iOS 16 battery life: Is your iPhone’s battery draining out quicker after iOS 16 update? This may be the cause

When Apple’s new operating system, iOS 16, rolled out a few days ago, it was packed with new features such as the lock screen customization option, iMessage editing features, and some privacy updates.

The new iOS 16 update offers iPhone users a whole new user experience on the device, allowing users to do more with and on their smartphone. But what about the phone’s battery life?

After the update, several Apple users complained that they witnessed a sudden drop in their iPhone’s battery performance. Well, the ‘keyboard haptics’ feature on the iOS 16 could be the cause of that.

The battery drain problem on iPhones can be solved to a certain extent. According to support documents recently shared by Apple, the tech giant is warning users about the impact of the ‘keyboard haptics’ feature on iPhone battery life.

“Turning on keyboard haptics can affect your iPhone’s battery life,” according to Apple.

The keyboard haptics feature makes a sound or vibrates when you type on your iPhone’s keyboard. The Cupertino-based tech giant didn’t explain exactly how the feature affects the iPhone’s battery or to what extent, but did share steps to enable or disable the keyboard haptics on the device.

The feature consumes battery every time a user interacts with the iPhone’s screen and uses prompts. Even in Low Power mode, the feature does not turn off, meaning it will still consume battery despite the iPhone running in battery saving mode.

Even the new screen lock feature on the iOS 16 can affect the phone’s battery life. It requires how you have set up your widget or wallpaper and the selection of apps that appear on it. For example, the Weather app periodically tracks your current location, and if it shows up on your widget or lock screen, the feature consumes your battery and may drain your iPhone sooner.
