Last Tuesday Apple released it’s newest mobile operating system, iOS 11. There have been reports on the web of the new iOS draining the batter faster from mobile devices.
I saw that first hand on my iPhone 7. After updating Tuesday afternoon, I used my phone as I normally do on Wednesday morning. I typically wake up, check some emails and do a little work using my iPhone. That usually runs me down to about 90%. Then I take about a 1 hour walk and during that time I have my runkeeper app on, listening to music on my bluetooth ear phones and doing some work on the phone. Typically it takes the battery down to around 50-60%. After updating, I did my usual routine on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. By the time I finished my walk, my battery was less than 5%. I had to stop using it for work the last 15 minutes to make sure I had enough to complete my walk.
