It seems Apple has some good news for iPhone 15 battery life, but it comes with a catch.

The company has already been under intense scrutiny when it got caught throttling speeds on older iPhones due to battery issues. 

However, this time, iPhone 15 owners might be in for a longer battery life under “ideal conditions”, if Apple is to be believed.

The company has recently retested the batteries in iPhone 15.

It seems the smartphone’s long-term battery health is better than what was initially claimed.

However, we are not sure if the batteries and software have become more efficient or if Apple’s testing methods have changed.

Similar to this, the company also recently busted the urban myth of using rice to dry an iPhone.

In the new iOS 17.4 Beta update, the company has made a few changes to the battery health settings.

The company initially said that the iPhone 15’s battery would retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity for 800 charging cycles.

However, now they’re claiming that iPhone 15 and 15 Pro’s battery can maintain at least 80 percent of their original capacity for 1,000 charging cycles.

Apple has also made changes within iOS 17.4 Beta and its website to advertise the 1,000-cycle figure.

However, they did change the term under “normal conditions” to “ideal conditions.”

The term “normal conditions” has been removed from their entire website, including their older iPhones.

The company has been known to take some liberty when it comes to word choices.

For example, they also restricted their employees from calling the Apple Vision Pro a VR headset and called it spatial computing.

Unfortunately, it’s not clear if this change in terminology also reflects a change in testing.

Normal and ideal conditions are very different ways to test a phone, but this is Apple, so nothing can be for sure.
