    I was thinking that it doesn’t seem like eight months since the XS was officially released. I have enjoyed using mine and it seems to get better with each update.

    Normally by the end of the summer, I am usually ready to upgrade and start to get excited about the next latest and greatest model coming down the pipe.

    But this year seems to be different and I am still enjoying using my XS. The only thing I have changed was I have been using the device naked for the last few months and my screen still looks like new.

    Just thought I would start a thread and see if there are folks like me out there on the forums who feel the same as I do?

    Sometime seems like yesterday, sometime like a lifetime ago I’m very happy with my Xs and, honestly, I don’t know what Apple can bring in fall to make me wanna upgrade the phone. I’m more excited about all new software, I don’t even read the rumors about new phones.

    It definitely seems like 8 months for me. Battery (in typical apple fashion) has gone down the drain the last few months (and nothing has changed in apps/usage). Will be interesting to see how IOS 13 runs on it once they public beta launches. If the rumors of larger batteries in the new iphones end up being true, I may upgrade for that alone.

    Long time no chat! I recently got the XS and see even worse battery usage than my 14 month old X. I also have a Google pixel 3a that has been better in the battery life Dept than the XS.

    That is how I feel about my iPhone X. This is the longest I’ve kept an iPhone and with the exception of wanting to buy an iPhone X🅁, I still don’t have the urge or have gotten to the point of being impatient for the upcoming iPhone models. I’m sure the numerous leaks over the years have played a role to some degree, but my iPhone X is still a beast of a phone.

    I have owned an XS for seven months, and my battery quality according to settings is down to 98%, I feel this to be acceptable so far, providing the loss does not accelerate too much it will last my projected life for the phone.

    I’ve had my XS Max for 8 months and it’s still at 100. It’s battery has rarely been below 70% so that’s probably why.

    I'm in the same boat with my 8+! Although I do get the itch when new phones are announced, the 12 is rumored to be amazing and we really don't even know much about the 11 yet! LOL!

    Agree. The XS even from the start got worse battery life than my X did. It will be interesting to see if rumors are true about larger batteries going into the next iphone. I am seriously considering picking up the new XR when it is released if it does ship with a larger battery since that seems to be the only decent sized iphone that gets good battery life.

    Lol every iphone is rumored to be "amazing" with that being said, it is pretty well laid out what the 11 will look like (very similar to the current lineup but with a larger camera bump.

    That is good to hear. Depending on what the specs are like, I may pickup a new XR for the battery alone. I have heard nothing but good things about the XR battery.

    I'm on the Verizon iPhone upgrade program because I do like to get a new one every year.
    My battery life is getting worse and I'm starting to miss the bigger phone. I'll definitely go for the max version this year.

    I think the point Westiemom is trying to make is that she (I’m guessing she from the username >_<) wants an iPhone with a good battery life so that she doesn’t need to replace the battery every year for an additional $50 when her phone already cost so much. If the rumours are true, the iPhone 11 phones might be the first iPhones in several years to have long lasting battery lives (apart from Plus models)

    The only battery I have ever had replaced on any of my iOS devices was with my iPhone 6S, and Apple did it for free, since it was under recall. All my iOS device batteries have been great. Knock on wood...

    Lol fingers crossed. Hopefully iOS 13 will make the battery more efficient

    Although I’m more interested in iPad OS...multitasking should be a lot better on my iPad.

    As is my wish of any OS. Apple is very good at making operating systems very efficient, in my opinion.

    This is my experience as well. When I upgraded from my 6s to my 8+ I was astonished at the improvement. And, I am a heavy user.
