Apple Admitted the Battery Meter Bug of iOS 9 in iPhone 6

Apple admitted the battery meter bug of iOS 9 in iPhone 6. If you are an iPhone 6 user, you might came across this bug. If you change the time of your device or the timezone in any situation, the battery percentage won’t update anymore. It will be stuck on the current percentage and you will not be able to estimate your battery percentage. Though, the only way to know the real battery left is to go to the settings and check battery option. This sounds like a long task and not a practical one to check every time by going to the settings screen.
