With the launch of WatchOS 6 last September, available for all Apple smart watch models, New functions, applications, areas and features have been introduced that are quite useful.
However, it seems that not everything is working out to order, because Many users are claiming to have battery problems, not only in those who have installed version 6 but also in those who have the new Apple Watch model, the series 5.
WatchOS 6 may be consuming more battery than expected.
Those who have reported battery problems agree that they have WatchOS 6 installed. Almost all say that they do not reach the end of the day with the same percentage as before their installation. It is true that the applications and utilities they have incorporated are quite useful but they may not be fully optimized.
Apple Watch Series 5 owners They attribute this wear problem to the Always On Display. This new system makes the watch keep the screen always on so that the user can consult the information offered by the watch in a more comfortable and faster way. In fact there are improvements when this function is disabled and the brightness is lowered from the iPhone application.
But those who have any other model, have also suffered the consequences of reaching the end of the day with a very fair battery percentage. Some users say that the problem is generated by the new noise detection application, which makes the clock listen to our environment constantly, to warn us in case the dB is high. It is not known exactly what is causing this decrease in usage time.
Hopefully with the version of WatchOS 6.1 the problems that are being warned can be solved quickly and happily to users. At the moment we are in the second beta for developers of this new version.
