Apple iPhone XS, XS Max and XR battery capacities revealed

Yordan, 19 September 2018

As always, Apple failed to mention some of the important specs of its new phones, including the battery capacity. But the Chinese regulatory TENAA has stepped up and filled us in.

The listings reveal that the iPhone XS features a slightly smaller battery than its direct predecessor, the iPhone X (2,658 mAh vs. 2,716 mAh) and secondly, the iPhone XS Max has the biggest cell (3.174 mAh) ever to be integrated into an iPhone. Last, but not least, the iPhone XR has a 2,942 mAh battery, and even though that's less than the iPhone XS Max's battery, Apple claims the budget iPhone has the best endurance of the three.

We will see if the company's claims are true once all three models arrive in our office but surely, battery capacity isn't always defining - software and hardware optimizations are just as important, so it's all to play for.

Well nicely said but i still waiting for a flagship specs phone with same battery as Energizer P16K and performance of Monolith Chacconne the best phone that should be ever reeased if the company did not closed. Also for a price of Poco F1. Flagship ...

Exynos s9+ yes. It's been a well known fact & I really don't have time to entertain you further.Do your homework.

Exynos S9+ yup. But hey, you can get very good out of it once you start monkeying around with its settings, uninstall all social media and disable too many services.
