Do you own an iPhone? Have you noticed that the YouTube app is depleting your precious new phone’s battery life at an unusually quick pace?

Good news: YouTube says it’s fixed the battery bug in the latest version of the app.

In version 12.45 of the YouTube app, the company lists a single change: “Fixed an issue with battery usage.” In an email response, a YouTube spokesperson says the issue was actually fixed in version 12.44 of the app, but the release note was added to 12.45.

The company says the battery bug affected YouTube app versions 12.42 and 12.43, and wasn’t tied to any specific iOS device or system version.

Following the iPhone X’s worldwide launch on Nov. 3, users started noticing their phones were losing battery life quickly and overheating while streaming videos for short periods of time.

People were seeing their battery drain as much as 20 percent from streaming 10-15 minutes of video. Others saw less power draw, but it was still concerning enough for YouTube to look into.

Though many iPhone X users were the ones seeing the most battery drain (including me), the battery bug wasn’t limited to Apple’s latest phone. Some iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users also reported the same problems.

The app doesn’t specifically mention the fix is for the iPhone X, so other device users may see improvements as well. Personally, I’ve seen my iPhone X’s battery life not drain so quickly after updating the app.

If you’ve noticed these battery problems while using YouTube, now’s a great time to hit up the App Store and download the update.
