Latest iOS 16.1 Battery Drain Test Shows Little Improvements Over iOS 16.0.3 on New and Old iPhone Models
iOS 16.1 brings various new additions that Apple initially announced at its WWDC event. It includes Live Activities, a battery indicator on additional iPhone models, and much more. A new video has been shared on YouTube by iAppleBytes that showcases battery life performance on new and older iPhone models running iOS 16.1.
The battery drain test was conducted on the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone SE, and iPhone 8, running Apple's latest iOS 16.1. The YouTuber used Geekbench to test the battery life performance. All iPhones were charged at 100 percent and running on 25 percent screen brightness with auto-brightness turned off. Lastly, all iPhones are connected to the same WiFi network. Check out the video below for more details.
As can be seen in the video, the iPhone 8 and iPhone SE lasted for about 3 to 3.5 hours before the entire battery drained. However, the iPhone XR and iPhone 11 lasted for about 5 hours and 45 minutes. The iPhone 13 scored the most, with 9 hours and 12 minutes of total run time. You can check out more details in the video.
In contrast to iOS 16.0.3, iOS 16.1 does not bring any major battery life improvements to the table. If you are having issues with your iPhone, we recommend trying these battery life fixes.
