Like the amount of RAM that Apple does not disclose, Apple also hides battery capacity and only indicates the estimated battery life in its standard tests.
However, we were able to find out the battery capacity in the iPhone 12 phones from the files of one of the regulators in Brazil, which indicated the battery capacity specifically in all versions of the iPhone.
The battery capacity in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro phones
IPhone 12 mini phone
IPhone 12 Mini is the smallest iPhone and carries a 2227 mAh battery. According to Apple, the battery in the iPhone 12 mini lasts up to 15 hours of offline video viewing, 10 hours of watching video online, or up to 50 hours of audio playback.
IPhone 12 comes with a slightly larger battery with a capacity of 2815 mAh, but it is less compared to the iPhone 11, which carries a battery capacity of 3110 mAh.
As announced by Apple, the iPhone 12’s battery lasts up to 17 hours of offline video viewing, 11 hours of watching video online, or up to 65 hours of audio playback.
IPhone 12 Pro
IPhone 12 Pro is the same size and screen size as iPhone 12 and has the same capacity and battery life mentioned previously.
IPhone 12 Pro Max
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is the largest version of the four iPhone 12 phones and carries a 3687 mAh battery, smaller than the 4000 mAh iPhone 11 Pro Max battery.
According to what Apple said, the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s battery lasts up to 20 hours of offline video viewing, 12 hours of watching video online, or up to 80 hours of audio playback.
Can we trust these numbers and rely on them?
In theory, yes. As for practicality and actual use, no.
The battery of iPhone phones is much lower than its Android counterpart, which now has a capacity of 4000 mAh and above, but this does not necessarily mean longer battery life because the power consumption system is different in the iPhone from the Android.
IPhone 12 phones support the most energy-consuming fifth-generation networks, but this may be offset by the presence of the Apple A14 processor, which is more energy-efficient alongside OLED screens.
In the coming days, with the launch of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro phones in the market, we will show you the results of realistic tests of the battery and its actual life and how long it lasts in terms of screen time.
