Which iPhone Has The Best Battery Life?

According to Apple, the iPhones with the longest battery life are the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus, which are designed to last about the same amount of time. Both the 7 Plus and 8 Plus offer up to one more hour of internet use or video playback than the iPhone X.

However, the iPhone X battery is almost as good as the iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus battery. The iPhone X battery will give you as many hours of wireless talk (up to 21 hours) and wireless audio playback (up to 60 hours).
