When Apple launched the iPhone 13 series, the company was rather vague on the battery life of the phones except to say it will be about 1.5-2.5 hours better compared to previous models. We later found out the more exact sizes, and it turns out that Apple’s claim of 2.5 hours better battery life was not an exaggeration.
This is according to a battery test conducted by Mrwhosetheboss on YouTube, where he compared the entire iPhone 13 series against its predecessors to see how it adds up, and the results are actually pleasantly surprising because in the test, the iPhone 13 Pro Max managed to squeeze out close to 10 hours of battery life (9 hours 52 minutes to be exact).
Even the smallest of the iPhone 13 series, the iPhone 13 mini, managed 6 hours and 26 minutes. Comparing it against older iPhones like the iPhone 12, that only managed 5 hours and 54 minutes, while the iPhone 11 only got 4 hours and 20 minutes. The 2020 iPhone SE was kind of disappointing with just 3 hours and 38 minutes.
It should be noted that this can hardly be called a scientific test and it doesn’t necessarily represent real-world usage, but it is clear that the battery in the iPhone 13 Pro Max is a beast and if you’re looking for a reason to upgrade, battery life alone could be a good enough reason why.
