Here is my first milky way shot ever and that too from a phone camera. I live in a fairly light polluted area not too off, of the city. I wasnt expecting this, not even close. iPhone 13 Pro Max's camera is really as good as they say!

In a similar situation. Upgraded 6s to iOS 15 and its amazing how this 6 year old phone still performs smoothly. After android usage for more than a decade this last 1 year of iOS experience has been great so far. Yes the 6s I use is my brother’s old phone which I picked up last year as a stop gap arrangement when my last android conked off in flat 2 years. Only bought a new battery which stands at 92% currently. Stop gap has swelled to 1 year now and the phone still works fine.

But then the itch to upgrade creeps in now as a few apps don’t support 6s. For example amazon pay UPI. Was eyeing the 12 mini for its compact form factor. Waiting for BBD sale to see what sort of offers we get.

Is everything working fine with iOS 15 on your iPhone 6S? I am using the 6S since 2015 and it is currently in its 6th year and I don't see a point of changing to a new phone even now as it does whatever I want it to do.

Anyone here who uses the dual sim capabilities in the new iphones frequently for work?
A family member is deciding between the iPhone 12 and S20 FE 5g and the main drawback right now is the dual sim functionality,

How similar is the dual sim functionality in the iPhones with the e-sim from a work perspective? how much of a learning curve would be there compared to the way dual sim works on Samsung phones?

Any help would be appreciated thanks

Hi, I am using the dual sim functionality since it has been introduced by Apple. Airtel and Jio supports e-sim in India. So you need to have SIM from one of the two operators.
One tip, the SIM on which you get OTPs from banks or others, keep it as a physical SIM in your phone. That way, you can continue doing transactions by putting the SIM in other phone should you face any problems with your phone. Learnt it the hard way.

Absolutely zippy as ever. No issues. Battery life is also fine.

This is interesting infromation. How do you check the battery capacity (MAH) in log file? I checked the latest log file and don't see the battery information.

Under Analytics Data, you have to scroll down and about halfway youíll find log-aggregated-date stamp, open the most recent one and again itíll open a huge file which will have your battery health data lower down, you can even see the cycle count in addition to all the capacities. Check this link for the step by step:

I am aware of this process on how to check for battery cycle.

Was asking about how to check the battery number remaining like if it was shipped with 3050 MAH and after using it for a year, what is this battery number remaining assuming this also goes down over a period of time.

Go to analytics and share the latest date title file and open it on a pc or a Mac using notes or notepad. Search for cyclecount to check how many cycles your battery has been through. Same way check for maximum fcc for actual original battery capacity. It will be slightly higher than what Apple states. Then check for nominal charge capacity and this is your current battery capacity after depreciation. Also, Apple calculates the battery percentage using the same analytics.
Just find the percentage of current capacity to maximum capacity and the rounded off result is displayed as battery health.

Trust that helps!

Regards.

Thanks, this helped. I copied the last log file and got below data for my iPhone 12 Promax which I bought in November 2020

Basically, after 10 months usage this is what I got

Battery Health as shown on phone : 94%

Battery Cycle Count (As per Log File) : 136

Battery Max FCC : 4438 MAH

What I can understand from above is that as per my heavy usage, I can continue to use this phone and it's battery for total of ~ 4 years as 500 battery cycle is the threshold for all apple devices. That's pretty good!

Can someone decipher the Max FCC. What does this 4438 MAH mean?

Max FCC is the capacity with which the battery was shipped. If you search for nominal charge capacity, it will give you the current charge capacity that your battery can hold now. That is, after depreciation of all these months of usage.

Since your battery health stands ~94%, your nominal charge capacity should be around the figure 4100 mah.

Used the search string "Nominalchargecapacity" and it returned a number like 285. Not sure if that's the correct string to search for current battery capacity.

I checked mine a few days ago and most likely, that was the string. Not sure, why youíre looking at a figure that doesnít seem correct.

Max FCC is the maximum capacity your battery held when brand new, it is around 105-106% of the official rated capacity of the phone (for the 12 pro max the rated capacity is 3687 mah).

You’re not looking at the correct values for max fcc, no way it can be that high for a 12 pro max, I have the same phone and it’s the same age as well in fact (10 months old). Here’s a screenshot from my log values:
