The month of September is approaching and with it the arrival of the new iPhone 16. However, we have no doubt that throughout WWDC24 and the following months, some more information will leak into the source code of the betas of iOS 18. We know many rumors around the new iPhone 16. In fact, it is expected that the iPhone 16 Pro Max has the largest battery ever seen in an iPhone and a few days ago the reason was found. And it seems that This new battery will have higher energy density in the same space, thus increasing the autonomy of the device.

The iPhone 16 Pro Max battery will have more energy density

A few weeks ago the capacities of the different batteries of the four expected models of the iPhone 16 were leaked. There was no surprise regarding a general increase in capacities except for the iPhone 16 Plus whose capacity will decrease by 8.6% compared to the iPhone 15 Plus.

However, today the news is in the engineering around the battery of the iPhone 16 Pro Max, which would increase by 5.7% compared to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, reaching 4676 mAh according to the latest leaked data. This large battery with this great autonomy is achieved, according to new information from Ming Chi-Kuo, thanks to a increasing the energy density of the cells that make up the battery. This increase would mean that the autonomy could be increased with the same battery size or maintain the autonomy of the previous generation by decreasing the battery size.

In addition, Apple is apparently going to try to test a new type of stainless steel coating on the iPhone 16 Pro Max batteries in order to check its effectiveness for reduce overheating. If the result is good, it is likely that all iPhone 17 models will acquire this new battery configuration.
