Unmasking the iPhone 15 Series Batteries
Apple’s tradition of shrouding iPhone battery capacities in secrecy has once again been unraveled, this time through certification databases in China. While Apple rarely divulges these specifics, the latest revelations indicate subtle improvements in the battery capacities of the iPhone 15 Series, though they fall short of a 100mAh increase compared to the iPhone 14 Series.
The Battery Breakdown
- iPhone 15: The base model, iPhone 15, boasts a 3,349mAh battery, marking a marginal increase from its predecessor, the iPhone 14, which featured a 3,279mAh battery.
- iPhone 15 Plus: Stepping up, the iPhone 15 Plus is equipped with a 4,383mAh battery, showing a slight bump from the 4,325mAh capacity in the iPhone 14 Plus.
- iPhone 15 Pro: The iPhone 15 Pro takes the battery capacity to 3,274mAh, representing a modest improvement over the 3,200mAh battery found in the iPhone 14 Pro.
- iPhone 15 Pro Max: Leading the pack, the iPhone 15 Pro Max sports the largest battery at 4,422mAh, a notable increase from the 4,323mAh in the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Reality vs. Expectations
Curiously, Apple didn’t emphasize any significant battery life enhancements for the iPhone 15 Series during the recent “Wonderlust” launch event. This is intriguing considering the high expectations of improved battery longevity due to the utilization of the 3nm fabrication process for the A17 Pro chipset.
A Consistent Stance
According to specifications listed on Apple’s official website, the battery life figures for the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus remain consistent at 20 hours and 25 hours, respectively. Similarly, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max maintain their previous battery life stats, offering 23 hours and 29 hours of usage. These numbers suggest that, in terms of battery life, the iPhone 15 Series stays in line with its predecessors in the iPhone 14 lineup.
