In a much-anticipated reveal, Apple has introduced the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, boasting noteworthy enhancements to the battery life and overall performance of each model. During its keynote event, Apple claimed that the iPhone 15 series features “all-day battery life,” but they left the specifics regarding improvements over the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models unaddressed. Now, following the announcement, we have more concrete data.
According to Apple, the iPhone 15 series comes equipped with larger batteries and more efficient processors compared to their predecessors. Apple’s official website states that the iPhone 15 Pro Max can achieve up to 29 hours of video playback, making it the model with the most extended battery life among the four versions unveiled on September 12th. In contrast, the iPhone 15 Pro offers up to 23 hours of video playback.
The iPhone 15 Plus, another device with an impressive battery, can reach up to 26 hours of video playback. Meanwhile, the standard iPhone 15 provides up to 20 hours of video playback, making it the model with the shortest battery life among the quartet. It’s essential to note that all of them feature USB-C connectors and support fast charging up to 20 watts. Additionally, they offer the convenience of MagSafe charging, with speeds of up to 15 watts. These are the details Apple provides regarding the battery life of all the new models.
One interesting revelation is that the battery life of the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro models remains identical to that of their predecessors, the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. However, it’s worth considering that this year’s models come with new features that may impact battery consumption. Therefore, the increased capacity and processor efficiency improvements may have allowed the iPhone 15 series to maintain the excellent battery life offered by their predecessors.
In comparison to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, there are notable differences in battery life. Some models now provide up to 9 hours more of battery life. The iPhone 15 Pro Max, for instance, offers up to 29 hours of video playback compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s 20 hours.
The iPhone 15 Pro, on the other hand, delivers up to 6 hours more of video playback compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which can last up to 17 hours on a single charge.
Interestingly, the iPhone 15 Plus boasts the same battery life as its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Plus. Meanwhile, the standard iPhone 15 surpasses its predecessor, the iPhone 12, by up to three hours of video playback.
