Apple Bytes recently uploaded a new video to YouTube that compares the battery life of new and vintage iPhone models running iOS 16.1. The latest version of iOS 16.1 from Apple was used to conduct the battery drain test on the iPhone 13, iPhone 12, iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone SE, and iPhone 8. The YouTuber evaluated the battery life performance using Geek bench. All iPhones had a full charge and were set to a 25% screen brightness setting with auto-brightness disabled.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone SE lasted for roughly 3 to 3.5 hours before the entire battery depleted, as can be seen in the video. The iPhone XR and iPhone 11, on the other hand, lasted for roughly 5 hours and 45 minutes. With a total runtime of 9 hours and 12 minutes, the iPhone 13 achieved the highest rating. iOS 16.1 does not offer any significant battery life enhancements over iOS 16.0.3.
