So, you've probably heard the whispers: Apple's fresh-out-the-oven iOS 17 update might be causing some iPhones to take a little siesta at night. Curious? Let’s break it down! 📱💤
The Mysterious Midnight Shutdowns: Launched with Apple's shiny new iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, iOS 17 has been mostly a joy ride. However, over the past week, some iPhone users have reported waking up to discover their device has been playing Sleeping Beauty while charging.
Zac Hall from 9to5Mac shared that he woke up to his iPhone asking for the passcode “after an apparent restart overnight.” And guess what? The battery log indicated a few hours of downtime after hitting 100% charge.
Now, you might think, "Hey, tech can be quirky sometimes, right?" But when a Reddit thread about this racked up nearly 800 upvotes and close to 300 comments, it’s clear we're not talking about isolated cases. Users have been sharing similar tales, with some even needing to re-enter their SIM pins.
Which iPhones are affected? Though the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro are in the spotlight, reports suggest that older models, like the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13, are also joining this unexpected sleepover.
But before we all jump on the concern train, let’s note: this isn’t happening to every iPhone. For instance, my iPhone 15 Pro Max? It’s been the model of a good sleeper, powering through the night without a hiccup.
What Should You Do? Apple’s playing it coy and hasn’t commented on the situation. But a golden piece of advice: if you trust your iPhone to sing you the song of its people (also known as the alarm tone) every morning, it might be a good idea to have a backup alarm for now.
In Conclusion: Tech mysteries make life exciting, don’t they? We're all hoping Apple will provide clarity soon. In the meantime, let's keep our ears to the ground and our iPhones maybe a tad closer. And hey, if your iPhone is one of those catching some extra Zs, just know you're not alone.
Stay curious, stay updated, and here’s to hoping all our devices remain wide awake when we need them to!
