iPhone 11 Pro Max has 23% more battery capacity than the Pro version

In the presentation of the new iPhone, Apple approached in a very exhaustive way the main novelties that these machines bring. The big bet is even on photography, supported by a new camera configuration.


Of course, there is much more to sustain these new capabilities, especially in the field of hardware. One of these points, the battery, is now more detailed with new information. The difference between the new iPhones is very big.

Apple has always tried to keep the hardware on the iPhone a secret. It does not reveal RAM or battery values, thus keeping the doubt about what is present in these machines.

Of course, these values appear later, but always in an unofficial way and fruit of the disassembly of the equipment. However, and as a result of a registration of these new iPhone models, more data came up.

It was in the registration of the equipment delivered to TENAA, the Chinese telecommunications regulator, that we now had access to much more information. These documents reveal that the new 11 Pro Max has a battery of 3,969 mAh and 4GB of RAM.

iPhone 11 Pro Max with surprisingly large battery capacity

This represents 1,000 mAh more than the iPhone XR, 1,311 mAh more than the XS and almost 800 mAh more than the XS Max model. It has even more 859 mAh than the iPhone 11, whose displayed data reveals a 3,110 mAh battery and the same 4GB of RAM.

However, the revealed information shows that the iPhone 11 Pro also has 4GB of RAM and a 3,046 mAh battery. This is how the Apple alignment for 2019 is known.

This is also how Apple supports the information revealed in Keynote. The Pro Max model can last up to 5 hours longer than the XS Max, while the Pro model will last up to 4 hours longer than the iPhone XS.

Less RAM than the competition... the same (or better) performance

It is also confirmed the information that it has not yet been this year that the iPhone has made the leap to 6GB of RAM. Apple will have understood that this is the ideal configuration and that the present RAM is sufficient.

It is still early to know if these new battery values represent even this gain in useful life in the new iPhone models. It's just before the 20th and the arrival of these in the hands of new customers. Then everything will be proven and confirmed.
