Apple is known for rolling out timely updates to improve its users' mobile and PC experience. Sometimes, the tech giant is embroiled into unknown glitches. Earlier this month, Apple rolled out iOS 8.2 to its iPhone and iPad users to improve the overall performance and add support to Apple Watch via an app. But the most recent software tagged along some unwanted errors, most notably the Wi-Fi and battery problems triggered a sense of discontent among iPhone users.
Apple hasn't rolled out any patch addressing the major concern. But you do not have to suffer at the cost of that. Previously we had discussed how to fix some of the top iOS 8.2-associated errors, but had not focussed on the battery drain problem. To fill the void, we found a trick from a Reddit user that helps to fix the battery issues temporarily.
Apple's iOS 8.2 update brought several improvements to its Health app, which according to Redmond Pie seems to be the root of the cause. Disabling the app completely appears to have stopped the battery from running out in just few hours.
How To Disable Health App On iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5S?
- Go to Settings on your iPhone menu
- Tap on Privacy
- Locate Motion & Fitness and tap on it
- Turn off Fitness Tracking
By doing so, iPhone users will shut off a feature that is not used by many. This may not serve as a permanent fix to the problem, but should help users until Apple releases a permanent fix. This solution may not be appropriate for all users, depending on whether they use Health app to track fitness using their iPhone.
