    It had been first rumored that the 4.7" iPhone 6 would get a 2,100 mAh battery to power the larger 4.7" screened iPhone 6. But recent leaked battery photos show it to be 1,810 mAh. That's a modest increase over the 1,560 mAh found on the iPhone 5s. I'm tech ignorant about these batteries. If the 1,810 mAh is it, do you think it enough to power the larger 4.7" screen?

    I don't know, but if the recent leaks are true then it's safe to assume that it is. In any case, we'll know soon enough....

    Well from what I've gathered from the info on the A8 chip, it's basically supposed to be focused on speed (obviously) with a big focus on power management and energy efficiency. This is all rumors though, but we'll find out soon enough. I'd assume it will be enough though

    You'll need a new Mophie if you get the iPhone 6.

    Indeed. Hopefully it'll have increased battery life

    It will not be! New iPhones will have Metal API and a powerful backend for it, much powerful CPU and mem, and plus they will have bigger screens. So 1810 mAh battery would not be sufficient for them.

    Well the processor will obviously be more power efficient, so I would assume it will have sufficient battery life, but we'll see.

    Not if you actually use the device. It will be like the 5s which with any type of good usage it needs charged multiple times a day. That's only real gripe I have with the 5s

    This would be a great time to make a super thin battery case for iPhone

    Even the current battery in the 5S is not enough if all features of the phone are turned on. Always need to turn off some features in or there to have a descent life out of the battery. The next coming iPhone will have a worse issue with battery unless you decide to use it as a phone, or unless you go mophie.
    Activating location services, apple store nearby services, spotlight fully enable, 4g activate and other new features coming along with ios 8, noway 1800mah is enough for 8h of usage time at least.

    And that is one of the main things apple liked to bash android devices for was having to turn off features to get good battery life. Just wish apple would put more focus on battery and less on paper thin. I have yet to hear someone complain that their iPhone is too thick. Make it iPhone 4s thickness with a huge battery.

    The size of the battery and the chip are important but do is OS and app optimisation.
    Let's see how they do this.
    Battery life is a huge deal for me. I hope I can still make it through one work day as I do now.

    Just from observing, I have noticed a lot of people that do have problems with the battery life. How many hours of screen on time do you have? Just curious to see how everyone's usage is on them.

    I am usually lucky if i am able to get 4.5 hours of usage, if even that much. I will post a screen shot tonight once it goes back on the charger.

    I usually get around 14 hours during the week. I get around 16-24 when I'm on wifi at home.

    Interesting. There are a lot of variations in battery life. Some people can get 7+ hours, and some, like yourself, get less than 5 hours.

    What are some other settings you use? Do you use max brightness and Bluetooth all the time or something?

    Brightness is turned down to around 30%, background refresh, Bluetooth, location settings all off.

    It's all in what you do and how long you do it. I normally get about 8.5 to 9 hours per charge with "Reduce Transparency" toggled on. 7 to 7.5 with it toggled off. Most of what I do is forums, some Facebook, Words with Friends, photo work. I'm on my phone almost non stop.

    I don't do streaming. I mainly do messaging through mail and loads of BBM. Loads of FB. Forums. Paying bills. Shopping.
    Nothing turned off really. Brightness low.
    About four hours of voice but two of those I might already be in the car and if I am I plug in.
