iPhone 13 series batteries are up to 18% larger than iPhone 12 series’
Aside from the camera upgrades and 120Hz displays, it seems that the iPhone 13 series also got larger batteries. As teardowns of the iPhones are appearing on YouTube, MacRumors managed to confirm the battery capacities for all the iPhone 13 devices.
Compared to the iPhone 12 series, we are looking at between 8% to 18% larger batteries. One interesting note is that while the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro shared the same battery capacity, this year’s iPhone 13 Pro actually has a slightly smaller battery than the iPhone 13, presumably because of the beefier camera modules in the iPhone 13 Pro leaving little room for the battery.
In any case, here are the battery capacities:
iPhone 13 Series Battery Capacities
|iPhone 12 mini: 2227mAh||iPhone 13 mini: 2406mAh||8%|
|iPhone 12: 2815mAh||iPhone 13: 3227mAh||15%|
|iPhone 12 Pro: 2815mAh||iPhone 13 Pro: 3095mAh||10%|
|iPhone 12 Pro Max: 3687mAh||iPhone 13 Pro Max: 4352mAh||18%|
Apple has claimed that the iPhone 13 mini offers 1.5 hours longer battery life, while the iPhone 13 can deliver an extra 2.5 hours of use, as compared to their respective last-gen counterparts. The iPhone 13 Pro is also supposed to offer 1.5 hours more juice, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max is going to give you an additional 2.5 hours, versus their respective predecessors.
Of course, while iPhone batteries are now quite significantly larger than their predecessors, it is still a far cry from what Android phones are offering. It really depends on how well Apple optimizes the software, especially when we now have more power hungry components like a 120Hz OLED panel in the iPhone 13 Pro series.
Pokdepinion: It’s pretty interesting how Apple can deliver decent battery life even with the relatively tiny batteries.
