Yet another tidbit about the iPhone 5 coming out of today's big Apple event is that the new LTE-enabled smartphone will match or even exceed the iPhone 4S battery life, despite being slimmer and running faster. Browsing and talking on cellular networks gives you 8 hours, while the iPhone 5 can handle 10 hours of Wi-Fi browsing or video, 40 hours of music, or 225 hours of standby. By comparison, the iPhone 4S is advertised as handling 8 hours of talk time, 200 hours standby, 6 hours of browsing on 3G, 9 hours on Wi-Fi, 10 hours of video, and 40 hours of music.
Sounds like a solid improvement to me! There's still a lot going on in our live coverage of the iPhone 5 announcement, so stick around!
