Apple of the year It was rumored that the iPhone 13 series had larger batteries than last year’s range, and it seems that the prediction was correct on the money. Leaker L0vetodream has brought to our attention a Weibo post – reportedly from a popular digital digital chat station – which has revealed the battery capacity of the next iPhones.
All iPhone 13 models will have larger batteries than their predecessors
It looks like the 5.4-inch iPhone 1
3 mini will pack a 2,406mAh cell, which is a modest increase over the 2227mAh battery on the iPhone 12 mini.
Like last year, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro, which reportedly both will be 6.1 inches, will have the same battery capacity. According to the latest scoop, these models will come with 3,095mAh batteries, which is a decent increase over its predecessor’s 2,815mAh batteries.
Alleged iPhone 13 battery capacity
The iPhone 13 Pro Max will apparently get the biggest bump in battery capacity. Tipster says that the top model will flag with a 4,352mAh battery, a significant improvement over the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s 3,687mAh battery.
iPhone 13’s new internal design will allow for larger batteries
Back in March, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said a new space-saving design would pave the way for larger batteries on the iPhone 13 series. The SIM card slot will reportedly be integrated with the motherboard, and the thickness of the front optical modules will also be reduced.
The larger batteries are expected to make the new phones a little heavier than today’s models.
It was also reported late last year that the iPhone 13 line will include soft board battery technology that allows Apple to use flexible circuit boards instead of regular printed ones. This is supposed to help create more room for larger cells.
LTPO technology on the Pro models and the A15 Bionic chipset will further increase the life of the iPhone 13 battery
The battery life will reportedly be further enhanced by the new one A15 Bionic chipset, which is said to be more energy efficient than the chip that powers the iPhone 12. The new chip is apparently based on an improved version of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC)’s 5nm process used for the A14 Bionic.
It is rumored that the advanced models come with LTPO OLED panels, which are believed to be up to 20 percent more energy efficient compared to iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. The main motive behind the use of LTPO panels is to bring a high refresh rate to the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.
Reports indicate that these models have 120Hz displays. LTPO technology will allow phones to change the refresh rate dynamically in response to the content displayed.
The screen will reportedly be purchased from Samsung, which probably knows something about the screen with high refresh rate. The inclusion of the technology can also always bring the function on in the Pro models.
The mini and standard model will reportedly stick to a 60Hz screen.
Rumored specifications on iPhone 13
The new phones will reportedly be unveiled in September, and larger batteries are far from the only improvements coming to them. On the design front, we expect a smaller notch and larger camera skin to accommodate larger sensors with new lenses. The overall look is not expected to change much from the iPhone 12 series.
The next generation is also expected to come with a 1 TB storage option for the first time. Also on the cards is Touch ID in the display and new color choices including bronze and matte black.
