iOS 14 battery drain issue requires users to reset iPhone

Published

on

Apple has admitted via a support document on its website that provides a solution to poor battery performance on iPhones after the latest iOS 14 update. Several users were experiencing battery drain problems on their devices after upgrading to iOS 14 which has now been acknowledged by the Cupertino giant. The support document does have a solution to this problem, however, it does not involve making changes in the settings or by turning off or on any particular feature. Instead, Apple wants you to take a backup of your iPhone running iOS 14, wipe it clean (reset), and then set up the phone all over again.

Apple highlighted seven issues, including missing or inaccurate data in health apps, fitness or health apps not loading, and increased battery drain on iPhone or Apple Watch. The Cupertino-based firm said users facing two or more of these issues should try the steps mentioned to fix them. Users with iPhone must note that the process involves a system reset.

Apple asked users to unpair Apple watch from iPhone. To do so, open the Watch app, tap the My Watch Tab, then All Watches. Click on the info button next to the watch to unpair. Before erasing all content and settings, iPhone creates a new backup of Apple Watch, which can be used to restore it later.

Users should verify iCloud settings and create a backup. They must ensure that the device has enough cloud storage. To confirm that Health information is backed up, tap the profile picture option in the upper-right area in the Health app. At the bottom of the screen, they can verify when the data was last backed up. If the time shown isn’t recent, wait for the backup to finish and check again.

After finishing the backing up, erase all content and settings from the iPhone from the settings app by tapping on erase all content and settings. Now, restore iPhone and Apple Watch from iCloud backup. Once restored, open the Watch app on the iPhone and start pairing. Tap on restore from backup and choose the most recent backup to restore.

Apple said the steps will also help to prevent ‘future data loss’.

iOS 14 battery draining quickly

It is suggested that many users are facing issues with their iPhone battery as it is draining way too quickly. Apart from the iPhones, some users are also experiencing the same problem on their Apple Watch due to the new watchOS 7 update.

Additionally, the battery drain is not the only problem users are facing. It is suggested that users are losing their Workout GPS routes and health data in the Fitness or Health app. The apps are also failing to load. Several users have been reporting the issue, following which Apple has released an official note that tells how you can fix the problem. For this, you will be required to factory reset the iPhone and even their Apple Watches. Here’s how you can do so:

Head to the Settings app on your iPhone

  • Tap the General option
  • Now select the Reset option
  • Once done, select the ‘Erase All Content and Settings’ option

For the Apple Watch, unpair it from your iPhone by heading to the Watch app and selecting the My Watch tab and then the All Watches option. Finally, select the Unpair Apple Watch option.

Before you do any of this make sure your data is backed up to iCloud, Once, all this is done, restore your iPhone and Apple Watch and you are good to go.
Apple has published a support document on its website that provides a workaround for fixing poor battery performance after updating to iOS 14. The new document comes just after the Cupertino company saw several users reporting battery life issues even after updating their iPhone to iOS 14.0.1. Instead of directing affected users to turn off or on any particular settings, Apple said in the document that erasing all content and settings from the iPhone running on iOS 14 might help to revive its battery life.

The support document lists seven issues that users might have faced after installing iOS 14.0 and watchOS 7.0. While the six initial issues are related to the missing health and workout data as well as inaccuracy of the data available on the Fitness app or Health app, the seventh issue mentioned in the document is specifically related to the “increased battery drain” problem. This seems to be quite a big issue if we look at user complaints on social media.

Apple has noted in the document that if you re amongst the affected users and experiencing “two or more” of the listed issue, you need to unpair your iPhone and your Apple Watch, back up to iCloud, and erase all content stored on your iPhone. After that, the company has recommended restoring your iPhone and Apple Watch from the recent backups.

This is not the first time that Apple is facing complaints around battery performance through its new iOS release. It saw similar issues with some of the big iOS updates in the past as well. However, it seems a little interesting that the company wasn’t able to address the battery draining — as well as the health and workout data related issues — despite bringing iOS 14.0.1 as a bug fix update.

Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
