iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S battery’s life, which one is better?

iPhone 5 Battery’s Life

iPhone 4S Battery’s Life

Differences between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S battery:

  1. The iPhone 5’s battery is slightly less than a half an inch taller than the iPhone 4S. The thickness appears to be identical.
  2. The iPhone 5 is 3.8V/5.45Whr while the iPhone 4S is 3.7V/5.3Whr.
  3. The connector on the iPhone 5 is not only different, it is placed on the opposite side of the battery to accomodiate its new position within the iPhone.

Phil Schiller made some points about the iPhone 5’s battery life yesterday,
“We’re really proud that the iPhone 5 battery life exceeds the iPhone 4S.” said Phil.

And, as expected, even with 4G LTE connectivity, a more powerful processor and a larger screen, Apple was able to keep the iPhone 5 thin without sacrificing the iPhone’s battery life.

  • 8 hours of 3G talk time and 3G browsing
  • 8 hours of LTE browsing
  • 10 hours of WiFi
  • 10 hours video playback
  • 40 hours music playback
  • 225 hours of standby

The iPhone 5 offers 8 hours of internet browsing over 4G LTE, which is up from 6 hours of 3G browsing on the iPhone 4S. Talktime remains at the same 8 hours , while you’ll get the same 10 hours of video playback from a single charge and 225 hours of standby. In comparison, the iPhone 4S’ battery achieved no more than 200 hours standby time.

The 8 hours LTE Internet browsing is a bit of a surprise, as the standard has been known to be a notorious battery drain culprit on other devices. But make no mistake, this is an impressive statistic we hope would turn out to be true once the iPhone 5 becomes available.

Honestly speaking, some of the estimates may be a bit too optimistic, but it’s too early to pass judgment on the iPhone 5’s battery. I hope we won’t face any iPhone 5 battery drain like its predecessors with the new battery.

Apple iPhone Not Charging while Plugged into the Computer through USB cable

Apple iPhone Not Charging while Plugged into the Computer through USB cable

If your Apple iPhone is not charging through the USB cable on the computer, there could be some reasons why the iPhone battery is not charged through the USB on the computer while it is charging as usual while connected to the wall charger. You’re not only one with this issue.

iPhone USB Cable Not Charging
iPhone Not Charging through USB Cable on Computer provides some advices for those who’ve been getting this problem and never resolved it.

  1. Make sure that you have a good working USB cable. Trying several USB cables may help you to determine if the problem is on your USB cable or something else.
  2. Sometimes a good looking USB cable doesnt guarantee that it’ll work as you expect. Try clean the end of the cable for dust, which merely prevent your iPhone being charged from the computer though it may work on wall charger, but it could be stopped working when you use it through USB cable on the computer.
  3. Clean the dock connector with a dry, soft bristle brush then try again.
  4. Clean the USB port on the computer.
  5. Try different USB ports on the computer. A computer mostly have more than one USB ports, so you may try each available port.
  6. Some computers intended to have USB port disabled for being used. In this case, find out the one which is not disabled or find other computers to charge the iPhone instead.
  7. Connect the cable directly to the computer. Some people use USB hub for additional USB ports. However, the USB power sometimes divided through all the USB port and your iPhone charging requirement isn’t fulfiled.
  8. Try to reboot both iPhone and the computer.
  9. Remove the SIM card from the iPhone and retry.
  10. Try to hard reboot the iPhone. Plug in cable, Hold Power & Home until you see the Apple logo, then release the button and let is restart and see if it’s star charing through USB.
  11. In the worst case scenario, you may need to uninstall and then re-install iTunes software on your computer. That’s a pain but definitely worth to try.
  12. Oh wait, the last one, I promise. Try to restore the iOS software through iTunes. Don’t forget to create the backup in the first place!

If none of mentioned tips above works, it’s the time to get it fixed or you may contact Apple for replacement.
