pple’s new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are strange to technology companies. Bigger, heavier, thicker than last year’s model, Apple is countering the normal trend to release increasingly thinner and lighter phones. It’s no coincidence that the new Heftia iPhone promises significantly longer battery life than the iPhone XS and XS Max. Excellent for 4 hours on small phones and 5 hours on large phones.

For years, people have asked why companies don’t make their phones a little bigger and heavier to extend battery life. And it looks like Apple is finally paying attention to the iPhone 11 Pro lineup.
Big, heavy and long battery life
To take the battery leap forward, Apple’s last few upgrades include iPhone 7 (2 hours better battery life than 6S), iPhone X (2 hours better than iPhone 7), and XS and XS Max. (Because it was more power efficient than software, it was 30 minutes, 1 hour, and 30 minutes longer than X, respectively). Instead of making a pitiful attempt to extend battery life like the XS, Apple offers twice the best battery life update in a form factor approximately the same size as the XS line.
But this is the movement we have seen before. Last year’s XS phone was inferior to the iPhone XR, which could be Apple’s longest phone ever made. how? Apple decided to sell a larger and heavier mobile phone with a larger battery, so it combined the same efficiency improvements that Apple did with the XS mobile phone.
Increased efficiency and battery size are obvious formulas for extending battery life, and Apple 11 seems to apply the lesson in the iPhone 11 Pro model. The new 11 Pro phone is about the same thickness and weight as the standard 11. The small iPhone 11 Pro is about a quarter inch thicker and about 0.5 ounces heavier than the XS. This is probably because Apple added a battery to the new model.
How big the battery of the new iPhone is is likely not to be known until someone tears it, and probably won’t be comparable to numbers reaching 4,500mAh, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Note phones. A battery that is almost guaranteed to be much larger than what Apple offers. And it goes without saying that the 18,000mAh monster that Energizer wanted to make (unfortunately not funded). However, the improvements here are welcome. Especially when battery claims continue.
The battery is just a part of the story
Apple states that improving the battery itself is only part of the story. The company also stresses that 11 Pro’s new display is “up to 15% power efficient” and that iOS 13 itself is designed to operate more efficiently. There is also a new custom designed power management unit (PMU) that Apple is key to providing improved battery life. However, as we saw last year on XS phones, this kind of upgrade was only available to date. At some point it will be the size of the battery.
Over the past decade, Apple has historically actively pursued thinness. Its battery is slimmer at the expense of battery life and camera module protrusion, and its laptop is thinner at the price of ports and problematic keyboards. With iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, it seems that the trend is finally reversed by prioritizing features over forms.
