Like previous launches of new iPhones, Apple rarely reveals the full specifications of the new iPhone. Usually there are still some specifications that are still a puzzle.
In the iPhone 12 line for example, Apple keeps battery capacity a secret. Some time ago, a document from a Brazilian certification body revealed the iPhone 12’s battery capacity was 2,815 mAh.
Later, this information was amplified by a teardown video that unpacked the innards of the iPhone 12. VIdeo titled “Apple iPhone 12- Teardown” on The Black MOB YouTube channel was probably the first to show the dismantling of the iPhone 12.
As compiled from Phone Arena, Sunday (10/25/2020), the iPhone 12 stripped down on video is a variant of Pacific Blue color. When the side of the screen is opened, there is an array of components in the iPhone 12, such as batteries, motherboards, and 5G modems.
In the battery section, there is clearly a description of its capacity, namely 2,815 mAh, according to the contents in the Brazilian certification document. That figure is 10 percent smaller than the iPhone 11 which has a battery capacity of 3,110 mAh.
Although the capacity is smaller, it doesn’t mean the battery life of the iPhone 12 isn’t as high as the iPhone 11. Apple claims the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro batteries can last up to 17 hours to play video, or the same as their predecessor devices.
The teardown video also shows the 6.1-inch OLED Display on the iPhone 12 thinner when paired with the iPhone 11. Similarly, the taptic engine on the iPhone 12 is smaller than the iPhone 11. iPhone 12 uses an “L” letter logic board.
An interesting part is the appearance of a magnetic ring that works to attach MagSafe accessories, including a new wireless charger that Apple introduced. The charger has a 15 watt output.
There appears to be a coil and part of the ring on which there is a circular magnetic arrangement. Apple says MagSafe is compatible with all the latest iPhone models, namely the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone Pro, and iPhone Pro Max.
However, it is known that it can also work for some Android phones, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Google Pixel 5.
