    The Takeaway

Apple fans know that even though a new series of iPhone will release every year, the company will be very discreet about its battery capacities. This has always been the case with the brand and this year, the iPhone 13 series launch on September 14, 2021, was no different. Although everything else on the hardware and software front was revealed, the battery capacity of the series smartphones were kept under wraps. However, that has just changed now.

The 13 series battery capacities have finally surfaced online and it looks promising. Now, as soon as Apple revealed the battery capacities of the devices to Chemtrec, a US Government agency, 9to5Mac immediately reported it. Now, the Chemtrec listing lists the battery capacities of the 13 series devices as Whr or Watt-hour. Folks at GizChina made a couple of calculations and reported the mAh conversions of these numbers.

In a market where 5000mAh batteries are very common, Apple’s 2,500mAh batteries seem to fall short.
