Аn insider published information about the batteries of the iPhone 16 series smartphones on the Chinese social network Weibo, noting that they will generally be more powerful than the batteries of the iPhone 15 series phones.

Note that the batteries of iPhone 15 series smartphones have the following capacities:

  • iPhone 15: 3349 mAh,
  • iPhone 15 Plus: 4383 mAh,
  • iPhone 15 Pro: 3274 mAh,
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4422 mAh.

According to the insider, the batteries of all iPhone 16 series smartphones will have the following capacity:

  • iPhone 16: 3561 mAh (up 6.3%),
  • iPhone 16 Plus: 4006 mAh (down 8.6%),
  • iPhone 16 Pro: 3355 mAh (up 2.5%),
  • iPhone 16 Pro Max: 4,676 mAh (up 5.7%).

As 9to5Mac reports, these battery capacity numbers don't paint the full picture of what you can actually expect from an iPhone's battery life.

According to the site, when it comes to increasing battery capacity, Apple can manage this change in two ways. The company could focus on increasing battery life and opt for a lower capacity. It can also do the opposite and keep battery life and performance roughly the same while increasing performance significantly.

The source also notes that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are rumored to have slightly larger screens than their predecessors. This means that, given the battery capacity, more power will likely be used to power the larger display.
