Stereo speakers crush battery. 1 hr playback > 10%. Possibly why Apple changed the battery life specs to “wireless”.

I noticed "wireless" on launch. Then I recalled iPhone speaker already used a lot of battery, and now it's stereo.

Someone, maybe me, needs to test obviously but good to know…use headphones or bluetooth.

also the source of the audio may matter too. If a radio has to stay on, that’s a bad thing for the battery.

Personally I blame ;). I noticed during streaming last night that battery got smoked. (Yes, I subtracted for streaming!)

I use bluetooth headphones, never stereo and have noticed significantly worse battery life as well.

I use speakers for podcasts a good 6+ hours a day. Had to charge x2 day with 6s too, it's not a stereo speaker thing.
