How to Fix iPhone XR battery drain Problem in iOS 14
Here is what you can do to fix severe battery drain issues with your iPhone XR that’s been updated to iOS 14 or that’s running iOS 14.
Fix 1: Reboot your iPhone
Go ahead and reboot your iPhone and let it boot back up afresh. I have seen cases where this was the issue, highly unlikely but lets start from a fresh boot.
Fix 2: Update All Apps
Head over to the App store and click your profile picture upper right of the display. Now update all Apps that show a update. Apps that are outdated or not compatible can cause problems such as battery drain on your device.
Fix 3: Uninstall Problematic Apps
A poorly coded App could cause issue and is best uninstalled or find a alternative until a update is completed. To see if a battery draining App is causing your problem head over to settings and then battery.
Scroll down and look at battery usage by App. See if any App stands out that’s abnormal especially if you don’t use it or it should not be using so much power. Find the app on the home screen and uninstall.
Fix 4: Check for Updates
Do a software update of your iPhones operating system. If its a general bug Apple will eventually push a bug fix or a more stable version of iOS so head over to settings, General and then Software update.
Fix 5: Backup and Reset
Sometimes Updates don’t go too well and as a last resort a reset is whats needed. So go ahead and backup your iPhone and head over to settings, General, Reset and Erase All content and settings.
After setting your iPhone up again don’t restore right away and test to see if the battery drain is gone. Go ahead and restore your files when you are satisfied. In some cases issue may continue if you do a restore using a software but you should know exactly whats happening after doing this.
