It turns out, the previously detailed battery and RAM capacities of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models were incorrect. Now that the phones have passed through TENAA — a Chinese regulatory body, these details have now been made available.
The iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 boast of major battery life improvements over the iPhone XS and iPhone XR from last year. While Apple has used a more power-efficient display and chip inside these phones, the jump in battery life is also due to the use of bigger batteries. It was rumored that Apple was adding bigger batteries to its iPhone 11 lineup for reverse wireless charging. While the feature did not ship due to efficiency reasons, the bigger battery means the new iPhones deliver great battery life.
Below is a rundown of the battery capacities on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro:
- iPhone 11 – 3,110mAh
- iPhone 11 Pro – 3,046mAh
- iPhone 11 Pro Max – 3,969mAh
The iPhone 11 ships with 3110mAh battery. For comparison, the iPhone XS, which the iPhone 11 replaces, features a 2942mAh battery.
The iPhone 11 Pro ships with a massive 3,046mAh battery — a sizeable jump from the 2658mAh battery inside the iPhone XS. No wonder then that the handset is able to last four hours longer than its predecessor. A jump of around 450mAh is no small deal.
The iPhone 11 Pro Max ships with the biggest battery found inside an iPhone till date at 3,969mAh. That’s again a sizeable jump from the 3174mAh found inside the iPhone XS Max. At almost 4,000mAh, the battery capacity of the iPhone 11 Pro rivals some of Android flagships out there like the Galaxy S10, OnePlus 7 Pro, etc.
All three phones also ship with 4GB RAM. While the iPhone XS series also features 4GB RAM, the iPhone 11 only shipped with 3GB RAM. A previous report had inaccurately predicted that the iPhone 11 Pro series shipped with 6GB RAM but that’s not the case.
Apple bundles an 18W USB-C fast charger with the iPhone 11 Pro series which will ensure that the phones are able to charge from 0-50% in just 30 minutes. As for the iPhone 11, it continues to ship with a 5W charger so charging it from 0-100% is easily going to take upwards of 2.5 hours.
