There have been rumors circulating over the past month or so that the battery life of the iPhone would be pathetic but according to MacScoop’s inside source the battery life will “surprise us.” According to Apple’s specs, the iPhone will have up to 5 hours talk/video/browsing and up to 16 hours of audio playback. If MacScoop’s source is correct, then it sounds like the battery life will exceed the advertised specs.
Surprisingly, their ‘source’ is more concerned about the slippery feel of the iPhone:
Overall, our source found the iPhone awesome but he mentioned, as a sole negative point, that the material used on the device’s case makes it feel even more slippery than the iPod and will probably require the purchase of a protective skin or case so as to avoid unintentionally dropping it.
Interesting details…only a month or so to go until we all can get some hands-on time with the iPhone.
