At the long-awaited keynote, Apple announced the latest iPhone as well as their foray into wearable technology with the iWatch. The latest iPhone, as always, boasts many impressive new features – but our main concern is how the iPhone 6 battery life stacks up.
All models use a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which charge via USB connected to a computer or an adaptor. But the larger size of the newer models has allowed Apple to include a larger battery to improve the battery life of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Check it out:
|3G Talk Time||24 hours||14 hours||10 hours||10 hours||8 hours||7 hours|
|Standby Time||16 days||10 days||10 days||10 days||8 days||12.5 days|
|3G Internet Use||12 hours||10 hours||8 hours||8 hours||6 hours||6 hours|
|LTE Internet Use||12 hours||10 hours||10 hours||10 hours||N/A||N/A|
|Wi-Fi Internet Use||12 hours||11 hours||10 hours||10 hours||9 hours||10 hours|
|Video Playback||14 hours||11 hours||10 hours||10 hours||10 hours||10 hours|
|Audio Playback||80 hours||50 hours||40 hours||40 hours||40 hours||40 hours|
Clearly, the iPhone 6 Plus battery life is a big improvement from the previous models – however, the regular model doesn’t boast a major upgrade from the 5 or even the lower-tier 5c. If battery life is your major incentive to upgrade, consider the 6 Plus your best bet. But if you’re still on a 4 or 4s, you’ll see a huge improvement with any of the newer models in 3L and LTE usage.
