WhatsApp update causes severe battery loss
Users of some OnePlus and Xiaomi models have experienced a rapid battery drain when using the WhatsApp messenger, reports Android Authority.
Issue was raised by users in OnePlus tech forum, Playstore and Reddit. The problem affected the owners with devices running on Android 9 and 10. It is assumed that this may be related to the release of WhatsApp update.
Some owners even report this bug taking as much as 40% of the battery despite very limited use.
Recently, Apple products were also affected. This include IPhones with WhatsApp version 2.19.112.
