The iPhone 16 would have more battery than the current iPhone 15

The rumors of the next iPhone 16 continue! Although we have not yet seen this new consignment presented to society, little by little we are learning new key information about them. Today it is the turn of the internal part of the device, with the batteries being the protagonists of this article. Do you want to know how much battery the new generation iPhone will have? We tell you about it in this article!

If the river makes a noise its because water is running. And in the case of the leaks, it has once again been the already well-known X user Majin Bu, who has shared some key information in his profile. In his posts he talks about the capacity of the batteries of the different iPhone 16 models. But he has also shared schematics of the shape that the battery component will have.

More specifically, in the case of the iPhone 16 Pro Max, it is observed how the internal arrangement of the battery has changed significantly. Looking at this next generation, there is talk of an internal redesign, in terms of how the components are distributed. Will this battery change be a way to have more space inside? We see it below!

These are going to be the battery capacities

According to what user Magín Bu shares in his post, the battery capacities of the next iPhone models will be the following:

  • iPhone 16 base model: 3,561 mAh battery.
  • iPhone 16 Plus: 4,006 mAh battery.
  • iPhone 16 Pro Max: 4,676 mAh battery

If we compare the figures with the current models, the iPhone 15 family has the following figures:

  • iPhone 15: 3,049 mAh battery
  • iPhone 15 Plus: 4,383 mAh battery
  • iPhone 15 Pro Max: 4,441 mAh battery

Only in the case of the iPhone 16 Plus will we have less energy storage capacity. Specifically, 377 mAh would be lost compared to the iPhone 15 Plus model. But if we look at the base iPhone 16 and the iPhone 16 Pro Max, we are going to gain 512 mAh in the first and 235 mAh in the second.

However, what happens with the iPhone 16 model? At the moment, according to what he has published in his post on X, Majin Bu, he says that he has not been able to obtain information about this model. Therefore, we only know what would happen to these three. However, the mAh figures are not the only thing he has released.

Based on the information I managed to obtain, the new iPhone 16 will have a 3561 mAh battery, while the 16 plus should have a 4006 mAh battery and the 16 Pro Max, should be equipped with a 4676 mAh battery that is no longer L- shaped due to the redesign of the internal structure… https://t.co/6s64Wi9XSs https://t.co/T7VuhQ6Brs

The redesign of the iPhone 16 Pro is clear

One of the big movements that were predicted for the iPhone 16 was an internal redesign of the components. New locations for antennas, new buttons on the outside and, ultimately, a significant change compared to the iPhone 15 Pro. The current models have an L-shaped battery. In fact, he also shows in his post images of how these batteries are housed inside the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Looking at the iPhone 16 Pro Max, a new battery is observed, which has more capacity, and whose occupied surface is much better distributed. “The battery no longer has an L shape due to the structural redesign that I have mentioned,” explains the leaker, alluding to past information.
