Apple’s claims about M1 battery life are all true

One area of the M1 that looked super impressive was the claims of 20 hours of battery life, well for me it’s been a bit better.

I realised that this week I’ve been Job seeking (heavily using Apple Notes and Safari), listening to music, using Mail and the occasional switch to Apollo for Reddit or checking Twitter and I’m still at over 30% left. That’s 4 days of use, not 7 hours a day but at least 5 hours of use a day. The claims on battery life are true, it’s quite the step up from my old MacBook.

I’ve not pushed it at all yet and I’ll do some testing of Logic Pro with some guitar recording soon but I’m so impressed with this battery life.
