As the iPhone 12 went on sale, more and more users began to get and use the new phone, and some problems began to show up. Now, many users have reported that the battery life of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is too weak, and the battery’s performance is not strong after being fully charged. It is difficult to count on it for a full day if you watch a lot of videos or play games.
The battery capacity used by the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro is the same, both 2815mAh. Compared with the previous generation iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, the capacity is reduced a bit. We has a battery capacity of 3110mAh and 3046mAh respectively.
Although Apple officially stated that the battery life of the iPhone 12 and the previous-generation iPhone 11 is the same; the results of tests by some experts show that this is not the case.
Last week, Arun Maini conducted detailed comparison tests on iPhone SE, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 series, and iPhone 12/12 Pro models. At the same time, these models are all running iOS 14 without a SIM inserted, and the battery status is also good. The result is that when the iPhone 12 Pro (final battery life of 6 hours and 35 minutes) is exhausted, the iPhone 11 Pro still has 18% of the power remaining.
When the iPhone 12 (final battery life of 6 hours and 41 minutes) automatically shuts down; the iPhone 11 Pro (final battery life of 7 hours and 36 minutes) still has 14% power.
Although there are many situations that determine the battery life of a model; a large capacity can theoretically obtain a longer battery life.
Here is the amount of RAM and battery capacity of the iPhone 12 series
This is the battery capacity for the 2020 iPhone flagships:
- iPhone 12 mini – 2227 mAh
- iPhone 12 – 2851 mAh
- iPhone-12 Pro – 2815 mAh
- iPhone 12 Pro Max – 3687 mAh
In the case of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Max, we are dealing with a downgrade. For comparison, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max had 3,110mAh and 3,969mAh batteries, respectively. It seems that in terms of autonomy, Apple made a bet on the energy efficiency of the 5nm A14 Bionic chip.
If we talk about the amount of RAM, then the alignment of forces is as follows:
- iPhone 12 mini – 4 GB
- iPhone 12 — 4 GB
- iPhone-12 Pro — 6 GB
- iPhone 12 Pro Max — 6 GB.
It turns out that the two younger iPhone 12 models received the same amount of RAM as the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. But the older models have increased the amount of RAM to 6 GB. And let’s be objective that that much RAM is enough for the vast majority of tasks.
