IPhone SE, iPhone 6s suffer fast battery drain on iOS 11.4

IPhone SE, iPhone 6s suffer fast battery drain on iOS 11.4

There isn't anything in the way of new features, instead delivering on some bug fixes and stability improvements. On the iPhone X, it's a relatively small file at just 252.2 MB.

The update includes a new feature called "USB Restricted Mode" that will disable a data connection from the iPhone's charging/data port at the bottom of the device after one hour of being locked by default. That update brought Messages in the Cloud, after a long delay and stereo pairing for the HomePod. By contrast, today's update has just two bullet points in the official notes, but improved syncing of Exchange accounts is a highlight. So, with that in mind, you need to make sure that you have downloaded the iOS 11.4 IPSW file for your device. Get patching, Cupertino fans, by checking for software updates and installing them. Specifically, the update fixes a problem that kept some users from seeing the last known location of Apple's true wireless earbuds with the Find My iPhone tool. It's available to the same devices as iOS 11.4-the iPhone 5S and later, the iPad Air and later, the iPad mini 2 and later, and 2015 iPod touch.

Rain adds urgency to rescue of last five trapped in Thai cave
The rescuers have been learning from experience and were two hours faster in bringing the second batch of survivors out on Monday. The global effort to save the group has paired divers in "buddy teams" with the remaining eight boys and their coach .

Based on Apple's previous update cycles, it is possible that these are the last updates for these operating systems before iOS 12 and its cousins arrive later this year.

However, if you aren't actually happy with the release, and you want to go back to an earlier version of iOS, then be aware that Apple is now only signing iOS 11.4, which means that you will only be able to downgrade to iOS 11.4. Another user having similar issues claims that the iPhone was updated to iOS 11.4, charged to 100%, rebooted and left in standby for four hours.
