Apple has announced the battery life of the iPhone 12, and says that it is equivalent to the iPhone 11. However, Apple has not announced exactly how much battery capacity the iPhone 12 is. Maybe because this information will make users feel dissatisfied, because the iPhone 12 has been equipped with a smaller battery than before.
According to the latest leak from Brazilian certification agency ANATEL, the iPhone 12 mini (A2471) and the iPhone 12 battery (A2479) are listed with 2227 mAh and 2815 mAh battery capacities respectively.
Thus, the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 is much smaller than the iPhone 11 (3110mAh). However, the battery life is equivalent. While the iPhone 12 mini model has no comparison with the previous generation, due to the absence of a predecessor.
The reason why the iPhone 12 has a smaller battery capacity, but the battery life is equivalent to the iPhone 11, is due to the A14 chip based on the 5nm process, which improves power efficiency. At the same time, the iPhone 12’s OLED screen is also more energy efficient than the previous generation.
The iPhone 12 mini has a 2227 mAh battery that is considered quite low. However, it is still higher than the iPhone SE 2020 (1821 mAh), and has only slightly lower battery life than the iPhone 12. So in practice can still meet the needs of the user.
Information on the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max has yet to be announced. But according to leaked sources, the battery capacities of the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are 2815 mAh and 3687 mAh, respectively. Both are also lower than the iPhone 11 Pro (3046 mAh) and 11 Pro Max (3969 mAh).
