All iPhone 13 models should be entitled to a larger battery, and therefore be more autonomous.

Rumors are starting to accumulate around the next Apple iPhones. Expected in September, the iPhone 13 should offer a number of new features, starting with a new A15 chip, larger photo blocks, a reduced notch and the arrival of a 120 Hz refresh rate on the Pro models. Above all, the whole range of iPhone 13 could benefit from a much larger battery!

Towards a more autonomous iPhone 13?

Autonomy has long been one of the black spots of Apple smartphones, if not the major flaw. Finally, after having reached absolute finesse and suffered a controversy with the #batterygate, Apple came back somewhat and began to take into account the autonomy of its devices. Thus, since the iPhone 11, Apple’s smartphone no longer has too much to be ashamed of its competitors, and the most imposing versions stamped “Max” are even among the most autonomous smartphones on the market.

However, if Apple has managed to raise the bar thanks to ever more economical chips and powerful software optimization tips, the firm has never drastically increased the size of its batteries. While competing smartphones are starting to regularly reach 5,000 mAh, Apple has, for the time being, never exceeded 4,000 mAh. The iPhone 12 Pro Max, the most imposing model in the current catalog, thus has a battery of 3,687 mAh, a figure that could seem completely ridiculous in the Android world which has long since passed the 4,000 mAh mark, if it’s no more.

Up to 18% larger batteries

With the iPhone 13, Apple could finally decide to review the size of its batteries. A leak reveals their capabilities to us, depending on the models. Thus, the iPhone 13 Pro Max would be the first to pass the 4000 mAh bar, with a 4352 mAh battery, an increase of 18% compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 13/13 Pro would benefit from a 3095 mAh battery, a figure up 10% compared to the iPhone 12/12 Pro. Finally, the iPhone 13 Mini would be entitled to a 2,406 mAh battery, 8% more compared to the iPhone 12 Mini.

As a result, these new batteries should accommodate slightly thicker frames this year. The gain in autonomy could ultimately rather be measured on the Pro models, which will for the first time include a 120 Hz compatible panel, which consumes more energy.
