The iOS 13.5 update was released to all users last week with significant additions such as the contact tracking API for COVID-1 contrast, classic performance improvements and bug fixes, without forgetting the possible improvements to battery life. Will it be so?
Will iOS 13.5 have actually improved battery performance? The iAppleBytes YouTube channel conducted a battery performance test on most iPhone models such as the SE 2020, 11, XR, 8, 7, 6s and the first generation of iPhone SE.
All models have been updated to iOS 13.5 and the test was conducted one week after the update was installed. In the Geekbench test, the iPhone 11 was the last iPhone to shut down totaling 6 hours and 34 minutes, roughly the same time recorded with iOS 13.4. A result of strength that justifies even more the dizzying sales achieved by the device in the panorama of top-of-the-range smartphones.
The iPhone XR took second place with 6 hours and 2 minutes, significantly down compared to iOS 13.4 which had reached 6 hours and 20 minutes of access screen. The iPhone SE 2020, which has already proven its worth despite being the cheapest in the series, considering its significantly reduced battery, reached 4 hours and 12 minutes. Even the standard iPhone SE with iOS 13.5 has seen its autonomy reduced by about 12 minutes.
In reverse, iPhone 7 battery life has increased by 10 minutes, touching 3 hours and 34 minutes. Finally, the iPhone 8 also records a negative result, stopping just 3 hours and 23 minutes.
We can therefore say that, except in rare cases, iThe new update did not introduce anything significant in terms of battery life, with the data continuing to be more or less those seen on iOS 13.4 and iOS 13.4.1. Below, we leave you with the complete video for an even more in-depth analysis of what is reported in writing.
