The iPhone 13 Battery Life Improvements Are Insane When Streaming Video

Apple made a lot of noise about the battery life improvements of its iPhone 13 lineup when it was announced on Tuesday, and now a new report shows that the new handsets will offer stellar watch times when streaming video.

Apple has already said that the iPhone 13 Pro Max will offer the longest-lasting battery ever in an iPhone, and that’s now increasingly clear, as spotted by MacRumors.

For example, Apple claims that when streaming video, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max last nine hours and 13 hours longer than last year’s equivalent models, respectively. Taking the same metric, the battery in the iPhone 13 mini manages 13 hours, which is longer than even the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Each new iPhone will last between three and 13 extra hours when streaming video, which is a big deal considering how much video we all stream these days.

Whether it’s Netflix, YouTube, Twitch, or Apple TV+, streaming video is notoriously bad on battery life. It seems Apple might have been able to fix that this time around.

The reason for this big improvement in battery life is likely down to the new A15 Bionic chip that powers these things. New chips often not only bring improved performance, but better battery management, too. That seems to very much be the case here.
