How long will the iphone 12 battery last? Detailed data comparison

by John A. marketing

Three years ago, in the usual fashion, Apple unveiled the new generation of iPhones - the iPhone 12 series - at their headquarters. This lineup comprised four models: iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max. Undoubtedly, they once again became the best-selling smartphone models of that year. It's because of the immense popularity of the iPhone that discussions about various aspects of old and new iPhone models continue each year. One of the hot topics among these discussions is battery performance.

While the battery aspects of the iPhone 12 have been discussed extensively in the past, it might still be a first-time revelation for new users.

How long does the iPhone 12 battery last?

The official Apple website provides usage time data for the four iPhone 12 models as follows:

iPhone 12 Mini: Up to 15 hours of video playback, 10 hours of streaming playback, 50 hours of audio playback.

iPhone 12: Up to 17 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streaming playback, 65 hours of audio playback.

iPhone 12 Pro: Up to 17 hours of video playback, 11 hours of streaming playback, 65 hours of audio playback.

iPhone 12 Pro Max: Up to 20 hours of video playback, 12 hours of streaming playback, 80 hours of audio playback.

However, according to data provided by some professional review experts, the actual usage time is shorter.

When using 5G:

iPhone 12 Mini: 7 hours and 28 minutes.

iPhone 12: 8 hours and 25 minutes.

iPhone 12 Pro: 9 hours and 6 minutes.

iPhone 12 Pro Max: 10 hours and 53 minutes.

When using 4G:

iPhone 12: 10 hours and 23 minutes.

iPhone 12 Pro: 11 hours and 24 minutes.

When using only Wi-Fi without a SIM card:

iPhone 12 and 12 Pro have usage times about an hour and a half longer than what Apple claims on their website.

In summary, calculations show that in comparison to 4G networks, battery life with iPhone 12 is roughly 20% shorter on 5G networks. Using only Wi-Fi without a SIM card extends the phone's usage time.

iPhone 12 battery capacity

The battery capacity for the iPhone 12 models is as follows:

iPhone 12 Mini: 2227mAh.

iPhone 12: 2775mAh.

iPhone 12 Pro: 2815mAh.

iPhone 12 Pro Max: 3687mAh.

Apple's smartphone battery capacities aren't considered high in the realm of smartphones, and in some cases, they are even lower. However, with the iOS's good balance and excellent battery technology, iPhone batteries manage to provide similar usage times to Android phones with much larger capacities.

iPhone 12 battery replacement cost

If you're fond of your iPhone 12 and its battery's lifespan runs out, it's necessary to consider replacing it with an original iPhone battery. However, this comes at a somewhat steep price of $89 on the official website, roughly 10% of the cost of a new phone. Alternatively, you could explore trading in your old iPhone for a newer model by paying an additional fee.

On the other hand, if you're looking for a lower-cost battery replacement option, you could go for third-party iPhone battery suppliers. These products, with capacities 10-30% higher than the original, retail for $30-40, only about half the cost of the official battery. It's important to note that when choosing a higher capacity iPhone battery, quality judgment should be made based on certain aspects.

Who manufactures the iPhone 12 batteries?

Currently, major battery manufacturers for Apple include Desay, Sunwoda, and Xin Pu Technology in China. In the past two years, BYD has also become a supplier to Apple.

Desay and Sunwoda are the suppliers for the original iPhone 12 batteries. Desay produces batteries for iPhone 12 Mini, while Sunwoda produces batteries for iPhone 12, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max.

Additionally, companies like DEJI, a smartphone battery manufacturer, also supply iPhone 12 batteries. They are a good choice if you're considering bulk purchases of iPhone batteries.
