    iPad Pro How’s Your 2020 iPad Pro Battery Life?

    My 2020 12.9” is getting me 8-10 hours of use. Random googling shows this to be around normal, while the 2018 model gets over 13 hours. Given that the soc is almost the same, as is the display, battery etc, I’m not sure why we see the reduced battery life. what are you guys getting?

    Why does not Apple set different performance options?

    the worst thing about bad choices and outputs of mbp 16 is the battery life concern causes them. To promote the battery life on WWDC show, users suffer these kind of quality drops or choices. if i use a Pro labeled device, i have right to modify its performance settings, i should have right to...

    I'm pretty disappointed with the MBP 16" battery health situation.

    So many people -myself included- report that their 16" battery health is less than 100% out of the box. Now that'd be okay if it was 99 or even 98. But for most, it's 95% or even less. Now that's all fine and dandy, discharge and charge and let it calibrate, it'll be fine and report correct...

Will the battery truly be worsen? Or is it just a temporary thing and my battery would return to normal...

    Other Calling out Apple's iOS update Battery Shenanigans

    I've been derided for making this point in previous threads, but as an SE owner, and having bought two iphone 7 plus phones for my parents, this is really bothersome to me and I feel Apple needs to be called out on it. Whenever I or other posters bring up battery problems on older devices after...

    iPhone 11 I'm I crazy for thinking on going to an 11 owning a XS Max?

    I can't find any comparisons on camera performance between the 11 (non pro) and the XS Max. I'm looking to lower my phone bill and switching my phones to the 11 will be a nice reduction on our monthly plan. I know the screen is not as nice but honestly my priorities are battery life and camera...

    Amazon renewed Macbook (2017 12") battery seems to drain really quick

    Main question: Should I return this Amazon renewed item and just spend the extra money on a certified Apple refurbished if the battery seems suspect?

    15" battery life, 16GB/560X vs 32GB/555X?

    I have a question regarding these two. If I understand correctly Apple put in a bigger battery in the 2018 15" to handle DDR4 RAM. So would 32GB use less or more power vs going with 16GB and potentially maxing it out and using swap memory? I have a choice between two refurb models, 16GB/560X...
