How long will the iPhone 7 and 7 plus battery last?

battery iPhone 7

Seeing that today's topic is batteries, charging cycles and the Apple Watch, I have decided to end the day by commenting on details about the iPhone 7 and its giant version. We are already a few weeks away from the keynote, although nothing is yet known about the exact date. They could present us with many things or disappoint us, as they did in March. But without a doubt, one of the strengths of the flagship device will be the battery.

How long will our iPhone 7 last without charging it? This is what to expect considering the rumors and news we have seen in recent days.

The iPhone 7 will boast in battery

It may not be the most innovative if it doesn't change the way the Home button works or how it looks, but few can beat it when it comes to battery. Today we have talked a lot about the supposedly leaked batteries of the Apple Watch 2. Well, this will have an incredible 35% more capacity. The same was said of the iPhone, although the percentage was a little lower. The iPhone 7 is said to arrive with up to 15% more battery physical, which is not little. Let's see below how many extra hours of use it could mean and what it would translate into when using it in our day to day life.

Since I have the 4,7-inch model of the iPhone 6 and this is the one that gives more problems in duration, I will use it as an example. On the other hand, the plus lasts much longer. That is why I prefer to focus on talking about the little one. Currently Apple promises up to 10 hours of continuous use. I have come to experience between 7 and 8 with normal use. Yes to this We add 15% to it, we could see a duration of between 8 and 9 hours, or even 10, but not only on physical battery does the iPhone live.

It should be taken into account that the optimization of the operating system, the battery saving mode and the processor greatly influence the time that the active iPhone will last without going through the plug. With the improvements that we see in iOS 10 and in the iPhone 7 could easily be reached 10 hours of continuous use, and it would even try to reach 11. That in relation to the 4-inch model. Regarding the plus model, 7 hours of continuous use could be reached.

Every day with a more durable iPhone

Not only in resistance to water and shocks, it will also be durable on battery. If Apple added a faster charge and a possible wireless charger, the difference from iPhone 6s to 7 would be brutal. We could charge the plus every two days, and the little one would last us all day using it non-stop.

They said that this generation would not be innovative or surprise us with big changes in design, but really they will modify the rear bands and may introduce new colors. We don't need much more for now, we can last another year with the current clean and beautiful design. Right now the priority is to improve the battery and the specifications, to make the iPhone 7 the ideal device.

I have great confidence in this terminal and I think will be able to far exceed the sales obtained by iPhone 6s and 6s plus. If the previous one was a good generation, this year's will be even more so. Let Samsung tremble, because although those of the bitten apple will not be able to recover or gain much market share, they will recover their good reputation and will surprise us properly with an iPhone 7 and 7 plus far superior to everything we have seen before.

To this is added an incredible accessory such as the Apple Watch 2, of which we have seen many interesting news and rumors. Everything indicates that this year Apple will not innovate in design either, but it will improve the battery of everything, which is what users demanded the most from the company with the bitten apple. It will be a great keynote with very good products, we just hope it will not be delayed too long for production problems. Let's see if they say something this week.

    the false one that the duration is 10 hours, because I only lasted 5 hours maximum playing light games.

  2.   Juan Carlos said

    I have the iphone 7 and it lasts between 4 to 5 hours with normal use.

  3.   Robert Calabria said

    I have a new iPhone 7. I have to charge it three or more times every 16 hours of use. Not even close to the 8 to 10 hours that the article talks about.
