Users and journalists continue to test the new iOS 14 operating system, which Apple released a few weeks ago. Following the speed testing of the iPhone 6s on iOS 14, there is a clip showing the autonomy of the smartphone on the new platform.
iOS 14 is available as a free update for iPhone 6s and newer models. Thus, the iPhone 6s is the “oldest” smartphone, which can get iOS 14 officially. It should be noted that the iPhone 6s debuted five years ago – in September 2015. Initially, it was released with a pre-installed iOS 9.
This video was published on YouTube channel called iAppleBytes. The video compares the battery life of the iPhone 6s with the installed iOS 14 to iOS 13.7, 12.1, 11.4.1 and 10.3.3. All smartphones were charged 100% at the beginning of the test, the automatic brightness setting was disabled, the brightness is set to 25%. The battery status was also optimal – the maximum capacity of all devices was 100%.
As it turned out, the most “greedy” is iOS 12.1 – it managed to discharge the iPhone battery up to 20%, while the rest of the test participants had another 50%. The record-breaker in terms of duration of work was iOS 10.3.3, released in the summer of 2017.
Completely smartphones have run out of power during this time:
- iPhone 6s with iOS 10.3.3 – 3 hours 32 minutes;
- iPhone 6s with iOS 11.4.1 – 3 hours and 13 minutes;
- iPhone 6s with iOS 12.1 – 1 hour and 53 minutes;
- iPhone 6s with iOS 13.7 – 3 hours 3 minutes;
- iPhone 6s with iOS 14 – 3 hours 4 minutes.
