amazing. coming for an xs i should be perfectly happy :))))
I'm still happy with my XS. I'm trying hard to find a compelling reason to upgrade. Must be getting old... it used to be that having the latest and greatest was reason enough.

Plus, it's kind of freeing to have an older phone.

20 hours of streaming video vs only 11 in last year’s Pro is so good of an improvement, it almost looks like a typo. Kudos to Apple’s chip team!

I can't wait because my 11 Pro's battery life is atrocious. It dies in about 6 hours in my pocket doing nothing.

Here are 2 separate days of my phone dying. it was where I have WiFi this is the case at home and work?


I would just take it to work and have it sit next to my MacBook Pro all day and not touch it. I hope the 13 Pro improves things for me. Not touching your phone all day and having it dying is a daily occurrence now. I was on a plane yesterday for 7 hours in airplane mode and lost 40% of my battery.
The biggest problem with your battery drain is that you don’t have cell coverage or it’s very weak. So it’s just burning thru the battery looking for a signal
