The new watchOS update fixes the Apple Watch battery drain issue


Apple is preparing to fix an issue that caused some Apple Watches to experience excessive battery drain after updating to watchOS 10.1, the company said in an internal memo shared with Apple authorized service providers, according to macrumors.

In the note, Apple said that the issue will be resolved in a watchOS update “soon.” Apple did not provide any additional details in the note, so it is not clear what the root cause of the issue is, how many customers are affected, and whether every Apple Watch model is affected. He was affected.

There have been complaints about this issue from customers across the MacRumors forums, the Apple Support Community, Reddit, and .

“WatchOS 10.1 drained my Apple Watch battery, 100% to 50% in less than 60 minutes,” customer Martin Cooper wrote on X.

Apple's developer release notes for iOS 17.1 said the update fixed a "potential for increased power consumption" issue when pairing an Apple Watch running watchOS 10.1 with an iPhone running iOS 17, but the Apple Watch battery drain issue was apparently not fixed. Fully updated, so a watchOS update will be necessary.

MacRumors recently reported that Apple is gearing up to release iOS 17.1.1 for the iPhone, and the Apple Watch battery drain issue will likely be fixed in the watchOS 10.1.1 update. However, the fix likely won't arrive until watchOS 10.2, which is currently in progress. Beta testing is expected to be released in December.
