iPhone 12 Pro Max teardown validates suspicions about its battery capacity

Somebody behind a Weibo account (by means of SeekDevice) dismantled the iPhone 12 Pro Max in front of its release tomorrow and the teardown has uncovered the battery capacity, something which Apple never officially reveals.

The L-shaped battery of the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max has a capacity of 3,687mAh, as was reputed previously. Apple prepared its predecessor, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, with a greater 3,969mAh cell, despite the fact that it has a more modest 6.5-inch display and is LTE-only.

The iPhone 12 series supposedly doesn’t include a refresh rate of 120Hz in view of battery life concerns, given that 5G is something of a power hog itself and Apple would not like to expand consumption by adding a high refresh rate to the mix. All the models have smaller capacities than their last year’s counterparts, probably in light of the fact that Apple is relying on its A14 Bionic to improve power proficiency.

The chip has clearly been manufactured using Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s 5nm process which offers around a 15 percent performance improvement or 30% decrease in power consumption.

The new phones additionally have a feature called Smart Data Mode which automatically switches somewhere in the range of 4G and 5G relying upon the task at hand.

All things considered, our battery test has demonstrated that the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 don’t actually offer stellar battery life, and it is interesting to perceive how the greatest phone in the lineup fares in this regard.

Back to the teardown, it has additionally uncovered that the size of the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s motherboard is equivalent to that of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Some different internals were likewise revealed during the process yet no data has been shared about them.
