In a surprising turn of events, Apple has refrained from officially disclosing the battery capacities of their latest releases, the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2. However, thanks to a meticulous perusal of a Chinese regulatory database by MacRumors, we’ve managed to unearth this essential information. Let’s delve into the intriguing details.
Unchanged Powerhouses The database reveals that the 41mm and 45mm variants of the Apple Watch Series 9 are equipped with 282 mAh and 308 mAh batteries, respectively. Interestingly, these capacities mirror those of their Series 8 counterparts. This continuity aligns seamlessly with Apple’s assertion that the Series 9 models boast the same impressive 18-hour battery life as their predecessors.
A Bigger Boost Moving on to the Apple Watch Ultra 2, it flaunts a robust 564 mAh battery, marking a 4% increase from the original Ultra’s 542 mAh powerhouse. However, despite this enhancement, Apple maintains that the Ultra 2’s battery life remains consistent at 36 hours. This anomaly is attributed to the Ultra 2’s upgraded features, including a brighter display, which may offset the extra power.
A Recap of Apple Watch Battery Capacities:
- Apple Watch Series 8 (41mm): 282 mAh
- Apple Watch Series 9 (41mm): 282 mAh
- Apple Watch Series 8 (45mm): 308 mAh
- Apple Watch Series 9 (45mm): 308 mAh
- Apple Watch Ultra: 542 mAh
- Apple Watch Ultra 2: 564 mAh
The iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max also revealed their battery capacities in this database, as reported earlier today. Notably, the regular iPhone 15’s battery capacity remains elusive, leaving enthusiasts eager for more details.
