  1. The low power option is NOT there for both my iPad mini and iPad mini Retina, with both at 75% right now. The option is just not there for me to select it. Maybe they forgot to make that low power option to the iPads.

  2. No voice memo, no low power mode, no calculator, no health app for any iPads models. Why the hell all these omissions on iPads?. Is getting ridicolous.

  3. I just downloaded this update and my battery is dying at the speed of light. I’m not in low power mode, but now when I’m using my phone on wifi I can watch my battery drain in a matter of minutes. I don’t understand why my phone was BETTER with the old update.
