Apple to investigate misleading battery bug

The latest iPhone devices are displaying confusing battery percentages due to a glitch with the time settings

Apple to investigate misleading battery bug
The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have both been affected with a battery bug

The iPhone battery power can be a problem at the best of times, however Apple has confirmed it has detected a bug which misleads its users on how much battery power the iPhones actually have.

Both the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been affected, meaning the battery display fails to update the actual battery percentage and the device could shut down though it appears to be fully charged.

According to Apple, the glitch occurs when the user manually changes the time on their iPhones, moves between time zones or adjusts for daylight savings.

Though Apple has not specified a time frame for the fix, it is testing a new iOS 9.3 version. The update could potentially repair the glitch, but will also include new features, such as a night mode to filter out blue light and the ability to pair multiple Apple Watches with a single iPhone device.

In the meantime Apple has advised users to restart their iPhones and enable the automatic time settings.
