After Apple officially launched the iPhone 13 series handsets, it was time to take a look at their battery life to see how the iPhones work In this regard, how much has improved compared to before.
The iPhone 13 series phones went on the market just when we expected them, and in terms of features and capabilities, they are also very good and high-quality phones. But despite the fact that Apple had a lot of opportunity to make fundamental changes, it decided to market these phones with mostly the same look and feel and a slight improvement over the previous one. As a result, we see in the reviews that if you use the iPhone 12 series, it does not make much sense to move to a new series.
But in a series of sections, we see really good progress. For example, battery life, which has been significantly improved thanks to the powerful and low-power A15 processor. Better cameras, of course, which we only saw significantly improved in the Pro and Pro Max models, a model with more internal memory (1 terabyte in the Pro and Pro Max models) and things like that. But what we're going to cover in this article is the battery life of the iPhone 13 and its various models.
As mentioned, the battery was one of the areas in which the new iPhones made good progress. Especially the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which seems to be able to surpass even a series of Android flagships in terms of battery life. It is said that the battery life of the iPhone 13 series has improved so much thanks to the increase in battery capacity as well as the low-power processor that even the iPhone 13 mini is no longer a problem in this regard.

Of course, in this review, the iPhone 12 series phones are also included to see how much the new series has improved compared to the previous one.Phone name Web browsing Watching video from YouTube Playing heavy game iPhone 13 Pro Max <18 hours and 52 minutes 10 hours and 23 minutes 10 hours and 29 minutes iPhone 13 Pro 14 hours and 44 minutes 8 hours and 26 minutes 8 hours and 5 minutes iPhone 13 13 hours and 43 minutes 8 hours and 15 minutes 7 hours and 28 minutes iPhone 13 mini 12 hours and 33 minutes </<strong> 6 hours and 20 minutes 5 hours and 49 minutes iPhone 12 Pro Max 14 hours and 6 minutes 8 hours and 37 minutes 8 hours 1 hour iPhone 12 Pro 12 hours and 35 minutes 6 hours and 48 minutes 6 hours and 46 minutes iPhone 12 12 hours and 33 minutes 6 hours and 38 minutes 6 hours and 46 minutes iPhone 12 mini 10 hours and 56 minutes 5 hours and 10 minutes 5 hours and 10 minutes
As You see, the new iPhones are really better than before, and you can feel the difference. You can see the performance differences of all four series of iPhone 13s more accurately than before below.
- The iPhone 13 Mini had a better overall performance of 1.5 hours than the iPhone 12 Mini
- iPhone 13 outperformed the iPhone 12 by 2.5 hours overall
- iPhone 13 Pro outperformed the iPhone 12 Pro by a total of 1.5 hours
- iPhone 13 The Pro Max outperformed the iPhone 12 Pro Max by a total of 2.5 hours.
Thus we can consider the iPhone 13 series as the best iPhones ever produced in terms of battery life in all areas. They look better than their predecessors. Of course, apart from this table compiled by PhoneArena, Apple also claimed that its iPhones can last a long time in video streaming, which you can see below comparing their performance with the previous series.
- iPhone 13 Pro Max: 25 hours
- iPhone 13 Pro: 20 hours
- iPhone 13: 15 hours
- iPhone 13 Mini: 13 hours
- iPhone 12 Pro Max: 12 hours
- iPhone 12 Pro: 11 hours
- iPhone 12: 11 hours
- iPhone 12 Mini: 10 hours
This development is amazing, especially considering that the iPhone 13 Pro Max performs twice as well as the iPhone 12 Pro Max in streaming video, or that the iPhone 13 Mini was one of the most powerful iPhones of the year. Let the past last longer. Of course, according to Apple, there are differences between power consumption in offline and online video playback, so more tests still need to be done on these phones to find out more about their performance. At the moment, the iPhone 13 and its various models seem to be performing amazingly well in terms of battery life.
iPhone 13 Series Battery Capacity
But the question that arises is why the length Has the battery life of the iPhone 13 series improved so much? Definitely using a low-power processor like the A15 had a big impact, but another important point is the battery itself, which has more capacity than before.
