Apple recently launched its highly anticipated iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models at the Wonderlust event, introducing a host of camera and internal upgrades, as well as the new Action Button featured on the 'Pro' models. While the powerful A17 Pro chip has generated excitement, questions linger about its power consumption and its impact on battery life. Apple's announcement did not include details about battery capacities, but regulatory data suggests that all four models have seen increases in battery size.
iPhone 15 Pro Max boasts the largest battery capacity ever seen in an iPhone
Before the Wonderlust event, rumors circulated about Apple's plans to boost the battery capacities of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models. Initial reports hinted at a substantial double-digit increase, but recent findings from the Chinese regulatory database, via MySmartPrice, paint a different picture. Here's a breakdown of the battery capacity changes compared to the iPhone 14 lineup:
- iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4,422mAh (up from 4,323mAh on iPhone 14 Pro Max).
- iPhone 15 Pro: 3,274mAh (up from 3,200mAh on iPhone 14 Pro).
- iPhone 15 Plus: 4,383mAh (up from 4,323mAh on iPhone 14 Plus).
- iPhone 15: 3,349mAh (up from 3,279mAh on iPhone 14).
These incremental battery size increases, combined with the new A17 Pro chip, promise enhanced battery life for the iPhone 15 Pro models. Notably, Apple managed to reduce the weight of these models, despite the larger batteries, thanks to the innovative Titanium build replacing the previous stainless steel one.
It's worth noting that Apple has maintained the same charging speeds, both wired and wireless, as the previous year's models, despite the introduction of a new USB-C port. The entire iPhone 15 lineup is now available for pre-order, although shipping estimates indicate potential delays.
