I have an iPhone 8 (not plus) but don't see any difference - all working well on 11.4 since upgrade

Battery is great, camera works, all good.

In my experience at least battery seems fine on 11.4 on both 7+/8+.

Is there a specific app showing in your brother‘s battery stats? Maybe some app isn’t playing nice with the update. I have heard some people did have battery issues on 11.4, maybe that’s one of the reasons for 11.4.1.

Our 8+ on 11.4 has not hurt the battery in the least!
So should I to install 11.4?
I will not have battery issues?

I doubt it is because of OS 11.4 - maybe some of his apps running in the background, settings ?

Perhaps whatsapp ? or another ? things like location / GPS are hard on the battery - this can be adjusted by app in settings.

Of course you can always stay on 11.3 :)

As mentioned in the other thread that was linked easier about this exact thing, no one can really tell you what your experience will be like with your device. A few or some people have some issues (as is often the case with most updates), while many others don't.
