iPhone 6S Battery Life - How long does it last?

Let’s think about your next mobile. If you could pick and choose what new features to include, what would be top of your list? Retina scanning, perhaps? A smarter version of Siri? A DSLR-beating camera? When this question is put to real people (as opposed to techies), the answers are surprisingly boring.

Forget the gimmicks and focus on the basics: this is what comes through loud and clear from this 2013 survey reported in Forbes and more recently in a poll carried out by Cnet asking Apple fans what they want to see from the iPhone 6S. Improved battery life came top of users’ wish lists in both cases – suggesting that we’re still fed up of routinely running out of juice on the go.

The iPhone 6S and battery life: the same old story?


iPhone 6sAll of which brings us to the latest offering from Apple. The headline features on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus came in as predicted:  a 3D sensitive screen, revamped camera and faster processor.

But it didn’t take long for commentators to pick up on a vital stat that Apple neglected to fanfare; battery size. A tiny section of Apple’s launch video revealed that the iPhone 6S has a 1,715mAh battery. This doesn’t mean much in itself until you realise that it’s 5% lower in terms of capacity than the iPhone 6. Given that the new phone is more powerful than the last one, surely that makes it more power-hungry? So does this mean that iPhone 6S battery life is considerably shorter than last year’s model?

Not necessarily. Apple claims that the new processor under the phone’s bonnet (the ‘A9 chip’) is not only more powerful than the last, it also happens to be a lot more energy efficient. Features such as ambient light and proximity sensors and a low power mode also help to keep the phone going for longer.

So the upshot is that despite a smaller battery capacity, the iPhone 6S should have an identical battery life as the iPhone 6. Wait for the release date (25 Sep) and the results of benchmark testing to find out for sure.

How do you get your iPhone 6S battery to last for longer?

Do you find that your phone goes dead at the most awkward moments? Like when you’re on the road about to meet someone and you need to tell them you’re running late? Then there’s the moment when you wake up and realise you forgot to plug in your mobile the night before…

One perhaps slightly far-fetched rumour currently doing the rounds is that the iPhone 7 might be solar powered, making dead batteries a thing of the past. Back to the present and your best bet is to get your hands on your very own portable power source – and here it is:

powerbank

 

This is the SuperSpot 10,400mAh Powerbank, available to order online right now from Mobile Madhouse with free standard UK delivery. The way it works is easy: charge up your Powerbank to the max (this takes about 5 hours). Slip it into your bag and the next time you’re caught with a low phone or tablet battery, simply connect it to the Powerbank for an instant power-up.  A full Powerbank holds enough power to fully charge your mobile 5 or 6 times. For maximum convenience and twice the storage power, there’s also the SuperSpot Executive model.

Total damage-resistance tended to come second on the list of buyers’ most desired features. Sadly we’re a long way from that – but the good news is that Mobile Madhouse has already put together a selection of protective cases for the hot-off-the-press iPhone. Buy iPhone 6S cases and iPhone 6S Plus cases online right now and get amazing prices on designer accessories, tailor-made for this year’s best smartphones.
