Apple reports fewer unexpected iPhone shutdowns

Since late 2016, users who downloaded iOS 10 have been complaining about the so-called 30% battery bug, which caused their phones to drain from 30% to 1% and then shut off — or just shut off at 30%.

TechCrunch reports that installing iOS 10.2.1 has resulted in 80% fewer shutdowns on iPhone 6s models and 70% fewer shutdowns on iPhone 6 devices.

Here’s the statement Apple provided to TechCrunch:

With iOS 10.2.1, Apple made improvements to reduce occurrences of unexpected shutdowns that a small number of users were experiencing with their iPhone. iOS 10.2.1 already has over 50% of active iOS devices upgraded and the diagnostic data we’ve received from upgraders shows that for this small percentage of users experiencing the issue, we’re seeing a more than 80% reduction in iPhone 6s and over 70% reduction on iPhone 6 of devices unexpectedly shutting down.

If your device is still shutting down unexpectedly, Apple told TechCrunch that you can now restart your iPhone without having to plug it into an outlet.

So before you contact Apple about this issue, go ahead and install iOS 10.2.1 right away!
