Apple officially released the iOS 17.2.1 update at the end of December. This new version includes important bug fixes and resolves the issue of faster than expected battery drain in certain scenarios.
However, according to user feedback, the update still does not fix the battery life problem. Many users are still struggling with excessive battery consumption. Additionally, some users have reported new issues.
One user reported that after updating their iPhone to iOS 17.2.1, they could no longer connect to cellular networks. The user tried resetting the network settings, but it did not work. They expressed frustration, mentioning their trust in Apple over the years but now feeling uncertain.
The iOS 17 release already had numerous issues, and even after almost three months since its initial release, Apple is still working hard to fix them. Despite temporarily suspending the development of future major iOS updates to focus solely on fixing the existing system, the problems with iOS 17 appear to be too extensive for consumers’ complete satisfaction.
It is expected that the issues present in iOS 17.2 will be addressed in the upcoming iOS 17.3 update. The new version is currently in the testing phase and is anticipated to be released in January.
