Increased battery capacity in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus increased their autonomy
Posted by: 19.06.2018
The autonomy of mobile gadgets today is one of the main critical indicators for many users. It is often not enough, given the high performance of the flagship devices. Favorite by many smartphones from Apple for a long time did not receive increased battery capacity. And now, with the release of the seventh generation, the situation has changed for the better.
Positive changes in iPhone 7
The company's management understands that there is a need to make the battery life as long as possible. As a result, the top-end compact iPhone 7 smartphone has now received a battery on the 1960 mAh. Compared with the previous version, it has increased by almost 200 mAh. If with the flagship models of other manufacturers, the situation is a little different, and the battery capacity is growing to the maximum, then the developers from Apple went the other way. The use of more economical processor and other "stuffing" has reduced the power consumption. However, it is still unclear what prevents to make the batteries even more capacious.
Increase battery capacity in iPhone 7 Plus
Interestingly, compared to the older model of the previous generation, the difference in capacity was only 150 mAh, which is equivalent to 6 percent. The overall size of the battery as a result is 2900 mAh, which is more like modern indicators. The use of A10 generation processors had a positive effect in this case too. Depending on the conditions of use, the device can work up to 30 percent longer than previous generation smartphones, which is definitely a positive result.
Features of the structure of the processor
Definitely, such a battery capacity would not be enough when using energy-intensive processors. It is the A10 generation processors that have a specific structure, in which the four cores are divided into two blocks. The first is the production part, represented by two powerful cores. The second is responsible for the implementation of simple tasks and ensuring the health in standby mode. The cores responsible for saving consume five times less energy than the productive ones, which gives an overall positive effect.
Test results for autonomy
For testing, specialists simulated situations that repeated the actual conditions of use. According to the average results, the seven can work for two hours longer, and an enlarged version of the iPhone 7 Plus can last an hour longer than previous models. Fans of "apple" technology are hoping that in new models, the batteries will be even more capacious, so that the devices could be called flagship in every sense of the word.
How to properly operate the battery
New technologies used in the design and manufacture of batteries for the iPhone, have increased their lifespan, as well as the number of charge / discharge cycles. In addition, they do not have the so-called memory effect, so the smartphone can be recharged for any indication of the remaining charge.
It is not recommended to use cheap Chinese external batteries for charging, as the power and voltage in them are very unstable, which can adversely affect the iPhone battery itself. There are cases when the built-in batteries because of this failed or even exploded.
