Apple is rolling out a new series of software updates for its gadgets. This update includes both iOS 15.4.1 and iPadOS 15.4.1 for all compatible iPhones and iPads.

This may seem like a small update with no new features, as the number incrementation clearly suggests.

However, it claims to increase something that we are sure is quite essential to the majority of Apple users: battery life. The recent reports state that installing this patch will resolve the battery drain issues that were supposedly triggered with the release of iOS 15.4 just a short while ago.


A workaround for Braille devices (a touch reading and writing method for blind users) becoming unresponsive while navigating text or showing an alert is also included, as well as a fix for Made for iPhone hearing devices (made for Apple) losing connection within select third-party apps.

Other, unspecified bug fixes and performance improvements may also be included, but the major hype is all about the fix for battery drain issues.

If your iPhone or iPad becomes extremely hungry following the iOS or iPadOS 15.4 version, you should go to Settings and install iOS 15.4.1 or iPadOS 15.4.1 which should be available for all devices by now.
