The iPhone X was released in November 2017 and features an L-shaped, dual-cell battery, which is considered unusual for a smartphone. The battery has a capacity of 2716 mAh and is made of lithium-ion technology, which allows it to charge faster than older generations of batteries. The battery life of the iPhone X can vary depending on usage, but Apple claims it can last up to 21 hours of talk time or up to 13 hours of internet use.
