At a time when flagships get the juice out of 4000mAh battery and more, it is quite surprising of Apple to pack close to 2000 mAh battery in its phones. However, that’s not an issue for the company as its phones are built to utilize the most of the processor and software, which makes their phones run for same or longer hours than its competitors.

It has new A10 Fusion chipset with four-core CPU including two high-performance cores, which optimizes the power consumption to give the new iPhone more battery life. Apple claims that iPhone 7 will last 2 hours more than iPhone 6s on regular usage. But hold on for an extensive battery review of the new iPhones, which would make things clearer.
