Apple officially announced the iPhone 15 series. As always, the company has not released the battery capacity this time. However, the company revealed other specifications such as RAM, storage, processor, camera specs, etc., so if you are curious before making a purchase decision or want to know.

The battery capacity of the iPhone 15 series has been revealed. This comes after the China regulation certification before the device goes on sale. We now have the exact battery capacity of the iPhone 15 Series. This shows that Apple has increased the device’s battery capacity compared to last year’s model.

Apple iPhone 15 Series Battery Capacity

Here are the exact battery capacities of the iPhone 15 series, which includes both pro and non-pro variants, showing an approximately 2.3% increase in battery capacity compared to last year.

Apple iPhone 15 Series Battery Capacity
  • iPhone 15: 3349mAh (12.981Wh)
  • iPhone 15 Plus: 4383mAh (16.650Wh)
  • iPhone 15 Pro: 3274mAh (12.70Wh)
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4422mAh (17.109Wh)

If we compare it to the previous generation, the iPhone 14 had a battery capacity of 3279mAh, the Plus had 4235mAh, the Pro had 3274mAh, and the Pro Max had 4323mAh. With the upgrade, a slight improvement can be noticed in terms of processor and power efficiency. The iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro reportedly have the same 27W peak charging speed as the iPhone 14/14 Pro, but there are reports that the iPhone 15 models may support up to 30W charging speeds. However, these reports need to be more accurate.

Last year, ChargerLab concluded that Apple’s 30W USB-C power adapter could charge the iPhone 14 Pro models at speeds up to 27W, and this will likely remain the same case for the iPhone 15 Pro. Additionally, all iPhone 15 Series can charge up to 50% in 30 minutes with a 20W or higher charger.

The battery and display will offer better battery life, so these upgrades. The iPhone 15 series has also gone for pre-order in several regions. The company did not announce the battery capacity publicly, but the Chinese regulatory database revealed that the iPhone claims to have 29 hours of video playback and 95 hours of audio. In contrast, the iPhone 15 Plus has 26 hours of video playback and 100 hours of audio.

On the other hand, the iPhone 15 comes with 20 hours of video playback and 80 hours of audio. The iPhone 15 Series has experienced more battery capacity loss than previous years. As the iPhone 14 Series reportedly loses battery capacity faster than previous years, iPhones are around 80% of the original capacity in less than a year. Hopefully, we will not see something similar with the iPhone 15 series.
