Available only on the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini, the update promises to help solve problems with the Wi-Fi, following complaints from users denouncing the loss of connection and poor signal quality.

However, this new version seems to have a significant impact on battery autonomy.

According to TidBIT’s Michael Cohen and Adam C. Engst, this reduced battery life could be directly related to the Wi-Fi management which consumes more energy than before.
