A visual comparison of the autonomy indicators of current iPhone models was shown in a new video by the author of the YouTube channel Mrwhosetheboss. The video blogger compared the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro with all devices in the iPhone 11 series, as well as the iPhone XR and SE. The smartphones worked with the same settings and display brightness. All devices have been updated to the latest iOS version and tested without SIM cards.
Unfortunately, Apple’s new smartphones are noticeably inferior to last year’s flagships. Released last year, the iPhone 11 Pro was able to work in test mode for 7 hours and 36 minutes. For the iPhone 12 Pro, this figure was 6 hours 35 minutes. At the same time, the regular iPhone 12 lasted longer than the previous regular iPhone 11. Since the smartphones were tested without SIM cards, this result is in no way related to the 5G support of the new iPhones. The final ranking looks like this:
- iPhone 11 Pro Max: 8 hours 29 minutes
- iPhone 11 Pro: 7 hours 36 minutes
- iPhone 12: 6 hours 41 minutes
- iPhone 12 Pro: 6 hours 35 minutes
- iPhone 11: 5 hours 8 minutes
- iPhone XR: 4 hours 31 minutes
- iPhone SE (2020): 3 hours 59 minutes
The ranking, of course, is missing the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini, which will be available for pre-order starting November 6th. Recall that disassembly and documentation indicate that the new Apple smartphones received smaller batteries compared to their predecessors. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro have batteries with a capacity of 2815 mAh. For example, for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, these figures are 3110 and 3046 mAh, respectively.
