iPhone 8

iPhone 8 has a 1,821mAh battery, 7% smaller than iPhone 7

Apple decreased the battery capacity in iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

When Apple announced the three new phones earlier this week, the company did not mention the battery specs inside each model. The company only said that the new A11 chip is more efficient and you should expect about the same battery life from iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

According to information from the certification authorities in China, Apple has actually downgraded the batteries inside both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

TENAA lists a 1,821mAh battery for iPhone 8 and 2,675mAh for iPhone 8 Plus. This is a 7% decrease from the 1,960mAh of iPhone 7, and 7.8% from 2,900mAh battery in iPhone 7 Plus. The battery specs of the iPhone X have not been mentioned in the listing.

But Apple is quite confident in the efficiency of A11 bionic that powers the new iPhone line-up. A11 is a six core processor with two high-performance and four more efficient cores. iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X also support fast and wireless charging, enabled if you purchase additional accessories.

After all, you can expect around the same battery life from your new iPhone, compared with the previous generation. However, it would be even better if Apple used the same or larger cells for its new models.
