New certifications of three new Apple branded batteries have been found by MySmartPrice which could be the new batteries of this year’s upcoming iPhones. Registered in Safety Korea, China 3C and Danish UL Demko, model numbers A2741, A2431, and A2466 appear.
It has been rumored that Apple will be releasing four new iPhones later this year, including two midrange devices and two high-end devices. These include the iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch display, iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro featuring 6.1-inch screens, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch display. From the information available, we are able to presume which batteries belong to the iPhone 12 models, with the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro to share the same 2,775mAh battery.
- iPhone 12 (5.4-inch) – A2471 – 2,227mAh
- iPhone 12 Max (6.1-inch) – A2431 – 2,775mAh
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.1-inch) – A2431 – 2,775mAh
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inch) – A2466 – 3,687mAh
Compared to the iPhone 11 series, the battery life isn’t impressive and falls below the current capacities of the 11 series. However, it is important to note that smaller batteries do not necessarily indicate poorer battery life. Apple’s upcoming A14 chip is said to offer unprecedented performance while consuming significantly less power than the current A13 series chips.
The iPhone 12 Series is rumored to feature 5G support, an all-metal frame similar to the iPhone 4, up to 6GB of RAM, and a triple-lens camera system with a LiDAR scanner. All 4 devices are expected to have OLED displays, which were earlier discovered being manufactured by 3 different display companies.
