After reports surfaced that there was a major multitasking issue with iOS 13.2, Apple rapidly rolled out a fix addressing it in iOS 13.2.2. However, as is the story with every iOS 13 release — when Apple fixes one issue, another one pops up. This time around, a new bug has surfaced and it is inconveniencing iPhone users across the globe.
A few hours after updating the iPhones to iOS 13.2.2, reports are suggesting that battery life has taken a drastic hit where people are claiming that “the battery life has gone from good to appalling.”
As per a report by ZDNet, “Bottom line, battery life has gone from great to terrible. The initial iOS 13 release wasn't too bad, but the iOS 13.1.2 release had a serious battery bug. While this bug was subsequently fixed, this latest release seems to bring back this bug. Battery life is now so bad that I can watch my battery life ticking down while I'm browsing the web, composing an email, or using Twitter.”
The report adds that background battery life, when the device is locked and not in use, the battery isn’t really bad. The report states that on an iPad running iPadOS 13.2.2, battery life is quite bad as well in comparison with releases prior to iPadOS 13.1.2.
The issue doesn’t appear to be app-specific; instead, it appears to be a widespread OS problem.
People on twitter are also complaining and here are some of the tweets.
