Is the New iPhone As Powerful As It May Seem?by 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

Apple mania seems to have subsided a little, at least for now, following a barnstorming event unveiling the new iPhone Xs range a few weeks ago. The new handsets in the brand’s line promise to be the most powerful and their toughest ever – which for some fans and smartphone aficionados means that hopefully – they’re both super-resistant and that the battery life on board is worth the price tag. Tests, of course, have been taking place in recent days in an effort to ascertain whether or not consumers should pay over $1000 for the newest, most powerful devices – and they seem to be worth taking a closer look at.

Recent testing appears to suggest that the iPhone Xs and Xs Max simply aren’t hacking it when it comes to battery life. Battery power has been a sticking point for many iPhone users across the years, with the devices reportedly swallowing up more juice and getting slower as time wears on for the smartphones. However, Apple recently advised during their big reveal event that the Xs would have 30 minutes more battery power than the iPhone X, and that the Xs Max would have 90 minutes more. If recent, thorough testing is anything to go by, such claims should apparently be placed under the microscope.

Testing on behalf of popular tech website Tom’s Guide suggests that the Xs in fact only lasted 9 hours and 41 minutes in comparison to the X, which lasted 10 hours and 49 minutes under the same conditions and testing. The Xs Max, too, appeared to run short of its predecessor, with a battery life of 10 hours and 38 minutes recorded. The website also confirmed that the device, perhaps crucially, underperformed compared to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Huawei P20 Pro, the latter of which recorded an impressive 14 hours and 13 minutes of life during testing.

Perhaps even more telling is the fact that Tom’s Guide found the iPhone Xs’ battery performance to fall short of the current device market’s average of 9 hours and 48 minutes in battery life. While the Xs Max just outlived this, it seems that Apple fans may have battery woes to worry about for some time to come. However, there has yet to be an official response from Apple at this time, so we will have to wait and see how this one transpires.
