Apple Boosts Battery Life in iPhone 15 Series, Addresses User Concerns

February 21, 2024 – Apple has recently addressed concerns regarding battery life in its latest iPhone models, releasing new data that reveals improved longevity compared to previous generations.

According to updated support documents, the batteries in the iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max are designed to retain 80% of their original capacity after 1000 complete charge cycles under ideal conditions. This is a significant improvement compared to Apple’s previous claim that all older iPhone models could maintain 80% of their battery capacity after just 500 charge cycles.

The enhanced battery life in the iPhone 15 lineup means that it will take longer for the maximum capacity to drop to 80% compared to previous models. However, Apple has stated that it is “investigating” the battery life of older iPhone models, suggesting that comparisons based on the latest test parameters may still be subject to change.

Some users have expressed skepticism about the improved battery life, pointing out that the high cost of replacing batteries (reportedly around $700) outweighs any benefits of increased longevity. These users argue that reducing the price of battery replacements would be a more effective way to alleviate concerns about battery life.

Meanwhile, many iPhone 14 users have reported experiencing significant battery degradation within just one year of use, with some claiming that their battery capacity has dropped to less than 90%. These reports have fueled concerns about the overall battery performance of Apple’s smartphones and the company’s approach to addressing these issues.
