If you were to make an Apple device in 2017, would you want to be running on a battery pack that could keep the device going for hundreds of hours?
If you answered no, then this could be a serious problem.
Apple has long struggled with battery life.
The iPhone 5s had a battery that lasted just under three hours, but that was on a 5G network, and that’s not something that could last for long periods of time.
It could be that the iPhone 6 has an even bigger battery problem, and Apple is simply not using the technology it has in its existing devices.
The iPhone 6 Plus is a good example of this, as the company was able to squeeze out a respectable battery life out of its flagship device.
As you can see from the chart above, the iPhone SE and the iPhone X are in the same boat, with just under one and a half hours of battery life, respectively.
While the iPhone 7 is rumored to have a much larger battery, its battery capacity isn’t going to be as impressive.
The battery is rated at 905 Whr, or roughly 10 times what Apple claims for the iPhone 8 Plus, and it’s nowhere near as efficient.
Apple has struggled to make the iPhone 9 and iPhone X even more efficient, and now they have an even worse problem to solve.
In an interview with the Financial Times, Apple executive Craig Federighi said the company would make its phones even more power efficient in the near future.
The question is whether Apple will actually do it.
Apple has been working on making batteries in-house for a while now, and in an article published last month, Apple said it would begin using a company called Eneloop to make batteries for its devices.
It wasn’t clear what Enelop is doing for the batteries, or whether it has the expertise in the industry to do so.
If Apple does start using Enelops batteries, it will not be the first company to use it.
Earlier this year, Tesla made the batteries available to customers.
But Apple isn’t alone in its struggles to make devices that last as long as they can.
Last year, Nokia had trouble making its Lumia devices last as much as the iPhones and iPads, and many analysts and consumers are now wondering if Nokia’s efforts will have a similar effect on Apple’s iPhone.
The iPhone 7 Plus could potentially be a major step in solving the problem, as it could make the battery life of the iPhone a lot more sustainable.
If you’re worried about the battery on your iPhone, this could make it much easier to upgrade to the iPhone even if you do want to buy an iPhone SE.
