A current leak is concerned with the possible battery capacity of the Apple iPhone 12 family expected for autumn. If you trust alleged documents from various certification authorities, the theoretical endurance of the new Apple smartphones could decrease.
As the Indian product comparison and blog MySmartPrice reports, the databases of the certification platforms UL Demko, Safety Korea, and 3C have found various information that indicates new iPhone batteries. The model numbers A2471, A2431, and A2466 are said to hide energy storage devices that the American manufacturer could install in its future iOS smartphones in the iPhone 12 series. In line with this, the bloggers bring detailed information in connection with the three possible sizes of the upcoming Apple flagships.
Capacity should be lower could also affect battery life?
According to this, the probably cheapest and most compact 5.4-inch model could be equipped with a battery capacity of 2227mAh. The two 6.1-inch smartphones iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro, on the other hand, are said to have 2775mAh. With 3687mAh, Apple’s top model iPhone 12 Pro Max can also be expected. Compared to the current generation, the “size” of the batteries installed would shrink. The iPhone 11 (6.1 inches) and the iPhone 11 Pro Max (6.5 inches) are currently equipped with 3110mAh and 3969mAh, respectively. However, as usual, these key figures say little about battery life. Not only is the interaction between hardware and software crucial, but also the power consumption of individual components. In addition to the display, this also includes the ARM chips trimmed by Apple for energy efficiency.
Despite a possibly falling battery capacity, it can be assumed that the manufacturer will receive, if not increase, the runtime information (approx. 10 to 20 hours of video playback). The new iPhone 12 models are priced starting at $649. However, it is uncertain when the high-end smartphones will reach the market. There is currently the talk of an unconfirmed starting signal in September or October.