Of course, we do not see any sign of battery capacity on Apple's official website, but An autopsy video released shortly after the phones were released shows what batteries were used in each phone. Based on the information we have, we have to say that unlike the last two years, this time the iPhone 13 is equipped with a larger battery than the iPhone 13 Pro, while these two phones have the same screen, and considering the power of the hardware and Screen quality, we expected the Pro model to have a better battery, which did not happen. Also, the other two things that we obviously expected to see were the iPhone 13 Pro Max battery, which has the highest capacity, and the iPhone 13 Mini, which has the smallest battery. You can see the battery capacity of all four models compared to the previous generation in the table below.Battery capacity iPhone 13 iPhone 12 % difference iPhone 12/13 mini 2406 mAh 2227 mAh 9% increase > iPhone 12/13 3227 mAh 2815 mAh 15% increase iPhone 12/13 Pro 3095 mAh 2815 mAh 11% increase iPhone 12/13 Pro Max 4352 mAh 3687 mAh 19% increase
Of course, increasing the thickness of the iPhone 13 series has not been ineffective in using a higher capacity battery, but progress has been made. A minimum of 10% and a maximum of 20% is rated excellent. Of course, one of the clever things Apple did was to significantly reduce the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 series compared to the iPhone 11 series, which was not justified at all, but this made the battery capacity of the new iPhones more visible. Applaud Apple users for this dramatic upgrade.
Does that mean we shouldn't worry about battery life on Apple's new handsets?
As you can see, all four models of the iPhone 13 from They have grown in terms of capacity and battery life, and that's very good. But whether one or all of the models in this series have problems such as fast discharge is a matter that needs to be determined over time and can not be discussed at this time. Apple always says that its phones can last a day in terms of charge storage, but in practice it remains to be seen which iPhones can last a day, which ones longer, and which ones less than a day.
Speed How is the iPhone 13 charging?
But now that we know the battery capacity of the iPhones, the question arises as to how the iPhone's charging speed has changed compared to before? Naturally, at a time when charger speeds reach 120 watts, having a 20-watt flagship charger is very frustrating, but it still seems enough for Apple users who have had to charge their phones with a 5-watt charger in the recent past.
But Apple's fast charger, which is also 20 watts, the company claims can charge iPhones up to 50% in 30 minutes. A speed that is relatively good. We say relatively because considering that a phone like the OnePlus 9 Pro will be fully charged in 40 minutes. But is this how all iPhones work? See the table below.Phone name iPhone 13 Mini iPhone 13 iPhone 13 Pro IPhone 13 Pro Max 5 minutes 8% 8% 7% 8% < 10 minutes 18% 18% 17% 18% strong> 15 minutes 29% 29% 27% 27% 30 minutes strong 58% 56% 55% 53% 45 minutes 78% 74% 76% 74% 1 hour 88% > 84% 86% 85% 1 hour and 15 minutes 96% 92% 95% 93% 1 hour and 30 minutes 99% 96% 98% 98% Full charge 1 hour and 40 minutes 1 hour And 55 minutes 1 hour and 38 minutes 1 hour and 40 minutes
As you can see, in 30 minutes all iPhones are more than 50% They were charged and this is great. Of course, for iPhone 13 Pro Max owners, because the high-capacity battery of their phone with the same charger can be charged up to 50% at the same time.
It rejects it gets slower and slower. To make sure of this, the test was repeated and it was found that the charging speed of the iPhones really slows down as it approaches the end. Of course, it seems that Apple has done this itself so that when the phone reaches a point of charge, it charges more slowly so as not to damage it.
For example, the user receives the actual speed of 18 to 20 watts when The phone charge is less than 50%. Above that, the iPhone's charging speed is limited to 14 watts to reach 70%. After that, the charging speed reaches only 9 watts to charge the phone to 80, which is the standard level that if the phone is charged at a high speed from then on, it is detrimental to the useful life of the battery. For this reason, when the phone reaches 80% charge, the charging speed is limited to 5 watts. It even seems to slow down even more in the final values.
All this has been done to protect the iPhone's battery. So you can't criticize Apple too much. As mentioned, the biggest damage to the battery occurs when the charger speed is high in the final part of the phone charge. Therefore, if you are looking to keep your phone battery healthy, it is recommended that you charge it up to 80% and no more. Also, the minimum charge rate should reach 30%.
