Consumer Reports takes a comprehensive look at #chipgate, finds literally zero for new iPhone 6s owners to fret over.
At the end of testing, both phones quit at about the same time, after a little more than 11 hours and 600-plus webpage downloads. The differences here were even smaller than in the previous test: less than 1 percent.
