After the recent release of the iPhone 15, battery tests have been conducted to determine the performance of the new devices. Apple had emphasized the efficiency of its 3nm A17 Pro chip, leading to high expectations for the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max in terms of battery life.
In a test conductedMrwhosetheboss, it was found that while the iPhone 15 Pro Max outlasted all previous iPhones, the iPhone 15 Plus emerged as the winner in terms of battery life. The iPhone 15 Plus achieved over 13 hours of screen-on time, making it the longest-lasting iPhone in history.
Apple provides battery life statistics on their tech specs page, measuring the duration of continuous audio and video playback. According to Apple’s numbers, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has the longest battery life for streaming video playback, lasting 25 hours compared to 20 hours for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Plus. However, when it comes to audio playback, the Pro Max is rated for 95 hours, while the Plus boasts 100 hours. It should be noted that these numbers are not necessarily indicative of real-world battery life, as everyday phone usage is typically more demanding than just watching videos or listening to music.
Mrwhosetheboss aimed to simulate a more practical daily usage pattern in their test, involving activities such as watching TikTok videos, conducting Zoom video chats, recording videos, and playing games. The phone’s screen remained on throughout the test until the battery was completely drained.
In the previous generation, the iPhone 13 Pro Max held the title for the best battery life, but the iPhone 15 models have surpassed their predecessors. Among the iPhone 15 models, the Pro died first, followedthe base iPhone 15. The 15 Pro lasted for 9 hours and 20 minutes, while the base iPhone 15 endured just under 10 hours. The Pro Max outperformed them both, providing an impressive 11 hours and 41 minutes of battery life. The real standout, however, was the iPhone 15 Plus, which achieved an astounding 13 hours and 19 minutes in the test.
In comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max managed 11 hours and 19 minutes of battery life. These results indicate a significant improvement in battery performance with the new iPhone 15 models.
Overall, the battery life of the iPhone 15 models is commendable, with the iPhone 15 Plus taking the lead as the device with the longest-lasting battery. These findings provide valuable information for potential buyers who prioritize battery life in their smartphone choices.
