If your battery life has decreased significantly after the iOS 14 update, don’t worry, you aren’t the only one, and Apple has also posted a fix to this problem.
Major software updates contain several bugs and glitches, and it evident that the latest iOS 14 update is no different.
Several users over the past few days have complained that they have been facing several problems on the latest build of iOS 14 including missing data, apps crashes, inaccurate reports of stored data, and most importantly decreased battery life on iPhones and Apple Watches.
Apple has seen into the issue and came out saying that:
“After updating to iOS 14.0 and watchOS 7.0, you might notice:
- Your workout route maps are missing in the Fitness app on iPhone for previous GPS-enabled workouts from your Apple Watch.
- The Activity, Heart Rate, or other health-related apps fail to launch or load data on your Apple Watch.
- The Fitness app or Health app fail to launch or load data on your iPhone.
- The Health app or Fitness app is reporting an inaccurate amount of data storage on your iPhone.
- The Activity app is reporting an inaccurate amount of data storage on your Apple Watch.
- Your environmental sound levels data or headphone audio levels data from Apple Watch is missing in the Health app on iPhone.
- Increased battery drain on your iPhone or Apple Watch.“
However, Apple has posted a solution for the users facing more than two of the above-mentioned issues to back up their data to iCloud and then erase all content from your phone and then restore it. However, it is not a feasible option for the users missing data from their iPhones.
Recently, Apple has released iOS 14.0.1 update, but it doesn’t fix these bug as of yet. According to Apple, there doesn’t seem to be a way to restore your missing data, but you should backup all your data to iCloud to prevent any data loss in the near future.
iPhone users have been very vocal about the issues on Twitter, complaining about there battery dying in an hour or so. So if haven’t updated to iOS 14 as of yet, hold off before the problems on iOS 14 are fixed.
Let’s hope that Apple releases a simple fix to this problem soon for its users.
