The new iPhone 15 Plus set a record for battery life, surpassing all previous iPhone models. After the iPhone 15 went on sale worldwide, the first battery test results confirmed the superiority of the new model.
Apple has heavily touted the performance of its new 3nm A17 Pro chip. This has raised high expectations for the battery life of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models. In tests by blogger Mrwhosetheboss, the Pro Max lasted longer than all previous iPhone models. The real revelation, however, was the iPhone 15 Plus, which lasted more than 13 hours with the screen active, setting a new record among all iPhones.
Apple’s official specs page lists battery life when continuously listening to audio and watching videos. According to the company, the iPhone 15 Pro Max lasts the longest when watching streaming videos – 25 hours, versus 20 hours for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Plus. However, when listening to audio, the Pro Max model lasts 95 hours, while the Plus reaches a record 100 hours. While these numbers give a general impression, actual battery life may vary as daily phone usage includes a variety of tasks other than just watching videos or listening to music.
Blogger Mrwhosetheboss’s tests aimed to simulate real-world usage of the device throughout the day: watching videos on TikTok, video chatting on Zoom, recording videos and playing games. The phone screen stayed on until the battery was completely drained. The previous leader in battery life was the iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, tests showed that all iPhone 15 models outperformed their predecessors. Specifically, the iPhone 15 Pro lasted 9 hours and 20 minutes, the base model iPhone 15 lasted almost 10 hours, the 15 Pro Max lasted 11 hours and 41 minutes, and the 15 Plus held a record of 13 hours and 19 minutes.
Battery testing results for the new iPhone 15 models confirm Apple’s commitment to improving the performance and efficiency of its devices. The most powerful iPhone 15 Plus sets new standards for consumers who value long battery life. This could be a key factor for many users when choosing a smartphone in the near future.
