Apple officially launched the iPhone 12 series including 4 smartphones. Apple always provides strong battery life in its iPhones. But some users facing battery draining problems with their iPhone 12 Pro. However, we all use our phones differently, and we know that no matter how good battery life is on a daily basis there are going to be situations (and problems) that crop up that have us wanting more.
A user asked on the official Apple community, iPhone 12 Pro Battery Drain When Idle at 4% on WiFi, Is this normal? then many others answered and shared the same problem.
Trying to work out if I have a defective unit I need to send back or if there’s a wider issue here. The iPhone 12 Pro is advertised as having a smaller battery than the iPhone 11 Pro so I expected to have slightly reduced battery life (which is fine as 11 Pro was excellent).
However I’m noticing that the iPhone 12 Pro is draining when idle with almost no background activity at a rate of 4% which is much faster than my previous iPhone 11 Pro, and to be honest a faster idle drain than I can actually remember from a new iPhone. First instinct was to disable Mobile data to see if it was a 5G thing, but I actually don’t see any real difference from doing that (which makes sense as I’ve been on Wifi 98% of the time since I got it).
No matter what I try, it seems to be going down oddly quick. Not to an useable level or anything world ending, but I guess its sort of suspicious. I check the battery report, and it’s not showing any real culprit, just a rapid decline for no clear reason.
If anyone can share their idle battery with either 12 or 12 Pro I’d really appreciate it.
