I've had my iPhone 6s since February, 2016, and the battery has been below 50% exactly one time. I charge it every night. Right now I connected it to charge after 10 hours off charge and it shows 88%.

On the other hand, I don't use it for anything but phone calls and text messages. Once in a very great while I use Firefox to check company email through Office365, but that's about all of it. (BTW, I care very little for any "cloud" service offered through SharePoint.)

The problem I've always had with Apple is the "push updates", which, umm, "just happen", as signaled by the fact that the next day I have to enter the 15-character password instead of using the fingerprint reader. A while back, when I was managing Oracle Solaris 10 servers, there were no "push updates", because I wanted to read and understand the release notes, warnings, notifications, etc., before I possibly bricked a few hundred large worth of systems to keep me from working late a few hours four times a year.

Oracle Linux 6 and 7 really, really like the "push update". Those servers took the entire Command Information Management System, Knowledge Management System Services, and everything else from the five year old Sun-branded M3000 servers on August 1, 2017.

I'm very happy to have nothing to do with that mess any longer.

(8-10 minutes later update--the iPhone 6s is at 91% charge. Whatever that means.)
