According to a new report from the leaker L0vetodream, the iPhone 13 series is expected to feature a larger battery capacity than last year’s models.
These should be the battery capacities of the individual models, compared to the current ones on the iPhone 12 series:
- iPhone 12 mini 2,227 mAh – iPhone 13 mini 2,406 mAh (8% increase)
- iPhone 12/12 Pro 2,815 mAh – iPhone 13/13 Pro 3,095 mAh (9.9% increase)
- iPhone 12 Pro Max 3,687 mAh – iPhone 13 Pro Max 4,352 mAh (18% increase)
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the series iPhone 13 may have larger batteries. Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had already talked about it last March.
This increase in battery will surely help the Pro models to better manage the higher power consumption given by the higher refresh rate of the screen. Also, it seems that the Always On Display feature will come in all models. Clearly this increase in battery capacity will also lead to an overall increase in the weight of the device.
Will the iPhone 13 series have the same autonomy as the previous series?
When it comes to autonomy, there are several factors to consider. The mere numerical value of the capacity of the single battery is not enough. We certainly know that the new chip will always use a 5nm manufacturing process, so it won’t change much in terms of energy efficiency. Surely, however, the use of LTPO panels in the Pro models will help to contain consumption, but at the same time we will have a higher refresh rate Never like this time a lot will depend on the optimization work that Apple will do on the single device.
