Apple’s iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have larger battery capacities, but the ‘Plus’ variant may see a significant reduction.
Apple is reportedly planning to launch the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro models later this year with a host of changes. As the company has discontinued the iPhone ‘mini’ lineup and is now focusing on the ‘Plus’ model, the entire iPhone lineup is expected to be bigger and taller. Recently, it was reported that the size of the iPhone 16 Pro models is going to increase. Now, it is being suggested that some models of the iPhone 16, including the iPhone 16 Pro Max, will come with a larger battery capacity.
Apple’s iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have larger battery capacities, while the iPhone 16 Plus’s battery capacity may reduce by almost 10%.
There have been recent reports suggesting that the standard models of the iPhone 16 lineup will have a vertical camera layout. Apple seems to be repeating its design from the iPhone 12 for the new device, but it has also created prototypes with a slimmer camera bump that could give the phone a refreshed look. According to a source called Majin Bu on X, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have larger battery capacities compared to the current models.

Despite having the same set of features as the iPhone 16, it’s unclear why Apple has decided to reduce its cell capacity. The iPhone 15 Plus is currently known for having the best battery life of any iPhone and was featured in an advertisement by Apple showcasing its all-day battery performance. the iPhone 15 Plus was awarded the top spot for having the best battery life. However, it’s important to keep in mind that these are just speculations based on initial information. Ultimately, only Apple has the final say on the matter.
The person who leaked information about the iPhone 16 Pro did not provide details about its battery capacity. Recently, the same person shared schematics of the iPhone 16, which shows that it will have a design similar to the iPhone 12, but with a slimmer camera bump. However, it is important to note that the iPhone 16 is still in its early development stage, and the final product may differ from the initial speculations. Moreover, there are no supporting reports related to the iPhone 16’s battery, so it is advisable to take the information with a grain of salt.
