Apple, known for its reticence in revealing the actual battery capacities of its devices, has launched its latest iPhone 15 series with slightly larger batteries than its predecessors. This information was revealed through a Chinese regulatory database, shedding light on the power behind the latest iPhone 15 series.
Apple’s iPhone 15 Series Features Larger Batteries
Incremental Increases in Battery Capacities
The iPhone 15 series, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max, all have slightly larger batteries than their predecessors. Here are the details:
- The iPhone 15’s battery capacity is 3,349 mAh, up from 3,279 mAh on the iPhone 14.
- The iPhone 15 Plus gets a battery of 4,383 mAh, up from 4,325 mAh on the iPhone 14 Plus.
- The iPhone 15 Pro’s battery capacity is 3,274 mAh, up from 3,200 mAh on the iPhone 14 Pro.
- The iPhone 15 Pro Max has the largest battery of all with its 4,422 mAh cell, up from 4,323 mAh in the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
These increases are quite small. Therefore, if there are any noticeable improvements in battery life, they will most likely come from more efficient chipsets and screens rather than these under-100 mAh gains in battery sizes. The new models were unveiled at a special event on Tuesday and have already gone up for pre-order in dozens of markets globally.
iPhone 15 Battery Capacity – Real-world Performance Yet to be Seen
Despite these incremental increases in battery capacities, Apple did not highlight any improvements in battery life for its new iPhone 15 models compared to their direct predecessors. This suggests that any differences may be negligible in real-world usage. However, it’s possible that efficiency improvements may still result in slightly better real-world performance.
