Default First iPhone 12 teardown confirms smaller battery

Welcome to drastic throttling of the iPhone 12 series in about a year!

"*All of these batteries are _smaller* than the batteries*
*that were used in the iPhone 11 lineup*"
https://www.macrumors.com/2020/10/22/iphone-12-12-pro-teardown-video-battery/

Never forget Apple's battery life claims have always been bull****.
o Nor that Apple publicly admitted throttling is to _shorten_ device life!

Here are the battery capacities:
o iPhone 12 mini 2,227mAh
o iPhone 12 2,815mAh
o iPhone 12 Pro 2,815mAh
o iPhone 12 Pro Max 3,687mAh

*Expect drastic throttling of the iPhone 12 to kick in after about a year!*

"An iPhone 12 battery test shows that the new models take a huge hit
to their battery-life when using 5G data."

o iPhone 12 battery test shows 2-hour hit when using 5G
https://9to5mac.com/2020/10/21/iphone-12-battery-test/

"The standard model iPhone 12 lost almost exactly two hours of
battery-life when using 5G compared to 4G, and things were
even worse with the iPhone 12 Pro"

"The iPhone 12 managed 10h 23m on 4G, but that fell to
8h 25m on 5G, a drop of 1h 58m.

The iPhone 12 Pro dropped even further, from 11h 24m to 9h 6m
a fall of 2h 18m.

The site also compared to Android 5G smartphones,
and the comparisons mostly weren't good."

See also:

o First teardown video shows how Apple made the iPhone 12 thinner and lighter
https://9to5mac.com/2020/10/21/iphone-12-teardown-video/

"The comparison to the iPhone 11 is interesting because
Apple touts that the iPhone 12 is 11% thinner, 15% smaller,
and 16% lighter.

Getting a peek inside the iPhone 12 offers a clearer look
at how Apple was able to make the size reductions while
retaining the same 6.1-inch screen."

Nobody has ever verified the exagerated claims of Apple's battery life.

*Expect premature throttling of iPhone 12 to be horrific in about a year!*

"The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro battery life take a big hit over 5G"

o iPhone 12 battery life results are in - and they're not great
https://www.tomsguide.com/news/iphone-12-battery-life-results-are-in-and-theyre-not-great

"Overall, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro battery life is a bummer
over 5G, at least when surfing the web. So you may want to manually
switch to 4G in some cases to save extra juice."

Apple admitted secretly throttling to intentionally shorten device life!

Verbatim because apologists deny whatever they _hate_ about Apple
(as it turns out, apologists happen to hate a _lot_ of facts about Apple).

"Apple has included a Smart Data Mode feature that
automatically switches from 5G to 4G in order to save battery,
*but you might just want to turn 5G off*"

o iPhone 12 dies two hours faster when connected to a 5G network
https://bgr.com/2020/10/21/iphone-12-5g-battery-life-test/

"With AT&T's 5G network, the iPhone 12 lasted 8 hours & 25 minutes"
"The iPhone 12 Pro [lasted] with a battery life of 9 hours & 6 minutes"

"even with a higher refresh rate (which consumes power that much more
quickly), three out of the four Android phones outlasted the iPhone 12,
while two topped the iPhone 12 Pro. With the standard 60Hz refresh rate,
*all four Android phones beat the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro*"

Apple apologists are only capable of parroting what MARKETING feeds them.

Verbatim because apologists _hate_ facts about Apple that MARKETING didn't
feed them (which is why Apologists brazenly claim all facts are 'lies').

"Apple's iPhones tend to feature _considerably smaller batteries_
than most Android flagships"

"So if you˘re out checking your email or Twitter,
*your iPhone 12 will still use regular 4G, even if you're in a 5G area*"

o iPhone 12 only uses 5G when necessary to save battery life
https://www.theverge.com/2020/10/13/21514209/apple-iphone-12-5g-battery-smart-data-mode-apps-bandwidth-demand

"*Battery life is a big concern for Apple*, so much so that the company
reportedly skipped out on offering a faster 120Hz display on this year's
models, a feature that's become increasingly standard for nearly all
major Android flagships, out of a concern for battery life."

Apple cheaped out on batteries, again, charging users more for far less!

Update on Apple MARKETING spin on the atrocious iPhone 12 battery life:

VP of iPhone MARKETING Kaiann Drance explains how Apple
tries to make the iPhone 12 atrocious battery life "even better".

She comes up with all sorts of wild MARKETING-induced ideas, except...
o the idea of *NOT cheaping out on the battery* in the first place!

Apple podcast:
o Apple VP explains new iPhone 12 features in-depth
https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/apple-vp-explains-new-iphone-12-features-in-depth/id1120941458
"We're able to make a bunch of software optimizations throughout the
entire system to make battery life even better, and on top of that we
added a new feature called "Smart Data mode" that will allow you to
manage your 5G usage and battery life a bit better, so you can use
5G speeds when it really matters, and then for places where maybe it
doesn't matter as much it will revert to 4G LTE speeds to save your
battery life. And then the last part of it that I think is really
important is the work we've done with our carrier partners,
working with them on their network settings, on their deployment plan,
so they're also optimizing their settings together with iPhone to
optimize for battery life."

Those with normal adult cognitive skills note what she did NOT mention.
o Not cheaping out on the iPhone 12 batteries in the first place

Nor that similarly priced Android phones _kill_ the iPhone as reported in
o 5G Drains iPhone 12 Battery 20% Faster Than 4G in Benchmark
https://www.macrumors.com/2020/10/21/iphone-12-5g-battery-drain/

"*this falls short of the battery life of 5G Android phones*
under the same test"

The only people who believe what Apple MARKETING spins are the apologists.
