After we got confirmation on the iPhone 12 series’ modest performance gains and RAM capacity via Geekbench and AnTuTu we now have the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s battery size thanks to a listing on China’s TENAA agency.

The largest iPhone to date has a cell with rated capacity of 3,687 mAh which is 282 mAh less than last year’s iPhone 11 Pro Max which boasted a 3,969mAh cell. It’s also listed with 6GB RAM just like we saw on both the Geekebench and AnTuTu listings.

The battery capacities for the rest of the new iPhones were also revealed through official listings on Vodafone Netherlands. The 12 and 12 Pro come with 2,815 mAh cells while the 12 mini packs the smallest battery at 2,227 mAh.

The 12 mini and 12 Pro Max are yet to make their ways to reviewers' hands.
