Apple iPhone 6s users are reportedly experiencing battery life problems, leaving many longing for the iOS 9.3 update. Consequently, experts also believe that the upcoming update may hint what Apple has in store to shake up its iOS release strategy.
According to a report from Gotta Be Mobile, iPhone 6s users are faced with a battery bug problem. Users reported their phone dying without warning even with the battery meter still showing plenty of juice. It is not as widespread as other problems, but it is a pressing issue for a number of users. The report also says that the problem seems to be apparent only for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus including the iOS 9.2 update. This leaves some iPhone users looking forward to Apple’s fix to see if the problem can be solved.
Apple already acknowledged the issue. The company posted on its page: “If you change the time on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus manually or change time zones when traveling, you might notice that the battery percentage doesn’t update.”
However, there are no definite details as to when the fix will arrive. It did offer some tips, though. It may not be too far off, considering the tech giant has already released the first beta of iOS 9.3. The beta software features a number of enhancements including Night Shift, TouchID protection for Notes and a series of 3D Touch functionality improvements.
According to Macworld’s Dan Moren, Apple’s decision on the iOS 9.3 seems unusual. The company just decided to pack substantial enhancements in iOS 9.3 that this may hint at its new approach to improve its release strategy. Moren said that since iPhone can be considered a mature product already, it appears as if the company thinks there is no need to include new major features in its annual upgrades unlike before. This could mean that Apple may no longer wait for a full year to release interesting new features.
