Recently, many users have reported that the iPhone 12 series consumes a lot of battery power. Especially when it is on standby at night. You can wake up and find out that the battery has been reduced by 20%~30%. Originally, the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 is lower than that of the iPhone 11. Now that the power consumption is so fast, there must be a problem. After inquiring through the official website customer service, I came to the conclusion that the power consumption of the iPhone 12 is not a hardware problem. This problem is mainly due to an issue with the dual-card/dual-standby driver. Next, I will tell you 5 fixes for iPhone 12 battery-drain
5 Fixes for iPhone 12 Battery-Drain Without a Software Upgrade
First of all, it is important to understand that when the power consumption of the iPhone 12 series is particularly serious, it is when it is in standby mode while you are sleeping at night.
According to the feedback from users and fans. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro power consumption will be very fast after using dual card mode. This mode is capable of consuming about 30% every night when there is no app running in the background.
At present, this problem has been reported this problem to Apple and they are already taking steps to try to solve it. Even the iPhone 12 that has just been bought will also have this problem.
According to the analysis, the iPhone 12 power consumption issue is due to the dual-SIM dual-standby drive problem, whereby the system will easily report an error when the dual-card is activated. In this case, the iPhone will run under a high load, and as a result, the power consumption will be very fast. Even when the phone is not running any application, the power consumption will be abnormal.
If you use a SIM card or turn on the extraordinary mode at this time, the power consumption will become normal at this time.
While we wait for Apple to update the iOS14 system in order to fix this problem, there are actually some apple fans who have found some solutions that can improve the abnormal power consumption of the iPhone 12 series during standby:
1. Reset The Network Settings to Solve iPhone 12 Abnormal Power Consumption
Before you reset the network, know that the iPhone supports 5G connectivity. If you 5G coverage and you select it, and it connects at once, this can reduce the abnormal battery condition of iPhone12. This trick has been tested by many users.
Network resetting method: enter the setting>>general>>reset the network settings. There is a very critical step in this step. Be sure to check in the settings-mobile service to see if the current network is selected for current operation and then in the cellular data, click Reset settings. See the image above for an illustration.
2. Turn on Airplane Mode to Temporarily Fix iPhone 12 Power Consumption
The abnormal power consumption of the iPhone 12 usually occurs at night, so when you sleep, you can directly turn on the airplane mode. At this time, just turn on the WIFI switch if you need to connect to the internet.
3. Always Try and Charge iPhone 12 While You are Asleep
Before iOS14 is officially launched to fix this bug, if you are worried that you will miss important calls when you turn on the airplane mode, then continue to charge your phone. But when charging, turn on the “battery optimization function”. This function can reduce the phenomenon of battery aging, of course, the old iPhone can also operate in this way to extend the health of the battery.
4. Perform A Factory Reset
Some users try this with positive results. However, please don’t use this function indiscriminately. Always remember to back up all your data before starting it. After restoring to factory default, the abnormal power consumption of iPhone 12 will be temporarily resolved.
5. Wait for Apple to Release A New Software That Will Solve The Problem
The above 4 tricks cannot completely solve the problem of abnormal battery power consumption of the iPhone 12. The Tricks above are only temporary. So I suggest you wait for Apple to release the latest version of iOS14 so that this bug can be completely fixed.
Generally speaking, the iPhone 12 released this year has many problems, such as a green/yellow screen, touch failure, and abnormal battery life. Simply, most of these problems are iOS system abnormalities, which can be solved by software upgrades.
But overall, the iPhone 12 is still very easy to use, with a light and thin body, and a very comfortable feel. The battery capacity is less than 3,000 mAh. Before the abnormality, the battery life is actually OK. Basically, it will be useful for a whole day when fully charged.
