Battery Life

Jason Snell, Six Colors:

This morning the good Stephen Hackett of the Connected podcast and 512 Pixels sent me a message, asking me if I could point him to a specific story where I had made this observation. I couldn’t oblige him—I’ve made the observation endlessly in stories and on podcasts, but I can’t recall actually writing a story about the trend.

At which point Stephen went away, did the research into Apple’s battery life claims for iPhones and iPads, and came back with numbers which prove my point—to a point.

Great piece from Jason. Well worth a read if you want to understand Apple's philosophy for device iteration.
