The iPhone 12 are once again the protagonists of indiscretions that are not reassuring as regards the capacity of the batteries equipped on the various models of the top of the range 2020 line from Apple.
The certification body once again provides us with new details SafetyKorea – already protagonist of the previous sighting -, where it seems that the batteries of the iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro have been certified, the two 6.1 "models that – in addition to the diagonal of the screen – should share the same 2,775 unit mAh (identified by the acronym A2431).
This detail had previously emerged from other certification bodies – more precisely the 3C -, therefore the new sighting is a further confirmation of the fact that the two 6.1 "iPhones will be equipped with smaller capacity batteries than their current counterparts.
We recall, in fact, that iPhone 11 is equipped with a 3,110 mAh battery and iPhone 11 Pro with 3,046 mAh. These capabilities have allowed the two devices to offer respectable autonomy (you can deepen the discussion on the 11 and 11 Pro reviews). Will it be enough to make changes such as the transition to a 5nm Apple A14 Bionic SoC (compared to the 7nm of the A13 Bionic) and the use of new generation OLED panels to compensate for these differences? This we will find out only in the testing phase.
Staying on the subject of evidence, one wonders when it will be possible to touch Apple's new smartphones with your hand: even in this respect, reassuring news does not seem to arrive. The latest news comes from the Japanese portal MacOtakara, who usually report news from the production chain of the various companies. His forecasts are not always reliable, however those of today are in line with what was reported by other sources and analysts.
More specifically, there is talk of a postponed presentation event in October and the launch of the 5G models in November, while the 4G variants should be available a few weeks after the announcement. We can therefore imagine an event in mid-October, or about 1 month later than the usual roadmap, even if this scenario is far from confirmed. In the past, Apple has tried to keep the September presentation event stable, even at the cost of shipping its terminals several weeks (even months) away, as happened in the case of iPhone X and iPhone XR.
