    Default I would like an improvement in the battery life.

    Iphone 7 should have a major improvements in battery life, like 2500-3000 Amh. I have seen many folks have a big problem with the battery life.

    Since apple seems to only care about making the device thinner, doubt that will happen. Apple could have made the 6/6+ a mm or two thicker and added a much larger battery and then wouldn't have the camera lens stick out either, but with apples history, we will never see a huge battery in an iPhone (and no the 6+ battery is on the small side itself compared to other devices similar sized.

    Sure!! What i see in apple products especially iphones, is that the only focus on the North Africa market eapecially US and forget that other parts of the world need their product.

    Battery life is the major problem especially to the countries where power is the problem. For example here in Tanzania most people move arround with their power banks because the life span of their battery is shorter.

    Personally, what matters when i buy a phone is the software part of it and the battery life. I love ios devices because they are smoother and a well improved UI, battery life is the problem with them.

    I have iphone 5 which lasts 3 hours with 3G which is shorter than hell.

    Honestly, i would like apple hear this cry for few of us iphone users.

    I second that, although I charge it at night, on my way to work and at work. It still ran out of juice sometimes during dinner and so on. Wouldn't mind a heavier device but give us more power!

    Get a 6+. I regularly get between 2.5 to 3 days from my phone easily. Currently last charged my 6+ 2 days and 18 hours ago, and still have 36% battery left.

    Isn't that more of a wireless carrier issue? Weak signals will indeed cause a strain on the battery, but why is that an Apple problem? Anyway, in regard to other countries "needing" Apple products, very few of us actually "need" Apple products or any other brand of smartphones, in my opinion.

    True, but how thin can/should a phone get? In a way the 6/6+ is a little too thin IMHO. I say make it a little thicker with a bigger, high capacity battery.

    Honestly, the 6 Plus's battery life is great for me...I'd rather have major focus in other areas vs. more battery life myself.

    This is why i love Blackberry so much Their devices are a little thicker but they put a proper battery inside. On their Leap which retails for $275 has a 2,800mAh battery which lasts for 25 Hours.
    Or their Z30 which is around $329 has a 2,880mAh

    Battery life is essential in todays world but Apple has got a bee in their bonnet about making their devices thinner and thinner which means battery life is going to suffer. Make the device thicker and put a nice 3,000mAh battery inside the 6s or 7

    Except that is not what Apple has done at all...this most recent iPhone is the thinnest, and also has the best batter life (especially the 6+) of any iPhone before it.

    iPhone 3g - (12.3 mm)
    iPhone 3gs - (12.3 mm)
    iPhone 4 - (9.3 mm) (Thinner)
    iPhone 4s - (9.3 mm)
    iPhone 5 - (7.6 mm) (Thinner)
    iPhone 5s - (7.6 mm)
    iPhone 6+ - (7.1mm) (Thinner)
    iPhone 6 – (6.9mm) (Thinner)

    What I'm trying to say is that each time apple releases a device, they always try to make it thinner. Which means there is less space for a battery which means the battery has to have less capacity than it would have (possibly had) if the device was the same size as before....

    Which brings me back to my comment, apple should stop trying to make things thinner and rather just make the processor and everything else smaller and increase the battery size?? maybe in wrong but thats just how i see it

    Apple could make their phone one half an inch thick and make a huge battery if they wanted. The point is, it's not necessary. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have excellent battery life - I can go well over a day on my iPhone 6 Plus - sometimes more than 2 days.

    Apple does appear to be obsessed with thinner devices, but that, in and of itself is not a bad thing. They have not sacrificed a useable battery for the sake of thinness.

    I can easily go more than a full day with heavy usage on my iPhone 6 Plus. No need to make the device thicker for additional battery life.

    I want a cell phone with 5000 mAh, LOL, at least two days' heavy usage is not a problem.

    I think if they did a virtual home button their be more space for bigger battery. Also they could trim down the bezels. Maybe force touch can be a stepping stone for a home button. But probably stick with current design language. Love to see a step up of current screen sizes with out making them bigger. Will get a 6s Plus this time coming from Note 3. Start watching the iPhone 7 rumors for next year.

    I would much rather have a larger battery over a thinner phone. I feel as if the iPhone 6s is thin enough, and that Apple should stop focusing on thinness if it begins to sacrifice functionality.

    I'd like to see a bigger battery, or a better battery. And yes, I've sent feedback to Apple.

    I have the 6+, and while initial battery life was great, less than two years later the battery only holds ~85% of it's original charge. When brand-spanking-new, my phone still had juice at the end of a day of heavy usage. Now, I have to either scale back usage or give it a partial charge to have anything left by bedtime.

    IMHO sacrificing a thin & light profile for a less-than-adequate battery is not a tradeoff I prefer to make.
