One of the biggest issues with the latest iteration of iOS is that it drains the iPhone’s battery faster than usual. iOS 11 brings a range of improvements and design overhauls, however, soon after updating, users started complaining how their iPhones started consuming more power. Apple is now set to change this with the next major update to iOS 11.

Apple is preparing for the rollout of the iOS 11.1 version and the fifth beta, which was recently released promises that one of the major issues troubling iPhone users after the update will be taken care of. The significant iOS update brings tremendous improvement to the battery backup, BGR notes. If you are a developer or a registered beta tester, you can install the iOS 11.1 beta 5, and compare the battery performance. YouTube channel iDeviceHelp conducted a series of tests to judge just how much the performance improves, and found that the battery improvement was actually included in the beta 4 of iOS 11.1. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone X is the first iPhone I won’t buy on day one: Steve Wozniak

The performance was measured between iOS 11.0.3 and iOS 11.1 beta 4 on iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 8 Plus devices. When the phones were running iOS 11.0.3, almost all died after less than five hours of screen usage. However, once the newest beta was installed, each model appeared to gain between 2-4 hours of battery life. ALSO READ: iOS 11 overtook iOS 10 with 48.6% installs, soon lost race with a drop to 43%

It is to be understood that that next major update to the iOS 11 might not provide you with extra power in real-life usage, but it does appear to address the current issue of excessive battery drainage. Given that the iOS 11.1 is in its last beta, we might soon be able to install it on non-developer devices.
