Several frustrated users have taken to X (formerly Twitter) to discuss the issue, with one claiming they’re now having to charge their iPhone multiple times throughout the day.

‘Since I updated my iPhone SE 2 iOS 17.2 the battery has been draining real fast… It’s 16:37 now… And I have already plugged in my iPhone 2 times,’ they wrote. 

Here’s what to do if you’ve updated your iPhone to iOS 17.2 and have noticed problems with your battery.

Apple has released a new update called iOS 17.2 this week

 

iOS 17.2 was released earlier this week, and is available now for iPhone XS and later, iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2nd generation and later, iPad Pro 10.5-inch, iPad Pro 11-inch 1st generation and later, iPad Air 3rd generation and later, iPad 6th generation and later, and iPad mini 5th generation and later. 

The update introduces a brand-new tool called Journal, which Apple describes as a ‘way to reflect on life’s moments and preserve your memories.’

What’s more, the release includes urgent bug fixes and security updates for your iPhone.

Several excited iPhone users rushed to download it, but it seems that many are now regretting their decision. 

‘iOS 17.2 is killing my battery I swear,’ one user tweeted. 

Another added: ‘IOS 17.2 draining battery a lot man.’

And one vented: ‘Updated to ios 17.2 and its drained my battery so fast. just use it for 10 minutes to change my contact picture, and it drain from 99 to 91 so fast.’

Thankfully, it’s unlikely that the battery issues are here to stay.

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, a researcher at ZDNet, explained: ‘Installing a new OS on an iPhone triggers a lot of stuff to go on in the background, from indexing to recalibrating the battery, and this can go on for hours or even days.

‘Not only does this consume power, but the battery recalibration can give the impression that the battery is draining more rapidly when in fact it isn’t.

‘Add to this the dual factor of a lot of app updates happening following a new release, combined with a lot of new features available that may put more drain on an older handset.’ 

If you’re worried about your iPhone battery and it’s been a few days since you updated to iOS 17.2, Mr Kingsley-Hughes advises checking your battery health.

He added: ‘If you go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health and the message is that it is good for Peak Performance Capability, then it’s either just the normal stuff going on, or a bug.’ 

If you can brave the potential battery issues, the iOS 17.2 update includes several exciting new features. 

Journal

Journal is a brand-new app where users can capture and write about moments and special events in their lives.

Users can choose to upload written entries, as well as photos, videos, audio recordings or locations.

‘And we’re making it possible for other journaling apps to offer the same personalised suggestions while maintaining the highest level of privacy.’

It was one of the most talked-about new features in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, and now the Action Button is getting an exciting update.

Users can now set the button up to quickly translate phrases during a conversation with someone in another language.

Camera

The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are also receiving an upgrade to the camera system.

The Weather app now shows precipitation amounts, while new widgets let you choose from next-hour precipitation, daily forecast, sunrise and sunset times, and current conditions such as Air Quality, Feels Like and wind speed.

A new interactive moon calendar also lets you see which phase of the moon we’re in for any day for the next month.

Improvements and bug fixes

Aside from the new features, the update also has several improvements and bug fixes.

AirDrop has been improved, allowing you to share boarding passes, cinema tickets and other eligible passes by bringing two iPhones together.
