iOS / iPadOS 14.2: Users report serious energy consumption

The fact that the capacity of a battery decreases over time is in the nature of things: meanwhile, the battery status can be read out with on-board tools and users are able to make a decision more easily whether it makes sense to replace this component. But if a software update is identified as the cause of problems with the battery, the user has no choice but to wait – and hope for improvement on the part of the manufacturer. This situation has now occurred for some users: Some owners of older iPhone and iPad models are currently reporting enormous energy consumption under iOS and iPadOS 14.2.
