Apply has just released the public beta of iOS 16 with a slew of new features and updates after much delay. Many users jumped right in to get the chance to get the beta version of iOS 16. And you may also have the beta installed, I mean who doesn’t. Let me ask you something, are you having a battery drain problem? I’m sure it’s you who led you here to this post.

Is iOS 16 Draining Your Battery?

For the early birds, you may experience a battery drain issue after installing the beta. It can be quite annoying because your battery doesn’t last long enough. But, if you are concerned that this problem is only limited to your device, I can assure you that all users who recently downloaded iOS 16 are experiencing battery drain issues. Before we jump to a conclusion, keep in mind that Apple has this problem with every other software update and iOS 16 is no exception. Apple is consistent in these issues and yet iOS 16 can’t break that cycle. Let’s hope that when it is officially released it won’t have a battery problem.

Why does iOS 16 have a battery drain issue?

According to Apple’s support team, rapid battery drain is quite common after a major iOS upgrade. This is because programs and services undergo background optimizations and updates, which can quickly drain the battery. It can take up to 48 hours for things to settle down. So if it hasn’t been 48 hours since you installed iOS 16 beta on your iPhone, the Apple team recommends that you do nothing. Just wait and watch. It will be resolved automatically. After the appropriate time limit has passed, you can apply the adjustments Apple outlined to achieve the best battery life for which Apple products are known.

Causes of rapid battery drain:

There could be many reasons for your battery draining problem. In most situations, the battery drains in the background due to a software glitch. Beta builds are less reliable than final releases. These are prone to bugs. If users report bugs, Apple will fix them in the next release, with the final launch being the most refined.

Aside from the software reason, the battery draining issue could possibly be caused by a bad battery health. Background optimizations are another cause of rapid battery drain. The program optimizes all applications on your phone after each software upgrade. The battery usage for additional operating tasks is also higher than usual.

Tips and tricks to extend battery life:

  • Check which app is using the most battery power and if it doesn’t help you, uninstall or offload that app.
  • Set the brightness of your iPhone’s screen to automatic or dim it very low.
  • Getting up to wake up: Power off.
  • Background app refresh: Disable.
  • Location Services: Disable.
  • Energy saving mode: turn on.
  • Reduce movement: enable.
  • Video Autoplay (Safari): Disable.
  • App tracking: Disable.
  • Hold your iPhone face down.
  • Use stationary wallpaper, avoid moving wallpaper.
  • Use WiFi instead of data.
  • Vibration and haptics: turn off.
  • Reset your iPhone.
  • Restart your iPhone every now and then.
