iPhone battery life

Replaced my old iPhone SE with a shiny new 11pro. Have to say the battery life is a big step up. Phone has been on since 6.30am, lots of checking emails and browsing and an hour or so if games and it’s still at 61%. The SE would have been sub 20 without a top up

I don’t suppose that normally the fact that a mobile phone battery holds a useful charge from getting up time to going to bed time would be worth a post. But I appreciate that for an iPhone owner it is a bit of a novelty.

Hopefully it will happen again tomorrow :grinning:


Give it 3 months and it’ll be as shit as your old phone.


My se just died
Shame as I much prefer the smaller size over these ridiculous new ones, plus I’m not due an upgrade for a year

That’s partly why I got the pro, it’s not enormous.

If it’s the battery that has died and your not bothered about the latest model it might be worth having a new battery fitted by Apple. It was £29 for a new one for my iPhone 6s but has gone up to £49 now. But when they did it theyCouldn’t get the battery out so they gave me a brand new replacement phone. It’s apparently quite common as the battery are stuck in with adhesive. But worst case would be £49 for a new genuine Apple battery.

Ta, worth knowing

I’ve given my old one to my mum and dad for FaceTime so battery life won’t matter much

I’m going to get Ali the new SE to replace the old one. The two years interest free credit that Apple offer is a good deal.


I have a cheapish monthly tariff, so will see what they offer next year, or just go sim only

I’m sim only with Giffgaff. They use the o2 network. I wouldn’t want a contract again.

I just got a Xs on a cheapish deal from Tesco. Battery life seems quite good. The replacement battery cost doesn’t seem too bad.

The XR I have gets charged every two days. Seriously impressive battery life.
