When the latest iPhones — the 6S and the 6S Plus, came out last September, they had many frustrating and often troublesome bugs. While most of the bugs were addressed by the tech giant in past software upgrades, there is all, but one flaw that surfaced a few months ago and still hasn’t been fixed — the battery percentage indicator issue.

The issue was first spotted by gamers who tried to manually change their iPhones’ time in order to gain extra credit in time-based games. The bug, at the root level, stops the battery indicator from updating after the time on the smartphone is changed manually by the user.

These false readings have annoyed people to no end. Most users expected a fix to the problem in a past push update, but until now, there hasn’t been anything from the Cupertino giant.

Apple finally acknowledged the problem and offered a temporary fix too. The company’s advise is to restart your phone and make sure that ‘Set Automatically’ is turned on in Settings > General > Date & Time. If this doesn’t work for you, the company is encouraging users to contact Apple support.

The company also said that it is currently investigating the problem and will release a fix as soon as possible. This fix can be expected to be one of the bugs killed in the next iOS 9.2.1 or the larger iOS 9.3 update. The company hasn’t provided any other info on the subject as of now.
