'iPhone 13' will have bigger batteries than the iPhone 12 family, leaker claims

The "iPhone 13" family will have bigger batteries than the iPhone 12, a leaker claims, with all four models apparently gaining more battery capacity over their similar-sized counterparts.

It seems that one of the benefits of the next iPhone generation could be longer battery life. Apple is said to be preparing three larger-capacity batteries for use in the "iPhone 13" range, with three different capacities mirroring the levels of the current iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro range.

According to an image from Chinese social media shared by serial leaker "@L0vetodream" on Twitter, the three are three battery capacities, covering the model numbers A2653, A2656, and A2660. These model numbers may relate to the iPhone models themselves.

The three battery capacities are listed as 2,406mAh, 3,095mAh, and 4,352mAh. When compared against comparable models, the 2,406 is a step up from the 2,227mAh used in the iPhone 12 mini.

"iPhone 13 Pro Max"4,352mAh

The 4,352mAh is a large jump from the 3,687mAh unit used in the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and the 3,095mAh is a solid improvement on the 2,815 battery used in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.

While the rumors seem plausible given @L0vetodream's good track record, there's no guarantee the leak is genuine until Apple releases new products this fall.
