    So I own a XS Max, and when I originally ordered it I was skeptical about its 3174mAh battery, but having owned iPads and having family members that used nothing but iPhones for most of the past decade without much complaints about battery so I decided to jump on.

    Now typically my XS Max gets me 7.5-8hours SOT on average with normal mode, which is fantastic I get a full days usage and still have juice when I go to bed.

    These last few weeks I decided to throw my XS Max in LP Mode due to the more aggressive rolling blackouts we have in the country. I am shocked at the results!

    Some how Low Power Mode is squeezing out an extra +2hours SOT with all my heavy usage giving me 10hours SOT.
    This is despite my incredibly heavy usage of Social Media(FB, Insta, WhatsApp, Twitter etc...), Apple Music, YouTube etc...
    I also have my Apple Watch constantly synced. Have GMail and Outlook also going, these also push to my Watch and I have my Messages and Calls also syncing to my iPad.

    Here is my usage from yesterday:



    Take note I often go to bed with about ~30-35% battery left, I simply cannot kill the phone, it’s absolutely insane! Great job by Apple here, because from what I have seen all LP Mode does is limit SOME background activities but not all (as can be seen with WhatsApp and YouTube).

    These are numbers one gets on most Android flagships with +4100mAh batteries in Power Save Mode.

    I want to see how much SOT I can get but I doubt my body will allow this

    Yes, Apple has made great progress with battery life. My 11Pro (work phone) battery is damned hard to kill as well.

    If you scroll to the top of the page, you'll see that this is the iPhone subforum, which has been here for years. Many CB members carry more than one device. They can discuss iPhones here.

    I owned a xs max for about 8 months and battery life got really bad. Got an 11 pro max 256 and it lasts me throughout the day with heavy usage. Very impressed

    Got a 11 Pro Max 256GB to after my XS Max was stolen and yep, the 11 Pro Max is leagues above, it’s incredible how long it lasts, I am in bed now it’s 11PM and I am on 42%, on a week day I got to bed with about 50-55% battery.
