Apple is notoriously tight-lipped on the subject of its new iPhones' batteries and their exact specs. Now, however, this mystery is being gradually solved through online testing. The latest of these may reveal capacity for the Pro variant of the 13 series, while also providing a teardown for the device and a comparison with its direct predecessor.

Apple seems to prefer making claims relating to run-times over concrete figures in the spec sheets it releases to its potential customers. Therefore, these consumers may end up resorting to certain reliable third-party sources for data such as actual battery-capacity specs to contribute to their buying decisions. Now, a YouTube channel claims to have some of this pertinent information for aspiring iPhone 13 Pro owners.

This variant has a 6.1-inch display, yet exhibits the same upgrades as the largest Pro Max option, Apple's latest camera modes and 120Hz refresh rate included. Therefore, it might indeed be in line for a battery boost as well this year. According to the YouTube channel WekiHome, it definitely did get one.

This vlog's videos are in (subtitled) Chinese; however, it is clear enough that one of its latest posts is a 13 Pro review, with a tear-down tutorial of sorts thrown in for good measure. It reveals that the method involved in the latter has not really changed year-on-year. On the other hand, it also ascertains that the device's battery has, at least.

Apple has gone back to an L-shaped battery type for the 13 series, which implies more power per charge by default. WekiHome claims to have established that its Pro model has a battery of 3,095mAh in capacity, compared to 2,815mAh in the 12 Pro.

Accordingly, this represents an increase of about 10% year-on-year: more or less in line with earlier independent findings. Now, it remains to be seen whether the device can uphold its maker's claims of 1.5 extra hours of use over its predecessor or not during our review.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
