For a product that is a mere 11 days away from shipping, Apple has not released very many final details. However, today Apple Announced that the iPhone would have up to 8 hours of talk time. Now we’re talking (ooh that was bad, I know).
June 18, 2007â€”AppleÂ® today announced that iPhoneâ„¢ will deliver significantly longer battery life when it ships on June 29 than was originally estimated when iPhone was unveiled in January. iPhone will feature up to 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback.* In addition, iPhone will feature up to 250 hoursâ€”more than 10 daysâ€”of standby time.

â€œWith 8 hours of talk time, and 24 hours of audio playback, iPhoneâ€™s battery life is longer than any other â€˜Smartphoneâ€™ and even longer than most MP3 players,â€ said Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œWeâ€™ve also upgraded iPhoneâ€™s entire top surface from plastic to optical-quality glass for superior scratch resistance and clarity. There has never been a phone like iPhone, and we can’t wait to get this truly magical product into the hands of customers starting just 11 days from today.â€
