Apple: iPhone 15 batteries last longer than originally thought

Apple originally said that the iPhone 15’s battery, like several generations of iPhones before it, would retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 500 complete charge cycles. The company tells 9to5Mac that the iPhone 15 can retain 80% of its original capacity at 1000 complete charge cycles.

Chance Miller for 9to5Mac:

Apple says that its testing involved charging and discharging the battery 1000 times under specific circumstances representing common use cases. The improvement is due to Apple making continued updates to battery components and power management systems over the years.

Apple says that this change in battery cycle lifespan only applies to the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Previous iPhone models continue to be rated at retaining up to 80% capacity at 500 complete charge cycles. The company adds, however, that it is currently investigating older iPhone models, as well.
