iPhone 11 / Pro / Max battery capacity: size revealed

iPhone 11 / Pro / Max battery capacity: size revealed
The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are here, and while Apple has officially unveiled the devices, the company does not disclose a few interesting details that you might want to know.

For some reason Apple has decided that users should not know about the amount of RAM and the actual battery capacity of its iPhones, and for years, we have had to rely on teardowns and filings with telecom regulators to learn those numbers.

Now, just a couple of days after the launch of the devices, we seem to have this information and Apple has indeed delivered some nice upgrades to RAM and battery sizes. The information comes from prolific leaker @onLeaks.

iPhone 11 (2019) vs iPhone XR (2018)

The iPhone 11, the successor to last year's iPhone XR, has a slightly bigger battery and now comes with 4GB of RAM which will help keep more applications running in the background. Apple officially only says that this new iPhone has 1 hour longer battery life than the XR, so it admits to a slight upgrade.

iPhone 11 Pro (2019) vs iPhone XS (2018)

One of the bigger upgrades in the iPhone 11, the successor to the iPhone XS, is a significantly bigger battery that elevates its battery life above that of the regular iPhone 11. Regulatory filings also confirm that Apple has included a quite reasonable 6GB of RAM on its smaller Pro iPhone. For years, Apple has been behind the pack in the amount of RAM and it now finally seems to at least catch up with some Android rivals in this regard.

iPhone 11 Pro Max (2019) vs iPhone XS Max (2018)

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is the longest lasting iPhone this year. It now features a significantly bigger battery, and Apple's official numbers say that it lasts more than the iPhone 11 and the smaller iPhone 11 Pro. Last year, that was not the case: then, the affordable XR was actually the longest lasting iPhone.

The Pro Max also has 6GB of RAM on board, 50% more than last year's version.

More ram? Surprise on that. Still keeping current Max for another year or two.

I will keep my Xs as well for another year. I will upgrade once Apple goes for a 120hz screen and gets rid of the notch. Nevertheless, I am sure that the new cameras are great. I also applaud Apple for the new Camera Interface and the seamless transition between the new cameras. I think that is quite unique in the industry and shows that Apple thought that through.

New camera interface is really good, especially the fact how you can switch from photo mode to video instantly or back to photo mode from video.

Shame vital camera settings are still buried deep inside the settings menu, not in the camera app where they should be.

I’m tempted to upgrade from my Max but Apple is making it difficult to stay on the platform. They keep revoking all my essential apps. Maybe I’ll just keep my max and get the new pixel 4xl.

I wonder how these new phones be compared to android with 4500mah. My Max’s battery is awesome, so 5 hours longer is super dope.

Lol that's pathetic. Hypothetical extra hours don't mean anything in real world usage. My note 10+ lasts a MINIMUM of 14 hours before it gets to 20%, and that's streaming and heavy use. Good luck sheep, you're still going to be disappointed. Always settling for less. Apple is the new Blackberry

14 hours minimum before you get to 20%. That's really interesting. You must have a special note 10+ that has a bigger battery than every other note 10+ on this planet.
