During the September presentation, Apple repeatedly stressed the increased autonomy of new iPhones. The increase in the operating time from one battery charge cycle became possible due to the energy-efficient
But the batteries have nothing to do with it. The Chinese component supplier has revealed the real capacity installed in the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR batteries.
- iPhone XS Max: 3174 mAh
- iPhone XS: 2658 mAh
- iPhone XR: 2942 mAh
And now we compare the performance with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, iPhone X and the flagships of 2016.
- iPhone 7: 1960 mAh
- iPhone 8: 1821 mAh
- iPhone 7 Plus: 2900 mAh
- iPhone 8 Plus: 2675 mAh
- iPhone X: 2716 mAh
It turns out that the iPhone XS Max has the most capacious battery in the history of iPhones. This explains the increased autonomy for 1.5 hours compared to last year’s flagship iPhone X.
It is worth mentioning one more important point. Given that the iPhone XR has a very capacious battery, and the resolution of the display is barely enough for Full HD, there are chances that this model will become one of the longest-running in the whole family of iPhones. [ PA ]
