    How long the battery lasts depend on one's usage. For me, my battery typically last all day and half the night on a single charge, and I typically charge my iPhone while I'm asleep. Your mileage may vary.

    Obviously the iPhone 7 Plus will last the longest. So that would be my first choice.
    When comparing the 7 to 6s. You looking at 90 minutes or so difference. Nothing to write home about.

    When will Apple start including 3000MAh batteries that allow us to use it without having the fear we'll run out of juice?

    Not until they start caring more about function over being paper thin.

    The battery life on my 7 Plus blows any other phone out there out of the water. They're going to do what it takes to sell phones and thinness is in high demand.

    I can get a good 24 hours out of mine. That's with push notifications on, Apple Watch connected and a workout or two during the day. I wouldn't say I'm a heavy user but certainly not light either.

    My iPhone 5S goes from 88% Battery to 38% overnight, doing nothing. When I plug it into my laptop to charge, it seems to take about an hour or more to fully charge. What's going on?

    I have a Mophie battery case on my 7 mainly because I use the wireless charging capability but I really never have to turn it on. When I do I end up with about 80% battery left when I go to bed.

    Eh no its not because of Thinness. If that was the case all phones would be sub 6mm thick. Not to mention moto and others can do it with being same thickness as apple. That is a weak excuse.

    So you're saying that Apple puts smaller batteries in its devices just because it feels like it? That doesn't add up to me.

    A simple Google search shows plenty of devices with 5.5" screens that are similar to or a tad thicker and have much larger batteries than the plus models. Apple always went small on batteries, hence the "wall huggers" commercials from samsung.

    Oh I'm not arguing that whatsoever; I'm just stating that there must be a reason behind their decision to have less battery capacity. What I don't get is what is using up the extra space if not battery (we know it's not a headphone jack!). There is literally not a square millimeter to spare. I'm intrigued what's going to happen if they allegedly make the bezel smaller.

    It can also be argued that Apple simply doesn't need to have the same battery size of Android counterparts in order to achieve the same--or better--battery life. If they can make up the difference in efficiency then who cares how big the battery is?

    Well overtime battery doesn't hold up as well. iPhones start out solid with battery but drop over time. The added battery would be very welcome, especially on the smaller iPhones

    I've been pleasantly surprised that I arrive home each evening with at least 60% battery life, this is even using Bluetooth with my Apple Watch. I must say the moment i arrive at work I'm on wifi, which I believe helps greatly.

    That's indeed a good battery life. What about the screen on time? Do you tend to use it much during the day?

    Very sorry for the late reply, just happened to notice a message on iMore. I need to figure out how to receive notifications immediately. To answer your question, I actually use my 7 heavily during work hours, as my exchange account is connected to the device.

    Heavily as in how many emails? Im on WiFi at work and barely get to 1pm what's your call time like for the day etc because that's pretty hard to believe especially after reading other iPhone 7 owners comments in various threads

    Androids require a much bigger battery to make it through the day. Apple has very power efficient processors so a big battery is not required to get the same usage as an Android.

    I have had my i phone 7 for about a month. It was fine until yesterday when the battery drained rather quickly. I turned off everything I could think of but it is still going down without use. How can I find out if something is running
