Any iPhone 6S battery life differences are minimal|On Apple Iphones

Addressing questions about the different processors
used in the new iPhones, Apple says the battery life of
its devices varies by only 2 percent to 3 percent.

Any differences in the battery life of iPhone 6S Plus units should be minimal, Apple says.

Apple on Thursday downplayed the concerns that
different chips powering its new iPhones offer
varying levels of battery life. "Our testing and customer data show the actual
battery life of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, even
taking into account variable component differences,
vary within just 2 to 3 percent of each other," a
company spokesman said in a statement Thursday.

The response comes after mounting chatter over the different processors found in the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. For its new smartphones, which went
on sale at the end of September, Apple used chips
manufactured by Korean electronics conglomerate
Samsung and by Taiwan Semiconductor
Manufacturing Co., or TSMC. Some users reportedly have found that iPhones running on the TSMC chip last significantly longer than on the Samsung chip. Apple, however, said that those tests continuously
work the Apple-designed A9 processors and aren't
indicative of real-world usage.

That is, it's unlikely the
average person would watch movies or browse the
Internet on a smartphone for hours at a time.

"It's a misleading way to measure real-world battery
life," the company said. CNET is conducting its own battery tests of the new
iPhones and will report on the results when they're

Apple said that every chip "meets Apple's highest
standards for providing incredible performance and
deliver great battery life."
