How To Fix Bad iOS 16 Beta Battery Life

iOS 16 beta users are complaining about battery life issues. If you start noticing abnormal battery drain on your iPhone and don’t want to go back to iOS 15, here are some potential fixes you can try.

Battery life issues always affect iOS beta software, so it’s no surprise that some iOS 16 beta testers have encountered these issues.

In this guide, we’ll cover some potential fixes for bad iOS 16 beta battery life. The fixes we list here have worked for us and many others in the past, so they have a chance to work for you too.

Restart your iPhone

If you start experiencing excessive battery drain on iOS 16 beta, we recommend restarting your iPhone before doing anything else.

Turn off your iPhone, wait a minute and turn it back on. A quick reboot can have a tremendous impact on your device’s performance.

Upgrade to Latest iOS 16 Beta

Apple will periodically release new iOS 16 beta software. While the company doesn’t cite battery life fixes in its changelog, new beta software always has the potential to mitigate these issues.

If your iPhone is running the old iOS 16 beta software, try upgrading to the latest version.

Control Your Apps

Both first- and third-party apps tend to act on iOS beta software, and they’re most likely the source of your problems.

Checking app performance is extremely easy in iOS 16 beta, and if there is a culprit, it will only take you a few moments to find it. Here’s how to do this:

If you use an app a lot, it will consume more battery than an app you never use. However, if you see something that doesn’t look right, you’ll want to investigate further.

If you see an app that is consuming an abnormal amount of battery, try deleting the app from your device and see if that improves your iPhone’s battery life.

If the app is essential for your daily routine, we recommend downloading the latest update. If that doesn’t help and you really need the app to get through your day, you may need to revert to iOS 15.

reset all settings

If you determine that your apps are not the source of your problem, try resetting all of your iPhone’s settings.

Before doing this, be aware that it will cause your phone to forget known Wi-Fi networks (and Bluetooth connections), so have your passwords handy before proceeding.

Here’s how you can reset all your iPhone’s settings:

This process can take a few seconds, so you’ll want to be patient.

Go Back to iOS 15

If you can’t find a manual fix and/or don’t want to wait for Apple’s next iOS 16 beta, you can roll back to iOS 15. The downgrade option will always be available, but your downgrade options may change over time.

Unfortunately, you can only revert to iOS 15.6. You can’t downgrade to an older version than that because Apple has now stopped signing in on older versions of iOS.

Buy Battery Case or Battery Bank

Purchasing a battery case or battery bank can help offset the battery drain you experience during the beta.

We usually recommend going with a mophie battery caseHowever Apple’s official battery cases It’s a great alternative if you prefer to go with a first-party accessory.

If you don’t want to attach a bulky case to your iPhone, you may want to purchase a battery bank.

Battery banks are small portable power sources that can charge your iPhone multiple times. There are lots of great options out there, but Mophie’s power station line and Anker Powercore line are some of our favourites.
