On the iPhone 12 series released this year, the phone’s battery capacity has been reduced, so the iOS system’s power management and the A14 Bionic chip’s performance/power ratio also have higher requirements. However, today, iPhone 12 is frequently reported by users to have battery problems. Users are experiencing high power consumption when using the phone, and this is the case when WiFi, 5G signal or even power saving mode is turned on.
In common cases, affected users’ phones will drop 20-30% of their power overnight; in extreme cases, iPhone 12Pro may lose nearly 50% of its power overnight and iPhone 12Mini may be completely discharged.
In response to the fast battery consumption problem, some Apple users tried to close all background programs, Bluetooth, reset the system, etc., but still did not get a solution. One user even pointed out that as long as his iPhone 12 Pro phone has a SIM card installed, his phone’s power will drop drastically, which will not happen if the SIM is not installed.

In the official Apple forums and Reddit and other discussion forums, there are more and more users feedback iPhone 12 standby power consumption anomaly is caused by the existence of battery consumption in iOS 14.2 version may also be iOS system problems, but these need more samples for confirmation.
