Battery Meters in the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus Can Be Misleading

apple iphone battery meter bug

Problems with misleading battery meters are usually encountered in cheaper smartphones that run Android operating systems, but keep in mind that I used the word “cheaper.” However, Apple’s iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are not exactly known for their affordability, so it makes sense that their users would expect a certain level of quality, especially as far as software is concerned. Recent reports indicate that the aforementioned smartphone models come with a bug that causes their battery meters to display inaccurate data. Apple has indeed admitted to this and stated that it is currently working on a fix for the issue.

Apparently, the problem arises when the user changes the time on the smartphone or when the device enters different time zones. Those of you who do a lot of traveling for work or leisure will probably encounter this bug, which causes the gadget to shut down unexpectedly even though its battery meter shows a full charge. Until the fix is released, however, Apple advises you to restart your iPhone and enable the automatic time setting found in the “Date & Time” section. This is definitely not the first time that we heard about an Apple bug linked to time and date settings, as a previous one used to break alarms and cause people to be late for work. Hopefully, the upcoming iOS 9.3 update will include a fix for this recent issue as well.
