- Some iPhone 12 owners are experiencing excessive battery drain.
- The issue is happening even when the phone is in standby or Low Power Mode.
Reported by 9to5Mac, some iPhone 12 owners are experiencing unusual battery drain on their new iPhones. While faster battery drain can be expected when you first get a new iPhone due to all of the app installs and data loading going on in the background, the users in Apple's Community Support forums are reporting excessive drain even when the phone is in Low Battery Mode or on standby overnight.
The user had tried to turn off suspected culprits like 5G, but that did not have any impact on fixing the problem.
The above image shows the battery drain one user is experiencing and you can see that the drain continues at the same pace despite the phone going into Low Battery Mode. Another user spoke to Apple Support and came away with the notion that it may be a bug that could be fixed in an upcoming update to iOS 14.
Many users have responded to the post saying that they are seeing similar issues with their new iPhones.
