iPhone 15 battery capacities have improved, reveals China regulator

Apple's new iPhone 15 Pro range

New details revealed in a regulatory filing say that the iPhone 15 Pro Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max have slightly larger batteries than their predecessors.

Apple has made claims for the battery life in its new iPhone 15 range, but it never specifies any details. Now full details of the battery sizes and capacities for the range have been spotted by MySmartPrice in a Chinese regulatory filing.

It had been rumored that the iPhone 15 range would get a substantially improved battery life — and use longer-lasting stacked batteries.. However, according to the filing, the breakdown of iPhone model and battery capacity is:

  • iPhone 15: 3,349mAh, 12.981Wh
  • iPhone 15 Plus: 4,383mAh, 16.950Wh
  • iPhone 15 Pro: 3,274mAh, 12.70Wh
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4,422mAh, 17.109Wh

Each of these figures is slightly higher than that of the equivalent model in the iPhone 14 range. Those were:

  • iPhone 14: 3,279mAh
  • iPhone 14 Plus: 4,325mAh
  • iPhone 14 Pro: 3,200mAh
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max: 4,323mAh

Apple's iPhone 15 range will be available to pre-order later today, with prices staying the same as for the iPhone 14 range.
