Here’s iOS 13.6.1 battery life drain comparison on iPhone and iPad devices compared to previous versions. How’s it working for you?

Whenever Apple releases a new version of iOS there is one question that can often be enough to stop some people from updating straight away – how does the update affect battery life?

As always, that’s something that YouTuber iAppleBytes set out to discover. And discover, they have.

By running battery tests an iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and 2020 iPhone SE, we can get a pretty decent idea of how things will pan out when you update your own device.

The test itself was run a few days after iOS 13.6.1 was installed in order to make sure the devices had plenty of time to rebuild their caches and whatnot, too.

This video was shot 4 days after iOS 13.6.1 was installed, so it had time to settle in. I have seen many comments that it takes about a week for battery performance to optimize itself after an iOS update. I have always been skeptical of this statement as I have never personally had bad battery life right after I update. If I restore and download backup from iCloud well then that is another story. So I decided to run the battery test 4 days after I updated them. In those 4 days they were just idling with power connected. So lets run the battery test again, and see if we will get some different results this time around.

All devices were set to 25% display brightness with auto-brightness disabled.

You can check the full speed test video out for all of the results based on the device you’re interested in. Things are a little bit all over the place here, suggesting your mileage may well vary once iOS 13.6.1 has been installed!
