While the test is not scientific, and might not perfectly reflect real-world usage, the video still provides us with a good idea of how the new iPhone 13 models stack up to previous generations in terms of battery life.
The winning device in the test was the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which achieved an impressive 9 hours and 52 minutes of battery life with continuous usage. Maini said this is the longest battery life of any iPhone that he has ever tested.
The complete results were as follows:
- iPhone 13 Pro Max: 9 hours and 52 minutes
- iPhone 13 Pro: 8 hours and 17 minutes
- iPhone 13: 7 hours and 45 minutes
- iPhone 13 mini: 6 hours and 26 minutes
- iPhone 12: 5 hours and 54 minutes
- iPhone 11: 4 hours and 20 minutes
- iPhone SE (2020): 3 hours and 38 minutes
All four iPhone 13 models feature larger battery capacities compared to the previous generation, and the devices are also equipped with a more power efficient A15 Bionic chip. In addition, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max feature a new ProMotion display with an adaptive refresh rate that can drop as low as a power-preserving 10Hz or ramp up to a buttery smooth 120Hz depending on the content displayed on the screen.
All four iPhone 13 models launched today after pre-orders opened last Friday, September 17. Depending on the configuration you’re looking for, it may still be possible to get same-day Apple Store pickup if you didn’t pre-order.
