Although it has been around for a long time, iOS 16 is still said to be the cause of iPhone battery drain rapidly after the release of iOS operating system.

I know it took a few days. got the phone back to normal but it’s been almost a week and no change. I’m planning to go back to iOS 15.7 but I need to consult more of you.”

Long battery life is something that has always been on Apple devices” and recommends that users check battery health and upgrade time for support.
