If you check the official spec sheet of the iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and the iPhone 8 Plus, you’d see that their official battery life numbers as quoted by Apple is very similar. The company claims the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus last about an hour longer than the iPhone 6s Plus. Then, there’s the iPhone X which Apple claims lasts about 2 hours longer than the iPhone 7 despite coming with a display and battery bigger than any of its Plus handsets.
iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know!
There has been a pretty consistent rumor going around that Apple is going to launch three new iPhones this year: a true successor to the iPhone X, a larger 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus with an OLED display, and then a 6.1-inch iPhone equipped with an LCD panel.
Apple’s iPhone lineup dominates the premium end of the smartphone market. While the company does not ship as many smartphones in a year as Samsung, it still manages to dominate the mobile industry in terms of profit. As per numbers from the latest Counterpoint Research, the iPhone X alone accounted for 35 percent of the total profit generated by the smartphone industry in Q4, 2017 and 21 percent of the total revenue.
Tony Fadell is the “father of the iPod”, and has many years working with Apple. He believes the company should be working on a way to fight addiction to the iPhone.
Recently, Apple launched the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in (PRODUCT)RED, giving the lineup a bold new color option well after its initial release date.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has stuck to its story that it is getting increasingly more difficult to bypass iPhone security systems, which would give them unfettered access to a device as they see fit.
Back in September, when Apple unveiled the iPhone X, Snapchat showed off some AR lenses exclusively for the handset. The lenses made use of the TrueDepth camera system located on the front of the iPhone X and thereby were of higher quality than what is usually found in the app. Now, six months later, Snapchat is finally releasing these lenses for iPhone X users.
With the iPhone X now being over six months old and its sales declining, retailers and carriers have started offering some attractive deals on it. Sam’s Club is joining that boat with its new iPhone X deal that runs throughout April. The retailer will be offering a $150+ gift card to any customer who activates the iPhone X on a new line on a two-year agreement or on installment. The offer is also valid for customers who use their upgrade option to switch to the iPhone X.
Apple today released a few videos on its YouTube channel highlighting Apple Pay on the iPhone X using Face ID. The four ads are titled “Groceries”, “Coffee”, “Kicks”, and “Grooming” and they are all around 12 seconds in length.
On paper, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ come with batteries that are bigger than the iPhone X’s 2716mAh battery. The Galaxy S9 comes with a battery that is just a wee bit bigger at 3000mAh, while the S9+ comes with a substantially bigger 3500mAh battery.
