iPhone iOS 16 Update – Poor Battery Life

The brand new iOS 16 update is finally here and it’s packed with really cool features.

But Apple fans are already moaning on TikTok – one thing poster said “iOS 16 eats up my battery life for a snack”.

The clip has received over 110,000 likes, so the poster is clearly not alone.

You’re not wrong either: Your iPhone’s battery life might actually be worse after the iOS 16 update — but only temporarily.

In a previous response to complaints about battery life from iOS updates, Apple said, “It’s normal for your apps and features to need adjustments up to 48 hours after an update.”

Your phone’s files and apps are organized into indexes, making all your phone’s information organized and most importantly, quickly accessible.

When a major software update happens, many of the codes and systems that make up your phone are changed significantly.

This means your iPhone will have to reorganize and reindex the apps and data on your phone to make it more searchable.

This puts a heavy load on your iPhone’s processor, which inevitably puts extra strain on your battery.

The good news is that this process only takes about 24 to 48 hours, so your battery life should be back to normal two days after the iOS 16 update.

Of course, there are other reasons why your battery life might be struggling.

When iOS 16 lands, many developers suddenly start updating their apps to support the new system and new features.

Because of this, you’ve probably seen many more app updates hitting your app store lately.

If you have automatic app updates turned on, those updates will run in the background throughout the day.

This creates additional processor load and requires an internet connection, both of which will drain your battery faster.

After all, major iPhone updates generally get us to use our phones a little bit more.

Enthusiastic users try new features in a hurry and inevitably spend more time on their mobile phones every day.

This also contributes to the battery life of your phone.

So ignore the conspiracy theorists: Apple doesn’t ruin your iPhone experience to make you upgrade to newer models.

Your battery life will almost certainly improve over the next few days.

How to Fix iOS 16 iPhone Poor Battery Life

The simplest solution is just to wait.

Make sure to update your apps as soon as possible, then wait for normal order to resume.

It usually only takes a few days after installing a new iOS for your iPhone to regain normal battery life.

If it’s a very painful problem, here are some tricks to improve iPhone battery life…

Activate the energy saving mode

Power saving mode turns off some power-hungry features on your phone.

Unfortunately, this can mean that some apps, tools, and features on your phone will no longer work — at least temporarily.

“When Battery Saver is on, your iPhone lasts longer before you need to charge it, but some features may take longer to update or complete,” Apple explains.

“Also, some tasks may not work until you disable sleep mode or charge your iPhone to 80% or more.”

To turn on battery saver mode, go to Settings > Battery and toggle the switch at the top.

Stop constantly “quitting” your apps.

Constantly closing iPhone apps is a waste of time – and could even damage your phone.

Apple says you shouldn’t bother unless an app is frozen.

“When you see your recent apps, the apps aren’t open, but they’re on standby to help you navigate and multitask,” Apple explained.

Part of the problem is that it’s tempting to think apps are running in your “carousel.”

But they’re actually frozen by your iPhone, so they don’t consume resources while you’re doing other things.

Fully restarting apps after swiping consumes more battery life.

The more you stress your battery, the faster it will degrade over time.

And this app will take longer to restart.
