iOS 14.7 Battery Life Drain: How Does It Affect Performance?

Here’s iOS 14.7 battery life drain on iPhone and how does it affect performance on some of Apple’s most used iOS devices.

Apple released iOS 14.7 to the public just a couple of days ago, and while people are always keen to install new updates there are always two questions — does the update impact battery life, and how does it change performance? That’s something YouTuber iAppleBytes also wondered, so they set about finding out the answers.

A new YouTube video puts an iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and 2020 iPhone SE through their paces using Geekbench to see exactly how iOS 14.7 performs. As always, the video was shot after iOS 14.7 was given a chance to settle down, too.

This video was shot 3 days after iOS 14.7 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 4 days after I updated them. In those 3 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.

Apple has had some pretty bad iOS updates of late in terms of battery performance, so it will be hoping that things are much more promising this time around. That’s something users will be keen to find out as well, so this video is well timed.

We aren’t going to spoil the outcome because the video is worth watching if you’re at all concerned about battery life and performance. Check it out before updating to IOS 14.7 if that’s you!
