Apple’s upcoming iPhone 13 lineup will feature bigger batteries than its current flagship lineup, iPhone 12. The larger batteries would result in an even longer battery life than what is currently offered by iPhone 12. All four models will be gaining more battery capacity over their iPhone 12 counterparts, according to reliable leaker @L0vetodream.
iPhone 13 lineup will feature bigger batteries, according to a new leak
As per an image shared by serial leaker @L0vetodream on Twitter, we can see three battery capacities, covering the model numbers A2653, A2656, and A2660.
The three battery capacities are listed as 2,406mAh, 3,095mAh, and 4,352mAh. The 2,406mAh battery is a significant upgrade when compared to the 2,227mAh battery featured in iPhone 12 mini. The 3,095mAh battery is an impressive upgrade from the 2,815mAh battery featured in iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. The most significant improvement is the 4,352mAh battery compared to the 3,687mAh battery used in iPhone 12 Pro Max.
This leak can be corroborated by a note TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote to investors in March. According to Kuo, all four models of the new iPhone 13 series will feature larger batteries than the current iPhone 12 models.
All four iPhone 13 models will feature larger battery capacities compared to iPhone 12 models, according to Kuo, thanks to space-saving design choices such as integrating the SIM card slot with the motherboard and reducing the thickness of some Face ID components.
Keeping @L0vetodream’s track record in mind, the leak has a high chance of being accurate. However, there is no guarantee which direction Apple could go with iPhone 13’s battery. We will have to wait and see until Apple releases the lineup this fall.
It is expected that Apple’s upcoming iPhone lineup will be identical to iPhone 12 with 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch, 6.1-inch Pro, and 6.7-inch 13 Pro Max models. Other rumors point at the lineup featuring a faster A15 chip, in-display Touch ID, a smaller notch, and 120Hz “ProMotion” displays. It has also been rumored that all iPhone models in the lineup will feature sensor-shift stabilization, including the non-Pro models.
