another Apple tactic to get you to buy new?

They done this before with updates that suck down battery life. What they do to get you to get a new one is stop supporting updates on your current device and the last update you do put on your old device always seems to make it run so slow and terrible that you just can't take it anymore and get a new one. That was the main reason I finally upgraded from an iPhone 5S to an iPhone X.

I was worried that the X would be too big to comfortably carry in a front pocket but it fits OK. The 5S was a great size.

My iPhone was forced on me by the company, so I don't give much of a shit about what it does. In 2 months and 1 week they can shove up their asses for all I care.

I'm sure they make good stuff, BUT the cost and the restrictions on how you can use it. I could never own one just for the cost.
