Apple iPhones are known for a lot of things like Siri and Touch ID, but battery is not one of them. In fact, battery is one reason many distance themselves from the iPhones. But, when you think of an iPhone priced over a lakh, your expectations are naturally as high as the price. So hoping for a better battery on the iPhone X is but natural. And from what it seems, Apple took care of that.

In a recently shared teardown video on YouTube, it has been revealed that the iPhone X is fuelled by dual-batteries. From what we assume, Apple must have decided to split the capacity between two packs in order to fit other components around two small batteries instead of one larger or thicker one. Do note, existence of two batteries is no proof to a better battery life. We do hope that s the case though. Also Read - Beware! This new iOS bug breaks WiFi on iPhones: Here's a quick fix for it
Further, the overall structure of the iPhone X is similar to how iPhones were built in the past the display is removed from the top and hinges at the bottom. The iPhone X s display is connected to the board on its right side, so when taken off, it flips open to the right.
Digging deeper we see a very small motherboard being taken out of the device. See the video for yourself below. It is mostly silent, with Summertime Sadness playing in the background, so you just have to watch. Also while the video is interesting, the camera guy seems to have a hard time maintaining focus.

Further, since we see a dual-battery setup in this video, it is fair to mention the recent review reports that rated iPhone X s battery performance quite positively. According to BuzzFeed News, Battery life on the iPhone X is decent, but not stellar. Folks at the publication tested the device for a week. Day 1, the battery dropped down to nine percent at late afternoon after mixed use of apps, including use of Waze to drive home and installing apps.

Surprisingly, on day 2, the reviewer started using the device at 98 percent in the morning, and that day included usage like recording a 4K video, listening to Podcast through the speakers, and an hour-long call. Despite this, the battery dropped only to 17 percent around 10 in the night. With 100 percent battery level in the morning and use of apps such as Lyft, Google Docs, Twitter, and Facebook, while on Wi-Fi, there still remained 27 percent battery at around midnight. In addition to BuzzFeed News, another review by TechCrunch also concludes that the battery lasts all day. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone X Face ID put to test with identical twins; the results are puzzling
