It is now pretty clear that at least some of the four new iPhone models will be available in fall 2020 – iPhone 12, 12 Max, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max – can be delivered in the box without a charger. We’d bet this will be the cheaper iPhone 12 and later 12 Max models that would otherwise have been shipped with Apple’s miserable 5W chargers that nobody wants anyway.
Battery life and capacity of the Apple iPhone 12, 12 Max, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max
- 5.4 “Apple iPhone 12 battery: 2227mAh
- 6.1 “Apple iPhone 12 Max battery: 2775mAh
- 6.1 “Apple iPhone 12 Pro battery: 2775mAh
- 6.7 “Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max battery: 3687mAh
The three capacity models listed above are listed under the model numbers of the A2471, A2431 and A2466 iPhone batteries, as the two 6.1-inch devices may actually share the same battery capacity.
Nevertheless, the iPhone 12 Max panel will be from the OLED instead of the LCD version this year, which will squeeze a little more juice out of the battery, especially when displaying mixed content.
Apple is also expected to use a more energy efficient Apple A14 processor based on the novel 5nm production node. This can also compensate for the smaller battery sizes. Here are the alleged batteries of the iPhone 12 series in meat and lithium ions.
