Apple admits iPhone 6s, 6s Plus battery life may vary based on TSMC processor or Samsung.com

After some discussion over if the variation between iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus versions made with Samsung or TSMC processors may affect battery life, Apple has provided its take on the issue:

Our testing and client data reveal the genuine battery life of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, even taking into consideration changeable element differences, change within only 2-3% of each other.”

That 2-3% change could be better than some imagined, each included, contemplating how limited battery life on iPhones can be with reasonable to large use. Apple’s complete statement (via Ars Technica) really addresses the kind of battery checks several testers reference when measuring operation as being unrealistic:

Specific manufactured laboratory tests which operate the central processing units using a significant workload that is constant before the battery depletes are unrepresentative of real world use, given that they devote an unrealistic timeframe at the best CPU efficiency state. It’s a deceptive method to quantify real world battery life.

However, some standard evaluations have flagged some quantifiable differences between iPhones produced with processors from different makes including changing operation scores and cooling system amounts.

In practice, these differences are likely not apparent in exactly the same manner as the kinds between iPhone generations yr-over-yr, but Apple does admit the existing iPhone 6s and 6s Plus versions aren’t fully on level with each other even in the event the difference is little.

Evaluation from Chipworks exposed yesterday the Samsung-produced A-9 processor which powers some iPhone versions in 2013 is 10% smaller compared to TSMC-made variant. Apple elected to get a mixture of providers for its ASeries processor this year probably to ensure assembly demand.

Apple’s complete statement below:

Together with the Apple-developed A-9 processor in iPhone 6s Plus or your iPhone 6s, you will get the most innovative smartphone processor on the planet. Every processor we send matches Apple’s highest criteria for supplying unbelievable functionality and deliver excellent battery life, no matter iPhone 6s version, colour, or capability.

Specific manufactured laboratory tests which operate the central processing units using a significant workload that is constant before the battery depletes are unrepresentative of real world use, given that they devote an unrealistic timeframe at the best CPU efficiency state. It’s a deceptive method to quantify real world battery life. Client data and our testing reveal iPhone 6s Plus, even taking into consideration changeable element differences, change within only 2-3% of each other and the genuine battery life of the iPhone 6s.
