While all the attention is on iOS 8 at the moment thanks to being just days away from Apple’s WWDC 2014 keynote, other users are more concerned about current affairs and the expected iOS 7.1.2 release time.
We have been using iOS 7.1.1 on our iPad and have already seen the demand for the next version to be installed before Apple’s event takes place on June 2. Looking around on social boards, it’s not difficult to see that a lot of users are even expecting Apple to release iOS 7.1.2 before the end of this week.
Although Apple are working towards improving with each update, it hasn’t stopped the debate about iOS 7.1.1 battery life. Users want to see iOS 7 battery life improved as a priority above any other feature as at the moment – apps are draining battery life like there’s no tomorrow.
Whatsapp is a prime example of an app that doesn’t play friendly with Apple’s latest software. An hour of constant Whatsapp usage will result in a significant loss of battery and most of you must agree that Apple needs to start tweaking.
Is iOS 7.1.2 working or get it released anyway today?

iOS 7.1.2 is supposed to be released today. Apple, why.

Playing iPad games on iOS 7.1.1 is also worrying in terms of battery life, especially those that use excellent apps such as the Puffin Browser to enjoy Adobe Flash games on the tablet.
Apple are not giving any hints of course on when the next iOS 7.1 update will drop, but users will be hoping that it comes before the end of the week and will bring iOS 7.1.2 update fixes with it.
Do you agree that battery life improvements from Apple are a priority right now for you? Let us know your own expectations and what areas you need to see improved the most.
