Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus battery life
posted by Victor H. / Sep 07, 2016, 3:01 PM
Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with the longest battery life ever on an iPhone. Apple says that this means that you can now get an average of 2 hours more out of the regular iPhone 7 and up to 1 hour more with the iPhone 7 Plus.
The iPhone 7 Plus remains still the longer lasting of the two, with a larger battery, as it consistently lasts more in various test. While you get around 40 hours of wireless audio playback on the iPhone 7, on the iPhone 7 Plus you get some 60 hours, and 3G talk time is also substantially longer on the iPhone 7 Plus: 21 hours vs 14 hours on the iPhone 7.
In other areas like browsing and video playback, though, the difference between the two is minimal: you get 13 hours of LTE browsing on the Plus model and 12 hours on the regular iPhone 7, while wireless video longevity stands at 14 hours on the Plus and 13 hours on the smaller one. You have all the figures in the chart right above, and you can also see the notable improvements in battery life that come with the 7.
No mention of quick chargingWhat is sorely missing from those charts, however, is a mention of quick charging. Recent iPhones take a couple of hours to recharge their batteries fully, while other rival phones take half that time, and that's becoming more and more of an irritation. Some have claimed that quick charging does inflict damage to the battery cells, so we're curious to hear from Apple whether that has been a reason it's withholding this otherwise cool feature from its latest device.

As long as it won't explode the iPhone 7 is the king of smartphones for the next year.

You don't even know what kind of accident will happen with an unreleased phone. So like go get some sense, or something.

I may not be an iBoy.. ..when you see apple not adopting a new tech very fast.. it want to investigate and be sure it's uselfulness or find ways to fine tune it... they may take too long but I bet the engineers at apple are *cautiously intelligent.. the fast battery charge tech maybe a superb tech ..but though I use devices with it ..i think it was premature with the battery tech of today... apple may adopt it when solution on new battery tech are found

Bm888 True. But Apple was able to achieve explosion using their own proprietary charging mechanism (not using fast charging yet lol)http://www.telegraph.co.uk/new

They re replacing them, so what? It still has a better camer, more software, and better screen than iPhone 7 even the water resistant is better and storage options. Hate on the note 7 merits and compare the 2 instead of playing the recall card.

Yes it is the king for next 1 year . No doubt. But the only important feature it lacks is that of fast charging. Otherwise, it is a very well balanced smartphone.

Fast charging degrades the battery fast, I don't need it in my iPhone.

As long as smartphones use Li-ion batteries, there's no solution for that. It's basic chemistry. There are a few basic principles that make Li-ion batteries deteriorate faster under certain circumstances. That's why I have quick charging off most of the times and I rarely let the battery go outside the 30% to 90 % charge. Nor do I charge it for longer periods.

According to battery university who did extensive testing and wrote a billion word article the sweet spot for Li-Ion batteries is 40-60% charge. They also found that EVERYTHING degrades a Li-Ion battery. Basically it starts to degrade before it's even manufactured.
