Your iPhone is designed to deliver an experience that is simple and easy to use. This is only possible through a combination of advanced technologies and sophisticated engineering. One important technology area is battery and performance. Batteries are a complex technology, and a number of variables contribute to battery performance and related iPhone performance. We created this information for those who would like to learn more. Compared with older generations of battery technology, lithium-ion batteries charge faster, last longer, and have a higher power density for more battery life in a lighter package. Rechargeable lithium-ion technology currently provides the best technology for your device. Learn more about lithium-ion batteries. One factor affecting battery life and lifespan is the mix of things you do with your device.
About lithium-ion batteries
After the debut of the iPhone in , the developers at Apple worked hard to make their products stand out from the competition by introducing sleeker designs, clearer screens and more powerful capabilities. Clearly, it was a successful mission; since that initial release, the company has debuted 21 iPhone models with popular, impressive features like Siri and fingerprint sensors. Battery drain, unfortunately, is a common problem for iPhone users , and if your phone is always running low despite your best charging efforts, you might need to take it to an Apple Store for repairs or a replacement. The iPhone 5s has a bigger battery at mAh, but it still showed only slight improvements compared to the 5. Tech Radar did not find a single charge lasting the 10 hours Apple claimed the phone would when in regular use. In , Apple introduced a mAh battery for the iPhone 6.
Trusted iOS feel and features at a bargain price
We take a closer look at the staying power of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X. Apple firmware sometimes slows down older iPhones with aging batteries to keep them from shutting down unexpectedly. That's the recent news that has the tech world abuzz. But we're checking in on a totally separate, completely unrelated, iPhone battery story. Of the newest models -- the iPhone 8 , 8 Plus and iPhone X -- which ones have the best battery life? I've used every one of the new iPhones for weeks, as everyday phones on everyday commutes. We've done a lot of CNET battery benchmarks, too. And here's the spoiler alert: iPhone battery life could be better. And it underlines something I keep feeling about iPhones in general: their battery life is functional, but not notably fantastic.
A nother year, another iPhone, except this time there are three of them. The iPhone 8 is fractions of a millimetre larger in every direction than the iPhone 7. Because of its design, the iPhone 8 looks and feels outdated compared to sleeker, more modern rivals, despite still being immaculately made. The large bezels top, bottom and at the sides make the iPhone 8 look almost retro, and not in a good way. The back of the iPhone 8 is glass, which inevitably makes it more fragile, but to what degree remains to be seen. Samsung and competitors have had similar systems on their smartphones for years, and it makes the screen more attractive but sacrifices colour accuracy.
