Ahead of Apple’s Wednesday launch event, rumours were pointing out towards the presence of a smaller battery in the new iPhone than the ones in current generation. Now, a new promotional Apple video has seemingly confirmed the claims. Apple does not usually provide such specifications.
A new Apple promo video on YouTube for the new iPhone 6s shows a 1715mAh built-in lithium-ion battery in a schematic diagram. To recall, iPhone 6 came with an 1810mAh battery, a fact revealed only after a teardown of the smartphone.
While the real world difference is just 95mAh; the company’s on its product page capacity claims both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s offer identical battery backup.
According to Apple, the iPhone 6s offers a talk time of up to 14 hours on 3G and up to 240 hours of standby time. Furthermore, the handset is listed to deliver an Internet usage time of up to 10 hours on 3G and up to 11 hours on Wi-Fi. The iPhone 6s can offer HD video playback time of up to 11 hours and audio playback of up to 50 hours. All the above claimed figures are same as the iPhone 6.
The price for the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus remain unchanged compared to their predecessors at launch. The iPhone 6s 16GB will be available at $649 (approximately Rs. 43,000); $749 (approximately Rs. 50,000) for the 64GB, and $849 (approximately Rs. 56,500) for 128GB model. The iPhone 6s Plus will be available at a starting price of $749 for the 16GB model, $849 for the 32GB model, and $949 (approximately Rs. 63,000)for the 128GB iPhone 6s Plus (all US prices).
The biggest addition to both the new iPhones is the new 3D touch, which is a pressure-sensitive touch input technology that lets you perform different actions dependent on the amount of pressure you put. The cameras on the new iPhones have also been upgraded. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus come with a new 12-megapixel rear camera that also supports 4K video recording. There is a 5-megapixel front camera as well.
