All iPhone battery capacities in one list

Have you ever noticed that in their marketing materials, Apple never reveals the technical specifications of the iPhone battery’s capacity?

Instead, they emphasize the practical time gained compared to previous generations with each new release.

The exact specifications are only made known when independent companies, like iFixIt, take apart the device on launch day and reveal the hidden details.

For those who want to know the exact mAh of their iPhone 7, 8, Plus, 11, X, or any other model, we have compiled a list of all the battery capacities for all models released to date for your reference.

This article will be updated with each new model release, so you can always stay informed.

iPhone Battery Capacity

On Apple’s website, the device specifications are presented in a practical and user-friendly manner, even for those who are not tech-savvy.

The website states that the iPhone battery lasts “up to 30 minutes longer compared to the iPhone X,” which is the information most users are interested in.

However, if you’re curious about the nominal capacity of iPhone batteries, this article has got you covered.

Check the list below to find the iPhone model you’re interested in and view its respective capacity in mAh.

Battery life

The performance and battery life of a device depend not only on its physical capacity, but also on system optimization and processor efficiency.

What does this mean?

It means that sometimes the charging capacity may be lower on a model, but if its processor consumes less energy, the daily battery life will be longer.

And Apple always strives to improve the internal architecture of its devices so that there is less power consumption, which directly affects battery life.

The system also contributes to this.

The great advantage of the same company producing both hardware and software is that this allows Apple to optimize iOS more and more for the capabilities and needs of the iPhone.

That’s why the iPhone doesn’t need as much RAM to do the same thing as an Android device, and less RAM also means less power consumption.

For this reason, the battery capacity of the iPhone is relative.

It cannot be directly compared to the capacities of Android devices, as the consumption is different.

But of course, we all agree that Apple could easily put a little more battery in its devices, so we can use them for longer before having to look for a power outlet, right? 😉

Battery health

It’s important to keep in mind that every battery has a limited lifespan and will degrade over time.

Therefore, the capacities listed here are for brand new devices. The actual capacity will depend on how the device has been used.

This means that the battery of an iPhone 7, for example, may not have the same capacity in 2022.

The iOS system has a battery health indicator, which shows the degree of degradation it has experienced.

The indication of maximum capacity decreases gradually as the device is used.

Once it drops below 80%, the system slows down to prevent unexpected shut-downs, even if there’s still some charge left. According to

Apple, the iPhone battery can endure up to 500 charge cycles before reaching 80% capacity, but in reality, it often lasts even longer.

Therefore, it is ideal to replace your iPhone battery when it reaches a capacity of less than 80%. This way, you can extend its life and keep it functioning optimally for a longer period.

Regardless of your battery’s current state, you can follow some tips to extend its life. Let’s take a look:
