Apple relies on smaller batteries than the iPhone 11

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are equipped with smaller batteries compared to the iPhone 11. However, Apple claims that the standard iPhone 12 will offer a battery life similar to that of its predecessor, in particular thanks to the presence of the powerful SoC A14. Bionic engraved at 5nm.

True to form, Apple did not reveal the size of the iPhone 12’s batteries during the keynote address. As always, the Cupertino company does not mention the technical specifications of its smartphones in detail.

To learn more about the data sheet of the new iPhones, we must resort to the leaks of the certification bodies. A few days after the presentation, the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Mini appeared like this in the ANATEL database, a Brazilian certification body equivalent to the FCC in the United States.

Here’s the size of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini batteries

According to the organization, the standard iPhone 12 works with a 2,815 mAh battery. For comparison, the iPhone 11, its predecessor, has a 3,110 mAh battery. Despite this reduced battery, Apple expects a similar autonomy of 17 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streaming and 65 hours of audio listening.

Unsurprisingly, Apple has packed an even smaller battery into the iPhone 12 Mini. Affordable and compact, the terminal works with a 2227 mAh battery. The iPhone form factor with the 5.4-inch screen obviously forced Apple to sacrifices on the hardware side. On its website, Apple promises 15 hours of video playback, 10 hours of streaming, and 50 hours of audio listening. On this side, the iPhone 12 Mini does better than the iPhone SE, whose autonomy is simply catastrophic. With its tiny 1821 mAh battery, it doesn’t last a full day.

As you know, the autonomy of a device, be it a smartphone, a tablet or a computer, does not depend solely on the size of its battery. Thanks to the integration of the powerful A14 Bionic SoC, Apple’s first chipset recorded at 5nm, the Californian giant has reduced the overall power consumption of iPhones, finally improving autonomy. As a reminder, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini are now available for pre-order.
