Updated from iOS 14.5 yesterday to iOS 14.5.1 on my iPhone 11. After the update finished, I was playing CODM and noticed the frame rates were horrible. I checked my settings to make that it was set to the max frame rate, which it was. I then ran a geekbench test, and the scores I got were horrible for the multi-core. I then rebooted my phone to no avail; it was still super slow in games and in opening apps. I then proceeded to do a clean install which seems to have fixed the issue. Now my geekbench score is normal, and performance is what it used to be. What is going on, Apple? Anyone else having this issue? Upload a screenshot of your geekbench score on iOS 14.5.1 and tell us what device you have.

Is battery at all related to this? Express VPN normally accounts for 5-10% of my daily battery usage. Since 14.5.1 my VPN accounts for 50-60% of my battery usage.
Battery life hasn’t been any good on 14.5 and 14.5.1, WTF is going on at apple these days, are they turning into the next Samsung. ?‍♂️

Getting 2 hours less battery life on my 12 pro max.

Heard someone on here say it only throttles when you restart your phone, then once you lock and unlock it, it goes back to normal. ?

This true?

It does seem to throttle more during the first several minutes of being on then recovers to a usable state. Still noticeably laggy on my 7.

12 Pro, didn't have any issues after updating. I always reboot after the update finishes. This time, I updated via the IPSW.
