iOS 7 Users Suffer Battery-Drain Issues

Sep 23 2013, 5:59pm CDT | by

iOS 7 may come with a new design and many great new features, but users are finding that their battery power runs out much faster. This has some very disappointed with the new OS.

Several tweets on Twitter from iOS upgraders report significant battery draining combined with longer charging times. This would not be the first time that an Apple upgrade caused battery problems, as the same thing occurred back in 2011, with an IOS 5 update.

When iOS 7 was first released, there was an overwhelming response from Apple fans as they eagerly went to download the new version. The amazing response rate even knocked out internet service at Ohio University. Unfortunately, the shock of the new OS design came coupled with a disappointing battery drain.

Less battery time is not something device users were looking forward to. Many of them desired longer battery time, not shorter. However, the drain does not happen to every Apple device user who upgraded to iOS 7. Reasons for this difference have not been provided.

Some have found the solution to the dilemma by using the Background App Refresh feature, which can be found in the General section of Settings. Apple has concurred that turning this feature off for certain apps can preserve battery life. Some of the apps that use this feature include The Weather Channel app, Google Maps, Yahoo’s weather app, and the Stocks app.

Other methods for preserving battery life include disabling notifications, turning off location apps, checking email manually instead of using push email, getting software updates, turning off Wi-Fi, lowering screen brightness, and using a battery case.

It is unclear yet how soon, or if, Apple will take measures to resolve this issue for the iOS 7 users experiencing it. The issue has some hesitating to upgrade for fear of the added inconveniences having a shorter battery life might cause.
