Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus battery life stats are official

Apple has just unveiled the brand new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and we've got the first official stats about the battery life on the two new phones.

Battery life remains the same

It's easy to summarize the changes in battery life: there are none.

What are the exact numbers? We start with the iPhone 6s (and the numbers are exactly the same ones that we had on the iPhone 6).

Apple iPhone 6s official battery life stats:


Talk time: Up to 14 hours on 3G
Internet use: Up to 10 hours on 3G, up to 10 hours on LTE, up to 11 hours on Wi‑Fi
HD video playback: Up to 11 hours
Audio playback: Up to 50 hours
Standby time: Up to 10 days

Then, there is the iPhone 6s Plus, which has the exact same battery life numbers as the iPhone 6 Plus. And here is how that breaks down by types of usage.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus official battery life stats:


Talk time: Up to 24 hours on 3G
Internet use: Up to 12 hours on 3G, up to 12 hours on LTE, up to 12 hours on Wi‑Fi
HD video playback: Up to 14 hours
Audio playback: Up to 80 hours
Standby time: Up to 16 days

Yay now people can multitasking sort-of with Instagram and Facebook, the same way they always have on an iPhone.

You did a live chat with Apple to confirm? I'm not calling get you a liar, but Apple never reveals ram. At no even have they done so.

But The A9 Is A 14nm Soc And Its Still Not More Efficient Than The 20nm A8, That Doesn't Seem Right Now Does it. How Could The Battery Life Be The Same, Just Doesn't Make Any Sense Unless The Battery Capacity Of The 6s/6s plus Is Smaller than The 6/6 plus. If So That's Just Dumb.

I think the problem is that Force Touch needs a bit of battery AND the Always-On Siri will also take a toll on the battery life...

one thing I like about apple and this new devices is that they don't give a f*k wat other oems have implemented on their 2015 devices...they just confident on wat specs they hv implemented and I guess they have fully optimised them to match other oems specs. .eg camera with 2.2 f and 12mp ..and used software algorithms to stand against Sammy 1.9f or LG's 1.8f 16mp or Sony 23mp...all wat I mean is that Apple has tried to be itself and not follow or copy others way but implement their own ....a big lesson for oems eg Sammy to just abdicate going apple way in their devices and just be themselves and give consumers wat they've been known for specs. ..otherwise apple will still reap big even if no upgrade to their devices while others use a lot of effort to copy and still don't win or be the 'apple' brand they trying hard to be....

Yeah Cause They'll Use Some Weird Resolution That Will Be Higher Than 1080p But Less Than 1440p.

I always said resolution is not a spec that requires upgrading. It would not improve my experience at all - my 5s is sharp! Now if I wanted to get a VR sort of equipment - then I see a benefit! I don't think specs are the epitome of future tech - I think overall UI as an extension and ease of ones abilities is what will differentiate future devises. Apple proven over and over that specs matter very little of you know what you're doing. With android it's easier to throw more ram and cores than to untangle the mess that is android just to take advantage of hardware properly.

Doesn't matter as long as both ways deliver good experiences.

It's not like that they are confident. The average consumer of Apple don't know anything about specs. They just believe Apple is unique and superior than others. Eg. if they put the same 8mp and 1.2mp camera on iPhone 6s again, it will still be sold like hot cakes. ;)

On a 16 GB phone that's one video of the same thing over and over for 14 hours. Sorry but I had to troll, 16GB isn't even funny. Good thing Apple pushed 64 and 128 for next tier a while back. Instead of what it used to be 32 and 64.

Support is if you have a problem that needs dealing. Knowing exactly what a product is made out of doesn't count, unless it's food because it might have food allergies.

Engineers know what's inside a product, not the call centre. Lol

Still, it should be 2gb.
