Although both models officially launch on Friday, October 23, teardown videos have been surfacing on Chinese social media a few days ahead of that date. Those clips have already confirmed that the iPhone 12 packs a smaller Taptic Engine and a Qualcomm X55 modem.

Now the latest teardown, a new Chinese-language video posted to YouTube on Thursday, confirms that the battery capacities of the two models that launch on Friday are the same.





According to the video, both 6.1-inch models share the same 2,815 mAh battery. That explains why both models offer identical battery life estimates per Apple's specifications.

Earlier in October, Brazilian regulatory filings confirmed that the iPhone 12 packs a 2,815 mAh battery and the smaller iPhone 12 mini has a 2,227 mAh battery. On Wednesday, another regulatory filing in China indicated that the iPhone 12 Pro Max sports a 3,687 mAh battery.

Since Apple doesn't officially list mAh specifications for its iPhone, Thursday's video marks the first time that users have a full picture at the battery capacities of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro lineup.

    Incredible how Tim did it again. The unabated, inclusive use of a battery in a phone. 
    Exciting times !

    But won't the bigger screen in the Pro be a larger drain on the battery? How come both phones have the same battery life?

    I still don’t understand, based on this, how AppleInsider managed to get over an hour more battery life out of the iPhone 12 Pro compared to the regular 12.
