The culprit here is apparently the new A9 processor, which is sourced from two different companies. Some users are seeing benchmark battery life almost 2 hours shorter, as well as a small performance different. So which CPU does your 6s have, and are you affected?

Not only is the Xbox One's graphics powers getting better, the CPU in the Xbox One is now going to be faster than what was originally announced. The Xbox One's CPU will now clock in at 1.75GHz which beats the 1.6GHz speed we originally thought we were going to get. Free hertz is always a win.
Faster hardware shouldn’t be this somber. Yet we can’t help but furrow our brow in concern over Intel’s fourth-generation Core i7 CPU, Haswell. Yes, in typical Intel fashion, it’s a tour de force of technical achievement and features that’s the envy of the free world. It’s also, by the way, quite fast.
AMD just one-upped its own series of eight-core FX processors, and the golden child of this newest lineup is unquestionably the FX-9590, which it claims to be the world's "first-ever 5GHz processor". While technically that record was already beaten — and by AMD itself, no less — it is, in fact, the first commercially available 5GHz CPU processor.
The Cortex A53 and A57 are ARM’s latest and greatest mobile chipset designs, another important leap in its quest to get its mobile chipsets closer in performance to desktop CPU. Designed for single-core or multi-core configurations, the products made from these designs will be the first mobile chipsets to support 64-bit processing.
Apple's homegrown processors in its iOS devices are pretty awesome and regularly outperform other mobile chipsets. Jim Keller, one of the men responsible for that feat, is leaving the company. Where is he going? AMD. Ouch.
Most computers use a two-step process to cool the CPU. First, a heat exchanger pasted to the processor draws the warmth away. And then a combination of a heatsink and fans dissipate it away from the PC. But by merging those two steps into one, this spinning cooler ends up being greater than the sum of its parts.
Fans are awful because noise is awful. So when we see a way to cool down a scorching CPU with zero moving parts — that means silence — we're excited. Especially if it's as awesome-looking as this one.
