Apple’s latest update to their iOS 7.1 is reportedly causing iPhones to lose battery power quicker

iPhone and iPad users running the latest software version, iOS 7.1, is considerably draining battery life, according to some users.

iPhone owners have taken to Twitter and the Apple Community Forum message boards to voice their frustration at iOS 7.1, the first major update to Apple’s newest operating system for iPhones and iPads.

One angry iPhone user on an official Apple forum wrote: ‘My iphone 5s battery also drains fast after ios 7.1 update. Before the update I get 24hrs moderate to heavy use. But now I only get 12 hours.’

iOS 7.1 has already been downloaded on 26 percent of Apple devices since its release on Monday.
