I've never had that experience with an iPhone. Plus, they do not hold up well in cold, adverse conditions, and touch screens do not work well when wet. Compass, paper map, rugged GPS for serious endeavors. Keep the phone for Starbucks orders and Tik Tok.
I guess I can only speak from my experience. I was out on an overnight this past weekend. Rain, snow, hail, graupel, sleet, thunderstorms, temps both sides of freezing, and bushwhacks. Used bluetooth headphones at times while hiking and watched a movie at night. Never plugged in, never turned off. Returned with a 63% charge remaining Sunday afternoon.
