    For years I’ve been complaining about battery life. Apple has listened and I’ve actually struggled to kill this battery in a day. I took it off the charger at 5:00pm yesterday and it’s still at 45% with moderate normal everyday use. Some YouTube, few games, pictures, web, downloaded 10 movies, 2 hours at the gym playing music over Bluetooth, watched a movie, and text a whole lot. Good job apple!

    I have to agree, I took mine off this morning at 5:30 social media, took a few pictures, watched a video, played some games, emails etc, still at 61%. I also have the Note 10 plus and was impressed with that battery as I was getting a good 6 hours of screen on time and over 24 hours on a charge, but the Max is blowing it out of the water! Mom is getting a new Note phone soon LOL

    I know!!! I took it off the charger at around 4am. At around 3:30pm I it was 55% after pretty heavy use. I put it back on the charger then and took it off just 30 minutes or so later because I thought I was doing something tonight. Thunderstorms cancelled my plans. It’s now 6pm and at 80% still after that brief charge and use since then. I love it!

    I’m giving it a bit of a stress test today. I got up around 7:45 and have been on it nearly all morning browsing iMore, Reddit, and playing a lot of Words With Friends which usually is a huge battery drainer. At 12:12pm I’m sitting at 82%. On my X I’d probably be in the low 60% by now.

    Alright it’s now 9pm. I really put it through the ringer today since I didn’t have much to do. iMore, Reddit, Facebook, Words With Friends, streaming Netflix and the NFL app, tweaking some settings...I got this bad boy down to 26%. I was basically on my phone all day which is NOT normal usage for me. I’ll take it!!

    Had the Xr and battery life was great, so far it looks like the iPhone 11 is even better.

    Got mine Friday afternoon and got it all set up.

    Saturday morning took it off the charger at 8am and went on a local photo outing. I used this thing harder than I've ever used a smartphone before, TRYING to kill the battery.

    17 hours later (1am Sunday morning) I'm at 46%.

    While I am amazed at this, it's still a brand new phone. Let's see how it does 6 months from now.

    I agree. Been playing near nonstop with my max. Took it off charger at 6am on Saturday went to bed at 11pm. Still had 30% left. Stoked about battery life on a iPhone, who would have thought. Great job Apple

    So battery life, in general, has never been something I've concerned myself with as for the last 11 years I've been able to charge pretty much whenever I want on most days at work. Of course, when on vacation or something, when my schedule is different, charging is more of a concern but I usually do a pretty good job at preparing for those times.

    I plan on seeing how my battery performs today though. I'm going to use my device as I normally do, but instead of topping my device off mid day to ensure I make it through the rest of the day, I'm not going to charge at all. I plan on seeing how my device performs and how long I can go with typical use. I've heard great things about the battery.

    I agree, I use both Android and iOS devices and not one has been able to last me a whole day UNTIL this 11 Pro Max. I'm really impressed with what Apple has done with this device. Finally a device that can actually handle my work load.

    Yup. I am using the X (93% battery health) and with heavy use I have to use my battery case by about 3pm (starting the day at 7am). I’m considering upgrading

    I really think it's worth it, for the battery, cameras, and (for me), extra screen size.

    I’ve to agree. My Pro Max battery is outstanding. I’m always on my phone. Yesterday took it out of the charger at 7:00 am. My activities thought out the day:
    - Email / BB work
    - YouTube TV (2 hrs)
    - WhatsApp
    - Candy Crush (2hrs)
    - Text
    - Meetings (3 hrs)
    - Some browsing
    - Few pictures

    11 pm, my battery is 34%

    Gotta agree. The first day or two while it was still downloading my extravagant amount of photos from the cloud and I was messing with it constantly it was fairly average. The last 2 days it’s jaw droppingly good! I charge in the morning while getting ready for work and don’t charge again until the next morning. This morning it was still at 35% when I plugged it in. And I’m on Instagram A LOT. Lol!

    Ya, the battery life is worth the price of admission. The world class camera and striking hardware is second for once.

    To touch back with this thread, I took my phone off the charger at 7:00 this morning. Here I am at a quarter til 9 with 40% left. That’s awesome in my book. I’ve been streaming Spotify consistently from around 10 am until 4:30. Texting and checking emails. Web browsing intermittently. Two quick calls. And I tried out the new MARIO Kart game for around 10 minutes.

    Oh and I ran a few app updates.

    No complaints here and it’s great to know my phone will easily get through a full day with no issues.

    Wait...did I miss something? How did that get past me? Last I read JustMeD was very happy with his X...Laughing.
    Congratulations Sir.
    Yes. The battery life on my Pro Max has been nothing short of stellar.
