Possible iPhone 12 Battery Certifications Are Discovered, May Have Lower Capacities Than iPhone 11

Multiple iPhone 12 battery certifications have been discovered, aligning with the rumoured family of devices expected to be revealed by Apple. These certifications also indicate that the iPhone 12 lineup could feature lower capacities than iPhone 11.

According to MySmartPrice, multiple battery certifications have appeared online. In total, three certifications have appeared on Saftey Korea, 3C, and UL Demko. While it’s been widely rumoured that Apple has four new models in the works under the iPhone 12 umbrella, the report of only three batteries isn’t all that surprising.

Based on what we know so far, Apple may release an entry-level 5.4-inch device, two 6.1-inch models, and a higher-end 6.7-inch device. MySmartPrice has identified and broken down the associating battery model numbers (A2471, A2431, and A2466) with the possible devices:

  • Apple ‌iPhone 12‌ (5.4-inch) – A2471 – 2,227mAh
  • Apple ‌iPhone 12‌ Max (6.1-inch) – A2431 – 2,775mAh
  • Apple ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro (6.1-inch) – A2431 – 2,775mAh
  • Apple ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro Max (6.7-inch) – A2466 – 3,687mAh

What’s worth taking away from the battery capacities is that the” iPhone 12 Pro Max” battery appears to come short of the capacity of the iPhone 11 Pro Max. 2019’s high-end iPhone has a 3,969 mAh battery. The iPhone 12 Pro’s battery capacity is also lower than the iPhone 11 Pro’s which features a 3,046 mAh battery.

In addition, the report also notes that two iPhone chargers were identified as well. A 5W charger with a model number A1443 has been noted. Also, the previously reported 20W charger has been discovered as well with a model number of A2244. The 20W charger will be the fastest charger iPhone has seen, which Apple may believe will make up for the lower battery capacities.
