Update To The New iOS If You Want Even Worse Battery Drain, Apparently

This new iOS update is causing a scene. It's being blamed for phones sporadically turning off, even if they read as having 30 percent battery.

There you are, looking at funny memes, or reading an incredible TheLADbible article (not this one) and then bam. Slap to to face. You're phone's dead and you can't tell you ma you'll you over for dinner at six.

Let's just take a moment to reflect on the truth that this would never happen with a Nokia.

Moment over!

As someone who possesses an iPhone 5 which sees most of its life on charge, the fight for battery comes as a daily chore, so yet another reason for it to randomly drain is another nail in the coffin in this deplorable excuse of a year.

Ok, so that may have been hyperbole, but some people are frothing at the mouth over it and we feel a compulsion to get answers. Here are 13 pages of people angry about it.

After updating to iOS 10.1 or 10.1.1, some iPhone models are shutting down swiftly and when charged quickly shoot back up to around the 30 percent mark.

My phone has a great knack for dying the second I'm trying to order an Uber and I definitely don't have iOS 10.1.1 V6.8 AT-ST AT-ACT TCP. Sudden battery drainage is not a new phenomenon, though it has previously been blamed on 'buggy apps' and hardware issues. Apple has yet to make an excuse and blame us yet, though.

Time to get this bad boy out of the draw.
