The battery capacities of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 have reportedly been revealed thanks to certifications shared by the Brazilian telecommunications regulator Anatel. The new reveal comes amid the rollout of the iPhone 12 series in global markets. Documents from Anatel also indicate that the iPhone 12 Pro will be produced at Foxconn’s facilities in Brazil and India – in addition to China. Apple has previously used Foxconn units in both countries to manufacture smartphones, including the iPhone 11.
According to a report from Technoblog, Anatel has certified the iPhone 12 mini in the country with a 2,227mAh battery. This capacity is greater than that of the iPhone SE (2020) which contains an 1821 mAh battery. The blog also reports that the iPhone 12 has been certified with a 2815mAh battery, which is lower than the 3110mAh battery available on the iPhone 11.
Apple does not disclose the battery capacity of its iPhone models as general practice. However, the official listing on the Apple site shows that the iPhone 12 mini can deliver up to 15 hours of video playback on a single charge. That’s a few hours less than the 17 hours of video playback claimed for the iPhone 11. Nonetheless, the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro have the same 17 hours of video playback.
The battery capacity of iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max is still unknown. However, that could emerge at some point with the availability of the iPhone 12 Pro as well as the iPhone 12 – slated for October 23 in the US and other initial markets.
Details of the iPhone 12 Pro’s certification from Anatel show that it will be manufactured at Foxconn factories in Brazil and India, alongside its production center in China. A report from the English daily Business Standard in August claimed that the iPhone 12 would be made locally in India by 2021 at a factory in Wistron.
In July, Apple started producing the iPhone 11 in the country. The Cupertino company also produces models including the original iPhone XR, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE.
