The iPhone 11 Pro Max directly succeeds the iPhone XS Max from last year, and in the act, Apple has also discontinued the latter, as well as the iPhone XS and iPhone 7. Last year, despite its hefty 6.5-inch display size, the iPhone XS Max only offered up to 1.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone X. This year, things are significantly different, and cater to the buyer’s requirements, as the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life is rated by Apple to be the longest of any model the company has ever produced. That’s certainly an impressive feat, and if you like to dig deeper into this, allow us to provide more info.
Apple’s Efficient A13 Bionic and Display Technology Helps to Provide Extended Battery Life
According to the stats Apple published on its website, the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life enters a whole new realm, as it’s apparently able to deliver up to 5 hours better endurance than the cell running in the iPhone XS Max. That means the latest device can deliver up to 6.5 hours better battery life than the 2017 iPhone X. Even the iPhone 11 Pro’s battery life is not something to treat lightly.
The newly announced 5.8-inch handset possesses battery that can last up to 4 hours more than the iPhone XS, so we’re confident that it will last longer than the iPhone XS Max too. Part of why the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life has improved considerably is thanks to the new display technology Apple’s using. Despite the fact that it’s able to reach a peak brightness of 800 nits and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits, it’s still able to deliver 15 percent improved efficiency compared to last year’s models, resulting in remarkable battery endurance.
Additionally, the presence of Apple’s A13 Bionic, which is rumored to be made using TSMC’s N7 Pro architecture, provides better battery management. According to Apple, the 4-core GPU found in the A13 Bionic is up to 15 percent power efficient, with the two performance cores running in the SoC being up to 30 percent more efficient than the performance cores found in last year’s A12 Bionic. The low-power cores running in Apple’s latest silicon are 40 percent more power-efficient than last year’s variant, which should explain why the iPhone 11 Pro Max battery life has been given a significant boost.
Now we have to wait and see how it fares against the Mate 30 Pro, Huawei’s upcoming flagship that’s fueled by an efficient 7nm+ EUV Kirin 990, and is expected to feature a hefty battery capacity as well. We certainly look forward to this showdown and will keep you updated on the latest.
