Disassembled, the iPhone 12 battery capacity was also revealed

Teknoku.me – Like the launch of new iPhones before, Apple rarely reveals the complete 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 the battery capacity a secret. Some time ago, a document from a Brazilian certification body revealed the iPhone 12’s battery capacity is 2,815 mAh.

Later, this information was reinforced by a teardown video that uncovered the innards of the iPhone 12. A VIdeo entitled “Apple iPhone 12- Teardown” on the Black MOB YouTube channel is probably the first to show the disassembly of the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 stripped down in the video is a color variant. Pacific Blue. When the side of the screen is opened, you can see the arrangement of components in the iPhone 12, such as the battery, motherboard, and 5G modem.

On the battery, there is a clear description of its capacity, which is 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.

Even though the capacity is smaller, it doesn’t mean the iPhone 12’s battery life isn’t as high as the iPhone 11. Apple claims the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro batteries can last up to 17 hours of video playback, or the same as their predecessors.

The teardown video also shows the 6.1-inch OLED screen on the iPhone 12 is thinner when compared to the iPhone 11. Likewise, the taptic engine on the iPhone 12 is smaller than the iPhone 11. iPhone 12 uses a logic board shaped like the letter “L”.

The interesting part is the appearance of the magnetic ring that serves to glue MagSafe accessories, including the new wireless charger that Apple introduced. This charger has an output of 15 watts.

You can see a coil and a part of the ring on which there is an arrangement of circular magnets. Apple says MagSafe is compatible with all of 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. The full iPhone 12 disassembly video can be seen at the following link.
