One Reddit user was experiencing some very faulty battery life with their iPhone. The person simply posted, “So I found out why my battery was dying fast.” The image above says it all.
Some of the commenters have claimed that they verified that this does kill battery life faster. One of the best comments in the thread is, “Instead of just using time stamps. The Apple Stopwatch runs an entire universe simulation to gauge the most accurate time.”
There are also interesting explanations of how the stop watch works. We’re not totally positive that these people are right, but it’s kind of cool to read anyway:
“Start time is stored in RAM, when you open stopwatch it just takes the diff between current time and stored time.”
Oh well. It’s all still kind of funny.
