Apple unveiled three models of its flagship iPhones on September 12 at its Special Event 2018. The event successfully rolled out a 5.8-inch OLED iPhone XS, a 6.1-inch OLED iPhone XR, and a larger 6.5-inch OLED iPhone XS Max variant. Although Apple provided a pointer on the enhanced battery life of the three iPhones, it didn’t mention the exact capacity but today, Chinese regulatory body TENAA has officially launched the capacities.
For starters, iPhone XS sports a 2,658 mAh Li-Po battery with a half an hour longer battery life compared to last year’s iPhone X (2017) which is at 2,716 mAh. Further, the iPhone XR seems to have a mind-boggling battery capacity considering its comparatively cheaper price tag that is a whopping 2,942 mAh lasting around an hour and a half when compared to last year’s iPhone 8 Plus which was till date the largest battery life holder.
Finally, the iPhone XS Max sports the largest battery among the trio i.e. a 3,174 mAh battery which is about 500 mAh larger than iPhone XS while providing an hour long battery life too. Further, the XS Max’ battery is powerful enough to last more than one hour and thirty minutes compared to that of iPhone X which saw an average on-screen time of a little over 4 hours with the sporadic usage of Instagram, graphics intensive games and apps, 4K video recording, audio and video playback, etc. Let’s wait for few days until reviews are available concerning the actual usage by people after the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is available on September 21.
