iOS 6.1.4 Plaguing iPhones with Battery Drain?

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – iPhone 5 owners continue to complain about battery drain issues after updating to iOS 6.1.4, a report from Gotta Be Mobile signaled Thursday.

Users have taken to Apple Forums to inquire about the matter. One person in particular complained that watching a saved podcast dropped their device battery down to 70% in just one hour’s time.

iOS 6.1.4 was launched just earlier this month – a small update that was said to address the audio profile for speakerphone. Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that not everyone is complaining of the battery drain problems prominently reported with the latest version of iOS.

It was previously reported that Google Now’s arrival on the iPhone could also cause battery drain. Google later hit out at the accusations, calling them “incorrect.”

Apple is expected to unveil iOS version 7 in June during the company’s annual WWDC conference.
