Bigger iPhone 13 Batteries to Offer Up to 2.5 Hours of Extra Battery Life

As spotted by the folks over at 9to5Mac, Apple has published official battery capacities for its iPhone 13 devices in a filing on the Chemtrec website, revealing significantly larger battery capacities across the lineup.


Apple pointed out during its special event earlier this week that the iPhone 13 mini can achieve about an extra 1.5 hours of use on a single charge, whereas the iPhone 13 can last up to 2.5 hours longer, as compared to last year’s iPhone models.

The company announced similar battery life improvements over last year’s equivalent models for the new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max devices.

The iPhone 13 mini will sport a 9.57 watt hour battery, compared to the 8.57 watt hour battery in the iPhone 12 mini, or an increase of about 11.6%.

The standard iPhone 12 featured a 10.78 watt hour battery. For the iPhone 13, Apple has packed in 12.41 watt hours, an increase of 15%.

The iPhone 12 Pro had the same 10.78 watt hour battery as the 12, but the iPhone 13 Pro now has a 11.97 watt hour battery — up 11%.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max now sports a 16.75 watt hour battery. That’s up 18% from last year’s 12 Pro Max, which had a 14.13 watt hour battery inside.

Bigger batteries across the board are also the reason why all iPhone 13 models are slightly heavier than their last-generation counterparts.
