Although another monumental Apple launch has all but come and gone, much like many other system upgrades of the recent past, the new Apple iOS 11 release has produced quite a string of frustrating issues — as reported by its direct users. Aside from installation issues, slower speeds and unstable Wi-Fi connectivity, the most pressing matter to date would have to be its rapid battery drain. While iPhone enthusiasts expressed rabid excitement over the update’s many anticipated features, including enhanced security patches, most, if not all, are unwilling to sacrifice ample usage power for it.

According to Wandera, some issues contributing to the increased battery drainage, likely include Spotlight re-indexing, users wanting to try out all its shiny new features at once, as well as Animoji and iPhone X’s Face ID hardware. The background instruments powering the advanced facial recognition system could very well be the issue’s major factor.

For a comparative look, the chart below provides a snapshot of the battery drain differential between using iOS 10 and iOS 11 over a three-day window. The chart takes into account 50,000 moderate to heavy iPhone and iPad users.
