If you’ve been experiencing poor battery life on your Apple Watch 9 or an older model since watchOS 10.1 rolled out, you should know that help is on the way – and Apple is preparing a fix in a forthcoming software update.

Not hard to find complaints about the battery drain problem: have a look at Reddit or the official Apple Support Forum for example. The issue seems to be affecting multiple models, including the Apple Watch Ultra 2, running watchOS 10.1.

Software Issues in 10.1 should have fixed bugs but added new ones to WatchOS.
