Apple’s new iPhone 12 has a smaller battery than the iPhone 11
Something to look forward to: Apple unveiled the new iPhone 12 lineup this week, and details of the devices’ internal batteries have now been revealed. The iPhone 12 has a smaller battery than last year’s iPhone 11, but Apple’s battery life estimates remain consistent across both devices. As you might expect, the smaller iPhone 12 mini has an even smaller battery and shorter battery life.
Information regarding the batteries of new devices appeared in documentation published by ANATEL (the Brazilian equivalent of the FCC) and shared by Tecnoblog. According to the documents, Apple’s iPhone 12 has a 2,815mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the 3,110mAh internal battery in last year’s iPhone 11. However, Apple notes that the iPhone 12 can handle the same 17 hours of video playback as its predecessor. . Likely the result of efficiency gains from Apple’s new SoC and software refinements.
Apples iPhone 12 mini has a smaller battery, as you might expect. According to the documentation, the iPhone 12 mini’s battery has a capacity of 2,227 mAh. The somewhat retro $ 400 IPhone SE 2020, on the other hand, has a capacity of 1,821 mAh.
Details of the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max haven’t been revealed yet, but Apple listed the iPhone 12 Pro’s battery life at 17 hours of video playback, an hour less than last year’s model. Bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max offers the best battery life of any iPhone: Apple notes that it can deliver 20 hours of video playback, like last year’s 11 Pro Max.
The same ANATEL documentation indicates that Apple’s new iPhones are being manufactured at Foxconn sites in Brazil and India, as well as in China. Pre-orders launch for iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro October 16, while pre-orders for the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will open on November 6. The first devices are expected to reach customers next week.
