Here we go again with yet another iOS 16 update and more iPhone owners complaining of battery issues.
The iOS 16.6 update (there’s also an iOS 15.7.8 for iPhones running the older version, so make sure if you’re running an older device to check that out) contained a bunch of security fixes for vulnerabilities that put your data at risk.
But what should you do if you’re finding that it is degrading your battery life?
I’ve been keeping an eye on social media and Apple’s support forums, and opinions are, as always, mixed. Some say this update is a big improvement and that it fixes the overheating issue found in iOS 16.5 (I would say that I’ve definitely seen an improvement here).
Others say it’s abysmal, claiming not only that they are getting less battery runtime, but also that their battery health plummeted. If you’re curious — or concerned — about battery health, I suggest reading about what Apple doesn’t want you to know about your iPhone’s battery.
If you’re experiencing better battery life, good for you. You can stop reading here and get on with your day. However, if you are one of those people having battery issues, I have some tips and tricks to help you make it through the day.
