Apple is reportedly gearing up to unveil its next-generation iPhone 12 series in September. The smartphones are then expected to be available to buy in October. As we inch closer to that launch, we are being treated to more new information. The latest leak reportedly reveals the size of the iPhone 12-series batteries.
Three alleged battery units for the Apple iPhone 12 have been certified by a South Korean authority, MyDrivers reports (via GizChina). These units have capacities of 2,227mAh, 2,775mAh, and 3,687mAh. Previous reports claim that Apple’s upcoming series will include four variants – iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
If the certified battery units do belong to the iPhone 12 variants, most of the variants will have a smaller unit than what we find on the current iPhone 11-series. In comparison, the iPhone 11 is powered by a 3,110mAh battery, the iPhone 11 Pro by a 3,046mAh battery, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max by a 3,969mAh unit.
A previous report also claimed that this year Apple may skip bundling a charger with the iPhone 12. Similarly, it may reportedly also leave out the EarPods from the box. As per analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the reason for this is possibly a rise in production costs owing to 5G support. Instead, Apple could decide to separately sell a new 20W USB-C fast charger.
