Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus impacted by ‘Stuck’ battery percentage Bar: Fix coming
Apple seems to be beset with many issues at the moment. Its stock price is going down and down and has moved below $98. If that was not enough, Appleâ€™s most recent smartphones iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s are not doing so well as far as sale is concerned.
Now there is another issue confronting the top smartpphone brand. The company has now said that a bug is actually impacting iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones that is preventing the battery percentage bar from showing real-time information.
This means that if your handset is showing higher battery and then drains all in a sudden, the issue is not with your handset alone, it is a widespread issue with two newest handsets from the company.
While admitting the issue the tech giant wrote in a support document that the system time on the iPhone is apparently triggering the issue. When a user makes changes to the system time, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus stop updating the battery level. The issue is also affecting users who’re travelling from one time zone to another.
An iPhone users while complaining about it said, “My iPhone 6s Plus battery percentage gets stuck frequently. Like for example, it will say 87 percent all day, and then I’ll plug it in for an hour, and it will still say 87 percent,” a user wrote. “The only fix I’ve found is to power the phone off and then turn it back on. Then the percentage will update correctly, and will usually continue to update properly for awhile. But eventually it gets stuck again.”
The company has assured its fans that it is working to launch a fix for the problem pretty soon. It has also asked affected users to restart their iPhone and then ensure that the system clock time is being automatically set. To do this, go to Settings > General > Date & Time and check if the Set Automatically option is turned on. So wait for the fix and follow instructions.
