Apple Would Have Lied About the Battery of the Iphone, According To a Study

A new report says that Apple exaggerates the autonomy of certain iPhone models. The iPhone XR of Apple is the one that most moves away from the affirmations of the company, in spite of the high score received by the journalists who have analyzed it.

Apple "significantly" exaggerates the battery life of some iPhone models, according to a new report from the British consumer advocacy group Which ?.

The group has declared that it has tested 9 different models and has discovered that all of them have not lived up to Apple's promises, with a difference of between 18% and 51%. The iPhone XR was the one that moved further away from Apple's claims in terms of talk time, according to the findings.

Wich? It says it lasted 16 hours and 32 minutes, while the Apple website ensures that the iPhone XR can offer up to 25 hours of talk time.

Which? is an independent British consumer advisory group that tests and examines products in a variety of categories. Last month, he published the results of an investigation that found that Amazon is flooded with false criticism.

In a response to the Which ?, Apple has said the following:

"We rigorously test our products and support our claims about battery life. With close integration between hardware and software, the iPhone is designed to intelligently manage the use of power to maximize battery life. Our testing methodology reflects that intelligence. Which? He has not shared his methodology with us, so we cannot compare his results with ours. We share our testing methodology, which we publish in detail here. "

To carry out your tests, Which? He calculated how long the fully charged phones last when continuous phone calls are made and compared that time with the claims of the manufacturers.

The group says it has also conducted a similar test to see how long a mobile phone can last while surfing the Internet continuously on a single load. It also makes other tests before judging the life of a device's battery, according to the company.

Which? tested more than 50 mobile phones from popular brands such as Samsung, HTC, Sony and Nokia, in addition to Apple. The results discovered that HTC also exaggerated the battery life of their devices, noting that the average talk time of their products was 5% less than the one indicated by the Taiwanese technology company.

"At HTC we diligently test all aspects of the product's performance," the company states in a statement to Which? "Differences in configuration and testing environments can lead to variations in the talk time figures."

Brands such as Samsung, Nokia and Sony, however, underestimated the talk time of their respective devices, according to Which?

It is important to keep in mind that the battery life will always vary depending on how you use your mobile. Factors such as the brightness of the screen, the use of applications and the number of notifications you receive can affect the duration of your phone. If you are frequently in areas with poor coverage, you may also find that your battery is running out more quickly when you are looking for a signal.

The results of the test also seem to contradict the iPhone XR reviews of renowned technology sites such as CNET, AnandTech, and Tom's Guide, all of which rated the iPhone XR as excellent at the autonomy level. The three websites performed benchmark battery tests on the iPhone XR and found that it lasted longer than Apple's much more expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XR.
