iOS 14.4.1 Battery Life Drain Tested And Benchmarked On iPhone 11, XR, 8, SE, More

Apple recently released iOS 14.4.1 to the public with the sole aim of getting an important security fix out and into the wild. It’s done exactly that, but what does the update mean for the battery life of Apple’s iPhone range?

With the update not adding any new features it’s likely that you won’t see any huge differences, whether it’s beneficial or the opposite.

But as we have learned in the past there are all kinds of strange things that happen when you’re dealing with iOS updates. So, what’s the case with iOS 14.4.1? That’s something YouTube channel iApple Bytes sets out to do. The result? Check it out below.

This video was shot 3 days after iOS 14.4.1 was installed, so it had time to settle in. I have seen many comments that it takes about a week for battery performance to optimize itself after an iOS update. I have always been skeptical of this statement as I have never personally had bad battery life right after I update. If I restore and download backup from iCloud well then that is another story. So I decided to run the battery test 5 days after I updated them. In those 5 days they were just idling with power connected. So let’s run the battery test again, and see if we will get some different results this time around.

We won’t spoil the results for you, so go check the video out to see how things went down. It’s worth remembering that you’re likely to see different results depending on which particular iPhone you’re using and the current battery health. But this video will at least give you a benchmark to work off.
