Anyone noticed that now when you unlock with Face ID, the lock symbol will have a longer animation? Didn't notice this in iOS 12.

I have noticed it too on iOS 12.1. It was much faster, or at least didn’t show the circle/round/loading animation, on iOS 12.0.

Ever since I installed iOS 12, battery has been bad... battery drop so fast, especially using safari. Battery can drop 5-8% from 10-15 min surfing hardwarezone forum. I wonder if reformat help? Iphone SE user here.

Give it a while to stabilise. Not to jump into conclusion so fast since iOS tends to rebuild cache and so on after every update. Depending on your user media inside, it could take hours to rebuild and that takes ip battery. Also, do check your battery health to make sure it’s in peak performance..

Clean installing your SE? It might. Especially if you have been upgrading iOS on top of an existing installation.

What is the condition of your battery? The other thing to consider is not leaving any apps running in the background by swiping them closed immediately after use.

But a five to eight percent drop in a few minutes is drastic.

This is a misconception among iOS users. When you swipe up to delete the apps, the battery life actually takes more hit than when you leave it running in the background.

iOS will automatically optimize the background running apps to reduce battery life and memory usage. This is the thing iOS user has to understand.

Me neither but on & off the WiFi will drop!
Is this the same issue that you had on 11.4.1 update with Singtel routers?

I have been getting frequent SIM failures after updating to iOS 12.1 This is an iPhone 7 Plus. I also noticed right after the SIM failure, the phone will show the lockscreen as if you just restarted with the system message like the phone has just restarted, you have to enter the passcode instead of the Touch ID to unlock as if the phone restarted but it did not. Anyone else had this bug?

Yes. Many fail to realise that closing the app and then opening it again drains more battery as it takes a lot of juice to open the app. Just leave it in the background and iOS will manage the usage and power consumed by the app.
