iPhone 16 series battery capacities leak

Vlad, 09 April 2024

The battery capacities for the upcoming iPhone 16 family have been outed today, but keep in mind the source doesn't have a track record for accuracy, so take these with a higher dose of skepticism than we usually recommend.

The iPhone 16 is said to sport a 3,561 mAh cell, 6% larger than its predecessor's, while the iPhone 16 Plus will apparently make do with a 4,006 mAh battery, which is 9% less than what the iPhone 15 Plus had to play with. It's not unheard of for a new model to have a slightly smaller battery, but it's also not something that happens often.

Over on the Pro side of the fence, the iPhone 16 Pro is rumored to come with a 3,355 mAh cell, 2.5% larger than its predecessor's, while the Pro Max will allegedly have a 4,676 mAh battery, 5% larger than the iPhone 15 Pro Max's.

This is the first time battery capacities have been leaked for all four iPhone 16 models, and the numbers match a previous rumor, although that one omitted the iPhone 16 Pro.

Regarding the iPhone 16 Plus' smaller battery, in real life terms this size difference could be mitigated by efficiency improvements in the SoC, screen, or both, so even if this does pan out it's probably no reason to panic.

The iPhone 16 family is expected to be introduced this September at Apple's annual hardware launch event.

He/She is referring to the ability of having two apps on the screen at the same time (split-screen). It's been possible on iPadOS for years but not on iOS.

Yeah you cant split screen multitask on iphone. Dynamic island is not very useful either for me. Many apps do not offer proper pip on iphone.

After using Android and iOS, I still don’t know what the iPhone can’t do in multitasking that you keep going on about. Maybe you should use iOS for once. Multitasking has existed since iOS 4.
