    And that will vary depending on your use. Facebook will use a lot. Keep a watch on your screen brightness, push notifications, and location services. Those will be your big battery users. I keep push notifications and location services off for Facebook.

    If you disable notifications for your apps you can increase your battery life.

    When I leave the house I have my iPhone in my left hand and my charger in my right hand lol. I have a charger in my truck and one at work. I've had every iPhone since the very first with the exception of the iPhone 4s. I always found battery life really sucked on the earlier iPhones. But I will say they have came soooooo far with battery life. My iPhone 7 plus battery life is really good and lasts me easily throughout the day. But through the years it has became a habit to always have a charger.

    I don't know how long you plan on keeping your 6s but I highly recommend AppleCare for several reasons. One huge one is screen replacement for 29 bucks!! Cracked broken accident or not 29 bones and a brand new screen. Also they will swap your phone for 99 bucks it accidentally damaged. Up to 2 times. Apple care covers your phone for 2 years from the date the phone was purchased. But another really cool perk is they will replace a battery free if it fails to carry a charge less than 80 percent. Though batteries are better and start off strong through time I find they die out. It's 129 bucks and worth every penny for the Apple care. I recommend reading up on it to see what all it covers.

    I would turn off your background activity on all your apps and dim your screen by 40-50%

    Turning off apps in multitasking doesn't save battery.

    Not if you turn off push notifications and location services for Facebook. Also turn off auto video for Facebook. That uses a lot of battery. Or, instead of in the browser, use the Facebook client, Friendly +. I love it. It works great and doesn't use battery like the Facebook app.

    Friendly Pro - One App for Facebook and Messenger by Friendly App Studio

    There's also a free version.

    Not real sure. I don't like Facebook notifications. I see what I need to see in the apps. But there's this in Friendly +.

    Never enabled it.
