The batteries of the iPhone 13 are on average 13 percent larger than those of the iPhone 12 series

Now we know how much bigger the batteries of the iPhone 13 series are compared to the iPhone 12 line.

Information is courtesy of a product information sheet on the website of the hazardous materials information company Chemtrec (detected by 9to5Mac). According to that document, which contains information sourced directly from Apple, the batteries in the iPhone 13 are on average 13 percent larger, and the 13 Pro Max now gives the Nintendo Switch a run for its money in watts.

Chemtrec’s paper lists battery sizes in watt-hours (Wh) rather than milliamp-hours (mAh). The edge notes that most manufacturers use mAh, but Wh is usually a more accurate measurement and a better way to compare battery life.

You can see the battery breakdown below:

The edge He also pointed out some cool changes and listed the Wh battery metering of some other popular devices.

Starting with the changes, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro have different battery sizes, while the 12 and 12 Pro were the same size. It is also noteworthy that the 13 Pro’s battery is smaller than that of the iPhone 13.

That may be due to the additional hardware in the iPhone 13 Pro: It has an additional camera, a GPU core, and a 120Hz display packed into the same size as the iPhone 13. In other words, it makes sense that the 13 Pro has a battery. little smaller.

As for how the iPhone 13 compares to other devices, here are the Wh measurements of some other popular devices (via iFixit):

Considering that Apple made the extended battery capacity of the iPhone 13 line a major selling point at their event, I’m glad the company backs up the claims with numbers as well. Now, we just need to see if the claims hold up in real-world testing, something we should learn once the reviewers start testing the phones.
