Apple has responded to complaints that the latest iPhone update drains the battery.
A number of customers have claimed that their phones' capabilities have diminished after installing the iOS 15.4 upgrade.
This is nothing new, though, similar issues were also experienced following the rollout of the iOS 14.6, so it's not a surprise for a lot of people.
Many customers have shared their grievances to social media, claiming they have noticed a stark drop in their battery life, which they have put down to the update.
One person said: "iOS 15.4 battery drain is absolutely ridiculous. why can't @Apple @AppleSupport ever get releases right the first time down 5 percent in less than 10 minutes."
Replying to the post, another said: "Same issue here my iphone 13 so hot and 1 hour from 100 percent drain faster to 40 percent ... please fixsed ok.
"And please before you release the new ios RC be nice you try before send to us (user). thanks you and I waiting for the fast solution."
"Full night of charging and only 50 percent of battery. Gone by noon. I was giving praise about my battery in the beta versions of iOS15.4," put a third.
While another added: "Battery life on iOS 15.4 is really bad.
"After 24 hours - 80 percent, but active screen no more then two hours and I using only Safari, YouTube, Instagram, Uber."
The tech giant has now assured them that there's nothing to worry about and that devices take a bit of time to adjust.

Replying to the customer on Twitter, Apple said: Thanks for reaching out! We'll be happy to help.
"It's normal for your apps and features to need to adjust up to 48 hours after an update.

Not everyone is having such a bad time of it, though.
Some have said they have actually noticed an improvement in their battery life since updating.
Praising the update, one user said: "Battery Life seems to have improved after iOS 15.4 update . My SOT shows an improvement."
